Triple H and Chris Jericho have a very interesting history with each other. Needless to say, they don’t really like each other all too much. The Game and Y2J famously fought over the Festival Of Friendship as well.
Triple H ruffled some feathers today when he spoke to Ariel Helwani about AEW beating NXT in viewership. “No, look, people put so much pressure on this competitive wars, it never was that,” Triple H said. “Look, first of all, they beat our developmental system, good for them. Right? No, it was never that. There was never even a pressure of like ‘you have to beat that.’ Like, it was never that. It’s put on the best product we could.”
Jericho then spoke to Inside The Ropes’ Alex McCarthy about what Triple H said. Obviously, The Wizard was not short on his words.
“Once again it is just changing the narrative and changing the history, which makes me laugh. Because when it started, it was not developmental, it was a third brand, it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon, and all the other bullsh*t that they said, so of course we [AEW] beat the developmental or whatever you want to call it, but who gives a sh*t?
It’s such old news, and the show sucks, NXT sucks, it’s not a good show, and they know it. Whether they were punished or not, they probably were punished. That’s probably why Triple H said those things because he is angry that we beat them, and he is probably angry that we exist. But you know, we don’t care about WWE, we care about our show, we care about putting on the best stories that we can put on, we care about building our fanbase and building our ratings.”
Chris Jericho doesn’t seem to care what Triple H says now, and that’s not really a new trend. AEW will keep doing their own thing, and Jericho’s opinion on the situation, or WWE’s production doesn’t seem to be changing either.
