Chris Jericho Reveals Who He Originally Wanted In His New AEW Faction

Chris Jericho has told Busted Open Radio that he originally wanted to form a new AEW faction alongside then-on-screen pals Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston.

The Jericho Appreciation Society, which is comprised of Chris, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia and 2point0, wasn’t the star’s initial plan post-Inner Circle. No, instead, Jericho fancied buddying up with Mox and Kingston as a top tier babyface collective on AEW telly.

Some All Elite fans out there will be gutted that this didn’t end up happening.

It wasn’t until Jericho heard AEW fans boo the phrase “sports entertainment” during a Kingston promo that wheels started turning in his head. Suddenly, the Appreciation Society leader realised that he could piss the hardcore fanbase off by leaning on a Vince McMahon-ism.

That’s when all thoughts of linking up with Moxley and Eddie went flying out the nearest window. Staying face wasn’t something Jericho wanted to do after that – he was determined to reinvent himself as a heel yet again. Perhaps the Jericho/Moxley/Kingston trio is something AEW can come back to in a few years.

Or, maybe it was never destined to be a thing at all.
