It didn’t take AEW long to announce the opponent for Chris Jericho on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
After the announcement that the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion would be in action on the show against an unknown opponent, the promotion confirmed the competitor who will share the ring with him in a video post on Twitter overnight.
Of course, Jericho alongside his Inner Circle brothers got into a fight with Mike Tyson in addition to some of his cornermen that includes the likes of former UFC champions Vitor Belfort, Rashad Evans, and Henry Cejudo. This ended the broadcast. For more on that, click here.
In the video, which you can see below, Jericho was being escorted backstage when he walked past Colt Cabana. Jericho blamed Cabana for the incident and the promotion confirmed the match booking between them for next week.
