Chris Jericho hasn't always been 'Le Champion' fans know him as today.


At 49-years-old, Chris Jericho is as popular of a performer now as he's ever been. That's a testament to his innate ability to reinvent himself, remain relevant and change the culture wherever he goes.

Watching him work his magic over the last year in AEW has been a real treat for fans, and in 2019 alone, he had one of his best all-around years in wrestling to date. With the AEW World Championship still draped over his shoulder and a win over Japanese legend Hiroshi Tanahashi from Wrestle Kingdom 14 in his back pocket, his 2020 is off to a strong start as well.

Jericho is also known as one of the most selfless wrestlers in the history of the business, sometimes to a fault. His 2013 run with WWE is probably the most prominent example, specifically when he lost to Fandango at WrestleMania 29.

Thankfully, Y2J has done a better job in recent years of picking his spots and putting people over when it's most necessary. In fact, he's gone undefeated in singles competition since signing with AEW, and as a result, he has felt more special than almost anyone else on the entire roster.
