Chris Jericho Puts World Title shot on The line against Wheeler Yuta. Chris Jericho was the first ever All Elite Wrestling world heavyweight champion. And he had a pretty good World Championship title reign; lasting for at least 180+ days. He lost his World Championship against Jon Moxley on AEW Revolution 2020 pay-per-view.
On this week’s dynamite show. Chris Jericho demanded his rematch against Jon Moxley for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. Surprisingly Jon Moxley also agreed to give Chris Jericho a rematch. And the match is set for the upcoming AEW Dynamite special Quake at the Lake.
This week on AEW Rampage special Fight for the Fallen, Tony Schiavone was in the ring to interview new ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli! Claudio came out to the ring with William Regal. The fans chanted “You deserve it!” at Claudio.
“Thanks to all of you because there’s been many times that I doubted myself and I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it but you guys were always there for me. It feels amazing and it’s an honor to stand in front of you as the ROH World champion.
I promise you this is just the beginning. But there’s someone else who had a tremendous night last Saturday at DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR. Please welcome fellow Blackpool Combat Club member and ROH Pure champion Wheeler Yuta!”
“You expect me to sit at this desk and listen to all of you chant ‘Yuta! Yuta! Yuta!’? And then you’re going to chant for Claudio? You know what you deserve Claudio? My boot!”
“Chris, just shut up! I know you’re going to say that sports entertainers beat pro wrestlers every time. Except for Saturday when I beat your boy Daniel Garcia to retain my Ring of Honor Pure championship. And that match has really built my confidence. I know I can beat Daniel Garcia and Chris, I’m pretty sure I can beat you too.”
“You can’t beat me ever. You want your chance to beat me? How about Jericho against Yuta this Wednesday on DYNAMITE?”
“I don’t need a match. I know I can beat you.”
“I am so sure that I can beat you, I will put up my title match versus Jon Moxley at Quake By The Lake, that if you beat me, you get the title shot. This Wednesday, Jericho versus Yuta. If you win, you get the title shot.”
“Well guys, that was easier than I thought. You’re on!”
