• “Shame On You, WWE” – Chris Jericho On A Recent WWE Release

While speaking on his Saturday Night Special on Facebook, AEW wrestler Chris Jericho, discussed Mike Chioda’s release from WWE and his debut in AEW last week.

Le Champion revealed that Chioda hasn’t signed with AEW yet and also expressed disappointment about the fact that WWE released him after he served the company for over 30 years.

Below are the highlights:

On Chioda’s AEW debut:

“Cody and I had talked about having Mikey come in… We were thinking, like, maybe we should try to bring him in. I mean, we asked Tony Khan [and he said], ‘But it’s the middle of a pandemic, and bringing in a new referee when we’ve got referees. But I always said that when the time is right, let’s bring him in for a big match.

And Cody is very smart, he brought him in and it made that TNT title match special. And then he asked me if I wanted to use him. I go, ‘Well, we can really use him in this match and make a story around it’. You know, ‘If you want a job, you better do the right thing’. Then, of course when the time comes, he turns his back, he takes it away.

He’s not signed with us but hopefully we can have him come back with us more.”

On Chioda’s WWE release:

“I mean, come on, seriously? 35 years the dude has been at your company and you’re going to fire him? Besides the fact that the dude is a great guy and such a talented performer, and can run the whole backstage, but after 35 years, what’s he supposed to do? Go get a job at freaking 7 Eleven? Like, shame on you, WWE. They did it to Mark Eaton, a famous ringside guy that they still haven’t been able to replace him yet. When I was looking for time cues, Mark was always the guy.”
