Chris Holds Backstage AEW Meeting Over Concerns
Chris Jericho is seen as a locker room leader for All Elite Wrestling (AEW). He has decades of experience and is one of the most talked about wrestlers in pro wrestling. Now, Jericho is using his veteran status to speak up on ways to improve the AEW product.
On Konnan’s Keeping It 100, Jericho said he held a meeting about the lack if rules in AEW. He signaled out the tag team division and how the referees need more authority. That way, the product will come off better.
Why does Chris Jericho have to hold a backstage meeting regarding the shite state of rule enforcement in the AEW tag team division when two of the EVPs are literally the center piece of said division?

Chris Jericho’s Message To AEW Officials And Talent
“I called a team meeting — I’ll tell you right now,” said Jericho. “The lack of tags and the lack of just normal tag team wrestling psychology drove me nuts to the point where that was one of the big knocks against our company in about week three or four if you remember.”
“So, I called a meeting with the whole crew and said you’re burying the refs. If you don’t have any rules then you don’t get any heat and it’s killing our show because our honeymoon period is over and now people are watching us and they’re being confused by the lack of rules. So that’s changing slowly.”
Jericho praised The Lucha Brothers, but mentioned how lucha libre rules still involves making tags. Konnan did not seem to agree with Jericho’ statement on lucha libre rules. Since then, The Lucha Brothers have started making more frequent tags.
Any advice from Jericho should be taken into consideration as he remains a big star across the globe. In recent weeks, it seems like AEW is doing a better job of making sure their superstars tag in-and-out.
Seth Rollins Vs. Kevin Owens Rumored To Be Off TLC PPV
TLC is only days away, but WWE just started announcing matches. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens was heavily rumored, but that match now seems off.
During the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that Seth Rollins’ broken pinky at last weekend’s live event is the reason for the delay. The two started feuding right after Survivor Series when Rollins turned heel and blamed the RAW roster for losing at the pay per view.
On RAW, WWE shot an angle where the AOP attacked Owens. Then, Rollins delivered a curb stomp and Owens was taken to the local hospital.
