Jericho is a future WWE Hall of Famer.

Over the past year or so, the way AEW has booked Chris Jericho has received extensive criticism, and this has led to social media speculation that Jericho could eventually return to WWE.

In a recent interview with Gabby AF, Jericho discussed whether he plans on leaving Tony Khan’s promotion, and Jericho outright stated that currently, he has no plans to leave AEW:

“I love working here. I love working with, not even for, with Tony Khan. WWE is a completely different animal now than when I left in 2017. It’s been six years. It’s not something I’ve really thought about. I like watching and reading about what’s going on, the buzz that they have, but I also like my company and I helped start AEW.”
“I don’t really see any reason why I would want to leave at this point. Never say that I wouldn’t go, but I have zero plans of that. I like it here and I like the people I work with. I enjoy coming to work every week, which was not always the case in WWE, and it’s weird how that is the case here, but it’s a different vibe and I have a lot of fun here in AEW.”

Whilst it’s understandable that Jericho wouldn’t state that he is leaving his current employer, Jericho is destined for a WWE Hall of Fame spot one day, and when Jericho retires and leaves AEW, it would make sense for Jericho to return to WWE in some capacity.
