This past weekend, we reported that both Chris Jericho and Triple H were at a surprise party for Ric Flair’s 70th birthday and took a photo together. In the latest episode of his Heated Conversations podcast (via Wrestling Inc, Booker T said that there was no heat between the two men at the event, even though Jericho chose to signed with AEW instead of WWE. Here are highlights:

On the creation of AEW: “It’s great to have something, an alternative. It’s not a competition, it’s an alternative. You may not want to watch this game that’s on this channel but you might want to watch that one, you know what I mean? Both games are going to get good ratings because that’s how many people there is in the world. So, to be able to have an alternative is great. To be able to have so many new, young talent be seen and be able to make their legacy – put it down as far as they want to leave it. That’s really what it’s all about. I don’t think it’s about competing.”

On Jericho and Triple H at Flair’s party: “Chris Jericho was at the party, Triple H at the party, and we’re all sitting there talking together and there ain’t no heat, or animosity, or anything like that. I really think it’s enough room to go around. And that’s what Chris was talking about as far as what he’s bringing to the table as well from a backstage perspective, and really try to push this thing to a dimension where we have not seen in the wrestling business perhaps ever. And that right there, when you do it that way, you never know how big it’s gonna get.”
