Chris Jericho is having the time of his life in AEW. He's having a career renaissance and is one of the best heels in professional wrestling right now. His Inner Circle stable is one of the most popular in wrestling and weekly on Dynamite, he seems to be crushing it.
In the past, Chris Jericho also said that he's more interested in getting talent over than being the center of attention. On his Saturday Night Special, Jericho named a few people he saw as the next big thing in AEW.
Chris Jericho includes Orange Cassidy, Jungle Boy and Sammy Guevara as future AEW stars
Chris Jericho said that it was difficult to name which wrestlers would be huge stars in the future for AEW. He said:
"Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Orange Cassidy have to be in there for sure. Sammy Guevara. Who else is in there I can think of? There's so many great performers in our company that are just poised to become huge stars. Let's see, I'm using my thoughts wisely here. Because if you're only going to pick five, Thunder Rosa, I think will be a big star for us. Penelope Ford. There's another one. All of them will be huge, huge stars."
