So of course, he kept tabs on the promotion's most recent PPV, Survivor Series.
The show proved to be a hit with fans and Chris thought it was good too. But he wasn't particularly amused by the segment involving The Miz, Daniel Bryan, and their pleading for Bray Wyatt's "The Fiend" character to be stopped.
The Fiend now reigns as WWE's Universal Champion and is admittedly a stroke of genius. Fans have definitely taken to the ghoulish gimmick and WWE will continue to milk it as much it can.
Le Champion can't have any problems with The Fiend either, but he thought it was pretty pathetic how Miz and Bryan begged. Jericho says WWE can find ways to continue to put Wyatt's alter-ego over but doesn't quite get why they had to be so unrealistic at Survivor Series.
“I watched Survivor Series, it was really good, but there was this promo with The Miz and Daniel Bryan and Miz saying for the sake of our children and our families you have to stop The Fiend. Nobody talks like that," he explained on Konnan's Keepin it 100 podcast.
"You can still put the guy over big time, but what is he going to do, break into your house? Steal your kids? It’s just not believable. It’s cartoonish in a bad way."
Jericho also touched on the creative affairs over at AEW, claiming that a lot of the stuff he's been involved in would not be possible at WWE.
The Fiend Can Do No Wrong
Chris' point is a good one, no one actually thinks The Fiend will attack anyone's family - unless, of course, there's a pertinent storyline.
But, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what he says now as fans have bought in and probably can't view anything involving the character as being corny or cartoonish.
