Drastic times call for drastic measures. Chris Jericho will be putting his three decade long career on line against MJF at AEW All Out.
On the August 18th edition of AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho lost to MJF in the final ‘Labour of Jericho.’ To get to MJF, Jericho had defeated Shawn Spears, Nick Gage, Juventud Guerrera and Wardlow but his long-time rival proved to be one challenge too far. Not only did MJF pick up the win, he did so by forcing Jericho to tap out. The result meant that Jericho has now lost to MJF three times.
After being absent from the AEW Rampage announce desk on August 20th, Jericho returned to TV on Dynamite. Taking to the ring with microphone in hand, the Canadian star discussed the personal toll that the defeat he had taken on him. However, he wasn’t about to give up, pledging to keep attacking his rival until everything was all said and done.
With that in mind Jericho had one more proposition for MJF. One more match. One more match to bring an end to the rivalry, with the caveat that if Jericho loses his in-ring career will be over.
This eventually brought out MJF who explained that after the previous week he said he would never face Jericho again. Despite that, the opportunity to end Jericho’s career proved too much.
It has already been announced that CM Punk will make his AEW debut at the event when he meets Darby Allin. Meanwhile, Kenny Omega will defend his AEW World Championship against Christian Cage.
