Chris Jericho made his surprise return at AEW Dynamite: New Year’s Smash. Le Champion had been away while touring the UK with his band, Fozzy. Jericho made the save as Eddie Kingston, Santana, and Ortiz were being beaten down by 2.0 and Daniel Garcia.
AEW has announced that Jericho will be making an appearance on this week’s episode of Dynamite. It will be the first chance for fans to see the Ayatollah of Rock-n-Rollah on TBS since 1999 when he was on the network as a part of WCW. Jericho will have some choice words for Garcia and 2.0.
The announcement was made by AEW on their Twitter account. Jericho will address the fans and likely his adversaries during the segment. It will mark Y2J’s historic return to “The Mothership.”
“TONIGHT for the first time since 1999, @IAmJericho will be on TBS, LIVE on the first #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork and the first #AEWDynamite of 2022! What will Jericho have to say? Tune in at 8/7c to find out!”
