Chris Jericho has had an excellent time in AEW so far and continues to be featured heavily. He is passionate about the company and is proud of all they have accomplished. However, there are still many improvements that can be made which he can see and is trying to do something about.
Jericho spoke to Keepin It 100 with Konnan, where he was asked about things he would improve in the company. He said that “everything isn’t always good,” and the company has things they can definitely work on and make better. The fact that there are many similar camera angles going on simultaneously is what caught his attention first.
“Everything isn’t always good. We have a lot of details that sometimes slip through the cracks. We still have quite a few times when very similar angles will happen one after the other. An example of that was a few weeks ago when the big question was if MJF would join The Inner Circle. I think there was a town hall when Bischoff was asking the questions. As soon as we were done, we went to a package where Taz was asking if Hobbs will join Taz’ team. In the production meeting, I said, ‘guys, how can that even be?’ It’s the exact same thing and they didn’t notice that.
I said, ‘maybe we should use that package somewhere else and in the future, let’s not use the word join for Will and Taz.’ Let’s say ‘Are you going to come with us? Are you going to work with us? Are you going to be part of our team?’ Will MJF join The Inner Circle was the tagline for our PPV match, therefore any other joinings should be suspended for this duration. That’s just common sense but sometimes those things fall through the cracks. I would like to see a little more attention to detail.”
It is certainly helpful that AEW has a veteran like Chris Jericho can notice everything that goes on in the company and helps to improve them.
