Chris Jericho has spoken up about how much he enjoyed the match he had at AEW All In London with Will Ospreay.
At AEW All In London which took place at Wembley Stadium, Chris Jericho sang his own “Judas” song at the show with his band Fozzy on hand to play the song. Jericho revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley (aka Bully Ray) gave him that idea.
Will Ospreay was Jericho’s opponent at All In London in a match that gave Ospreay the home field advantage so to speak since Ospreay is from England.
The first time ever matchup between Chris Jericho and Will Ospreay was heralded as one of the better matches at All In. They got plenty of time and Ospreay found a way to get the win over the veteran Jericho, which was an outcome that wasn’t a surprise to most people.
On his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Jericho spoke about the enormity of wrestling in front of 81,000+ fans at All In London and what he said to others in AEW about it.
“Any time you have a big show like that, there’s a certain vibe to it,” Jericho said. “Everyone knows that it’s not just another show. We had a big team meeting on Zoom to discuss, kind of, the protocols and that sort of thing. At the end of the meeting, I just told everybody ‘Just enjoy this. This is not something that happens every day. It might never happen again.'”
“Once again, the biggest wrestling show of all time. Think about that; I’ve been doing this for 33 years, and I’m having my biggest show ever on this day? After thousands and thousands of matches? Just a really cool vibe and a really cool moment.”
Chris Jericho Felt He Had “One Of The Best Matches” At AEW All In
At 52 years of age, Chris Jericho is still performing at a very high level. On his podcast, he spoke about how he felt he had one of the better matches at the show while praising other matches.
“I think it was one of the best matches of the night. And the thing about the show, it wasn’t just one show stealer. There was the main event between MJF and Adam Cole, that was great. There was FTR vs. Young Bucks, that was great. And then there was Stadium Stampede, that was amazing. There was quite a few matches in there that people might think was the best one on the show. And the fact that some thought ours was is an honor to me.”
“It’s just one of those moments. Will and I shared something that can never be duplicated, and it’s something that no one will ever know what else it was like, to be in the ring for Jericho and Ospreay for our first-ever confrontation, and have such a great match, and a match that was so critically acclaimed. And once again, me just shoving it at the social media haters’ asses.”
On the AEW Dynamite episode that followed All In, Chris Jericho and his friend Sammy Guevara made it clear they were going to try to make things work as a tag team, so they will be gunning for the AEW Tag Team Titles in the weeks ahead.
