One of All Elite Wrestling’s most deranged, unique, and unorthodox star in Luther, who is also “Le Champion” Chris Jericho‘s close friend, recently appeared as a guest on Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast for a special two-part interview to talk about a number of topics, including how he initially thought the offer he received from AEW was a rib and more.
Below are the highlights:
On how he initially thought the offer he received from AEW was a rib:
“I was actually speechless. I remember when they offered me the contract, I thought they were ribbing me. Daniels and Cody took me into a room. I thought I was getting fired. Well the thing is, I thought it was over something else, like I thought I was gonna get let go or whatever. I’ve had that, ‘Hey, can you come and see us’ or whatever. So I go in there, and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, this is not gonna be good,’ and I get a little anxiety once in a while, and then my brain starts going crazy.
And I’m like, ‘Oh, this is not good.’So I go in there, and yeah, they offered me a full contract or whatever. And I was just sort of sitting there, didn’t know what to do or what to say but they were looking at me and kind of smiling so I thought they’re ribbing me. And so I said, straight up , I was like, ‘Are you ribbing me?’
And Cody, that’s why I asked him, like we rib a lot, and so Cody’s like, ‘No, no,’ and I was like maybe he doesn’t rib because I don’t know. And so then I was like speechless, and I probably didn’t act like I would have in my head where I’d be like, ‘Yeah…’ Yeah, I was trying to be all cool, but I was also like, ‘Oh my god.’”
