All Elite Wrestling really may be the hottest ticket in town as far as pro wrestling goes.
The rise of AEW is well known. Landing CM Punk back in August helped. Getting Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson to jump from WWE to AEW really helped.
Following Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York, a fan posted a video of the No. 7 train back to Manhattan from Queens that showed AEW fans singing Chris Jericho’s Judas theme song by Fozzy.
Jericho, whose match for Grand Slam will appear on TNT Friday night, saw the video and loved it.
Without Chris Jericho, AEW never gets off the ground. Jericho has been there from the beginning and has helped what seemed like a small promotion evolve into legitimate competition for the WWE.
The fans love Jericho and especially, his theme song. This train ride full of fans just goes to show that AEW is here to stay and the WWE has a competitor now.
Being a wrestling fan is a lot of fun.
