Chris Hero currently works his wrestling behind-the-scenes at AEW, mostly on AEW Collision, but he hasn’t completely ruled out a future in-ring appearance.  In fact, he just made his return to the ring after a 3 year hiatus, and explains how and why it happened.  Chris also chronicles his AEW journey and the role that longtime friend, Sonjay Dutt, played in it.  He talks about his long in-ring history with Claudio Castagnoli, working again with Jimmy Jacobs, his coaching philosophy, and the most important lessons he tries to impart to his students.


Chris Hero on wrestling for AEW:
“If I end up doing something in the ring with AEW, I want it to be as special as possible, and not something that’s done just for the spontaneous moment of it, and then it’s over and it’s done.”

Chris Hero on working with Jimmy Jacobs at AEW:
“I sit in the office with him, and he’s somebody that I met when he was 15 years old.  He was Jumpin’ Jimmy Jacobs and he came to the ring on a pogo stick.”
