Chris Jericho Reveals His Initial Reaction To Eddie Kingston, More



AEW wrestler Chris Jericho recently took to his podcast, “Talk Is Jericho,” to discuss several professional wrestling topics, including his initial thoughts on Eddie Kingston when he first joined All Elite Wrestling.

Why do I not know this guy?'”
