Chris Jericho Stepping Down From AEW Role

Chris Jericho AEW

Chris Jericho will have less of a presence on one AEW show but don’t worry all of you caught up in the Jericho Vortex, he’s looking to more than make up for it.

Chris Jericho was AEW’s biggest name when the company was founded in 2019. Since then, Jericho became the first man to become AEW World Champion and has been a constant presence over the last five years.

In 2021, AEW launched a second weekly TV show in Rampage and since its beginning, Chris Jericho has found a place at the commentary table. However, Jericho’s broadcast duties are no more.

Chris Jericho Gives Up AEW Rampage Role

In a backstage promo on the 31st of May edition of Rampage, Chris Jericho announced he would no longer be commentating on Rampage to focus his energy elsewhere. Jericho noted the move was to allow him to “spend more time on Dynamite and Collision, probably three or four or five segments a week, cuz you know I love having my face on TV.”

“Daddy Magic” Matt Menard who used to be a card-carrying member of The Jericho Appreciation Society has filled in for Jericho on Rampage commentary duties in the past and looks to be Jericho’s replacement.

Chris Jericho is the current FTW Champion and his Learning Tree now includes both Big Bill and Bryan Keith. Jericho was recently confronted again by the man he defeated for his title, HOOK, but HOOK backed off after seemingly finding a new ally in former AEW World Champion Samoa Joe.
