Chris Jericho spoke with Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports about a wide range of topics including the Falls Count Anywhere Tag Team Street Fight that aired on the May 6th episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT.
This contest saw Jericho team up with Sammy Guevara against Kenny Omega and Matt Hardy. It was a wild match that started in Daily’s Place and into the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium.
This match was brought up while Jericho was talking about the different environment that the promotion is in with no fans due to the coronavirus outbreak. Jericho thinks it’s a cool time to do matches that a promotion would usually not do with fans in attendance.
“We did a street fight on Dynamite where we fought throughout the whole concourse. Why? Because it was there. I got asked, ‘How long did it take you to plan it?’ Two hours.
We got to the building, walked around, ‘Oh, there’s an ice machine. Can someone fit in that, hey Matt, can you fit in this?’ Kenny was like ‘is there golf carts?’ There were golf carts over there, a scissors lift here, we’re just finding this stuff to use. This is the only time where we’re going to be able to have this type of match.”
Jericho noted that you take advantage of what’s there and use it to the best of your ability. He noted how he had a blast putting the match together and being part of it.
He recalled some of the more interesting spots including being hit with an ice bag by Hardy, Omega being thrown in an ATM machine only to have Sammy take money out of it, and the famous golf cart run and hit.
Jericho noted how other things weren’t planned out ahead of time. He said it was a lot of fun but also alluding to the PPV match at Double or Nothing.
Jericho also talked about professional wrestling, rock n’ roll, and KISS. You can listen to the full interview here (Jericho’s comments about the match can be found around the 7:50 mark).
