However, during the setup for another move from the ropes, Jeff slipped and crashed to the mat.

Back in the ring, Jericho strategically wedged a chair between the ropes in one corner. Cole evaded a charging Jericho, causing him to collide headfirst into the chair, emphasizing the brutal and unsanctioned nature of the match. The broadcast team humorously acknowledged the lack of liability from AEW for any damages, drawing a lighthearted response.
Jericho retaliated by subjecting Cole to the Walls of Jericho submission hold, and although Cole managed to reach the ropes, the broadcast team noted that Jericho was not obliged to release the hold given the unsanctioned nature of the match. Determined to break free, Cole reached ringside and grabbed a fire extinguisher, promptly using it to spray Jericho and force him to release the hold.
Taking advantage of the situation, Cole utilized the fire extinguisher as a weapon, striking Jericho’s head before covering him for a two count. However, Jericho quickly regrouped and retaliated by spraying Cole with the fire extinguisher. Jericho then dropped the fire extinguisher onto Cole’s abdomen, further inflicting damage. Returning to ringside, Jericho retrieved a kendo stick, intent on using it as a weapon.
To everyone’s surprise, Britt Baker rushed to the ring with her own kendo stick, attacking Jericho. Saraya, another individual who had entered the scene, also fell victim to Baker’s swift strikes. As Saraya retreated from the ring, Baker pursued her backstage, leaving the two competitors alone in the ring.
With the match resuming, Cole utilized the kendo stick as he wrapped it around Jericho’s neck and executed a Backstabber, earning a near fall. Cole then climbed to the top rope, but Jericho reacted swiftly by throwing a chair at his head, causing him to fall off the ropes and crash through a table on the outside floor. Seizing the opportunity, Jericho retrieved a television camera from ringside and proclaimed, “You see what happens when you mess with Chris Jericho.”
Returning to the ring, Jericho rolled Cole back inside and produced a steel chain from underneath the ring, proceeding to handcuff it to Cole’s wrist. However, Cole managed to deliver a devastating DDT onto the chain, earning a two count. Capitalizing on his advantage, Cole handcuffed the other end of the chain to Jericho’s wrist, preventing him from escaping. Jericho attempted to flee, but Cole yanked the chain and followed up with a superkick. Cole then executed his signature Panama Sunrise maneuver, coming close to securing the victory but only managing a near fall.
In a critical moment, Chris Jericho managed to avoid Adam Cole’s Boom knee strike, keeping the match suspenseful.

Taking control, Cole mounted Jericho and unleashed a barrage of punches, utilizing the chain wrapped around his fist. Jericho, now sporting a bloody eye, found himself unable to defend himself against Cole’s relentless assault. Recognizing the situation, referee Aubrey Edwards made the decision to call for the bell, signifying the end of the match due to Jericho’s inability to continue.
