“Le Champion” compared his looming match with the success of AEW; there was never a guarantee that the company would thrive, but it defied the odds and became the hottest company in the business. In closing, Jericho argued that MJF doesn’t have what it takes to beat him on Sunday.
Here are some highlights of the promo, courtesy of our play-by-by coverage.
Jericho notes how MJF has beaten him three times and he can’t let that go, which is why he needed to do whatever it took to get another match with MJF. He says there was never a guarantee that AEW would success, but the company is thriving. He describes how if he didn’t face MJF again, he couldn’t accept how he’d feel if he kept wrestling with that knowledge in his mind.
Jericho says he doesn’t want to stop; he wants to keep wrestling, but if he loses on Sunday, “so be it.” If he loses, he’ll move to commentary and he’ll do the best he can. Jericho warns MJF that he will not take this away from him; to beat him, MJF will have to be at this absolute best. But he says he’s Chris Jericho, MJF doesn’t have what it takes, and he doesn’t have the balls to get rid of him.
