Chris Jericho is Le Champion of AEW. He is also pretty good for the ratings.

During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted something pretty impressive. Chris Jericho holds the distinction of being the only star in AWE who has never lost to WWE NXT.

“The exception is that undefeated still is Le Champion Chris Jericho. Chris Jericho’s segment beat NXT. Chris Jericho is the only individual whose segment has never been eaten by NXT. I believe Chris Jericho is the only individual who has never lost viewers. So, he is Le Champion.”

AEW lost to NXT in the overall viewership this week. It’s a marathon and not a sprint, but NXT still started without around 1 million viewers with the opening Adam Cole vs Finn Balor NXT Title match.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
