Chris Jericho recently spoke with Shakiel Mahjouri of ET Canada for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the leader of the Jericho Appreciation Society spoke about how much All Elite Wrestling has grown since the company was first launched in 2019, as well as areas he sees that the promotion could use some improvement.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.
On where AEW needs to improve: “We’ve gotten so big in three and a half years. So there are a lot of growing pains as we expected there would be. I don’t think anyone thought that we’d be doing the numbers that we’re doing, both in the arenas and ratings-wise,” he said. “So obviously we’re working on our infrastructure, working on all that sort of thing behind the scenes on building the corporate side of AEW.”
On how people in AEW are still learning how to work live TV: “Everybody’s learning how to be on live TV still. It really is just that everyone was thrown into the deep end and had to react accordingly,” he continued. “I’ve been very proud of everybody that’s been able to do that. We’ve had some bumps on the road, but that’s expected in pro wrestling. We’ve become a major television entity in a very short period of time.”
