Chris Jericho Talks Taking Career Risk, WWE Not Being Happy With AEW & More

Chris Jericho Talks Taking Career Risk, WWE Not Being Happy With AEW & More

AEW star Chris Jericho was recently interviewed on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio in which he talked about WWE being very unhappy with what happened during Double or Nothing. Below are the highlights:

On the risks he’s taken with his career paying off: 

“A lot of it is instinct. Knowing it was time to step back from WWE. Granted there was a lot going on with Fozzy, but it gave me a chance to step back. The I had the match with Kenny and had so much fun with it, that led to more matches in Japan. With that, I was able to spend more time with the Bucks, Cody and Kenny, get the creative juices flowing, then AEW started happening. It was a lot of things happening. I have been fortunate to evolve and be as groundbreaking as I ever have been at the age of 48. I’m also fortunate to have the backing of guys that feel the same way I do creatively, and the financial backing of a family that feels the same way and a television network that feels the same way. Quite frankly, the entire wrestling community is on the same page.”

On being at the forefront with AEW and how Double or Nothing went: 

“Here I’m at the forefront of it. No one expected Cody and Dustin to have this show-stealing match on a show with Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Lucha Bros, Chris Jericho. You have the Bucks and Lucha Bros having this amazing match, then you have Kenny Omega and Chris Jerichokicking the crap out of each other. You had all of these great moments, it was like a wrestling buffet. Every match was different. I had people text me that it was the best show they have been to. And, it was because every match was different.”

On WWE not being happy with what happened at Double or Nothing:

 “They know exactly what is going on, they have the daily social media reports, the analytics, the demographics, I know we had 200 thousand Google searches, that’s up there with NFL numbers. I’m sure they are watching, and they are not very happy with what happened. You can’t tell me a show that had Chris Jericho, Dustin Rhodes, Jim Ross, Bret Hart, Dean Malenko calling the matches backstage, didn’t make WWE angry. Now, WWE is a juggernaut. They are not going anywhere, they have money to last decades, and decades, and decades. They have a huge talent roster, but this is a scene change. This puts WWE on watch.”

On building buzz for AEW: 

“We don’t have another show until June. We have one show a month to continue this buzz. The best way to do this is to use the power of social media, which we do better than anybody. Use Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. We just have to be smart about what we do to keep the buzz rolling. We have the cool factor, we have all the momentum and it’s up to us what we do with that.”
