During the interview, Jericho was asked about his take on promos that involve kayfabe and reality. The former AEW World Champion pointed out a recent promo by MJF and used it as an example.
Chris Jericho spoke about MJF’s segment with Sting from a few weeks ago and how the top AEW star brought up Lex Luger being in a wheelchair. Jericho claimed that such promos don’t get heat but rather make people feel uncomfortable (H/T: Wrestling Inc):
“People at this point know that this is show business. There’s only so deep you can go. I think that, for example, there was a line a few weeks ago that MJF used about Lex Luger being in a wheelchair to Sting. I don’t think that gets heat, I think it makes people feel uncomfortable. I think it makes people feel bad, and you don’t want that.”

MJF will be in action against Darby Allin at AEW Full Gear
MJF has been feuding with Darby Allin for a while now. The two men have gone back-and-forth for weeks, with the 25-year-old trying to break Allin mentally. The Pinnacle’s leader even went the distance by taking out Sting in order to send a message to Allin.
Last week on AEW Dynamite, the former TNT Champion finally got his hands on MJF and attacked him. The two men engaged in a wild brawl within the crowd ahead of their Full Gear showdown.
