Chris Jericho Says Impact Offered Him a Seven Figure Salary for 4 Matches

Feb 17, 2019 - by James Walsh

Chris Jericho spoke with Wrestling Observer Radio for a new interview discussing his signing with AEW and more. Highlights are below per Ringside News:

On talking with WWE about a potential deal before he went to AEW: “In my mind, I was like from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar at this point in time to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That was just kind of the watermark that I had. So for me to go back to Vince, it was like: ‘I want that type of a deal’…Because that’s the way it should be in my mind.”

On Impact offering him a mid-seven figure deal for four matches: “When I was starting to talk with Tony and you know, I was negotiating with New Japan and even Impact as well– Like I said, the thing is, Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four-match series. Like it was a really good amount of money. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well. I think people kinda gloss over Impact at this point in time. When they believe in something, they have money for it.”
