Chris Jericho saves his wrestling career and finally defeats Maxwell Jacob Friedman.
It was a long and winding road for the frontman of Fozzy leading up to AEW All Out 2021 but he has finally defeated Maxwell Jacob Friedman and gotten the monkey off of his back.
For one second, it appeared as though Maxwell Jacob Friedman had won the match until a referee came out to clarify that Chris Jericho had his foot on the rope before the count of three.
It wasn't easy, but this time with the ability to use his trusted Liontamer and his theme song in full effect, and a little bit of luck and experience, Chris Jericho was able to defeat Maxwell Jacob Friedman, who is only suffering his second loss ever in singles competition, and reserved the ability to continue to wrestle in AEW.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman has only lost at the All Out event, losing last year to Jon Moxley and now to Chris Jericho.
