AEW is all about making opportunities and they’re also not afraid to take risks with a new star. Their two Dark shows on YouTube also gives them an opportunity to let many wrestlers gain valuable exposure working on a television program.

While speaking to Wrestling Observer Radio, Chris Jericho went into how AEW gives everyone on their roster a shot at one point or another. Whether it is a big match on Dynamite or a spot on Dark, AEW is open to see what everyone has and what they can achieve in the company.

“One thing I really love about our company is we give everyone a shot. Nobody is on this roster just to be here whether you’re one of the cornerstones of Dark or you’re working Elevation or maybe you’re like 10 where we put you in the main event and see how you do.”

“With Spears, I think they put him in the Pinnacle now will get him to the biggest position he could possibly be. Once again, you pick the right guys and it’s funny how each guy is a mirror image of the Inner Circle. They kinda used the Inner Circle model for The Pinnacle which works out great.”

The Inner Circle and Pinnacle are set to battle in the Blood & Guts match next week. That match will likely be a violent affair as Jericho wasn’t afraid to discuss either. We’ll have to see who the next big breakout star is in AEW, but Tony Khan is willing to give everyone a chance to excel at one time or another.

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.
