Chris Jericho Thinks AEW Is 'Absolutely' Better Now Than It Was A Month Ago
Chris Jericho feels AEW is better now than a month ago
What a difference a month makes. Since mid-August All Elite Wrestling have run two pay-per-view events (including one at Wembley Stadium) and have seen more backstage turmoil, this time leading to the firing of CM Punk.
However, Chris Jericho says the promotion is better now than it was in August, saying the following on Busted Open Radio whilst skirting around the Punk/Jack Perry incident at All In:
“We know the issues. The issues have been rectified. But the point is, it's like - there’s so much positive things going on. And those things are always kind of a little bit downplayed. But it’s the negative that gets focused on. I know what’s going on in the locker room, and we know what areas we need to work on. I mean, negative press is negative press.
“Once again, you still got, out of those 81,000 people [at Wembley Stadium], how many people know what even happened or even really care? You know what I mean, the hardcore, and the journalists, and the guys who do this care. And we should. But there’s also fans - not just 81,000, how about being number one on cable once again four weeks in a row? Number one - the number one show out of all shows [on Wednesday], is AEW.
“So to me, that’s a huge positive that also gets kind of lost in the shuffle because somebody’s in a bad mood one day, or whatever it might be. It happens, it’s wrestling. We’re all gypsies, tramps, and thieves, and there’s gonna be issues from time to time,” said Jericho.
When asked by Bully Ray if the atmosphere is better now Jericho was succinct; “Yes. Yes, absolutely.”
