Action Andretti: I’m Very Grateful Chris Jericho Gave Me A Chance, It Shows How Selfless He Is

Action Andretti is very grateful for what Chris Jericho did for him in his AEW Dynamite debut.

All Elite Wrestling‘s Action Andretti was a recent guest on AEW Unrestricted with Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked for his thoughts on Chris Jericho after he put him over on AEW Dynamite, Andretti said he was very grateful that Jericho saw something in him to give him a chance to be a star.

“For Chris to put me in that situation and just know that he was gonna help make me into a star in a way, he doesn’t have to do that for anybody. He’s Chris Jericho, he definitely has a leadership in AEW to help make new stars, and he has in the past. I’m very grateful that he even saw something in me to even think about giving me that chance. And help make me into a star.

“The fact that he even saw my match with QT [Marhsall] and was just in the back watching because he could be in the back just watching and then keep it pushing because he’s a busy man. He’s got a lot of stuff to do. He doesn’t need to take the time to watch an AEW Dark match backstage. So the fact that he even took time to watch my match and see some potential in me, that was crazy at that. And then the fact that he wants to take me under his wing in a way and had me wrestle him one on one and put me over, and he knew what he was doing in that situation.

“He knew he saw potential in me. He knew that he could get a buzz going for me and make a name for me. So the fact that he did that, it shows how selfless he is. And it shows how good of a guy Chris really is. And that he really cares about what’s best for AEW and wants to help AEW grow and showcase brand-new talent like myself coming in and help put some shine on our names. So I’m very grateful for what Chris has done, and I’m sure he’s going to do more of that in AEW over the years.”
