As part of a celebration marking 30 years in business this week, Chris Jericho discussed about leaving WWE on busted open radio and how it allowed him to reach this milestone. Jericho is tired of dealing with how things work in WWE, and he’s got plenty of other ventures to occupy his time. After he became an AEW choice and he jumped the ship, there was a rise to prevent everyone else in the WWE from making the same move.

Jericho also strongly believes that NXT is specifically on Wednesday to stop the speed of AEW, and that dynamite occasionally broadcasts RAW numbers alertly. He said it was due to AEW’s creative freedom, and the idea that everyone on the list would try to be a major event. For example, Mimosa Mayhem Match Jericho thanked Tony Khan for the hastily written drawing assigned to him and it was almost approved. Jericho points out that it will not happen in WWE, and that this is part of their ongoing problems.
