Chris Jericho talks about the possibility he works another non-WWE event in the United States:

There is a whole market now for hardcore wrestling fans, maybe they’re not even hardcore anymore. There’s a whole strain of, of fans of wrestling that are excited about all these other options. I didn’t think there was any sense of me doing All In, but at this point in time, sure there’s a chance. If there’s a match that’s presented to me that’s interesting and I’m free, like why not? Like I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency and realizing why do I have to just keep it in Japan?

What if I do want to do more stuff in the [United] States and, you know, not really worry about what anybody thinks at this point in time? I think for the first time in my career in 28 years—October 2nd will be 20 years—I’m kind of completely in control and it’s fun.

Jericho continued, saying he would be open to working another event if the terms were right:

Nobody’s called me either way to work there or not working there. We’re on tour with Fozzy until mid-December and that’s the end of the Judas Rising tour. And then we go back to songwriting and go back to recording. And in that timeframe is usually when I go back into the WWE. But this time maybe there’s other places I’ll go back to other than WWE, it just depends on what kind of is the best idea and the best creative thoughts, and I guess the best offer.
