Up Next, Chris Jericho!
Judas plays to bring out Chris Jericho! The crowd, of course, sings along with Judas. A replay of Jericho tapping out to MJF last week.
Jericho gets a mic, Jericho says they sound great. Says this has been one of the biggest weeks in AEW history. Everybody has been celebrating except for him. He couldn’t beat the 5 Labours, he tapped out. Jericho says its bothering him because he is Chris Jericho! He has always strived to be better, to stay on top, he has to stay on top, its what he does.
He failed to beat MJF, it has been driving him crazy. Until this ends he will just keep attacking MJF any chance he gets until its over, he doesn’t give a shit! He has a proposal for a way to end this. Invites MJF out. The proposal is one more match, a final fight at All Out. If he cant beat MJF, he doesn’t belong in AEW. He doesn’t deserve to be Le Champion, if MJF wins he will go to the commentary table full time, if MJF wins he will never wrestle for AEW again.
MJF makes his entrance. MJF says this is getting embarrassing. Jericho should leave him alone, Jericho saw MJF’s meteoric rise and Jericho cant leave him alone. MJF promised after he won last week he would never wrestle Jericho again. However, as good as it is to say he tapped out Jericho, to say that he ended Chris Jericho would be legendary. You got the match.
