Chris Jericho rips into Triple H for NXT vs AEW comments

Last updated

All Elite Wrestling star Chris Jericho recently reacted to Triple H’s comment that AEW had only been beating WWE’s developmental brand NXT.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on BT Sport, The Game said that the Wednesday Night War wasn’t actually a ‘war.’

“No, look, people put so much pressure on these competitive wars, it never was that,’ Triple H would begin.

“Look, first of all, they beat our developmental system, good for them. Right? No, it was never that. There was never even a pressure of like ’˜you have to beat that.’ Like, it was never that. It’s put on the best product we could” Hunter added.

Chris Jericho Reacts

Speaking to Inside The Ropes’ Alex McCarthy, Jericho would react angrily to the comments from his former WWE colleague.

“Once again it is just changing the narrative and changing the history, which makes me laugh. Because when it started, it was not developmental, it was a third brand, it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon, and all the other bullsh*t that they said, so of course we [AEW] beat the developmental or whatever you want to call it, but who gives a sh*t?” Jericho began.

“It’s such old news, and the show sucks, NXT sucks, it’s not a good show, and they know it. Whether they were punished or not, they probably were punished” Jericho claimed.

“That’s probably why Triple H said those things because he is angry that we beat them, and he is probably angry that we exist.

“But you know, we don’t care about WWE, we care about our show, we care about putting on the best stories that we can put on, we care about building our fanbase and building our ratings” Jericho concluded.
