I’m reading Jericho’s second book, and in it, he talks about not adapting initially to “WWE Style,” which contributed to his getting a lot of heat and rendering his first few months of matches the drizzling shits.

Is it possible they’ve paired AJ with Jericho to help him ensure he adapts to WWE style quickly and avoids any heat or missteps? It seems ridiculous at first blush that a guy with as much experience as AJ would need mentorship, but this is the self-mythologizing bizarro world that is WWE.


Not weird at all. AJ legit spent years working in rings that were smaller or had more sides, and it’s tough to just get thrown into a bigger ring and have **** matches without any adjustments.
