Chris Jericho had no idea he was about to spark a massively popular meme when he ad-libbed his way through the backstage area after winning the AEW World Championship at “All Out” but that’s exactly what he did.
Jericho cut an improvised promo for AEW’s YouTube channel after the show went off the air, strolling through the bowels of the Sears Centre. He berated the rest of the AEW roster for not congratulating him on his victory, called the paramedics “morons” for not tending to his bleeding face and eventually arrived at the catering table, where he delivered an instant classic of a line.
It didn’t take long for “a little bit of bubbly” to take on a life of its own online. The hashtag “#ALittleBitOfTheBubbly” trended all over the world as people turned it into an impressively versatile meme.
Pop open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy some of the best examples.
And yes, there is already an officially licensed T-shirt capitalizing on the meme. A Chris Jericho-branded line of sparkling wine can’t be far behind.
