Every Wrestler Signed By Wrestling Promotions In 2019

20. Chris Jericho (AEW)

AEW/WWE

AEW's unequivocal crown jewel. No, not Chase Owens or a poorly conceived show in Saudi Arabia, but WWE perennial and veritably industry legend Chris Jericho.

Jericho was the biggest of the surprises at All Elite's Double or Nothing rally, following up on his unexpected All In cameo and revised role as wrestling's maverick mercenary.

The fledgling company will be built around the prestige of Y2J. That nickname belies Jericho's advancing years - and turning 49 this year, he's no spring chicken - but thanks to his constant reinvention, the Canadian remains as relevant a figure today as he did ten, even twenty years ago.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
