This past Tuesday was the AEW Double or Nothing Rally and we learned a number of new details pertaining to AEW. The biggest shock of them all being the inclusion of Chris Jericho. Jericho being there was not a huge shock but what was, was that Jericho actually signed a contract with the company.

According to Dave Meltzer on last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer reported that Jericho has signed a three-year contract with AEW. This is huge as yes, Jericho worked with New Japan Pro Wrestling over the last year but never signed an actual deal with the company.
Today, Jericho was on Busted Open Radio and dropped some more news about AEW, why he signed with the company and hinted to Kenny Omega also being All Elite bound.

Based off of this Jericho is stating that AEW could get a really good TV deal that many would not expect. Also with saying, “Because a lot of people don’t know don’t know Kenny, or Cody, or the Bucks. We know them. But your average fan doesn’t,” could that have been Jericho accidentally spilling the beans on Kenny Omega signing with All Elite Wrestling?
