Backstage Details On AEW's Le Dinner Debonair
The segment has divided opinion...
The storyline between MJF and Chris Jericho continued last night as both men went out for a steak dinner. The evening didn't get off to the best of starts as they tried to one-up each other by ordering the rarest steaks from Thelma/Velma. They both eventually found common ground, however, after they agreed Orange Cassidy couldn't get over.
Le Dinner Debonair then changed dramatically as Le Champion and The Ratings Ruler suddenly broke into song and covered a modified version of "Me And My Shadow," complete with back-up dancers and other tropes associated with a Broadway musical. The song was most famously sung by The Rat Pack in the 1960s.
Jericho revealed some details about how Le Dinner Debonair came together after Dynamite went off the air. The Demo God told fans at Daily's Place that he and MJF finished filming the segment at 2 am Wednesday morning and that it was only finished 22 minutes before it aired.
The musical number has certainly divided opinion within the wrestling world. The likes of former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas claimed the segment would be criticised if it was on any other show, while others praised it for being bold and unique.
