After emerging victorious against Juventud Guerrera, Chris Jericho will face Wardlow at the upcoming edition of AEW Dynamite.
At AEW Homecoming Jericho faced off against a ghost from his past in the form of WCW Cruiserweight legend Juventud Guerrera.
Guerrera and Jericho enjoyed a heated rivalry through early 1998, with the pair squaring off in a mask vs. title match at SuperBrawl VIII. On that occasion, Jericho won, forcing the Mexican to unmask for the first time. However, Guerrera got revenge later in the year, defeating Jericho to win his second Cruiserweight Championship.
For their latest clash MJF made the stipulation that Jericho could only win the match after hitting a move from the top rope. After a hard-hitting contest Jericho eventually claimed the win by climbing to the top rope and delivering a devastating Judas Effect.
Although, as has become a regular feature in recent weeks, Jericho was left little time to celebrate before both he and Guerrera were attacked by Wardlow. After Jericho was left laying MJF announced that Wardlow would be next up in the ‘Five Labours of Jericho.’ Not only that, MJF revealed that he will also be present at ringside.
SUPER JUDAS EFFECT for the win!

Away from his feud with MJF, Chris Jericho recently sat down for an exclusive chat with Inside The Ropes’ Kenny McIntosh. During the interview Jericho addressed recent comments from WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, where he said he doesn’t see AEW as competition.
In response, Jericho said that AEW don’t see WWE as competition either. The former WWE Superstar added that AEW aren’t worried about WWE and haven’t been since day one.
