Chris Jericho Responds To Triple H’s Comments About AEW

Chris Jericho responds to Triple H‘s comments about AEW.

On September 2, Triple H sparked some controversy when he said that All Elite Wrestling beat WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, during the Wednesday Night War.

In an interview with Alex McCarthy for Inside The Ropes, Jericho, a former AEW World Champion, responded and stated that Triple H was changing the narrative and history itself because NXT was not treated like the developmental brand at the time.

“Once again it is just changing the narrative and changing the history, which makes me laugh,” Jericho said. “Because when it started, it was not developmental, it was a third brand, it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon, and all the other bullsh*t that they said, so of course we [AEW] beat the developmental or whatever you want to call it, but who gives a sh*t?

“It’s such old news, and the show sucks, NXT sucks, it’s not a good show, and they know it. Whether they were punished or not, they probably were punished. That’s probably why Triple H said those things because he is angry that we beat them, and he is probably angry that we exist. But you know, we don’t care about WWE, we care about our show, we care about putting on the best stories that we can put on, we care about building our fanbase and building our ratings.”

He continued by sharing his belief that AEW’s growth pisses WWE off, but AEW doesn’t care about them.

“We will continue to exist and I will tell you this, my boss has a lot more money than his boss does,” Jericho said. “A lot more. So you want to go to that and, we are not going anywhere, we will continue to grow. That p*sses them off and why wouldn’t it? They had a monopoly for so long and don’t like the fact that we exist and that’s fine. We don’t care that they exist, God bless them. They are running a show in front of 50,000 people, why would he care about us? But you know, he should, and he does, and that’s why he said those things.”
