During an appearance on Konnan's podcast, Chris Jericho commented on his recent AEW storylines and what he is trying to accomplish:

ďMy feuds always have heat. They always have a beginning, a middle, and an end and itís always planned out accordingly. Sometimes you might have to wait, but isnít that what great storytelling is? Iím not the booker for anybody. Iím the booker for myself. I donít have creative control. I did it with the whole Moxley story. I did it with the whole Cody story. I did it with the whole Orange Cassidy and now with the whole MJF. I think Moxley was 12 weeks and Cody was 10 or 12 weeks and we could have probably gone longer with that one. In order to have a story, there has to be ups and downs. The original idea and the original connection between MJF and I is the comedic element because they are very similar characters. There is a lot more to this and the idea is to make everybody a much bigger star coming out of it than they did going in. At this point in my career, all Iím about is entertaining and being creatively stimulated and not doing the same old same old. I also came up in wrestling with Ď80s WWF. Yes, we loved Andre and Hogan. Yes, we loved Steamboat and Savage. Donít forget that Steamboat and Savage was based all around George ďThe AnimalĒ Steele, the most ridiculous character of all time. There was Vince McMahon singing Stand Back with Hulk Hogan playing bass in the background. I love that stuff. I always did and Vince loves the stuff. So, Iím like, let me try some stuff. The song and dance routine, I wouldnít do that with anybody, that was MJFís idea by the way. The guy was a childhood prodigy. Heís been singing and dancing since he was five years old. If there was ever a time to try it, letís do it. Are we going to do it every week? No. Is it something people will always remember? Yes.Ē (quote courtesy of
