7 Ups & 6 Downs From AEW Dynamite: Thanksgiving (24 Nov)

5. A Total Square

The worst of the night's interrupted backstage segments was Chris Jericho's with Alex Marvez. 2point0 barged in on them before Jericho could get into it, so the Inner Circle leader made fun of Matt Lee's head, called him ugly, and continued his recent trend of relying on weak playground-calibre verbiage.

We are currently watching Jericho in one of his worst forms. The unlikeable, puerile babyface act has always been his weakest. Given his reputation as a master of reinvention, it's been disappointing to see him go back to it these past few months.

Perhaps this leads to 2point0 getting a nice heat angle to write Jericho off television for a few weeks for his upcoming Fozzy tour. That'd work nicely, but supposed babyface's content here was near the bottom tier.
