The latest episode of Chris Jericho's Saturday Night Special series on YouTube saw touch on a few of his dream All Elite Wrestling signings.
Namedropped first was WWE's Cesaro, to whom 'The Demo God' said "now we just have to get Cesaro in AEW and then we'll really stir it up. I think Cesaro in AEW would be one of our top guys."
As far as other performers go, Jericho mentioned WWE main-eventer Roman Reigns and high-flying midcarder Ricochet, NJPW's Will Ospreay and Kota Ibushi, and Impact Wrestling announcer and executive Don Callis. Regarding Ricochet, Jericho said that he would "work with him in a second."
'Le Champion' has spoken of his appreciation for Reigns in the past, telling WhatCulture's Adam Wilbourn that 'The Big Dog' should be near the top of the list for any wrestling promotion. "If they just let him be him," Jericho said, "he'd be the biggest star in the industry, for real."
None of the aforementioned names are a realistic target for AEW as each is under contract elsewhere. Regardless, each would make a fine addition to any roster in completely different ways. Jericho isn't wrong.
