Chris Jericho Reacts To Being Put In A Tough Spot At AEW Full Gear 2023, More



Swerve Strickland has been on a role in All Elite Wrestling in recent months, and Tommy Dreamer believes an AEW World Title reign could be coming soon.

Speaking on a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Dreamer lavished praise on the former Isaiah “Swerve” Scott in WWE.

The Impact Wrestling star said, “I think another thing coming out of this, which I think is happening due to injury, [is that] Swerve Strickland’s a babyface. Coming out of this whole tournament and I think going into 2024, [it] could be Swerve’s time. If MJF is hurt like people say he is hurt, it may be time to take off the title, give it to [Samoa] Joe, then you have Joe and Swerve.”

As we previously reported here on eWn, MJF is dealing with a labrum tear in his left shoulder. Despite this, he will still be defending his AEW World Championship against Samoa Joe at the upcoming AEW Worlds End 2023 pay-per-view event.

Chris Jericho teamed up with Kenny Omega to face off against The Young Bucks at last month’s AEW Full Gear 2023 pay-per-view event, and the bout was positioned in a tough spot as it followed the brutal Swerve Strickland vs. Hangman Page Texas Deathmatch.

Speaking on the latest episode of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, the “Wizard” opined on having to follow the Strickland/Page match and how they were able to keep the crowd entertained.

Jericho said, “How do you follow that?. Well you follow it with a good story, and you build it to a point where Kenny Omega gets me down on the ropes, and then Nick Jackson’s down on the ropes, then he has to decide who he’s going to V-Trigger? He has to definitively make this choice if he’s going to stick with the Elite [or] if he’s going to go with the Golden Jets.”

He continued, “And he points at me like he’s going to take me out, but it was just a ruse, as he ends up nailing Nick Jackson in the face. I think that part of the match got one of the biggest pops of the night. It just goes to show you can drink blood to get a pop, or you could just point a finger with a good story and get a pop. So once again, I think we did a really good job of that.”
