Jay Lethal Wants To Face ‘Dream Opponent’ Chris Jericho



During a recent Highspots virtual signing, AEW star Jay Lethal named his favorite wrestling legends excluding WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

Lethal said, “It’d be a tie between Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, because I was just in his last match, and Tatanka. At [TNA] Wrestling, when I started the Machismo character, they had me fight some of the older legends. I fought Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart. When I wrestled Tatanka, true story, I wrestled Tatanka, and he, on television, beat my ass. I had not been hit, forearmed, punched, chopped as hard, even almost to this day, as hard as anybody has ever hit me than Tatanka did back then. I know it was just a short match, but Tatanka, he was like, ‘Maybe if we do this well, we can get a program out of it, a good run.’ In my head, I’m thinking, ‘This is just a one-time deal, buddy.’ He beat the crap out of me.”

Lethal also expressed his desire to face his dream opponent Chris Jericho before the latter hangs up his boots.

Lethal said, “Dream opponents? I would love to step into the ring with Chris Jericho at some point before he retires. I don’t know how much longer Jericho is going to keep going, but I’d like to step into the ring with him before it’s over.”
