Is Chris Jericho shot?

Maybe itís his age, or maybe itís the mass that heís recently added but he just looks like heís in slow motion out there and has a hard time getting into and out of any sort of exchange. Kaz could barely put the walls of Jericho on him on the most recent dynamite, I dunno. What say you?

I do believe Jericho treats vodka like it’s water, which is admirable in my books.

The guy is just fat. He needs to lose weight. Someone on here said he gained weight on purpose because he wanted to look like some old school Japan heavyweight. It was a bad choice for sure. Jericho looked blown up last night after that match. But to be fair, Kazarian looked like shit.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed most of the segments that Jericho is in, and didn’t mind his in ring work early on in AEW, but he’s just looking laboured out there now. I feel like he’s blown up after 7 minutes.

That being said, again, his promos/skits are generally entertaining as hell.

I agree, itís doing him no favours, and itís not like heís suddenly working a power/strong style either. He should definitely work more like a brawler/savvy veteran and probably avoid hitting the ropes or leaving his feet as much as he possibly can.

Yes, he’s a later-life crisis having alcoholic. I’ll always be grateful for what he did for Tazz Dan, but he’s producing bullshit content that goes against his own professional philosophy now.

It doesnt matter if Chris Jericho is shot or not.
Chris Jericho could come down to the ring, lay down farting and talk about his favorite drinks while counting a jar of peanuts and would still be more entertaining than 80% of wrestlers out there.

His physical condition fluctuates weekly. You can tell when he's been drinking a lot vs when he cares and actually trains. This week he looked really bad. I think it's likely he's been appearing on Dynamite intoxicated at least a few times as well. Or he has a reoccurring case of pink eye(s). He is definitely at the end of his road IMO.

As a former fat person, I can tell you trying to get up from being flat on your back is one helluva task.

Jericho just looks really fucking bloated. He looked best in the early 2000s. Looked a lot smaller when he started making his regular returns in WWE. And now he just looks fucking fat. Wish he'd drop like 20 lbs. Think it would make his matches better.

What do you expect?! Chris Jericho is 50 years old. You pretty much answered your own question. On the plus side however, you increased your overall post count and so there's that I guess.

Dustin Rhodes is 51 and he's still putting on good matches and moving well despite debuting over 30 years ago. The difference here is that Dustin has obviously put a focus on taking care of himself and staying fit and Jericho doesn't.

You do make a good point about Dustin Rhodes. Al Snow and Billy Gunn are going pretty strong as well apparently.

I understand why Jericho originally wanted to go for the barrel gut look for his return to Japan. But it's one thing to do it when you show up for a couple matches a year, it's another when you're on TV every week.

Once AEW got their TV deal, he should've at least gotten back into the shape he was in for his 2016/17 WWE run. AEW should've told him to do it, but even without that it's a mark against him that he doesn't have the motivation.

There are shoot interviews with him online from 2018-2019 and he looks half the age he does now. He is bloated in the face and just looks so unhealthy.

He is such a smart mind for the business. You would think he would have the sense to see that of new fans turn over and see Jericho in that state, they will immediately think he is past it. He wouldn’t be allowed on WWE TV looking like that. Presentation makes such a big difference.

Let's all be honest and clear. Jericho nor anyone would ever actually want to look the way he did when he went to Japan. He obviously looked in the mirror at his fat body and said "I can make this work". There is no way he decided to get fat to evolve his character.

I haven't watched wrestling of any kind for almost five years so I have no evolution to gauge but when I saw him on Dark Side of the Ring it was pretty jarring.

I just hope Jericho’s story doesn’t end up in tragedy at this point. We all laugh at the decline, but the dude has had a life and a career. People suck up to him as he clearly gets too drunk and runs his mouth on Twitter. Functional addicts have this way of making themselves appear to be in control when they’re really not. Finding a job where he can do whatever he wants probably enables that.

If he got back into better shape, I think he can finish strong.

Of course, age limitations will prevent him from performing like he did in his prime. But he can do the wildman brawling pretty good--just needs to be in better shape.

A lot of this makes sense, and paints a more clear picture about where he seems to be in his career. I hope he gets his demons under control if all what you say is true.

Has anybody heard about what AEW'sc drug testing policy is like? Reason I ask is, being middle aged, Jericho can prob get some medically administered testosterone to help him get back in good to great shape.

What makes it worse is that everyone could basically watch this happen in real time, chronicled week on week, since the dawn of AEW he has gotten fatter and slower and sloppier in the ring. Made more poignant by the fact that, in both gimmick in WWE and for-real interview, said he doesn't want to be someone who's past his prime and hangs on just too long and starts tarnishing himself.

He is actually living the lyrics to Judas.

Jericho's fall is either tragically sad to watch or the makings of the greatest long con ever for the king of re-invention. Pretty sure he's not doing this on purpose, and he's just stopped giving a fuck and is content so skate by on what's left of his name and Fozzy money.

However, let's say the Inner Circle breaks up, then Chris "takes a break" and then comes back in a few months in shape and with better cardio for his "Steamboat run" and career swan song, I think that would be a very interesting development. We shall see.

Side note on Inner Circle... something deep down tells me this was something sniped from Shawn Spears after that inital sit-down where Tully appeared. He mentioned the whole "five people" thing, and then, suddenly Jericho gets a five man stable. I have no facts to back me up, but I always got the feeling Inner Circle was supposed to be his group, but he was replaced by Chris for "name value" and/or "veteran status".
