Chris Jericho would love AEW to sign Roman Reigns, should the former WWE and Universal Champion's name become available.

Speaking to WhatCulture's Adam Wilbourn on who the company might go for in the future, he said; "I'd put Roman Reigns at the top of that wishlist for anybody. Not only is he a great worker but he's such a cool guy. If they just let him be him he'd be the biggest star in the industry, for real. That'd be a guy I'd love to get my hands on for sure."

On AEW's and his own character's growth, he noted; "I anticipated it was gonna be big, I didn't anticipate it was going to be as big as it was so quickly. I just like being able to tell these stories, and we have total freedom with AEW to do what's right. Are we competition to WWE? Of course, by proxy, but we don't think about it that way. We just wanna give people an alternative and let the artists be artists."
