Tony Khan needs to think about the future of his wrestlers as soon as possible, given that some of them are running out of contracts soon. Chris Jericho is one of those whose contract expires in 2024. In an interview with talksports, he spoke about his situation: “We’ll see how it plays out,” Jericho said.
“I’m happy with my contract and I know in a year-and-a-half when my contract is done, we’ll have some negotiations to discuss and that’s how it goes”. “Until then, I want to do the best performances that I can, put on the best shows and the best stories, keep the people interested happy, and excited and when that contract is up, I’ll be rewarded for it”.
Chris Jericho's opinion on MJF
The MJF shocked the wrestling world when he started to call out Tony Khan during the Dynamite, and he complained about the contract and the money. “After 30 years in this business, I’ve learned if it doesn’t have anything to do with me I stay the hell out of it.
I don’t really care,” Jericho said. “If I had an angle with MJF or if I was involved in the contracts I’d be much more interested in it, but I stay out of it, it has nothing to do with me. “Only thing I will say is a contract is a contract.
If every athlete in every sport wanted to be paid more now, then what’s the point of having a contract, you know what I mean?” Jericho is furious at the MJF. “MJF is . He has a lot to learn,” Jericho said.
“He’s not as good as he thinks he is and like I said, it really is nothing to do with me but I’m sure he’ll be back. 18 months is a long time to stay at home and that’s Tony Khan’s prerogative.
You’re under contract, you want to stay at home? You can stay at home and not get paid and that’s what happens. “We see it happen in other companies and that’s just how it goes. If you didn’t expect that, then why did you sign your contract in the first place?”
