AEW wrestler Chris Jericho recently appeared on Keepin’ It 100 podcast with Konnan. Jericho talked about various things and then discussed AEW and mistakes the wrestling promotion makes.
He said that the promotion often overlooks little tidbits. AEW has done some segments that resonate with other storylines too and Jericho believes this is one of the things the promotion needs to take care of.
“Everything isn’t always good. We have a lot of details that slip through the cracks. We still have quite a few times when very similar angles will happen one after another. An example of that was a few weeks ago when the big question was, will MJF join The Inner Circle? We had this big long thing about whether MJF is going to join, I think it was a Town Hall, that’s when Bischoff was there asking the question, is he going to join.”
“As soon as we were done we went to a package where Taz is asking Will Hobbs if he’s going to join Taz’s team and in the production meeting I was like, ‘guys, how can that even be?’. It’s the exact same thing. So we never noticed that. It’s like well, maybe we should move that package somewhere else and in the future, let’s not use the word ‘join’ for Will and Taz – ‘Are you going to come with us? Are you going to work with us? Are you going to be a part of our team?’.”
He further added that he would like to see more preciseness in AEW. Y2J said that sometimes AEW slips up and doesn’t pay more attention to little details here and there.
“Will MJF join the Inner Circle?’ was the tagline for our PPV match. Therefore, any other joinings should be suspended for this duration and that’s just common sense. Sometimes those things kind of fall through the cracks. I would like to see a little bit more of a detail guy, or a little bit more attention to those details.”
