Jericho simply wrote, "But I thought the sky was falling!!??". It is not clear exactly what he was referring to, but AEW has been dealing with some challenges, including AEW World Champion MJF suffering a shoulder injury.

The tweet claimed that FS1 and TBS are in roughly the same number of homes. As of July 2023, FS1 was in 71.375 million homes, per Sports Business Journal. Sports Business Journal reported in 2022 that TBS was in 78.842 million homes, but they lost over three million viewers since the beginning of 2023.

It's important to note that FS1 is in far fewer homes than SmackDown's typical channel, FOX.
