Chris Jericho is basking in the glory of the first-ever Mimosa Mayhem Match being a success.
Last night at AEW All Out, Chris Jericho lost to Orange Cassidy and took a bath in a vat of mimosa. Then, he almost immediately went into a Saturday Special Q&A and discussed the bout in detail.
“I think that after taking two of Orange's Orange Punches, I didn't want to just be like floundering around in the drink, so to speak,” said Chris about the finish of the match. “So I wasn't savoring it. It was more like accepting the reality that I had lost and also selling his finish. I'm really proud of the Mimosa Mayhem Match. I thought it went as great as it possibly could have, maybe even better. Because when I had the idea, I knew that it would seem weird in concept and I knew that when I first mentioned it that people would go, 'What? That doesn't make any sense.' But, I also knew that after the first one, everybody would want to do it because it's all about the drama.”
He continued, “So I thought we had a lot of great false finishes and it's all about using the gimmick. Like I said so I hope you guys enjoyed it. If you haven't seen it, I think you'll enjoy it. Once again how many times do you have a chance to experience something for the first time in wrestling.”
Chris Jericho would later confirm. that this was the end of the rivalry with Orange Cassidy and reveal that he already knows who he is working with next.
“Actually, I know exactly who I'm going to be kind of feuding with next. Who my next story is with because once again, it's all about the stories. So you'll find out on Wednesday. That's kind of the blow-off of Jericho and Orange for now and I'm sure we can always come back to it at some point.”
