AEW star Chris Jericho was not about to just stand by while people were body-shaming him on Twitter.

In fact, he made sure to let them know he can do more push-ups, weighted squats and incline sit-ups:

Chris Jericho @IAmJericho

Awwww they are? Well either way, I guarantee I can do more timed pushups, weighted squats and incline sit-ups than all of them AND still draw record ratings. I have a really thick skin, kids.... 😘 #LeChampion https://t.co/0pnHQ2NSDa

Kellie Haulotte of Wrestling Inc. noted a number of viewers made jokes at Jericho's expense on Wednesday when he appeared on Dynamite following the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks that aired on TNT.

It is notable that the jokes came after an NBA broadcast, as Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic recently responded to body-shaming comments as well.

"I mean, people on Twitter say every stuff," he told reporters. "But it's true I'm not in my best shape. I will get there for sure. But, you know, I've never been a muscular guy, so what can I say?"

Doncic can probably do more push-ups than those making comments on Twitter as well.
