Jericho had promised to shake Kingston's hand if Kingston was able to defeat him, but when that time came after the match, the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion declined. Jericho took to his Instagram account to announce the segment by writing the following:
"You might think you’re looking at pictures in a #GongMagazine from 1998, but you’re not. #EddieKingston wanted the “Real” #ChrisJericho last night at #AEWRevolution and he got that …and so much more. It was one of the stiffest battles of my career and even though I didn’t come out on the winning end, I think we both made history!!. But I’m a man of my word Eddie…and I owe you a handshake. Hopefully on #AEWDynamite this week, I can pay my debt. #Influencer #TheBigOne @allelitewrestling."
Previously announced for the show includes TNT Champion Sammy Guevara vs. Scorpio Sky and an AEW Women's World Championship number one contender's match between Thunder Rosa and Leyla Hirsch.
