Chris Jericho on new wrestlers and importance of storytelling
“The level of athleticism has just gone through the roof nowadays in 2023. If you watch on Dynamite few weeks ago Kenny Omega vs Vikingo from Mexico. Vikingo I never seen like, he literally goes against any type of aerodynamics or defies gravity, even just the angles and that sort of things. There are lot of guys like that, I remember high-flying, I do the lionsault, the second rope moonsault and that back in the day was one of the most amazing crazy move. Now it’s not a big deal”
“Wrestling has always been and always will be storytelling, it’s about the characters and the story you tell to get people interested. The moves, the amazing acrobatics blows your mind, but it’s the story that sells tickets.”
