Chris Jericho Begged To Retire As He Wins More Gold

Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho is not one of AEW’s most beloved stars but he continues to be one of the most successful as he won gold at Dynasty.

Chris Jericho was AEW’s first-ever World Champion but since losing that crown he has not held any more AEW gold with Jericho only capturing the Ring of Honor World Title for 80 days in 2022.

Now at Dynasty, Jericho’s wait for AEW-sanctioned gold continued but he added a new title to his own legacy that he had never held, the FTW Championship.

Jericho had formed a short-lived alliance with HOOK in recent weeks but showed his true colours when he pushed HOOK’s father Taz over in the middle of the ring. That set up a showdown between the FTW Champion and Jericho in St. Louis.

Chris Jericho Defeats HOOK

HOOK had only lost twice in singles matches during his AEW career before facing off with Jericho but now he has to add a third loss to that list. HOOK remained defiant in the face of two Judas Effects from Jericho but was eventually put away as Jericho nailed him in the head with Floyd the baseball bat.

During the match, Jericho was showered with chants of “Go home Jericho” and “Please retire” as the fans gave their thoughts on the man now calling himself ‘The Learning Tree.’ After the bout, Chris Jericho apologised to both HOOK and Taz for his actions.

There was another new champion crowned at Dynasty in the main event as Swerve Strickland picked up the biggest win of his career and made history in the process.
