The match made history in another way as Aubrey Edwards became the first-ever female official to referee a World Heavyweight Championship match on pay-per-view.

This marks Chris Jericho's 7th World Championship Victory as he held the WWE Undisputed Championship once, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship three times, and a version of the WCW Championship twice in WWE before winning the All Elite Wrestling World Heavyweight Championship tonight.

Chris Jericho can now turn his attention to the next pay-per-view, Full Gear, which was announced tonight and will take place on November 9th from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. TNT Television starts for AEW on Wednesday, October 2, 2019.
