AEW gets more love from the political world.
2020 Democratic Presidental Candidate Andrew Yang didn't give Chris Jericho a "thank you," but he did offer congratulations. Yang took to social media to comment on Chris Jericho's AEW World Title victory at All Out and offer his support for All Elite Wrestling.
Members of the AEW front office have often spoken about their desire to give the power to the wrestlers, offering equal pay and health benefits.
Jericho posted the following response.
Thanks man. Best of luck future Mr President! https://t.co/6cZTlnl7UP— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) September 2, 2019
This is the second time a major politician has taken notice of AEW. Following Double or Nothing in May, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praised Cody Rhodes for his comments about diversity.
AEW will hold their first television show on TNT from Washington, DC on Oct. 2.
