Chris Jericho Reveals That He Spoke Up In A Production Meeting About AEW Producing Similar Angles
Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Keepin It 100 with Konnan. During the interview Jericho was asking about what he would do to improve things in AEW.
Jericho honestly stated that “everything isn’t always good,” and said that AEW does have some things they need to work on. He then addressed criticism that AEW has faced regarding the opinion that there are a lot of similar angles going on at the same time. Jericho then revealed that this is something that he brought up and called attention to during a production meeting.
“Everything isn’t always good. We have a lot of details that sometimes slip through the cracks. We still have quite a few times when very similar angles will happen one after the other. An example of that was a few weeks ago when the big question was if MJF would join The Inner Circle. I think there was a town hall when Bischoff was asking the questions. As soon as we were done, we went to a package where Taz was asking if Hobbs will join Taz’ team. In the production meeting, I said, ‘guys, how can that even be?’ It’s the exact same thing and they didn’t notice that. I said, ‘maybe we should use that package somewhere else and in the future, let’s not use the word join for Will and Taz.’ Let’s say ‘Are you going to come with us? Are you going to work with us? Are you going to be part of our team?’ Will MJF join The Inner Circle was the tagline for our PPV match, therefore any other joinings should be suspended for this duration. That’s just common sense but sometimes those things fall through the cracks. I would like to see a little more attention to detail.”
