Chris Jericho's 'A little bit of the bubbly' quote from after AEW's All Out show has become a meme hit across the internet over the past few days amongst wrestling fans.
Jericho defeated Hangman Adam Page for the AEW World Championship at All Out on Saturday night, but when he went backstage to celebrate after the show, no one was there to greet him.
In the footage on AEW's YouTube channel, Y2J can be seen making his way backstage. However, he still wasn't able to find anyone to congratulate him, but he did find the catering area ready for his title celebration.
Jericho took a look at what AEW has laid out for him to celebrate his AEW World title win when he notices a champagne bottle on the table. This was when he said the now-famous quote 'a little bit of the bubbly'.
The 'a little bit of the bubbly' line was a hit amongst wrestling fans online and it quickly became a popular meme, with fans adding it to different cultural references from WWE entrance themes, to adding it to the classic Mamba No.5 song. Here are a few of the best ones.
- Kevin Owens explains why he uses the Stunner as his finisher
- Florida man explains how he found Chris Jericho's AEW title
- WWE set to re-draft SmackDown & Raw roster in October
It comes as no surprise either that AEW has already capitalised on the 'a little bit of the bubbly' line becoming popular by producing a wrestling t-shirt.
A Chris Jericho branded sparkling wine probably isn't too far behind.
As for Jericho's future as AEW World Champion, he's already been booked in his first title defense.
Jericho will defend the AEW World Championship in the promotion's next big show, Full Gear, in November against Cody.
Y2J did initially lose the AEW World title on Saturday night due to theft or misplacement, but it was returned to him after being found on the side of the road in Florida on Sunday night.
It will be interesting to see if AEW incorporates the title misplacement/theft into their storyline for the upcoming Jericho vs Cody match at Full Gear.News Now - Sport News
