Chris Jericho is just as relevant as he has ever been 30 years into his professional wrestling career. That’s because he has constantly been able to reinvent himself, and he has shown he isn’t afraid to get out of his comfort zone. One of Jericho’s best traits is his insane ability to get anyone over, especially the younger talent. That’s why feuding with someone like Jericho can benefit a young wrestler’s career.

A couple of weeks ago, Chris Jericho put Action Andretti over and then kick-started a feud with Ricky Starks where he put him over as well. Their rivalry has been one of the best storylines on Dynamite and has helped Starks get over with the crowd.

Despite beating Chris Jericho a few weeks ago, Ricky Starks has been trying to get his hands of the Ocho once again. Hence, Jericho Appreciation Society came up with the Garcia-Guevara gauntlet match, where Starks would have to beat the other members of the Jericho’s group before he could get a shot at Jericho.

The match took place on the February 8th edition of AEW Dynamite. Starks had no problems putting away Angelo Parker and Matt Menard in quick succession. In his third match, he faced Daniel Garcia. There was a spot in the match where Starks was standing by the barricade and a fan with a mask hit him with what looked like a Judas elbow.

This helped Garcia pick up the win. Following the match, the masked man revealed himself to be Chris Jericho. Now Jericho has taken to Instagram to reveal that he sat in the crowd for 15 minutes before Dynamite began.

“Now that the Ocho’s out of the bag, I’ll let you know that I sat down in that seat about 15 minutes before #AEWDynamite started last night ….and stayed there the whole time until I knocked out @starkybaby!! I’m a genius and I fooled you all…… #ElOcho”

This should lead to a match between Ricky Starks and Chris Jericho at AEW Revolution on March 5th. Only time will tell what AEW books in the meantime. Stay tuned to Ringside News for live coverage of AEW Revolution.
