NFL star Lamar Jackson got called out by Chris Jericho on last night’s AEW Dynamite, and he talked about the moment at a press conference. Last night’s show saw Jericho say in the middle of calling for a former ROH champion to face him that he would even “whip Lamar Jackson’s ass,” referencing the Ravens player who was in the front row.

Jackson was asked about the moment at a press conference on Thursday, and you can see some highlights below:

On being called out by Jericho: “I got called out. I wasn’t looking for it, I wasn’t thinking he was going to call me out, you know. Chris Jericho called me out. I was like, I didn’t really hear what he said at first. Then they told me, I started laughing like, ‘this man is crazy.’ I enjoyed it though. Growing up, I was a huge fan of wrestling. So It was cool to go see that.”

On his favorite wrestler growing up: “I was kinda hopping around, I had my favorites. You know, Jeff Hardy, John Cena. Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, those guys. I was like, ‘Damn,’ back in the days. I used to always watch it.”
