Backstage news regarding recent AEW street fight Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/15/2020 at 05:35 PM
In an interview with BarstoolSports.com, Chris Jericho commented on the street fight that featured himself and Sammy Guevara against Kenny Omega and Matt Hardy from the May 6th edition of AEW Dynamite:
“We did a street fight where we fought throughout the whole concourse. Why? Because it was there. I got asked, ‘How long did it take you to plan it?’ Two hours. We got to the building, walked around, ‘Oh, there’s an ice machine. Matt, can you fit in this?’ There were golf carts, a scissors lift, we’re just finding this stuff to use. This is the only time where we’re going to be able to have this type of match. You take advantage of what’s there and use it to the best of your ability.
I had a blast putting it together and blast doing it. Little details, Matt his me with a bag of ice. We cut the bag of ice so it would explode. Money in the ATM so when Sammy threw Kenny into the ATM, we could find the money. Even the stupid witches hat, with the traffic cone, it wasn’t planned.”
