• Chris Jericho Says WWE Officials Are Angry After AEW Double Or Nothing
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Old School WWF Legend & AEW Superstar Chris Jericho talked about WWE officials being angry after AEW Double Or Nothing PPV.
Below is what Jericho said:
“They know exactly what is going on, they have the daily social media reports, the analytics, the demographics. I know we had 200,000 Google searches – that’s up there with NFL numbers.
I’m sure they are watching, and they are not very happy with what happened. You can’t tell me a show that had Chris Jericho, Dustin Rhodes, Jim Ross, Bret Hart, Dean Malenko calling the matches backstage, didn’t make WWE angry.
Now, WWE is a juggernaut. They are not going anywhere, they have money to last decades, and decades, and decades. They have a huge talent roster, but this is a scene change. This puts WWE on watch.”
