Chris Jericho Talks AEW’s Ratings Success In TNT & More

AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was recently a guest on the KTLA 5 Morning News Show in Los Angeles where he talked about a number of topics including last Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite premiere.

Jericho first talked about AEW being a completely different pro wrestling company than the WWE. Jericho also mentioned that last Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite premiere was the highest-debuted show in 5 years for TNT as well as people being excited that for the first time in 20 years there finally is an alternative to the WWE.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“Well, completely different.” “It’s a brand new company, backed by the owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and we just debuted on Wednesday, last Wednesday, on the TNT Network, to what was the highest-debuted show in 5 years for the network. A huge hit. It’s something different. People are excited because for the first time in 20 years there’s an alternative to the WWE, and it’s new, and it’s exciting, and it’s fresh, it’s fun.

Jericho then talked about his importance and his role in AEW as well as now being a really cool time in the wrestling business.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“Well, for me, I’m kind of the bridge that brings people from, maybe they don’t know what AEW is, but they know Chris Jericho. ‘We like this guy, we enjoy his legacy.’ So, when they come and watch me on the show, then they see all these other great performers that they’ve never watched. So, for me it’s a chance to do something, build something up from scratch, which has never happened in our lifetime for the wrestling business. It’s a really cool time for the business. We have created a whole buzz for wrestling now, to where it’s becoming cool again, and more specifically, AEW is cool.”
