Chris Jericho will certainly go down as one of the greatest WWE superstars of all-time, but he currently stands on the other side of the Wednesday Night Wars.
After leaving WWE in 2017 to continue his tour with Fozzy, Jericho spent time in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He then came aboard for AEW, joining a star-studded roster that landed Cody and Brandi Rhodes and The Young Bucks.
But unfortunately for Jericho, a visit to Madison Square Garden for the New York Rangers' home opener against the Winnipeg Jets didn't exactly go as planned. As you can see here, the graphics team at MSG made one giant mistake.
Madison Square Garden, you just made the list.
The wars took off even more once WWE announced that NXT would be moving to Wednesday nights under USA Network, thus putting them in direct competition with AEW Dynamite.
AEW won the ratings battle this week, and WWE put out a statement to congratulate them on the premiere. Jericho responded by saying WWE released the statement "Because they're embarrassed."
So all that makes you wonder how Jericho felt about being listed as a WWE superstar when he's a main event talent for the rival promotion. But judging by his face in the photo, Y2J was having himself a great time in New York, so it probably didn't bother him that much.
This week's episode of Dynamite was certainly one to remember. Jericho, Ortiz and Santana went up against Kenny Omega and Matt and Nick Jackson. Jon Moxley and Dustin Rhodes came out at the end of the show to join the brawl. Jake Hager (known as Jack Swagger in WWE) made an appearance out of nowhere, thus confirming he has signed with the company.
Jericho Is A Key Factor In The Wars
Jericho left WCW during the Monday Night Wars to sign with the WWE promotion in 1999. 20 years later, and the tables have turned completely. Jericho remains one of the world's greatest wrestlers and main event draws, so he'll continue to play an integral role in helping AEW push WWE to the limit.
