Less than two weeks after AEW’s historic All In London event at Wembley Stadium, Chris Jericho has shared insights into the backstage atmosphere during the monumental show.
Jericho, speaking on his Talk Is Jericho podcast, acknowledged that a show of this magnitude carries a unique energy. He mentioned that there was a team meeting on Zoom before the event to discuss protocols and other aspects. Towards the end of the meeting, Jericho encouraged everyone to savor the moment and appreciate its significance. He emphasized that such extraordinary shows don’t happen every day and may never happen again.
“Any time you have a big show like that, there’s a certain vibe to it. Everyone knows that it’s not just another show. We had a big team meeting on Zoom to discuss, kind of, the protocols and that sort of thing. At the end of the meeting, I just told everybody ‘Just enjoy this. This is not something that happens every day. It might never happen again.’
All In London set records, boasting the highest paid attendance in wrestling history with over 81,000 fans in attendance. Jericho, who faced Will Ospreay in one of the night’s standout matches, expressed his gratitude for being part of such a historic event.
“Once again, the biggest wrestling show of all time. Think about that; I’ve been doing this for 33 years, and I’m having my biggest show ever on this day? After thousands and thousands of matches? Just a really cool vibe and a really cool moment.”
The event marked a significant milestone in Jericho’s illustrious 33-year wrestling career, showcasing the magnitude of AEW’s success and influence in the industry.
