After Chris Jericho defeated Hangman Page to become the first-ever All Elite Wrestling world champion in Chicago Saturday, he took a tour of the backstage area to verbally and viciously sum up why AEW is Jericho. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. (BTW, the “nice hair, idiot” guy is Brian Pillman Jr.)
But, as if to diffuse all credibility, this photo showed up on Twitter: Jericho, me and the late Gene Okerlund with WCW in 1997. Talk about “nice hair, idiot.” Yikes.
