Jericho on Punk “No One Really Cares” | News


AEW World champion Chris Jericho recently did an interview with Uproxx . He spoke CM Punk returning to WWE, his feud with Dean Malenko and more. Highlights below are from 411Mania.

Jericho on CM Punk returning on WWE Backstage-

“It’s a long time coming. We knew there would be a Mötley Crüe reunion and we knew CM Punk would come back to wrestling. It was just a matter of time. I think he came back with more of a sigh than a scream. It seems kinda funny that he came back on a show that drew 150,000 viewers where it could have been 5 million viewers. But if it’s part of the process to slowly wean him into the wrestling business, then good. The WWE sure needs him. You need stars in the business. Good for him for coming back. I just think it was not as big as it could have been or should have been. He’s back for the first time in five years and no one really cares. But I’m sure it will lead to more. I don’t see how it can’t.”

On his stare down with Dean Malenko in AEW-

“It was the best feud in WCW in 1998, or one of them. It was a cool full-circle moment. The environment of AEW is conducive to that. It’s okay to reference something that happened 10 years ago or 20 years ago. It’s like a Star Wars or Avengers-esque universe we’ve created. So why not focus on that? Now once again, I’m not a nostalgia character. I’m always evolving for that reason, to not become a nostalgic act, but I think it’s okay to tip to your past every once in awhile and let long-term fans know we’re in this for a reason. There’s lots of easter eggs in stuff that I do. After doing this for as long as I have, I really appreciate the fact that there’s people who have been there for 10 years, 15 years, 20 years. So let’s continue to do those things you mentioned. It’s like reading a great comic book.”

The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with US & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have 1-3 events and some have over 20 on the same day so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it. This calendar is totally free, owned and operated by Pro Wrestling fans simply wanting to help other fans.
