Chris Jericho will defend AEW World Championship next week on Dynamite


Chris Jericho, with Jake Hager, closed out the first hour of this week's AEW Dynamite withe a major announcement.

Jericho said next week in Chicago, he will finally get the thank you that he deserves from AEW executives and the higher-ups at Time Warner. Jericho said that he was very sorry that the celebration will be in Chicago and not Indianapolis. He said his celebration next week will have games, prizes, and aquarium and maybe some clowns.

Just as he was about to wrap up, SCU walked out to the ring. Scorpio Sky pointed out that he was the one who gave Jericho his first AEW loss on last week's show.

After some back-and-forth, Jericho said he wanted Sky one-on-one in Chicago and so the match was made. Next week it will be Scorpio Sky challenging Jericho for the AEW World Championship on Dynamite in Chicago.

Sky said he's been waiting for more than 15 years for this opportunity and maybe next week, he will beat Jericho for the AEW Title and he might turn "Le Champion" into "Le Bitch." A brawl broke out with other Inner Circle members jumping in to help Jericho and Jericho took out Sky with the Judas Effect. During the closing seconds of the brawl, Hager and Luchasaurus stood face-to-face and Hager backed off so it looks like they will have a match in the near future.
