Chris Jericho is on the pursuit to get his hands on MJF once again. He has to last through MJF’s “Labours of Jericho” first, and this week was quite a bloody war with Nick Gage. Next week will be very interesting as well.
MJF revealed that Juventud Guerrera will face Chris Jericho next week. During the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast, Andrew Zarian mentioned that he was told that Chris Jericho is going to bring back a character to batty The Juice next week. It’s been decades since fans saw his Lionheart persona, but it’s very likely that will change at Homecoming.
Somebody mentioned it to me, they said, ‘oh yeah he’s doing Lionheart next week’
It would be interesting to see Chris Jericho take on the Lionheart persona. They teased all of his personas prior to the Painmaker coming in to face Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom, so nothing is impossible. Fans very well could see a real dose of nostalgia at the AEW Homecoming show next week.
What’s your take on this story? Do you miss the Lionheart gimmick? Sound off in the comments!
