Chris Jericho will go down as one of the greatest wrestlers to have ever graced the ring whenever he decides to call it a day on his wrestling career, but the six-time world champion has shown in the past year that he still has a lot of wrestling left in him.
It was only this past January which Jericho had a five-star match with Kenny Omega at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12, and many wrestling fans have high hopes for his match against Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship at Dominion 6.9 in Osaka-jo Hall on June 9.
Many fans will be hoping The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla will have a few more epic feuds with the WWE before he decides to retire from wrestling for good. The man himself has named four superstars he would like to feud with in the WWE.
Speaking recently to The Mirror to promote his "Words of Jericho" one-man shows in Glasgow, Manchester, and London next week, Jericho stated that he's willing to work with anyone so long as the story is right.
Jericho said: "It's all about the story. If it's a good story I will work with anybody. I enjoy wrestling still but I enjoy the storyline behind it. I liked the idea of a surprise attack on Naito, I like all these type of things that you don't really expect to see. That's why I still enjoy wrestling.
As for if there was anyone specifically in the WWE he would like to work with, Jericho named four superstars in particular.
"Yeah sure, working with [Braun] Strowman would be great, working with Daniel Bryan would be great, working with any of those guys would be great, I love Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins and all of those dudes. But what's the story behind it? If we can come up with a good story, then I'm all in. If not, then I will just continue doing what I'm doing right now and having a lot of fun doing it."
A feud of Jericho vs Braun Strowman would be an amazing sight to see, and it's interesting that Strowman was the first superstar Y2J mentioned. It goes to show how highly some of the legends of the wrestling business think of The Monster Among Men as a future star.
As for the rest of the superstars Jericho mentioned, feuds against Bryan, Reigns, and Rollins are always going to be good so long as they have the right storyline for them. Hopefully The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla can have feuds against all four superstars before his retirement.
