Chris Jericho is certainly an established veteran in the world of professional wrestling. Having worked in the industry for well over three decades now, Jericho is more than aware of his own worth. Being the master of reinvention, it seems he changed up his finisher thanks to a pro wrestling legend.

Before making his way to AEW, Chris Jericho has competed in almost every major pro wrestling company including WCW, WWE, NJPW and others. He especially made a name for himself in WWE.

Chris Jericho also has a penchant for reinventing himself, which is exactly what he did throughout his time in WWE. Jericho always managed to change with the times and stay relevant through it all.

While speaking on the newest episode of Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho noted how The Great Muta changed up his finisher from the moonsault to The Shining Wizard to take it easy on his knees. Jericho revealed he did the same when it came to adding the ‘Judas Effect.’


Once again, I got that idea from Great Muta (switching up finisher). When the moonsault starts tearing his knees apart, what’d he do? A Shining Wizard, a jumping knee. It’s so easy. But once you beat a couple guys with it, then suddenly it’s over and that’s what wrestling is all about.

This past Wednesday, during the broadcast of Dynamite, Chris Jericho played a crucial role in preventing Ricky Starks from completing the Guevara-Garcia Gauntlet. We’ll have to see how their feud will progress in the coming weeks.
