Last night (Dec. 15) at TLC, The Miz was rocking some very Miz-like attire for his match with Bray Wyatt:
To my eyes, it looks similar to most of the Snuggies-inspired nonsense The A-Lister has been wearing for the past couple of years. But it is black leather and there’s a scarf-like component, so I see where jokes about it looking like something Chris Jericho would wear are coming from.
So did Jericho, who found a tweet making one of those jokes and used it to brag/accuse that Miz is a Y2J knockoff:
He stole everything else, so whatevs... https://t.co/esgbTvrELP— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) December 16, 2019
Again, seems like a stretch to me. Jericho’s done a lot of creative things within the arrogant heel archetype, but he didn’t invent it.
But this gets a little publicity for him, and by extension AEW, while the wrestling world is otherwise talking about a WWE show. So...
UPDATE: Jericho wasn’t the only one having fun with The Awesome One. WWE’s Jorge Bolly (fka El Hijo del Fantasma & King Cuerno) noticed that armbreaker he used on Bray Sunday night...

Pentagon noticed, too. One of his bosses in AAA (and old Lucha Underground master) had some non-PG thoughts:
