We’ve seen former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer spread his wings quite a bit in recent years, but this one takes the cake.
All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was founded in Jacksonville as an alternative to WWE and other professional wrestling foundations. It’s a part of the JAX culture, and Urbs and assistant Charle Strong just got their first taste of it this past weekend during AEW’s pay-per-view “Double or Nothing.” Tony Khan is the owner of AEW and is the son of Shad Khan, who owns the Jaguars so it wasn’t hard to get the two playing nice in the sandbox.
At one point in a match between Chris Jericho and Maxwell Jacob Friedman who belong to the Inner Circle and Pinnacle factions, Jericho brought Friedman to the office and got both coaches involved.
Strong was seen supplying footballs to hurl at the head of Friedman, while Meyer let Jericho use a laptop to smash over the top of Freidman’s back. In case you missed it, you can watch the entire exchange below thanks to video shared by the All Elite Wrestling Twitter account.

We’re just hoping that the laptop Meyer supplied was backed up. We’d hate to learn that personnel decisions and game plans for the upcoming season were a casualty of Jericho and Friedman mixing it up in TIAA Bank Field.
These are things I’m guessing you’d never see in Gainesville or Columbus.
