While speaking on his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho talked bout his No Rules match against Nick Gage. Jericho stated that he believes the match deserved a five-star rating.
“We did the match with Nick Gage and came up with all the cool spots that you saw. one of my favorite matches. You talk about a five-star match. I don’t know if there’s such thing as a five-star deathmatch. Of course, there should be and of course there is. In my opinion, it was a four and a half, five-star match. If I were doing an addendum to my List of Jericho book. I [will] put it in there as four and a half stars [or] five stars. I never had a full-fledged deathmatch before. I’ll never have a full-fledged deathmatch again. But that night, we had a great one,”
Jericho made it clear that he is finished with deathmatch wrestling for good as well. Jericho also returned during this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite New Year’s Smash. It remains to be seen what the company has planned for him in the coming weeks.
