AEW Chris Jericho

Folks, it’s official: The Bride on Fox’s The Masked Singer will include Chris Jericho of AEW.

…what? However, how? How can “The Ocho” work a match on TBS with Sammy Guevara, Claudio Castagnoli, and Bryan Danielson while also appearing on Fox at 8 p.m. Eastern singing in a huge dinosaur/dragon costume with a wedding dress over top? Watch the most recent performance they gave on the programme, and then tell me that isn’t “Lionheart.”

“Bride is Jericho, baby, Bride is me (Chris Jericho),” to quote the podcast’s theme song,

What? You remain unconvinced. If there is such a thing as channel-surfing, you could have observed that The Bride actually lost and was revealed just before Nick Cannon abruptly ended the show and handed control to Will Arnett and his Lego Masters.

Yes, that’s right; contrary to the judges, who thought The Bride was Flea, Matthew McConahey, or another former WCW Champion named David Arquette, anyone who has watched a mainstream wrestling programme over the past 25 years was right to think that Chris Jericho was inside the pink monstrosity.

This is especially true considering that the programme is pre-taped and could have been shot at any time before Dynamite went on television. The mystery has been solved, the plot has come to a conclusion, and sadly, fans won’t see any more hilarious, gonzo-worthy films of a strange pink object dancing around while “The Ayatollah Of Rock’n’Rollah” screams from inside.

Oh well, at least there is this footage for fans to always remember the bizarre episode of cross-channel wrestling history.

Le Champion of AEW opens up about why he’ll forever respect an ex-WWE rival.

Jericho spent more than two decades as a member of the WWE Universe before he started dancing about in a huge pink monster costume. When “Y2J” defeated Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at Vengeance 2001, he became the first-ever Undisputed WWF Champion.

During his tenure with The Fed, “Y2J” wrestled hundreds of matches across the whole card. On his aforementioned podcast, Talk is Jericho, as reported by Ringside News, Jericho spoke about his time with Vince McMahon’s previous promotion and shared a very interesting narrative about how Paul “Triple H” Levesque gained his respect during their time together.

The finish of the match was going to be that a bunch of different things happen. I end up hitting (Steve) Austin with the Lionsault, Triple H comes in with a sledgehammer, I move, he hits Austin with the sledgehammer, I take Triple H out, (Chris) Benoit does a diving head butt, 1-2-3, we win, and this was going to be our coronation to the next level. But then Triple H tore his quad moments before going into the end of the match.

Suddenly he s gone. And when that happens, you know uh oh, something s not right here, because these are four pros amongst pros, you don t forget spots or you don t do stuff. I went onto the floor and he s just laying there, not even screaming, he s there saying like, I think I tore my quad. And I was like, What?!

I am not Triple H s biggest fan, but this guy earned my eternal respect by just how tough he was to go through that.

The actual conclusion of the match, which aired on RAW in May 2001, is not included in the aforementioned quote; despite having a torn quad, Levesque returned to the ring and eventually let his opponent put him in his finishing submission move, The Wall of Jericho, on top of the announcers’ table despite the fact that doing so put serious pressure on the very tendon he would later have surgery on.

Levesque took the L outside the ring from Jerico, rolled back into the ring to take a flying headbutt from Benoit, and then sat on the shelf until 2002 when he made a comeback on house events before making a comeback to television and eventually competing in the Royal Rumble in January.

Wow, that was a challenging interaction. It’s good to see that Jericho, an AEW star, is still willing to respect the game, especially when it comes to “The Game,” even though their present organisations are rivals and the former has no need to favour the latter if he doesn’t want to.
