The way things are now and the way he reinvented himself the last few years, I would say that he will make the most money he ever has in a year in 2020. This is the perfect time for a fairly well known wrestler's contract to end.It’s possible, but I would imagine that when he came to the WWF in his first go round that he made a good deal of money as a tag champ with Jacques Rougeau.  But with that said, he got in after all of the “Hogan money” was gone...so maybe he didn’t make much at all.  He also did an almost two year run in WCW when Bischoff was paying people to not work for the WWF, he then returned to the WWF in the late ‘90s after the “Stone Cold” money started to flow freely.  So even though now he’s in his 50s, you may be right about a big money run - and I think it could be in AEW.  They don’t mind pushing older talent, and it would give Jericho a fresh feud.  And Jericho would probably care about it too.
