AEW World Champion Chris Jericho may have suffered at least one injury during his match with Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14 on Sunday.
Jericho spoke with The Wrestling Observer’s Jim Valley after the show and said that he is banged up and he will get checked out when he returns to the United States.
Valley said, “Jericho came in and said that his jaw was dislocated.” He added, “He also said that his knee was swollen and he’s going to get it looked at. He thought that some of the dragon screws did that, according to Jericho.”
You never know for sure when Jericho is working but if he is indeed injured then it would be a horrible time for him since it looks like he will be facing Jon Moxley at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view on February 29. Hopefully, the knee issue turns out to be something minor.
Valley also noted that Tanahashi limped away from the press room. It’s likely that he was just selling.
