Chris Jericho Denies The AEW Locker Room Was A 'Dumpster Fire' After All Out 2022
Jericho has refuted reports of AEW locker room turmoil following All Out 2022.
Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho believes the company has come through stronger after the events of last year's All Out.
Speaking with The Daily Mail about the aftermath of CM Punk's infamous post-show media scrum and subsequent brawl involving members of The Elite and Ace Steel, The Ocho said:
"We just let people know that everything's gonna be OK. We are a great locker room with great people and a lot of momentum for our company that's still very young and things happen sometimes. There was a lot of uncertainty. We've got a lot of young guys and girls on our roster who have never been through stuff like this before, but it's a part of the business, it happens.
"We were really getting painted with an unfair brush by the media in a lot of ways like 'it's a dumpster fire in the locker room' and that wasn't the case. And I don't want people to believe what they're reading and think that it's real, 'cause it wasn't".
Continuing, the 52-year-old highlighted the efforts of himself, Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley in helping to unify the locker room, saying:
"You've got to continue forward and Mox, Danielson and I just really wanted to grab the horse by the reins before it got out of control and just let people know that if you have concerns let's discuss them, if you have issues let's discuss them but let's get through them together and come through stronger on the back end.
"I think we really came together well which was great for the locker room and for the fans because the fans too want to know that everything is going to continue moving forward.
"And I think we did a really good job of righting the ship and most importantly letting people know that it's going to be OK. It's not the end of the world. These things happen and we deal with them and we become stronger as a result, which we have".
Jericho will square off with Will Ospreay at All In this Sunday. His band Fozzy will perform his Judas entrance theme live.
