What is being said about Chris Jericho’s professional relationship with AEW President Tony Khan

In regards to where things stand between CM Punk and The Elite, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that there has still not been a resolution to their personal issues. The rumored meeting involving Punk, Chris Jericho, and AEW President Tony Khan has reportedly not taken place yet.

During his audio update on PWTorchVIP.com, Wade Keller commented on FTR potentially being involved in the meeting…

“The idea being FTR [saying] You know, we’re pitching the idea let’s moderate, we’re a neutral party, and we can help let Jericho and Punk work things out…Jericho is the closest confidant of Tony Khan right now, when it comes to things that include him, but go beyond him…I don’t know how often [but] there’s times where it’s like, ‘where’s Tony?’ ‘Oh, he’s in Chris’ hotel room, or he’s off in this restaurant booth talking to Chris’ or wherever they talk. And it’s not just about Chris Jericho stuff, like Jericho is a sounding board. There are people in that company who tell Tony, ‘listen to Chris, listen to Chris, he’s been around.’ You can’t trust anybody 100% but Chris isn’t like some secret agent who’s sabotaging AEW. I think he’s loyal to AEW, that’s what people say at this point. And so I think FTR and Punk are aware of that.”

“Among the people I’ve talked to, there’s not a high level of confidence that the meeting is going to go well that it could make things worse, but maybe not. Maybe things will work out. But people who have been around Punk, know Punk, know people who have known Punk for a very long time, are not optimistic that FTR mediating a meeting between Jericho and Punk is going to lead to progress. The other thing is, is it just sounds by every indication [that] The Bucks, The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson’s heels are dug in. And I think the Brandon Cutler comment adds to it. I just don’t see those parties reconciling.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
