You're spinning this to make it something it's not.

I mean dude it's pretty clear that he is a trump supporter.

Don't misgender me by calling me "dude". Also no. A billionaire supporting trump making him richer doesnt mean he is a huge trump fan like you keep claiming. He's spoken out against him. A huge trump fan would be someone donating to his campaign. Which shad hasn't done.

Jericho's podcast always had the suspect as fuck guest from time to time.

A previous podcast summary

Conspiracy Theorist Greg Carlwood, host of "The Higherside Chats" podcast is sharing some pretty interesting ideas about 9/11, secret societies, the sinking of the Titanic, aliens & UFOs, and who really controls the banking industry, and JFK assassination details. He's also sharing theories on who filmed the moonlanding, and why prohibition existed in the US in the 20s. Things that make you go hmmmmm...

He gave money to the inauguration. Like every other billionaire. He has bit given any money to trumps campaign and he has called Trump a "great divider". Stop trying to create a narrative.
I'm not trying to create anything. I mean it's clear he supports him. If you want to separate his negative comments on social issues but glowing compliments on the economy, then whatever but I find that weak.

Anti-aew people like you are confusing. Why do you guys put so much energy into hate?

People saying "WHY YOU HATE AEW" but we hate WWE for similar reasons. From outside, people just don't get how ridiculously corrupt and evil WWE is that the AEW stuff feels like nothing in comparison.

He gave trump a 1 million dollar 2016. And has publicly said that he supports Donald Trump. He can talk the talk all day but you can't deny what he's already said about Trump.

He gave money to the inauguration. Like most billionaires. He did not give money to fund trump or his campaign. Stop spreading bullshit.

Thats pretty much my point. I stopped watching WWE over the Saudi BS, Ill stop watching AEW now because its apparently filled with racist garbage trump supporters. Literally nothing of value was lost.
You’re gonna have to get off the internet and stop watching all shows too because guarantee at every show or tech company has minimum 1 republic/trump supporter working there

Jesus Christ take it down about 10
Notches. He had him on his podcast he didn’t throw him a damn parade. Christ almighty
Giving Bigots a platform to speak is exactly the kind of thing that is hugely damaging especially when there are tons of impressionable young kids/teens who follow Jericho.

It would take a lot for me to drop Chris Jericho, and this is exactly a lot. Fuck you, Jericho and your weird hair-plugs.

Edit: Just unfollowed on Twitter, Insta, and unsubscribed from his podcast.

This sucks but I'm not boycotting AEW over this. If I boycotted every wrestling promotion for featuring people with shit opinions there would literally be nothing left including the indie alternatives people are suggesting to "replace" AEW.

I'm fine with just boycotting Vince you know the guy that covered up a murder, housed pedophiles in his company, and distributed steroids and other drugs to his employees.

Edit: also someone mentioned Mick Foley as one of the few good men...you know hes been accused of having sexual intercourse with a 14 year old girl, right? The whole ECW lockeroom in the early 90's as well.

i Posted a rumor. You’re out here defending the khans donating to trump

shoudl we also bring up Cody flip flopping on unions too?

its possible to be in support of aew while still calling out their bullshit
You posted a rumour like it was fact, you pulled it out of your ass, you didn't even post where you saw the rumour.

All that CTE and normalizing independent contractor bullshit totally makes sense wrestlers think like heehaws politically.

Most rich athletes and wrestlers are Republicans. Even the “woke” athletes drop the social justice schtick when it messes with their money.

So wait, we're expected to hate and not support any wrestlers who might be Republican? Good luck with that.

Trump JR is a piece of shit but I have no problem with Chris Jericho inviting him on a podcast, nor does it lower my impression of Jericho

I guess I see it similar to Joe Rogan. Love his show, have hated a lot of his guests, but it’s always atleast interesting. And I don’t believe having a guest on a talk show makes you complicit in that guests messaging or agenda

I don’t disagree at all but let’s not act like there aren’t millions of trump supporters in other lines of work that speak out in favor of him

This is giving him yet another avenue and audience to speak out directly, ain't hard to just say no. I mean, what insight is Donald fucking Trump Jr going to give you for your show?

A company doesn't get to be considered progressive for hiring a transgender wrestler if they follow up by hiring a transphobic piece of trash like Jake Hager. All the props go to Nyla Rose for being good and getting her self hired. But AEW is sure as fuck not getting to claim to be a progressive company when do stuff like that.
