Chris Jericho went on the attack in a series of messages that he made public through the power of his official Twitter account. It all came in the early hours of Monday morning after the latest pay-per-view event held by the WWE, Royal Rumble, had concluded.
It all started once Jericho brought up how AEW (All Elite Wrestling), which he’s under contract to after signing with the newly launched promotion earlier this month, is only interested in 6-8 talents from the WWE, Impact Wrestling, and ROH rosters.
This would also lead to him taking more shots at WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and ruling out that these weren't drunk tweets but rather completely understood what he was saying.
“Hey, @wwe, @ringofhonor & @IMPACTWRESTLING ... I love watching you push all your randoms, But just know that we are interested in maybe 6-8 of your talents total. We don’t need you! @AEWrestling.”
“Intimidation and fear goes a LONG way in our business guys. But let’s be honest, @BrockLesnar needs to pull up his pants and lose the gut... the dream is over dude. I don’t play by the script... @wwe @AEWrestling.”
