AEW Blood & Guts ended with a big spot where Chris Jericho took a giant fall off the top of the cage. This was a shocking moment to cap off the special event, but some trolled the spot because fans could obviously tell that the fall was cushioned.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez revealed what Chris Jericho really fell on during that big spot. They put up cardboard boxes to catch him instead of a traditional crash pad.
“Just a note here, it wasn’t even a crash pad. You know what Chris Jericho fell on last night? They put a bunch of cardboard boxes and they covered it with a ramp. Cardboard boxes. Bro, if I’m on top of a cage and you tell me that I’m gonna bump off onto one of those big foam pits then I’ll do it in a heartbeat. You tell me I’m doing it on a bunch of cardboard boxes, I’m not doing it. The guy’s actually ballsy for falling onto cardboard boxes.”
Chris Jericho is 50-years-old, so that’s still quite a feat, no matter what he’s falling on. Knowing that Le Champion took that fall onto a bunch of cardboard boxes also makes us look at the entire event a bit differently.
