AEW: Chris Jericho comments on WWE’s view on ‘Comedy’

Speaking on Keeping it 100 with Konnan, Chris Jericho praised his current run with AEW, and compared the comedic values of WWE and AEW.

“In order to encapsulate and have a story, there has to be ups and downs,” Jericho said. “And the original idea, the original connection with MJF, is the comedic element because we’re very similar characters. But don’t think this is going to be a Doink and Dink finish. There’s a lot more to it behind that.”

“My view of comedy is you always play it straight,” Jericho said. “WWE comedy is d–k and fart jokes. That’s why a lot of it doesn’t work well. Don’t try to be funny. Because when you try to be funny it’s never funny. And that’s been my attitude with all these segments.”
