Chris Jericho paid tribute to Freddie Mercury’s iconic Live Aid performance at AEW All In 2023 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

On a recent edition of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Jericho revealed that the tribute performance was actually suggested by Ortiz ahead of the event. He said,


“Originally, I wasn’t going to be on top of the platform. Ortiz, who came to see Fozzy on Friday, I happened to run into him. He was going over stuff for Stadium Stampede. He said, ‘You guys did a great job, I really enjoyed the show,’ and then he said there was a suggestion he wanted to make of me doing the Freddie Mercury ‘Heyyooo’ from Live Aid, which is the greatest performance of all time. He said I should do that prior to Judas.

I was like, ‘what a great idea that is.’ I went to Rich Ward, he loved it. Bubba Dudley, months ago, he said, ‘You should have Fozzy play you to the ring.’ ‘Seriously, you think so?’ ‘You gotta do it.’ Bubba came up with the idea of me singing myself to the ring with Fozzy and Ortiz came up with the idea of me doing Freddie Mercury. Not a lot of creativity or originality from Chris Jericho on the entrance.”

Jericho wrestled Will Ospreay in a losing effort at AEW All In 2023.
