• Chris Jericho’s Promo On This Week’s AEW Dynamite Was 30 Years In The Making

On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho made his Inner Circle member Jake Hager (fka Jack Swagger in WWE) say ‘sorry’ during his promo multiple times, whenever he had to use that word.

You can watch it below:

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, this promo from Jericho was 30 years in the making:

“Chris Jericho grew up and he was a giant fan of Fonzie and Happy Days and there was an episode of Happy Days where I guess Fonzie was supposed to apologize for something. Basically, what you saw with Jericho last night is what Fonzie did.

So, Jericho has been waiting since he watched the episode of Happy Days to do this promo.

So I don’t know how many years this has been, but probably 30 or more years.”
