Chris Jericho Explains How Recent Surprise Appearance Came To Be AEW

Earlier this year, Chris Jericho and the entire Jericho Appreciation Society made a surprise appearance at the PWG Battle of Los Angeles show.

The group accompanied PWG World Champion Daniel Garcia, taking on the team of Evil Uno, Jonathan Gresham, Kevin Blackwood, Michael Oku & SB KENTo.

Jericho spoke about the appearance on Talk Is Jericho, and how it came to be.

He said:

“For anybody that wants to know how that happened, Excalibur and I had spoken about it months ago. After a show, we were having some drinks and I was like ‘Yeah sure, I’d like to do PWG. Let’s try and figure it out sometime.’

“Then, about a month or so ago, Danny [Garcia] mentioned that he’s in BOLA and that there’s always this tournament. He said ‘Why don’t you and Sammy come and we’ll do the six man.’ I was like ‘Why don’t we make it the whole gang, all eight of us and do like a ten man, but still have Anna and Tay and Jake on the outside with us as well.’ I think that was kinda the cool part was that the entire group showed up.

“Once I suggested it to Tony Khan, he was super excited about it. When we first started AEW, I think the Bucks did a few of these [types of shows] and I think Kenny and I showed up at a small indie in Georgia. Not to have a match, but I think I did a run in. We were kinda like the new company that was just showing up wherever we wanted to and we kinda had this street credit because of it. I felt like this kinda took us back to that. No one’s gonna expect this and everyone’s gonna be talking about it. So no matter what we do in this match, it doesn’t matter because they’re going to be going nuts because it’s such a cool surprise.”
