Chris Jericho appeared on Busted Open Radio earlier today to promote tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
Dave LaGreca said, “We can now officially say that Chris Jericho is part of the Sirius XM fight nation family. The Talk is Jericho podcast is going to be available right here on Sirius XM fight nation.”
Jericho was asked,” You know, you fu**ed over Eddie Kingston really bad and fans are pissed. Is there any way that you retire Judas as your entrance music because of that?
Jericho answered, “It’s something that I always think about, but it’s also something that, are you cutting off your nose to spite your face? We have something very special in AEW that happened very organically, and I think it kind of transcends heel or babyface. I think it’s one of the very special moments that’s synonymous with AEW that nobody else has in any wrestling company. Nowhere is a song that everybody sings the moment that we come out, the moment that I come out. So I have thought about retiring it a few times. I might retire it. I might retire it tonight. But I also think that the show business aspect of it, and the spectacle of it, far outweighs whether I’m a heel or a babyface, because the point of pro wrestling is to get people’s people involved, and to have them hooked, and to get them into the show. This is a great example of that, that we didn’t have to shove down anybody’s throat. It just happened. I think that’s something special and to take that away, just because I’m a bad guy might get some heat for a week or two, but I think keeping it on and maybe spinning it a little bit differently, and I’ll figure that out, I always do. I think it’s more important to have that. Like I said, the spectacle of it, I think, is just something very special that you can’t see anywhere else.”
Jericho said Tony Khan will be making a big announcement in a little while regarding a match for tonight’s Dynamite show:
“Tony’s going to make the announcement. Tony throws around big announcements quite a bit, but he always always delivers. There is another match that’s going to be added to the show tonight that’s going to be a big one. Something that you’re not going to want to miss. You will be extremely disappointed if you do not watch Dynamite tonight with the match that we’re going to have that Tony is going to announce, I believe over the next few hours.”
