Chris Jericho is able to do what he wants, when he wants, and he seems more open than ever to working with wrestling promotions that aren’t WWE.
Jericho has worked a few matches for New Japan Pro Wrestling this year, and he’s the current IWGP Intercontinental Champion.
Fans have been wondering if Jericho could pop up in Impact Wrestling, and when a fan recently asked Jericho if he would consider working with Impact he responded with the following:
Of course! https://t.co/MfRvVkNgCK

Chris Jericho is known to be friends with Don Callis, and he’s reportedly the person who suggested that Impact hire Callis.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion loves to keep his next move a secret, but according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, even though no one’s saying anything, the feeling is that Jericho is destined to work with Impact at some point.
Earlier this year Jericho originally stated that he wouldn’t work a wrestling show on US soil out of respect for Vince McMahon, but it’s now being said that the “not wanting to do anything that would get Vince mad doctrine” isn’t as strong as it once was.
