The Aug.25 edition of AEW Dynamite promised an update from Chris Jericho on his future.
Le Champeon worked hard to earn his singles match with Maxwell Jacob Friedman last week, but the elbow he injured at Blood & Guts - and MJF’s stipulation that Jericho couldn’t use his Judas Effect finisher - led to that match ending in a submission loss. The veteran skipped his gig as a Rampage announcer last Friday so he could his thoughts together.
Tonight in Milwaukee, he shared those with the fans.
The loss, his third to MJF, is eating away at him. It’s driving him crazy. He’ll keep going after the man he calls Max no matter what, so he came to a decision. Jericho wants another shot at MJF at All Out, and if he loses, he’ll move to commentary full-time and never wrestle in AEW.

It was the right bait for Friedman. MJF is thrilled to say he tapped out Chris Jericho, but being able to say he ended him would be legendary. He gave the veteran a chance to re-consider, but I doubt Jericho is going to change his mind.
