“They came on Wednesday just to mess with us. Take your head out of your ass and go make money. Don’t worry about our company. We’re not worried about you. We don’t have a screen up that shows what’s going on every moment on NXT like they do for Dynamite – leave us alone. Do your own thing. Go to Tuesdays, grab an extra 250k viewers, finally get your demo where it needs to be because it’s embarrassing on a Wednesday night against us.
“The Demo God thing is not a gimmick, it’s real. So go! Go to Tuesday, go to Sunday, go to any other day that you want. But don’t exist just to mess with us because we’re beating you every single week. It’s kind of embarrassing for NXT at this point. So I think you should throw the red flag, retreat, go to Tuesdays, get more viewers, make more money, get more guys over and don’t worry about what we’re doing because we’re going to continue on either way. And we’re winning every week anyways, so just go your own way. That’s the best way to do it.”
Jericho knows how to get a reaction out of wrestling fans with quotes like this. His words probably won’t have much influence over Triple H & Vince McMahon... but the logic behind them might. It’s surely information WWE and USA Network executives are considering anyway.
Stay tuned. To which night? We’ll keep you posted.
