However, Jericho’s one of the main talent lies outside the ring as he mentors and grooms the newer talents of tomorrow. Recently he welcomed MJF into his ‘Inner Circle. The duo defeated the rest of the stable members and earned the chance to face the AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks.

Recently fans trolled and criticized Jericho for his ‘out-of-shape’ body, to which Jericho aptly clapped back. Now putting his words into action, the ‘Demo God’ of AEW recently shared a post, showcasing his improved physique.

He captioned the post with “Good lighting in this closet!” Jericho could be mimicking his apprentice MJF‘s recent Tweet where he showed off his physique.

Remarkably, fellow AEW superstar Thunder Rosa trolled MJF as she said the superstar’s abs were an outcome of the lighting and not the exercises. Jericho could also be alluding to Rosa’s comments.

In Jericho’s post, AEW stars like Brandi Rhodes, Sonny Kiss, Britt Baker, and WWE stars Drake Maverick and Kevin Nash lauded his physique in the comment section.

Chris Jericho responds to Jim Cornette’s comments on him

Recently, former WWE booker and commentator Jim Cornette criticized Jericho over his views. He called the ‘Le Champion‘ a “filthy human being” and denounced his friendship with him.

Cornette said, “You are a filthy human being for supporting a filthy, disgusting pig. And that’s why you get my f–k you. We are no longer friends and will never be friends again.”

To this, Jericho responded rather classily and said on Monday, “My response to that is this….have at it! You’re entitled to ur opinions & Im honored to provide content that helps u pay your bills. Best of luck to both of u!”
