As revealed on this week’s AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho, AEW World Champion, and Stephen Amell, star of the CW superhero series Arrow and founder of Nocking Point Wines, have teamed up to create A Little Bit of the Bubbly, the new official sparkling wine of AEW.

The inspiration was sparked by Chris Jericho’s one-man backstage celebration after winning the first AEW World Champion title on September 1, 2019, when he revealed with a bottle of sparkling wine. Subsequently, his A Little Bit of the Bubbly catchphrase became an instant viral sensation resulting in countless memes and millions of views worldwide. Flanked by his notorious Inner Circle, Jericho has been wreaking havoc throughout AEW…. both in the ring and at the post-show afterparties. Now, you can join in on the celebration with a libation suitable for Le Champion!

A Little Bit of the Bubbly is a sparkling Riesling produced exclusively by Nocking Point Wines in collaboration with Chris Jericho. Pre-sales begin Wednesday, November 27, at 8 pm ET. All preorders will ship Dec. 9-10-11 to ensure there is extra ultra-premium bubbly to spray around this holiday season. Fans can order packs of two ($46), three ($69), six ($138) or 12 bottles ($276) at www.LittleBitoftheBubbly.com.

“I’ve been working non-stop over the last few months to deliver a product that’s as classic and as great as I am….and I have,” said Chris Jericho. “After you get a taste of A Little Bit of the Bubbly, normal wine, beer and even vodka will taste like swill. This is pretty much the GOAT of adult beverages. You’re welcome.”

“It’s Jericho. It’s AEW. It’s A Little Bit of the Bubbly,” said Stephen Amell. “I’m marking out.” This isn’t the first time the worlds of professional wrestling and wine have collided. Stephen has always been a passionate wrestling fan and even served as a tag-team match opponent to Cody Rhodes in 2015. He and Cody created their first Nocking Point Wine partnership in 2017, launching Dream, the sparkling wine named and designed in the likeness of Cody’s legendary father, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.

 

As announced last week, Part Two of Fight Network’s “Diary” on Sami Callihan has been put online. The second docu-series focuses on Callihan’s World Championship Steel Cage match on the debut episode of IMPACT! on AXS TV taping from Windsor.

Fight Network takes viewers inside the mind of polarizing IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Sami Callihan on the day of his unforgettable title match against Brian Cage at Bound For Glory, in a special two-part episode of the original combat sports profile series Diary.

Diary captures the enigmatic brawler before, during, and after his headlining bout for the IMPACT World Championship, giving viewers a no-holds-barred glimpse into the man behind the mayhem and his preparation for one of the most important days of his career.

IMPACT Wrestling is available to view in the UK from 2 am Wednesdays on the IMPACT Plus app and airs at 9 pm Wednesdays on Fight Network UK (Sky 192/Freesat 161), (circa) 11 pm Fridays on 5Star and repeated on Fight Network UK at 9 pm on Sundays.
