Former All Elite Wrestling World Champion Chris Jericho spoke with the media ahead of All Out and reflected on his feud with Orange Cassidy. He also shared his thoughts on NXT’s potential move to Tuesday nights.
“They came on Wednesday [on USA Network] just to mess with us. Take your head out of your a– and go make money. Don’t worry about our company. We’re not worried about you. Leave us alone, do your own thing, go to Tuesdays, grab an extra 250,000 viewers, finally get your demo where it needs to be because it’s pretty embarrassing on a Wednesday night up against us. So go, go to Tuesday, go to Sunday, go to any other day you want. But don’t exist just to mess with us because we’re beating you every week. It’s kind of embarrassing for NXT at this point.”
Jericho also spoke about his recent feud with Orange Cassidy, saying wrestling is successful when you can take a long-term story like that and create a bigger star like they just did.
“That’s the real secret of wrestling and the real genius and fun of wrestling is when you can put together a long storyline and bring a guy like him and put him in the spotlight and now he is a legit main event star for AEW.”
