Chris Jericho took major shots at WWE Creative during AEW Dynamite

Chris Jericho and his “Inner Circle” opened up this week’s episode of AEW: Dynamite. Jericho went on to introduce his fellow heel friends one by one to the audience and when he came to Hager, the audience started acting up.

The audience in attendance started chanting “We The People” at Hager before Jericho introduced him. This was a popular catchphrase that Hager used back in his WWE days as the patriotic “Jack Swagger”.

However, Jericho was quick to respond to these chants with a rebuttal of his own. The AEW World Champion said that the chant “sucks” and that it was “a stupid idea from a bad creative”.

    Nor was it the “Look at me, I’m blonde, less talented Kurt angle” thing he started with, for that matter.

    The whole “We the people” era was literally the only time I remember anyone caring about him.

  • Soulshroude

    Well, it wasn’t the lisp.

  • Keith Learmonth

    It’s gonna be really awkward if he takes time off AEW to do his next Bellator fight, and they put it up on the big screen again, and use footage of him in WWE for it again.

    As a WWE fan, I’m enjoying something new and fresh. The promo was good and the shots at WWE creative made me laugh. Sure Hagar capitalized on it during MMA for publicity, doesn’t mean it’s not funny. It wasn’t the worst gimmick but it’s pretty mage for a heel to be saying this stuff

  • Erron Black

    You know what’s worse creative than We The People? Mentioning “creative” on the air…

    I get that they had to address it to make it go away, but AEW runs press conferences. Kill the We The People gimmick there, off the air where it belongs. We don’t need more acknowledgements that pro wrestling is fake.

    Hardly a “major shot”, and in fact make Hager look stupid seeing as he has chosen to use that gimmick outside WWE including in MMA.

  • CC

    And it sucked so bad that Swagger chose to use it in MMA as well … yeah, he must really hate it

  • Sick burn.

    AEW looking more like either WCW or TNA with ex bitter WWE wrestlers. Only I am not buying into Chris Jericho act because to me that all he is to me. Acting like he had it so bad in WWE.

  • Sparti Love

    Crap creative? I personally didn’t care for the gimmick but it did get over with the fans. Also, Swagger had a World championship opportunity at Wrestlemania 29 under the crap gimmick, and Swagger screwed that up getting arrested for drugs prior to the event.

  • Brad Grillakis

    inner circle as the stable name is stupid. It is not even a catchy name.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Sure. Say the only thing that’s gotten Hager over in his career before AEW was “bad creative”. Makes sense.

    -takes shots at WWE every single show, and in most interviews-

    Well… he’s not wrong.
