Juventud Guerrera Details Tony Khan's Reaction To His AEW Match With Chris Jericho
Juvi was the third Trial of Jericho
MJF’s Trials of Jericho allowed AEW to get creative and squeeze out some surprises, with the likes of Nick Gage and Juventud Guerrera appearing on Dynamite to face Le Champion.
Juvi was Chris Jericho’s third opponent in the series, with the two harking back to their feud in WCW back in 1998, and now in an interview with The Wrestling Inc. Daily, Juventud has spoken about the experience:
“I’m still feeling a rush. I feel excited,” Guerrera stated. “I feel great. I was talking to Jericho on his podcast, I was telling him how living as a wrestler is basically a dream. I was living a dream again and again and again. Every accomplishment in my career is basically a dream come true, which actually, I’m living a dream right now.”
After the match, Juvi spoke with AEW President Tony Khan, and TK gave him his thoughts on the bout:
“He gave me a thumbs up. I went back to the locker room,” Guerrera said. “He was right there at Gorilla position. He got up. He shook my hand. He said, ‘Great match, good match. Thank you very much,’ and before I came out, when I was going from my locker room to the stage, I heard somebody saying, ‘Juvi! Juvi! Juvi!’ I was like, who’s calling me? Then I turn around. It was TK, or Tony Khan, and he was like, ‘Thank you Juvi for being here. It’s a pleasure for me to have you on this show.’ I was in shock.
“I was like, wow, the boss is welcoming me in this way. It was a tremendous moment. It gave me this good feeling of wow, this is something different. This is not just a major company, this is something that has value. Somebody actually values your work and the years that you’ve put in this business. It was outstanding I just want to say thank you to Tony Khan.”
