Chris Jericho Explains How He Knew AEW Would Beat NXT In Viewers

AEW World Champion Chris Jericho told Grado’s Wrestling Daft podcast that he knew AEW would defeat NXT head-to-head because NXT is still the minor league and AEW has more star power.

“NXT is still the minor league. Those guys are still unknown performers, it’s not a competition to us and I knew we’d win because we have more star power,” said Jericho h/t “When you look at the end of our first week of TV who was out there at the end? Chris Jericho – we know him! Dustin Rhodes – we know him! Jon Moxley – we know him, he used to be another name and but we know who that is. Jim Ross is commentating – I know that guy!”

“Our competition is RAW, is SmackDown, is Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, and all those guys!

I think it was a stroke of genius by Vince McMahon to put NXT on against up because it took the focus off “the main show and AEW” and put it on “the minor league and AEW.”
