AEW has locked Jake Hager on a new contract.
While speaking with Inside the Ropes for a new interview, Chris Jericho was asked about Angelo Parker and Matt Menard signing extensions with the promotion last month. He revealed that Hager also signed a contract extension with AEW.
“Jake Hager too. They all got contract extensions,” Jericho said. “I’ve told the story of how the Jericho Appreciation Society was formed many times. It was never planned. It was just something that happened based on the circumstances we were facing. I think when the five of us got together, it was a different Inner Circle vibe, but I knew these guys were really good.”
“I’m proud that they got contract extensions, raises, everything else,” Jericho continued. “They deserved it. They earned it by showing what they can do.”
