Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia and 2point0 make their way to the ring. 2point0 salivate over Jericho, not only as an in-ring performer...but as a human-being. Jericho says the earth has been around for over four billion years but we're all lucky enough to have lived during the Chris Jericho-era. Jericho says for over 30-years, he's done nothing but deliver five-star matches, amazing promos and help build companies, including AEW. Jericho says instead of praising him, everyone degrades him and talks trash about him on social media. Jericho says he's the best total package performer in professional wrestling history. Jericho says Sammy Guevara left him, Santana and Ortiz disrespected him and Eddie Kingston made him look like a fool making him tap out on pay-per-view. Jericho says Hager, Garcia and 2point0 appreciate him and that's why they're The Chris Jericho Appreciation Society and nobody else in AEW can touch them because they're just all a bunch of professional wrestlers. Jericho says he's not a professional wrestler, he's a sports entertainer, which gets a massive jeer from the crowd, so Jericho says it again. Garcia says he has something to get off his chest, Garcia says if Jericho's going to stand there and call himself a sports entertainer, then he is too. Garcia says 'my name is Daniel Garcia and I'm a sports entertainer'. Jericho calls Garcia more terrifying than anything Edgar Allen Poe. Jericho says Garcia appreciates him because Jericho once donated thousands of dollars to a fund for independent professional wrestlers who were hurt in a car accident in Buffalo in 2019...one of those wrestlers were Daniel Garcia. Jericho says 2point0 won't be known as 2point0 anymore, because that's a dumb name from bad creative. Jericho renamed Matt Lee, Daddy Magic Matt Maynard and Jeff Parker is now Cool Hand Ang' Angelo Parker. Jericho says got a phone call from his former bestfriend Kevin [Owens] and he said he needs some help for two of his buddies who were just fired and asked if he could put them on Talk Is Jericho so they can get a job. Jericho says at the end of the podcast, he realized they have passion and desire and AEW hired them and that's why they appreciate him. Jericho calls Jake Hager is right-hand man and says he [Hager] had had his [Jericho] back since 2010 and calls him the hand of The King. Hager says they're The J.A.S. and they beat up pro wrestlers. Jericho calls himself the last great mind in pro wrestling. Jericho says remember the date, March 16th 2022, the new era in AEW, the sports entertainment era. Jericho says they're The Jericho Appreciation Society and that's entertainment.
