Chris Jericho’s contributions as a pro wrestler need no introduction. He has competed in various promotions all around the globe for three decades. Jericho is also proud to be working in AEW and isn’t afraid to show it. Being veteran in the business, he doesn’t really have much care about what his haters have to say.
The world of professional wrestling suffered great loss with the passing of Brodie Lee. Many stories about how great of a human being Lee was have been shared and wrestlers continue to pay tribute to him.
Brodie Lee passed away last year on December 26 due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a rare condition that causes lung tissue to become irreversibly thickened and stiff.
Former WWE Superstar Kalisto, now known as Samuray del Sol, made his debut on AEW Dynamite this week. He teamed up with AAA star Aerostar and faced FTR for the AAA World Tag Team Titles, but couldn’t win the match.
After Dynamite went off the air, Del Sol took to Twitter and stated that he prayed and talked to Brodie Lee before his AEW debut.
Prayed and talked to John (Brodie lee) before my match.. thank you for showing me your home @AEW and giving me the strength and energy I need it today
forever your in my heart Hermano…
Chris Jericho saw Del Sol’s tweet and blasted him for misspelling Lee’s real name – Jon – as John. After getting some backlash for his comment, Brodie Lee’s wife Amanda Huber also gave support to Chris Jericho.
You spelled his name wrong.
Yeah, not an excuse to spell someone’s name wrong if you’re name dropping
Why is that? I feel like it’s reasonable to expect a level of respect of spelling someone’s name right if you want to name drop them.
Many fans debated on the matter as some felt Del Sol should have been warier of what he had said. Others felt otherwise on this matter. Regardless, Del Sol had a solid AEW debut and it remains to be seen whether he will make more appearances or not.
