While this might seem arrogant to someone who has not been following Jericho ever since he left WWE in September, but he did change the wrestling world. He single-handedly brought more eyes to New Japan Pro Wrestling with his classic match with Kenny Omega. The match was given a 5 star review by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, a feat achieved by a few WWE matches since the last five years.

Jericho contributed immensely to WWE

His main contribution, however, has to be with AEW. He put the “Bubbly” gimmick over in quick time and has taken Sammy Guevara among others under his wing with the ‘Inner Circle’ faction. He became the inaugural AEW Champion after defeating ‘Hangman’ Adam Page and this man has put over countless talent despite his old age.

Darby Allin and Jungle Boy are among the few ‘nobodies’ who after their match with him gained credibility. In the wrestling business a legend is supposed to help put the new talent over and Jericho has been doing that. This proves his greatness with the understanding of the business.

Wrestling is not just about putting signatures and finishers. It is also about the mic. With the ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, the man has proven that he can still bury people left, right and center. Check out his ‘Fight for the  Fallen Promo’ just to see his class and greatness.

His podcast is known for bringing in recently released WWE stars. Guests include Jon Moxley (formerly Dean Ambrose), Brodie Lee (formerly ‘Luke Harper) and TheRevolt (formerly ‘The Revival’). Being great in wrestling is not just about the ring, flavor and content is also a necessity.

Le Champion may retire in the next few years. However, as of 2020, this man can easily claim to be the best, and no one would blink an eye. The future seems bright for ‘le Champion’.
