• Backstage Reaction To Chris Jericho Taking A Shot At Brock Lesnar Winning Money In The Bank 2019
As we noted this past Sunday night after Money In The Bank 2019, Old School WWF Legend and All Elite Wrestling Superstar Chris Jericho trolled WWE for booking Brock Lesnar as the winner of the Men’s Money In The Bank 2019 ladder match.
Below is what Y2J tweeted:
Awesome to see @BrockLesnar win the #MoneyInTheBank match…even though he wasn’t officially entered! Brock is the future of the biz and this perfect example of genius booking shows why @WWE will remain on top FOREVER! #GoBrockGo

According to Brad Shepard, below is what a source in WWE said regarding this situation:
“I talked to a high-level source in WWE about AEW. In particular about the price to watch Double Or Nothing on PPV for fans stateside and about Chris Jericho taking shots at WWE.
The source said the price to watch Double Or Nothing was high especially with the WWE Network being so cheap. They thought AEW would go with a more affordable option to get eyeballs on their big shows even if it meant taking a hit on the margin per buy.
The source also took a shot at AEW over Jericho’s remarks about Brock Lesnar saying, wasn’t AEW supposed to be an alternative to WWE and not direct competition? And quote: ‘The more they take shots at us and bring in ex-WWE guys the more it reminds me of TNA many, many years back which I didn’t think was their plan’.”
