Ever since AEW became a reality, there have many solid promos from wrestlers such as Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, Cody Rhodes and others.
Chris Jericho is also one of the top stars who certainly knows how to work a microphone. While speaking on Keeping it 100 with Konnan, Chris Jericho discussed AEW’s style of promos and how he also wants to incorporate the old-school style as well.
“It’s funny because somebody was pointing that out, the old school promo or something, and I watched that just today,” Jericho said. “Actually, Ricky Starks did one and I was like– I text Cody and Tony and I was like, ‘When did you guys start doing this? I want to do this! This is how I learned how to do promos in the box in WCW, we’d have those in the back.”
Jericho then said that way too many talents put emphasis on acting. While acting is an important aspect of professional wrestling, one has to know when it is the best time to act. He mentioned some AEW stars who know how to cut promos.
“It’s rare that they can find good actors,” Jericho said. “But take an example like Cody. He knows how to raise the voice at the right time. Dustin Rhodes, he knows exactly where to kick it in. I feel I’m the same way, but there is a lot of guys just basically talking.”
