While AEW has been in talks since its inception, there are a lot of people who believe that the company could not be taken seriously until they have a TV deal in place.
During a recent interview with Forbes, Chris Jericho talked about a number of things and also discussed the TV deals his new wrestling home has on the table.
While Jericho didn’t go in much details, he explained that he wouldn’t have signed if major networks were not involved and the deals he has heard of are ‘game-changing’:
I’m not going to show up somewhere that doesn’t have a major-league television deal. That’s not what I’m interested in doing. I’m not doing this to be a martyr or Robin Hood. I’m doing this to continue to grow my brand and to take over the business and the world. I know a few potential suitors for television. I know some potential ideas as far as how we’re going to do it. I know that both of them that I’ve heard are game-changers.
Apart from this, Chris also discussed how AEW has balanced its roster so far and commented on a possible video game for the company in the future, saying that it’s definitely possible.
