Top WWE Superstar sends message to Chris Jericho following contract extension

A top WWE Superstar congratulated the former 9-time Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho following his recent contract extension with AEW.

Ronda Rousey climbed back to the top of the mountain after making her long-awaited return at the beginning of the year. After failing to defeat Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38, the two went head-to-head in an “I Quit” match where Rousey became the SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Last week, she defeated Liv Morgan to win her second SmackDown Women’s Championship. AEW star Chris Jericho recently signed a multi-year extension with the company with additional duties and responsibilities. On her live stream, Rousey congratulated The Ocho. Here’s what she told the 8-time World Champion:

“Also, congrats Jericho. Congrats on your [AEW contract] extension. It’s great.” (From 2:29 to 2:40)

It’s now official that Jericho will be All Elite until the end of 2025. However, fans have enjoyed his work with the rising promotion as the old regime in WWE didn’t utilize him to the fullest.
