What's the story?

All Elite Wrestling Superstar Chris Jericho recently took to Twitter and lashed out at fellow AEW Superstar Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

Jericho slammed MJF for stealing his 'scarf gimmick', which resulted in a Twitter war between the two Superstars.

In case you didn't know...

All Elite Wrestling seems to be doing well when it comes to fan participation. Its first show, Double Or Nothing, managed to create a social media storm among wrestling fans. The PPV displayed a bunch of incredible matches, plus the shocking debut of Jon Moxley, who proceeded to attack both Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega after the main event of the night.

It was recently reported that All Elite Wrestling's next major show, All Out, sold out in 15 minutes! The news was revealed on Twitter by Cody Rhodes, and several Superstars chimed in on it.

The heart of the matter

Maxwell Jacob Friedman, famously known as MJF, was quick to post a tweet in response to All Out selling out in 15 minutes. He took the credit for the ticket sales, adding a hashtag that could possibly be a shot at Chris Jericho.

This led to Jericho replying to MJF and accusing him of stealing his scarf gimmick. Jericho told MJF not to do the same in regards to the ticket sales. It's worth noting that Jericho has taken credit for AEW's success on multiple occasions.

It didn't end here though, as MJF fired back at Jericho, referring to him as 'dad'. In response, Jericho told MJF that he would let him sit in the locker room, if he agrees to carry his bags!


What's next?

All Out will be broadcast from the Sears Centre Arena on August 31st, 2019.
