Chris Jericho Names AEW Star He’ll Never Beat

Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho has told the whole story behind his shocking loss to Action Andretti and says that he will never get his win back against the young star.

At Winter Is Coming, Chris Jericho was coming off the loss of the Ring of Honor World Championship to Claudio Castagnoli at Final Battle. As a result, Jericho wanted to get a quick win against “a jobber” but the star ended up with more than he bargained for.

Jericho clashed with Action Andretti in the young star’s Dynamite debut. To the shock of everyone, including a horrified Chris Jericho, Andretti ended up picking up the biggest win of his career with a running shooting star press.

Speaking on the In The Kliq podcast, Chris Jericho called his loss the “biggest upset in pro wrestling history” and says he’ll never beat Andretti:

“A week before Dallas, I said ‘Okay, we’ll see you this week.’ Then he came into my dressing room and I said ‘I’m working with you tonight.’ He goes ‘Oh my god, this is great.’ Then I say ‘and you’re going over.’ This kid, he was cool, but you could see his face is like are you f*cking kidding me?

“Here’s the story. We’re gonna treat this like a squash match. I’m just gonna beat you up. It’s gonna be like a squash match you’ve saw 1000 times before until I hit you with a Codebreaker, and then you’re gonna kick out and that’s where the fun is gonna start. It was a great moment, it’s the biggest upset in pro wrestling history.

“It’s one of the greatest moments in Dynamite history, but how do you follow it up? I had an idea, we’ll start with Starks but Andretti will still be involved and we’ll have him involved with Sammy [Guevara] and Danny [Garcia] and now he’s a guy. He’s a guy on the show.

“After Revolution, our story is probably gonna be done for now, Action Andretti and Jericho. By the way, I never got the win back. I don’t need to. I never need to beat Action Andretti ever, nor will I ever. I will never beat Action Andretti, I’m telling you that right now. Now he has to go out on his own, but we had a great three-month story. It was a great start for this kid. Now the dust is gonna settle, it’s kinda up to him.”

Chris Jericho will have his hands full again at Revolution when he faces another man with a recent win over him, Ricky Starks.
