Chris Jericho’s message to WWE in regards to NXT victory over AEW: “Don’t get too far up your own ass”

During an interview with, AEW’s Chris Jericho commented on WWE NXT beating AEW Dynamite in television viewership on October 10th 2023…

“You know, you can only bring in [John] Cena and Undertaker and Cody [Rhodes] and everybody else so much because nobody wants to work on their secondary show all the time. And it was a fun little, ‘Hey, F-you AEW.’ I didn’t even really worry about it. I told Tony [Khan], ‘Well, if you want to fire back, bring in Shaq and Snoop Dogg and those types of guys, Mike Tyson. But Tony didn’t do that. We relied on our show and our guys and our girls, and that’s the way it’s always been for us. This would be like a football game where you bring in all of your top stars from years prior and beat the other team 30-26. It’s like a video game. Let’s bring in Tom Brady from five years ago and then play him for one game against Chris Jericho. OK, you guys won, but you only won 30-26.”

“So, don’t get too far up your own ass because you didn’t do that good of a job as far as crushing us. And our show was better than theirs, quite frankly. So, it doesn’t bother me. It’s competition, man. It’s good for the fans, it’s good for the companies.”
