Shayna Baszler was apparently watching AEW Blood & Guts along with so many others. She also saw the final spot where Chris Jericho took a bump off the cage. It didn’t come off looking the best on television, but you still have to give the 50-year-old credit for taking the bump.
Baszler seemed to paint an analogy about Blood & Guts’ special effects. She used Game Of Thrones as a reference point as she said that they didn’t really want people burned on the show, but special effects certainly helped out.
We don’t ACTUALLY want a village to be burned by a dragon in GoT. If they did that, that would be really bad. But if the special effects would have been garbage, it would have sucked also & everyone would have said so.
Shotzi Blackheart also threw a little shade at the Jericho spot because it looked like he was landed on a soft bed. The topic of conversation was also popular backstage in WWE as some said that Le Champion was trying to be Shane McMahon.
Chris Jericho actually landed on a bunch of cardboard boxes that were set up. The “steel” on top was simply a mat. The spot might have turned out better if they took different camera angles, but the big angle still got people talking.
