-- Despite what Chris Jericho said last week that jumping to TNA Wrestling was never an option, Jericho did in fact speak with people high up in TNA about working for them before he eventually signed a new deal with WWE. No word on why Jericho would deny it at this point but his recent comment was false.

thought so, i mean the impact zone was like 20-30 mins from his house wasnt it? on top of that the scedule is alot smaller and being a big star he would have pull behind him, he would get more time for his band and other stuff, and probally be in most of the main event matches, or close to it. it would also be a new experiance and a chance to work with some of the best young talent like aj styles, daniels, joe, kaz, harris, storm, roode, the list goes on. i also remember in an interview not far back when he was talking about working on a ring design which had five sides, then when asked about where he would be heading, he said he wasnt sure, but the 4 sided ring could never hold jericho.
Qouth the draven, nevermore.

Quote Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the belief within the business is that Chris Jericho is destined to eventually come to Impact Wrestling.

It was noted in this report that the IWGP Champion’s previous statements about not wanting to do anything that would get WWE Chairman Vince McMahon mad isn’t nearly as strong as it was months ago.

Despite him having Impact on his cruise, I still can't see him working TV for another North American wrestling company, over than E.
 
He's done this for two decades of playing TV wrestling companies off against eachother and yet he's always been loyal to Vince.
 
I expect much of the same here and think he's using Impact as a bargaining tool for a bigger slice of the E pie with the new Fox deal.

There's no reason for Chris to come to Impact the money wouldn't be worth it and I don't think there's a lot of decent names worth going over to wrestle and potentially job out to. 


Stick with WWE and NJPW Chris that's your best option there's too many guys in New Japan to wrestle to want to venture to the glorified bingo hall that is Impact wrestling.

I wouldn’t mind this happening. Jericho is in the twilight of his career, in WWE he now has little value other than being a guy who can still be entertaining but his name value isn’t close to what it was in his prime now and his role in WWE is ultimately to put others over.
There’s nothing really wrong with that but I just think at this point he is better served to help a struggling promotion where he would have some real name value.

Probably won’t happen though unless Vince has really soured on Jericho and no longer has much interest in using him.

From what I understand WWE brass didn't really take to Chris Jericho's Cruise idea. Originally Jericho wanted b-talent from the main roster and NXT guys to be on the show instead, along with a few indie guys, but WWE turned him down and I think Jericho took offense to that a bit, so that's when he reached out to other companies. This in turn led to him establishing communication lines with these other companies and after his work in NJPW, and now his feud with whoever that guy is from Impact, it sounds like Jericho has gone rogue, and to hell with WWE.


I certainly could be wrong there, but that's what SEEMS to have happened at least.

Oh, and for the record, I would say Chris Jericho's name value has never been bigger in his entire career. He's easily in the top 5 biggest names of guys still working today, aside from maybe AJ Styles, he's probably #1.
