Jake Hager Reveals Top AEW Star He Has On His Pro Wrestling Mount Rushmore

Former WWE Star and current AEW Star Jake Hager recently appeared on the Captain's Corner podcast and revealed which top AEW Star is on his Mount Rushmore of pro wrestling list.

Jake Hager said:

“I think Chris Jericho is really [on] the Mount Rushmore of pro wrestling. He really is solidifying his career and being one of the greatest of all time to do it.” “It really just shows he’s one of the greatest because people want to work with him, and that chemistry you see on screen trickles down. It starts with him and the way he treats the people that he works with.”

Jake Hager also talked about how he and Jericho goes back a really long time to their days in the WWE and how Jericho was the person he defeated to become the WWE World Champion for the first time in his career.

Jake Hager said:

“We go back a long time. We’re always kind of like traveling buddies, good people to know and rely on away from work.” “I won the first World Title from him; I remember he poked me as hard as I’ve ever been poked in my chest right in front of certain people, and he said, ‘Don’t f*ck this up,’ hopefully, I didn’t.”

Jake Hager then spoke about how he really likes working with the Jericho Appreciation Society and how Anarchy In The Arena will always go down as one of his favorite matches.

Jake Hager said:

“I really like those guys. I vibe with them, I like working with them, and I think that always shows on screen when you have chemistry like that.” “Anarchy in the Arena will always go down as one of my favorite matches. It was just nonstop, pure pandemonium. Even us in the match didn’t really know what was going on at all times.”
