Before signing with AEW, Chris Jericho had some interesting offers from New Japan and Impact Wrestling, who apparently made a hefty offer to Y2J.
“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar is to WWE, as far as what I bring to the table” Jericho said, during an appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio . That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince [McMahon], I want that kind of a deal.”
Jericho went on the detail the offer he received from Impact.
“When I was starting to talk with Tony [Khan, AEW], and New Japan, and Impact as well, Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures, they have some cash as well. When they believe in something, they have money for it.”
Undertaker’s WWE Status
With WrestleMania 35 on the horizon, many people have been wondering if we will see The Undertaker appear, or compete in a match, at WWE’s annual event.
Speculation grew when it was announced that the Undertaker would be appearing at Starrcast II, which is taking place during AEW’s Double or Nothing weekend.
According to PWInsider, Taker is still associated with WWE, has not left the company, and is simply taking advantage of his power to take outside signing appearances.
Undertaker’s appearance at Starrcast II is being described as a “standalone experience”, and he is no way associated with AEW.
