A Little Bit of the Bubbly is a phrase said by professional wrestler Chris Jericho during an improvised backstage promo after he became the first AEW champion at the AEW pay-per-view All Out. Jericho, upset that no one backstage was celebrating his victory, grabbed a microphone and began improvising a promo throughout the backstage area. Approaching a bottle of champagne, he said "Ooh, a little bit of the bubbly!" The line quickly became a meme in the wrestling fandom, as fans created mashups and image macros based on the phrase.
