Chris Jericho blasts fan who attacked him on AEW Dynamite


Chris Jericho responds on Twitter after attacker posts on Twitter following AEW Dynamite

AEW star Chris Jericho has condoned the behaviour of the fan who tried to ambush him during an episode of Dynamite this week.

The fan then posted on Twitter deeming himself to be a fan of legend Jim Cornette. Jericho responded to the man saying:

“Do you really think @TheJimCornette would condone this you fuckin loser? Jimmy would’ve shoved a tennis racket up your ass and smashed your car windows.”

The fan tried to attack Jericho as he entered to face the leader of The Pinnacle MJF. Jericho, then punched the fan as he was taken down by the security team. The attack was condoned by members in AEW and the backroom staff, as fans have recently resumed filling the arenas.

Jim Cornette distanced himself from the matter and blocked him from his account.

What makes Jim Cornette a legend in the wrestling industry?

Cornette has been in the business for decades, rising to fame as the manager of the Midnight Express. He was the founder of Smoky Mountain Wrestling and was part of WWE creative for a while.

However, Cornette’s biggest claim to fame could be for inventing the Hell in a Cell match. He has also trained WWE legends such as John Cena, Batista and Randy Orton.
