• WWE Wanted To Crush AEW, But Got Their A$$ Kicked Instead, Says AEW World Champion Chris Jericho

During a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho talked about how WWE wanted to crush AEW, but got their a$$ kicked instead.

Below is what Jericho said:

“We’re not the alternative, we’re an option. If you don’t like what you’re seeing on one side of the street, now, for the first time in 20 years, there is something happening on the other side of the street. You can make a choice.

We didn’t come into this with the mentality of, ‘We’re gonna crush ‘em!’ They did, and they’re getting their a$$es kicked every week. It’s probably embarrassing for them.

Vince, Hunter. That’s why they specifically put their show up against ours. That’s fine. And I’ve heard they watch our show in tandem while they’re doing their thing.

We don’t care. We focus on our show, our product, and making sure our fans are happy and growing our fan base.

Whatever anybody else is doing is really none of our business.”
