Chris Jericho Compares Himself To Music Legend

Chris Jericho AEW

Chris Jericho has discussed his longevity in wrestling.

Chris Jericho made his in-ring debut back in 1990, and since then he’s gone on to wrestle for nigh-on every major promotion in the world. Despite his veteran status, Jericho remains a fixture on AEW television and he’s determined not to slow down anytime soon.

Speaking in a new interview with TMZ Sports, Jericho discussed his desire to keep performing, explaining he’s taking inspiration from Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones’ original members might now be in their 80s, but they continue to perform at a high-level night in and night out.

“Mick is 80, and you look at this guy and he lives in a different planet,” Jericho said. “I think it’s because he’s been doing it since he was a teenager. I think that’s the same with me. I don’t see myself as 53, I don’t feel 53, I don’t work like I’m 53, I just do what I do and I think it’s more instinct at this point in time…

If I didn’t think I could still compete at the highest of levels, it wouldn’t matter if I’m 53, 33, 73, I wouldn’t do it. But for me right now I’m excited about AEW.”
