Posted By Caroline Walsh on 05/15/19


All Elite Wrestling has posted a new video from Chris Jericho in which he congratulates AEW on their new deal with WarnerMedia, which will see AEW air on TNT this fall. However, Jericho made sure to take credit for the company’s success.

He said: “Congratulations to All Elite Wrestling for signing a television deal with TNT. Time Warner! That’s huge! But keep this in mind. While Kenny Omega and Cody and all the other suckups are swarming around Tony Khan and all the executives, all the Warner executives at the upfronts in New York City, I’m here at the dungeon in Tampa training for Double or Nothing. I don’t have time to put on a suit and tie, Kenny, and go act like a hot shot with a bunch of TV executives. All I have time to do is continue training so I can beat your ass at Double or Nothing and get that thank you on behalf of All Elite Wrestling for getting that contract in the first place. Don’t forget: when Chris Jericho signed with AEW, TNT signed with AEW. You’re welcome.”
