AEW’s Chris Jericho trolls WWE over Brock Lesnar winning Money in the Bank

Roughly 20 - 30% of the tweets and comments I saw after WWE ended their 2019 Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) with Brock Lesnar sitting atop a ladder clutching a briefcase were some variation on “AEW can’t get here soon enough”. Another 15 - 20% were “F*** this company”. The rest were Game of Thrones related, but that’s besides the point.

Alls fair in love and war. Even trolling.
