Jericho: “We don’t care what WWE or NXT does”
Chris Jericho on The AEW vs. NXT “Wednesday Night War”
“We didn’t start a war or a battle, we are just worried about our own stuff. We don’t care what WWE or NXT does. Obviously we love beating them in the ratings every week, to the point where it’s almost embarrassing at this point, but we’re not obsessed with it.
Twenty years ago there’d be a party if WCW’s pyro went off before WWE’s. Every moment was so intense, every segment of the show had to be mapped out to beat WWE. We’re not like that, we don’t know what NXT is doing and we’re worried about our own show and our own business and I think that’s why we’ve been so successful.”
