• “Everything isn’t always good. We have a lot of details slip through the cracks” – Chris Jericho Criticizes AEW Segment
AEW’s Chris Jericho appeared on a recent edition of Keeping it 100 with Konnan, where he discussed AEW’s segments and admitted that not everything they produce is good.
He was critical of the company producing similar segments for him & MJF and Taz & Will Hobbs.
Here’s what Jericho said:
“Everything isn’t always good. We have a lot of details slip through the cracks. We still have quite a few times when very similar angles happen right after one another.
Example of that was a few weeks ago, when the big question was ‘Will MJF join the Inner Circle?’ We had this big long thing about whether or not MJF was going to join, I think it was a town hall, that’s where Bischoff was there asking questions. And as soon as we were done, we went to like a package, where Taz was asking Will Hobbs if he’s going to join Taz’s team.
And I went to the production team and I was like, ‘Guys, how can that happen? How can that even be?’ Like, it’s the exact same thing, and nobody even noticed that. Maybe we should move that package somewhere else. In the future, let’s not use to word ‘join’ for Will and Taz. Instead, are you going to come with us? Are you going to work with us? Are you going to be a part of our team?
‘Will MJF join the Inner Circle’ was the tagline for our PPV match! Therefore, any other joinings should be suspended for this duration. And that’s just common sense, but sometimes those things just fall through the cracks. I’d like to see a little bit more attention to those kind of details.
A couple weeks ago when I was on commentary, MJF attacked me. We let them know it wasn’t going to be a finger poke of doom. And then when we had the match, it was very serious until the finish, which you kind of have to do, that sort of Eddie Guerrero finish for where we’re going. My feuds always have heat. They always have a beginning, middle, and end, and it’s always planned out accordingly. Sometimes you might just have to wait, but isn’t that what good storytelling is?
In order to encapsulate and have a story, there has to be ups and downs. And the original idea, the original connection with MJF, is the comedic element because we’re very similar characters. But don’t think this is going to be a Doink and Dink finish. There’s a lot more to it behind that.”
