The most decorated athlete in combat sports, Brock Lesnar is the highest paid star in WWE today.

Former WWE icon and All Elite Wrestling‘s top draw, Chris Jericho has always been a big-mouthed Twitterian (is that even a word?). Recently Y2J took a shot at the reigning Universal Champion (and WWE) on the platform.

(Jericho deleted the following tweets soon after)

Intimidation and fear goes a LONG way in our business guys. But let’s be honest, @BrockLesnar needs to pull up his pants and lose the gut… the dream is over dude. I don’t play by the script… @wwe @AEWrestling

Hey @wwe, @ringofhonor & @IMPACTWRESTLING … I love watching you push all your randoms, But just know that we are interested in maybe 6-8 of your talents total. We don’t need you! @AEWrestling— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) January 28, 2019

On Wrestling Observer Forum, Dave Meltzer opined that the ex-WWE Superstar is trying to get a match with The Beast in AEW.

“Were his tweets about Omega in 2017 also drunken tweets? Learn from history. He’s building for future opponents just like 2017. Whether it happens, that’s up to dueling checkbooks, but that’s Jericho’s goal here.”

“I know things on this subject weeks ago. I don’t write anything, especially as much as it hurts my hand, unless I have knowledge. He is 100% working you here if you think these are drunk tweets.”

“I believe that Vince will pay anything not to lose Brock because we’ve seen it with UFC and I think it will be even stronger with AEW. Brock’s number is so high but who knows? Who knows, it would be a coup. Put it this way, Chris Jericho wants a match with Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho has a lot of sway. That doesn’t mean a deal is gonna be done that’s a stupid deal but who knows.”

As reported earlier, Paul Heyman is set to have a three-way negotiation with WWE, UFC and AEW post-May for Lesnar’s next deal.
