Chris Jericho got a nasty surprise on Wednesday night when MJF announced his next ‘Labour Of Jericho’ was against death match specialist Nick Gage, now Gage has a stark warning for The Demo-God.
MJF is putting Jericho through five labours that Jericho has to complete successfully to get a one-on-one match with The Pinnacle leader. At Fyter Fest night 2, Jericho successfully completed the first of those labours as he defeated Shawn Spears in a match where AEW’s Chairman could use chairs to his heart’s content while Jericho could not.
After the match, MJF wasted no time in letting Chris Jericho know of his next challenge, GCW Champion Nick Gage. Gage came out to a huge reception and now speaking to a fan via Cameo, Mr. MDK All Day says he’d rather die than lose to Jericho.
“You’re asking me about the Painmaker, well guess what, I don’t give a f*ck what his name is. It could be Chris Jericho, it could be Painmaker, Pacemaker, or whatever. I’m going to go in that ring and I’m going to leave that ring with a weapon in my motherf*cking hand with blood dripping off of it. ‘Cause I’d rather die in that ring than to lose to that motherf*cker. I’m going to represent for all my Death Match Warriors out there because I’m going to carve him up from head to toe so when that Painmaker looks in the mirror every day when he wakes up, he’s going to know the God of this sh*t did that to him. You know what it is. It’s MDK all motherf*cking day.”
