Aubrey Edwards has officiated plenty of Chris Jericho matches and there will likely be plenty more to come. There was a time when Edwards didn’t know Jericho as well as she does now so things got a bit intimidating.
Edwards was recently on Talk is Jericho where she went into some detail about how she felt when first working with Y2J. There was still an awful lot of pressure not to mess up.
“[It was] terrifying. [laughs] I’m not going lie, I was scared in that match. People ask me like, what my favorite match is, and they assume it’s that one. I’m like, ‘Oh, no.’ I was all in my head, I was so worried. It’s my first time working with Chris. Turns out he’s — you’re cool, great, cool guy and super easy to work with. But I’m like, ‘I just don’t wanna f*ck up.’ I’m so nervous. I’m worried I’m just going to drop the belt because it’s like 40 pounds. I was so in my head about that whole thing, that I don’t think I enjoyed it in the moment. Now, watching it back after I’m like, ‘Okay, this was good. I’m happy with my performance. I could have done a couple things differently/.’ But yeah, I was nerve-racked.”
Odds are Aubrey Edwards will play the referee role for many of Chris Jericho’s matches to come. As time went on they obviously got more comfortable with each other as well. Few people have been able to get in Chris Jericho’s face and scream quite like Edwards.
