AEW’s Chris Jericho wants a match against Samoa Joe plus NXT, AEW, IMPACT news

CHRIS Jericho has revealed he wants to see Samoa Joe join the AEW roster.

In an interview with the New York Post, Jericho said out of all the recently-released WWE stars he would most like to see Joe join him in the rival promotion.

“That’s another dream match if you want to go there,” Jericho said.

Joe was among eleven superstars who were dropped from WWE on April 15 due to “budget cuts”.

Elsewhere, Eva Marie is heading back to WWE, a move teased on Monday Night RAW.

During the show, the company released a promotional video featuring Marie wearing a black leather dress and pink hair on top of a car.

Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan was moved to the Alumni section on WWE’s official website after losing a dramatic showdown with Roman Reigns on Friday night, which resulted in a ban from SmackDown.

Following April’s Wrestlemania, WWE moved NXT from Wednesday night to Tuesday night so that it was no longer competing with AEW Dynamite.

NXT airs on USA Network and is also available on the WWE network.
All Elite Wrestling will continue on Wednesdays showcasing their talented roster on TNT. 

Newcomer AEW offers a mix of indie darlings, such as Thunder Rosa, wrestling legends, such as “Demo God” Chris Jericho and Jim “JR” Ross, and up-and-coming stars, such as Tay ContiJade Cargill, and Britt Baker. 

Fans of Impact! Wrestling can now watch their favorite stars, including current Impact KNOCKOUTS champion Deonna Purrazzo, on Thursday night on Twitch, and on AXSTV.
