Jericho is the type of mother fucker to try to take this negative feedback and try to use it to sell his podcast more to the people who will still listen.

"The episode that they said that I should never release to the public!"

Notches. He had him on his podcast he didn’t throw him a damn parade. Christ almighty
Sorry for not liking nazis and not wanting them to be platformed by the face of a company that purports inclusiveness? This is in no way an extreme position to use your power as a consumer to advocate for your values.

Oh and the Usos and Reigns, pretty sure they're Democrats. The Usos are very anti-Trump if I recall.

If we’re looking for wrestlers to have good politics, hoo boy. It’s not impossible but I mean, come on. Look at the storylines.

While I'm not ready to full on protest AEW (yet) over this, I was about to watch AEW Dark....and now I don't feel like it.

I was excited about Dynamite tomorrow, but now I doubt I'll even watch it.

Was looking to get the Full Gear PPV, and now I don't care.

Maybe It will change, but I was pumped about AEW and all the wind was just taken from my sails.

While I absolutely buy the premise of Jericho just not giving a fuck and being willing to bring people on his show for pure shock value, bringing on pretty much any conservative politician at this point let alone a fucking Trump is absolutely fucking dumb on his part.

I’m not willing to jump the gun and claim he’s jumped on the MAGA bandwagon (at least not until I’ve read about what was said on that episode) but whether he has or not the fact that he did that POS a solid and gave him a platform to sell his stupid ass book sucks. As someone who has followed him since tape trading with kids at school to WCW and then WWE this sucks. He’s always been my favorite wrestler and whether he’s a card carrying full on MAGA lover or not I hate this.

a company can be inclusive even if some employees are not, it’s not really hard to comprehend or it shouldn’t be

It literally blows my damn mind how people are saying AEW has been awesome and now are instantly “I won’t watch it”

As somebody who enjoys wrestling and UFC, I won‘t let this stop me from watching the product. Still, I‘m pretty disappointed in Jericho because I thought he would be smarter than this.
I can‘t think of any wrestler or UFC fighter who‘s openly in the f.ck Trump camp, which sucks.

Why would anyone give Jericho the benefit of the doubt lol. He's praised Trump on his podcast since before the election even

Same, list all the good they’re doing vs. this and I’m not about to jump ship, if for nothing else than the two LGBT wrestlers they employ need my support, not their fault CJ did this

People expect too much from AEW , don’t the Khans do business with Saudi Arabia?

I'm wondering if I should even show up tomorrow. If a nasty bigot chant started at Jericho that caused AEW headaches I'd be down with that though.

I'm willing to chalk this up to Jericho being a knucklehead/tonedeaf, but combine it with Hager (Hager being hired is more of a black mark than this) and I am upset.

Jesus christ. I couldn't imagine being this consumed by politics to let a fucking podcast cause me to boycott something

Chris isn’t the kind of podcaster to challenge views, especially shitty ones so I’ll read the transcript before calling him out.

I mean, you know the Singh bros aren't Republicans. You just need to see that Kid Rock HOF where he talks about slamming Democrats. Zig, Corbin, Angle and ESPECIALLY AJ yucking like it's the world's funniest comments. Those two....hooooooo.

Under normal circumstances I agree, but we're dealing with fascists who have declared war on us. That makes things different.
If this was Bush, I wouldn't be that upset. The current Republican party is not the party of George Bush, even if they were moving in that direction. The Republicans crossed the Rubicon the day Trump got nominated.

Whether I go or not is prob going to depend on whether something else comes out or not today. Omega being around does give them credit- say what you will about Omega, he does genuinely care. Could tell just by seeing him interact with folks at CEO in person.

I would say Cody is, he used to get a lot of heat on Twitter for using Trump supporter or Trumpbot as an insult

This when you know that the other side is winning, when you give up something that you’re passionate about and really enjoyed, but give it all to them and you’re left with nothing

As a progressive it's really hard to enjoy wrestling. Too many wrestlers having connections to Trump/conservatives
