Chris Jericho Reveals NFL Didn't Want Jaguars Mascot Involved In Stadium Stampede

The Stadium Stampede at AEW Double or Nothing had a little bit of everything as the Inner Circle and The Elite battled in TIAA Bank Stadium.

The two groups pulled out plenty of football spots including a challenge flag, excessive celebration, and a 100-yard score. The Jacksonville Jaguars mascot even got involved, although the NFL almost said otherwise.

"That was one of the best things I've ever done in 30 years in the business. That was just 10 guys with different ideas, banging it out, not having to worry about so and so approved this. The only thing I had to get approved was knocking out the Jacksonville Jaguars mascot. The only reason I had to get it approved was the NFL didn’t want us to do it, but Tony Khan said do it anyway...everything was kinda free form. It’s just how creative do you want to be and how successful do you want to make the segment you’re in," said Chris Jericho in an interview with The SDR Show.

Jericho previously said that he believes the Stadium Stampede should have won an Emmy. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
