In an interview with The Messenger, Chris Jericho revealed that he informed Tony Khan to bring back Mike Tyson, Shaq, and Snoop Dogg as a counterattack to WWE NXT. The Demo God also issued a warning to WWE after NXT won the Tuesday Night War against AEW Dynamite.
“You know, you can only bring in Cena and Undertaker and Cody and everybody else so much because nobody wants to work on their secondary show all the time, And it was a fun little, ‘Hey, F–k you AEW.’ I didn’t even really worry about it… I told Tony, ‘Well, if you want to fire back, bring in Shaq and Snoop Dogg and those types of guys, Mike Tyson. But Tony didn’t do that…. So, don’t get too far up your own a– because you didn’t do that good of a job as far as crushing us. And our show was better than theirs, quite frankly. So, it doesn’t bother me.”Chris Jericho
