Chris Jericho Believes AEW Won’t Miss A Beat Following Backstage Turmoil

Things happen, people move on.

AEW has constantly been in the news following AEW All Out’s post-show scrum and brawl. But, the new ROH World Champion, Chris Jericho, believes they’ll turn this negative into a positive. He recently sat down with GQ to discuss a wide variety of topics including the backstage brawl. This is what he had to say.

Without getting into specifics, it happens all the time. hat’s one of the things about being around as long as I have: You just recalibrate and you focus on the positives and realize we got a great locker room, a great group of guys and girls. I think we re-established that [on TV the last few weeks]. We know that this is a pretty special place, and we’re gonna go out there and we’re gonna kill it. That’s what we did. It’s a reset and that’s exciting for everybody involved, including me. We’re just gonna keep building upon it. That’s what you do. That’s how you have longevity. I bet you the Edmonton Oilers were terrified when Wayne Gretzky left, and they won a Stanley Cup that year. That’s just how it goes when somebody leaves—somebody else steps up. That’s the best thing about wrestling, or pro sports, or even SNL. Adam Sandler leaves and suddenly Jason Sudeikis is the big name or whatever. So absolutely we’re not gonna miss a beat. We’re gonna go on and become bigger and better and stronger than ever.
