In an interview with Sports Illustrated, All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President and talent Matt Jackson discussed how important former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho is to the product.
“Most wrestlers want to be over and they don’t care about anybody else. The prevailing attitude in this business is often, I want you to do good, just not as good as me, Jericho wants everyone to be elevated, we made the right call. Look at how he made Darby Allin, those matches with Jungle Boy and Scorpio Sky were really important too and Jericho watches all our matches too. People don’t realize he’s the guy that pulls us aside and says, this was great, but you could do this better, we don’t have enough of those guys in the business.”
