AEW wrestler and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho has called out TikTok for banning his personal account, taking to Twitter to inform the platform of the issue as well as asking for them to overturn it and get him verified as soon as possible.

While the WWE has been a juggernaut in the world of sports entertainment, with many well-known stars such as John Cena, Dwayne Johnson, and even Dave Bautista all getting their big breakthrough pro wrestling, we’ve seen fierce competition in recent years with the growth of AEW.

As one of the founding figures of this rival brand, Chris Jericho is among the biggest stars going today. However, even with his fame, social media platforms can still be tricky to navigate.

Recently, Jericho has begun dipping his toes into the world of TikTok. Specifically, his presence on the platform has grown considerably, with the entertainer posting videos of wrestling news and comments, music, and other humorous pieces.

But after allegedly trying to get his TikTok account verified, the wrestler took to Twitter to reveal that his account was actually banned instead.
