There are more places to fight than just the ring. Earlier this week, AEW Dynamite debuted with a bang and drew the largest non-Monday Night Raw or SmackDown audience in over five years. The show instantly had an audience and it was clear that the fans were interested in where things were going. They still need to keep moving forward though and that might have taken a step in New York City.
AEW has posted a new video to Twitter showing Cody and Chris Jericho getting in a fight at a New York Comic Con panel with security having to break the two of them up. The fight comes only a few days after the two were in a brawl at the end of the first episode of Dynamite. Cody is scheduled to challenge Jericho for the AEW World Title at Full Gear on November 9.
It was quite the panel. Check out the fight between the two:
Opinion: This is something that you have to expect and there is nothing wrong with it. At some point you need more time than what you have available on television and it isn’t like this broke any new ground. All this did was reinforce a story that was already set up and that is how you help sell pay per views. Now if only the match can live up to the hype that they have set.
Are you looking forward to the match? Who do you see leaving as champion? Let us know in the comments below.
