AEW star Chris Jericho has made an audacious claim that some “higher ups” want to see him in a faction with two current WWE Superstars.
Chris Jericho has been no stranger to a faction since joining All Elite Wrestling at the company’s inception in early 2019. On the inaugural episode of Dynamite, Le Champion joined together with Sammy Guevara, Santana, Ortiz, and Jake Hager to form the enduring Inner Circle.
More recently, Jericho took Hager with him into his new group, The Jericho Appreciation Society where the first AEW World Champion is also supported by Guevara once again as well as Matt Menard, Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia, Tay Melo, and Anna Jay.
Now Chris Jericho has responded to a fan on social media who commented that they want to see Jericho in a group with WWE stars and fellow Canadians, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Jericho’s response indicates that there are some people in power in the wrestling business that also agree:
“Hmmm…well Some higher ups want that to happen sooner than later! #tampering”

The “#tampering” remark at the end of Chris Jericho’s post is sure to cause a stir given the recent news that WWE had apparently contacted AEW talent that are under contract about a move to the sports entertainment giant.
