Kayla Harrison, an MMA fighter, has stated that she could beat up any male pro wrestler, specifically mentioning former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho.

Harrison is a member of American Top Team, the stable that is presently warring with Jericho and The Inner Circle in All Elite Wrestling. However, unlike her colleagues Paige VanZant, Junior Dos Santos, and others, the PFL star has yet to participate in the promotion.

Kayla Harrison revealed if she plans to enter the flashy world of professional wrestling in a recent interview with “MMA Hour“. She stated that she is uninterested in the art form since it is just too simple for her.

Harrison also stated that she is capable of defeating any male pro wrestler. She also said she’d eat the former AEW Champion “for breakfast” and referred to him as an “old, washed-up has-been.”

“It would just be too easy, don’t you think? There’s levels and we would just be on a different level. That’s why I’m not interested. Because, what’s fun in that? I want an actual challenge. Going and beating up people who hang out in their mom’s basement is like, ‘cool’, claimed Harrison.

“I would beat up all the guys on those rosters, 100%, I know everyone’s like, ‘Oh, girls can’t beat up guys.’ Chris Jericho? I would eat him for breakfast. Are you kidding me? That old, washed-up has-been, are you kidding me? I would grab him by his hair and throw him around,” confidently added Kayla.

Is a Kayla Harrison vs Chris Jericho feud inevitable?

While the MMA fighter downplayed the possibility of entering the professional wrestling business, her savage strikes against Chris Jericho suggest otherwise. There’s a chance Harrison may be promoted alongside her American Top Team teammates to face Chris Jericho as part of All Elite Wrestling.

In the meantime, at Full Gear 2021, Le Champion will settle his disputes with American Top Team in a headline bout. At the pay-per-view on November 13th, he and his Inner Circle teammates would face off against the MMA team.

Kayla Harrison might make an immediate impact in professional wrestling due to her natural charm and fighting ability. However, unless she verifies anything or appears in AEW, this is only a guess.
