Chris Jericho announced on Twitter that Jim Cornette is banned from watching future episodes of AEW Dynamite and AEW Dark.
Jericho tweeted, “I am officially banning @TheJimCornette from watching any & all future episodes of #AEWDynamite & #AEWDark. He is under @AEWrestling suspension until further notice. Thank you. #DemoGod”
Cornette and Jericho are long-time friends so the tweet was likely sent with a wink at fans who know that Jericho is not bothered by critics even if one of them happens to be a friend.
Cornette was not too positive about this past Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite and he had a lot to say about the debate segment between Jericho and Orange Cassidy with Eric Bischoff as the moderator. Among other things, Cornette and co-host Brian Last said Jericho has reverted back to the comedy version of his character that he did when he was in WWE.
While the segment may have bothered some fans, it’s hard to argue with the ratings. The AEW Dynamite numbers have been increasing in recent weeks and last Wednesday’s show was one of the most-watched episodes of the year.
We’ll find out this Wednesday night if Jericho and Cassidy can help draw another big number for AEW.
