Chris Jericho claims AEW tried to license a popular song from a very famous band.

However, they couldn’t make it because the band wasn’t interested in it
We actually tried to get ‘Back In Black’ for our return promo after attacking The Pinnacle in our locker room and they didn’t even give us the time of day, ”said Jericho. “There were others. We wanted Van Halen right after Eddie died, we wanted to use ‘Running With the Devil’, they came back with ‘$ 500,000’. Well, that’s just a polite way of saying “no fucking way”.

Jericho went on to say that the song fits her new role in AEW as a more serious wrestler.
“I thought the whole concept of Back In Black fits. It’s a saying that everyone knows. It rolls off the tongue and fits our way of thinking. We return more concentrated, more serious and darker. So it was all this return. “H / T Wrestling Inc.
