During the latest episode of Chris Jericho’s Saturday Night Special, the former WWE superstar revealed that he wants to bring Roman Reigns and four other wrestlers to AEW for a variety of reasons.

As quoted by Sportskeeda, Jericho stated that he admires Reigns as both a wrestler and as a person. He also suggested that “The Big Dog” is being held back in WWE.

“I’d put Roman Reigns at the top of that wishlist for anybody because not only he’s a great worker, he’s such a cool guy. If they just let him be him, he’d be the biggest star in the industry for real. So that’s a guy I would love to get my hands on for sure.”

As the Sportskeeda article highlighted, Jericho has been asked similar questions in the past. This isn’t the first time that he’s mentioned Reigns in his responses as well.

Reigns is currently taking time off from wrestling due to the pandemic, but he’s expected to return at some point. While there have been reports of him having backstage heat as a result of his hiatus, it’s unlikely that Vince McMahon would let one of his top stars join a rival promotion.

During the Q&A session, Jericho discussed more performers he’d like to bring into the fold. Among the names were Will Ospreay, Kota Ibushi, Ricochet and Don Callis.

Ospreay and Ibushi are familiar to Jericho as they competed in New Japan Pro Wrestling with each other. Ibushi is also Kenny Omega’s former tag team partner, and he’s been featured on Dynamite in the past.

Callis is one of Jericho’s friends in the business. However, he is currently working for Impact Wrestling in a management capacity as the co-executive vice president. He also works as a commentator and on-air personality, and it’s likely that he’d be given one of these roles in AEW.

Ricochet is believed to have fallen out of favor with Vince McMahon, especially since Paul Heyman is no longer the executive director of Monday Night Raw. He is still contracted to WWE, though, and is unlikely to move companies for the time being.

Matt Cardona — formerly Zack Ryder — joined the company on the latest episode of Dynamite and helped Cody Rhodes stave off the Dark Order. While the wrestlers that Jericho mentioned might be tied up elsewhere at the moment, there are plenty of free agents out there that officials might choose to sign instead.

Geraldo Rivera Calls NYCs Decision To Cancel 9/11 Light Tribute Is About Sticking It To Donald Trump

Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera recently said he thinks New York City’s decision to cancel the annual 9/11 light installation is more about “sticking it to President Trump” than due to safety concerns over the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, reported Fox News on Friday.

Typically, two beams of light would be set up in lower Manhattan to remember where the Twin Towers once stood. It was canceled primarily due to fears the virus could affect the workers who would have to put the display together in the days before the anniversary date.

The 9/11 Museum & Memorial also decided it would not hold a reading of the victims’ names at the Ground Zero ceremony.

Rivera argued that the outlook was about trying to make life seem as “grim” as possible to ensure Donald Trump would be saddled “with the responsibility for it.”

“It’s the harshest kind of partisan politics that you could possibly imagine.”

He also said he felt that abandoning “that noble project for 9/11” marked “kind of a surrender” of the values and ideals that make New York City so impressive.

The light show in question honored those killed on that fateful day by shining a light with a memorial display of all the names of those who died.

Rivera compared the decision not to display the tribute this year to the “Biden-Harris commandment” that asks everyone to wear masks while out in public no matter where they live.

“This is part and parcel of the urban America surrender that I think is part politics and I think the politics part of it stinks. You have to get rid of that. Let’s clear the air, let science talk, and stop doing the, you know, these flamboyant gestures that are truly designed to stick it to the president of the United States.”

According to The New York Post, instead of the usual annual 9/11 traditions, the city is instead planning to light up various buildings in New York City in blue.

Additionally, The Tunnel Towers Foundation, a nonprofit, will host their own small ceremony in Lower Manhattan that allows family members of the fallen to read out the names of those who died.

On social media, many people were upset by the fact the regular 9/11 tribute would not be present this year and felt it did not make much sense since other events, like the MTV Video Music Awards, were still proceeding as planned, albeit outdoors. Some even said they were motivated to go out and protest the decision.
