Chris Jericho To Face MJF As Labours Of Jericho Reach Climax

Chris Jericho & MJF

Chris Jericho will finally meet MJF in the ring on the August 18th edition of AEW Dynamite.

On the latest edition of AEW’s flagship show, Chris Jericho overcame Wardlow in the fourth ‘Labour of Jericho.’

As the match began Jericho appeared overpowered and overmatched as his previous matches in the series seemed to be catching up with him. Despite this, Le Champion rallied and hit a codebreaker, but Wardlow kicked out at one.

From then on, Wardlow was firmly in control hitting a series of Suplexes and Powerbombs. However, Jericho fought back once more, locking in the Walls Of Jericho, but MJF who was pacing outside the ring, raked Jericho’s eyes to break the hold. MJF decided this was his moment to get in the ring and help finish off his rival but he was spotted by the referee and ejected. The distraction allowed Jericho to grab his baseball bat Floyd and stun Wardlow before landing the Judas Effect to snatch the win.

After the match Shawn Spears came to beat down Jericho but Sammy Guevara made the save. This brought MJF back in the ring before Jake Hager intervened.

As the show went off the air, MJF announced that he will face Jericho next week with the stipulation that Jericho won’t have any entrance music and won’t be allowed to use the Judas Effect.

It has also been announced that Darby Allin and Sting will take on 2.0 in a Texas Tornado Match. On the most recent episode of Dynamite, Allin met Daniel Garcia, but after picking up the win, Allin was about to be attacked by 2.0 before Sting stepped in.

The match will be Sting’s first televised match since September 14th 2015, where he teamed with John Cena to defeat Seth Rollins and The Big Show.

The show will also see the Young Bucks defend their AEW World Tag Team Titles against the Jurassic Express.
