Chris Jericho spent lot of time with Randy Orton in WWE, and watched him grow from his early stages of his career. Chris and Eddie Kingston are now working together in AEW. So Chris Jericho knows lot about this two wrestlers.
Chris Jericho was recently in AEW Unrestricted podcast where he talked about how Eddie is reminding him of Randy Orton.
Eddie Kingston reminds me of Randy Orton and I’ll tell you the reason why. Polar opposites in image and gimmicks but neither one of them quite realize just how good they are. They kind of think it’s funny to kind of downplay themselves but they’re both so good and Eddie doesn’t quite get it yet and when he does, he’s gonna be a world champion. Not that he doesn’t now, but he still has an inner demon. I think those are going away because he realizes just how good he is. But I saw it from the start. So yeah, I’m a big fan of Eddie Kingston.
