Per, new member of the AEW roster Chris Jericho is going to host a meet-and-greet with fans and record an episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast with WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk Jr. in Ocala, Florida this Saturday. Jericho will also be visiting Funk’s school for a charity event. Tickets for the event will be $45.

Speaking on the event, Jericho stated: “I have a little bit of a wish list of the people I wanted to have on the show for a long time, and Dory Funk Jr. is near the top of the list because not only is he one of the greatest champions of all time, he also has such a great memory for the stories about starting out in the ’60s and ’70s. He is definitely one of the pioneers of wrestling.”

Funk also praised Jericho ahead of the event, stating, “Chris Jericho has done a phenomenal job becoming a box office attraction here in the United States and in Japan — one of the most challenging places to work in the world.”
