Chris Jericho remains confident that he is still amongst the best performers in the wrestling world.

The veteran AEW star, who turned 53 in November, has so far shown no signs of slowing down an in-ring career that begun in Ponoka, Alberta, Canada on 2nd October 1990. Jericho’s opponent on that day was close friend and future WWE Intercontinental Champion, Lance Storm.

Despite a long laundry list of career achievements and a successful music career as lead singer of rock band Fozzy, Jericho has no intention of following fellow AEW star Sting into retirement any time soon.

During a recent appearance on Gabby AF, Jericho noted his ability to still compete at the highest level as the reason for continuing his storied career:

“I don’t really think about that sort of thing, I kinda just live in the now.

You talked being 33 years in the wrestling industry; I’m like, ‘Wow, really? It doesn’t feel that way,’ because I can still have the best match on any given show.

Not every night, but you know, a couple of weeks ago, I wrestled [Konosuke] Takeshita, and that was the best match of the show. You look through like, ‘Okay, there are still great moments for Jericho, a lot that I can do.”

Chris Jericho Comments On Potential WWE Return

Despite being a driving force behind the global success of AEW since joining the company in 2019, it is widely believed that Jericho will return to WWE for one final run before hanging up his boots.

The Canadian star, however, recently stated that he is in no hurry to return to WWE regardless of the company being different to the one he departed in 2017.
