the truth is that it's just funny, the small-mindedness
of it, that people don't give Vince credit for being
the businessman that he is. So, when people talk about
him as a businessman, there's just so many crazy misconceptions.
The truth is, all of what we're doing right now, this
business, is because of him, Triple H explained.

in-ring skills and being over are only a moderate
part of the deal with Jericho. Hes super smart

odds are against the long-term, decades-plus success
of the promotion, but I would love to see it happen.

to see AEW become a sustainable pro wrestling company
for decades into the future.
