AEW Dynamite has fared well since NXT moved to Tuesdays. Their first two unopposed shows drew over 1 million viewers, very good numbers which Chris Jericho thinks have caused Vince McMahon to second-guess AEW.
Speaking with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Jericho talked about his appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions. In short, he thinks it was one of the coolest moments in wrestling history. Here is the quote:
“It was lightning in a bottle sort of thing with [respective company heads] Vince McMahon and Tony Khan giving their approval. I think it was also well-timed. The Peacock relationship with WWE was just starting. They wanted something huge out of the gate. It was perfect for us considering AEW had its first unopposed show [without NXT]. Once that big Dynamite rating came in though, I think Vince may have had a little bit of second-guessing. Would they do it again? Maybe. I don’t know if you can find anyone with respect and goodwill on both sides that would allow that. If they don’t do it again, it was one of the coolest moments in wrestling history,”
Chris Jericho is currently one of the top stars of AEW and is set to compete inside Blood and Guts this week.
