The ROH World Title will be on the line at AEW Full Gear with three men having a chance to dethrone the champion.
Chris Jericho has been the Ring of Honor World Champion ever since he beat Claudio Castagnoli on the Grand Slam episode of Dynamite on September 21st.
Since becoming the ROH World Champion, Jericho has been willing to take on all comers and has managed to hold onto the title, oftentimes by cheating to win, which is not an honorable thing.
This past Wednesday on the November 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite, Jericho beat Colt Cabana to keep the ROH World Title. After the match, Jericho was bullying ROH announcer Ian Riccaboni when Castagnoli, Bryan Danielson and Wheeler Yuta showed up to make the save, which ended up in yet another fight between the Blackpool Combat Club and the Jericho Appreciation Society.
On AEW Rampage on November 4th, Danielson and Castagnoli were interviewed along with their BCC manager William Regal. Castagnoli didn’t like Jericho attacking non-wrestlers like Riccaboni and Claudio also felt that as a former ROH World Champion, he deserved a rematch. Danielson said he was a former ROH World Champion while yelling about why he didn’t like Jericho and Bryan said if he gets one more opportunity then he’ll take that title from him. Regal told Jericho to make his choice.
Later on that same episode of Rampage, Jericho boldly claimed that he would take on Danielson and Castagnoli because he believes the BCC guys don’t even like each other. Jericho also said that his ally Sammy Guevara has never had an issue with him from when they started in AEW, so Sammy is in the match as well. Jericho told Sammy that when it’s just the two of them in the ring after they take out Bryan and Claudio, Sammy will do the right thing. Jericho left while Sammy didn’t say a word.
The match was officially announced for AEW Full Gear on Saturday, November 19th. Chris Jericho will defend the ROH World Title against Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli and Sammy Guevara in a Fatal 4-Way match.
