Many of the All Elite Wrestling stars were in New York City for the television upfronts to be apart of the big reveal that AEW will be headed to Turner Broadcasting once again for weekly prime time wrestling, but one star that wasn’t was Chris Jericho. “The Painmaker” sent out a video from a “Tampa dungeon” gym to send his congratulations on the big news, but to also send a reminder to the “suck-ups” that he’s busy training for his match against Kenny Omega. Jericho’s full statement is below:

Congrats to @allelitewrestling for signing a HUGE television contract w @tntdrama & @warnermediagroup! But don’t forget why this monumental TV deal was signed @tonyrkhan, @kennyomegamanx & @americannightmarecody…. and you all can thank me for it at #DoubleOrNothing. #YoureWelcome #TNTIsJericho
