Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend Chris Jericho was recently accused of burying other wrestlers in AEW.

During an interview with Sporf, Y2J fired back at those accusations and stated that actually the exact opposite was the case.

Here’s what Jericho had to say:

“That’s why I worked with Max for a year and why I’ve had Sammy with me pretty much since he came into the company, with the exception of a few months.

Those guys were always earmarked to be stars. And Darby and Jungle Boy too, I worked with them the first few months of AEW’s existence and realized they were both amazing.

It’s funny when I get buried online for ‘burying’ the young guys, it’s like you really don’t understand what I’m doing and don’t even really watch the show because it’s been the exact opposite of that.

And I think we’ve done a great job in building these guys. To have four of them in the main event and to see how they’ve all flourished as talkers, because they can always wrestle but character and talking is the most important thing.

So I really enjoy that side of it, to see those guys in that spot.

My goal and mission when I came to AEW was to build as many stars as we could, quickly, because you only have a short window of time that people are interested in this new promotion.

Chris Jericho may have got them to the show but it can’t all be about me. Yeah I’m proud of them. And they’ve earned it. No one deserves it.

‘You deserve it’ is my least favourite chant. It should be ‘You earned it’, because they’ve earned that chance and that spot and they’ve done a great job with it.”

Jericho is with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling right from the very beginning of the promotion in 2019 and became the first ever AEW World Champion on August 31st 2019.
