Published 08/07/2021, 7:30 AM EDT


WWE fired wrestlers yet again. What’s new in this you’re thinking? Well, this time the biggest wrestling promotion in the pro-wrestling business fired a dozen superstars from NXT and 205 Live. Yes, you read it right. A dozen. While it all happened, AEW took notice.

However, this time there are no wrestlers fired from the main roster which seems odd because the WWE fired individuals from NXT and 205 and even a referee. Maybe WWE is saving the main roster wrestlers for the end of this month.

This time around, the inaugural AEW Champion Chris Jericho took to Twitter and let the fans know which is the better company out there.

Without wasting much time, ‘Le Champion’ went online to boast about AEW and said that they love the fans but most importantly their wrestlers, dissing WWE’s massive firings hours ago.

“I think now more than ever it’s obvious, – @AEW is the best pro wrestling company in the world today! Both for fans …and especially for performers. Nothing can stop us now!” Jericho wrote.

Same as always, this tweet from Jericho received a mixed reaction, where some fans agreed with him and others just straight-up dismissed this thought.

The trust the fans are showing in AEW’s product is massive here. The promotion has not announced a single match segment for Friday night’s event, but this didn’t stop them from booking the tickets.
