Chris Jericho opens up about influencing a new generation of WWE Superstars
Chris Jericho also spoke about what it felt like influencing other wrestlers. Jericho specifically talked about his return to WWE in 2016 where he wrestled Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Enzo and Cass, all of whom used to fans of him when they were younger:
When you influence somebody to where they're excited to meet you, excited to have a match with you, or whatever it may be, again, to know you have influenced somebody's life, influence somebody's career, their career choices and their career path, that's one thing I found very invigorating when I came back to WWE in 2016, is that I was getting the chance to work with Kevin Owens, and Seth Rollins, and Enzo and Cass, and all these guys that were big fans of mine throughout the years.
Chris Jericho also spoke about how wrestling the next generation of stars taught him new things and added that the respect he had from younger wrestlers is one of the reasons behind AEW's success:
And that was really cool. It also made my career so much more vital and relevant because it showed me that I could also learn some new things from some of these guys that were on their way up, that were influenced by me. So, it's a real honor and something that I don't take very lightly, and one of the reasons I think AEW has been such a success, because of that level of type of respect they have for me and I have of them.
