Chris Jericho is a veteran in the pro wrestling business. Jericho has competed in numerous companies all over the world in his career, which has spanned more than 30 years.
Jericho has been one of the mainstays of AEW television since he debuted back in 2019. Many fans agree that AEW would not have survived had Le Champion not carried the company on his back for the first few months.
The Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla has also been featured in shows in the past, even if they were simply references. As such, he has even appeared in a new film that will release soon.
While speaking with Tyler Treese of ComingSoon.net to discuss a wide variety of subjects, Chris Jericho was asked about his recent role in the horror movie Terrifier 2 and filming a scene inside a mental institution.
“Well, it was weird too because it was October, and it was about three in the morning, so it was cold. The institution was, just like you said, it was creepy. It wasn’t like filthy, but it wasn’t like the cleanest of places. It just really fit the vibe of Terrifier,” Chris Jericho said. “Like I said, it just was a gritty location, and that scene was actually a lot longer, which led to the actual ending of movie. Another horror movie came out in the same timeframe, over the last year, that had the same ending, so we had to recut it, and re-shoot it. So, it was actually a longer scene than that. But either way, it was really cool to be involved and just see all the passion of the people behind this project and it leaves the door wide open for Terrifier 3 for me.”
We will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for Chris Jericho in the future, as he is still the ROH World Champion. If anything, he always has a nice film resume to revisit.
