Another legend, Kurt Angle, was full of praise for Jericho’s immense success over the years, especially at this age. In his recent q&a session with the Facebook Pro Wrestling Junkies, Angle said, He’s my age, and how he’s still able to go at this level like he’s doing right now, especially after 25-30 years in the ring, he’s phenomenal.”

Chris Jericho started his wrestling career in the Independent Circuit back in 1990. He made his WCW debut in 1996 and became the Cruiserweight Champion. Y2J debuted in WWE/F in 1999 and won multiple championships and memorable matches throughout his career.

After serving WWE for two decades, Jericho came to AEW last year. Due to his experience, Le Champion is not only a wrestler but also one of the creative heads in the company.

With his status, in-ring, and on-air abilities, Kurt Angle believes, Jericho “will go down in history as top 5 of all time.”

Kurt Angle retired from in-ring action at last year’s WrestleMania after he lost to Baron Corbin. After that, Angle specifically worked in WWE backstage production.

He was released in April this year. WWE offered him many posts in the company but Angle refused, in order to focus on his nutrition business.

The All-American hero is not wrong. It is only a matter of time until Jericho enters the Hall of Fame.
