Chris Jericho recently spoke to Kevin Kellam of 101 WKQX in Chicago. During the interview, Y2J spoke about the character development in AEW and why fans need to patient with that part of programming.
“There’s quite a few. Darby Allin’s one of those guys from the start. Look where he’s at now since the beginning. Scorpio Sky’s another one, tonight we’re really going to make him a star. I think Jungle Boy—my teenage daughters don’t care about wrestling, but they love Jungle Boy. He’s something that wrestling is missing, which is a heartthrob for the teenage girls, like a Jonas brother, one of those types of guys who the girls love. I like that idea. I think Luchasaurus is going to be a big star for us. I think Jake Hager when he starts wrestling for us is going to be somebody that’s hard to deal with in the ring.
“Pentagon, Fenix, The Young Bucks, and a lot of other younger guys coming up that they haven’t gotten to yet. We’ve only been doing this for nine weeks. It’s only been nine weeks, wait until nine months from now and see where everybody is. We’re going to get to everybody, I promise you. We know that you need to know who these people are, but when you’re basing these things over the first few months, year, whatever it is over what Jericho is doing, what Cody’s doing, what Kenny’s doing, Moxley’s doing, there’s only two hours of TV time every week. So that does edit down some of the personality profiles, but we will get there.”
