Chris Jericho: 'I Can Follow Any Match In The World But Let’s Give Every Match Its Due'

Chris Jericho says that it doesn't matter what match goes on last at a pay-per-view.

When speaking to Sports Illustrated, Le Champion of AEW said that it does not matter whether his championship match against Cody goes on last at AEW Full Gear. Jericho says this is a lesson he learned in August with AEW All Out. His match with Adam Page did go on last, but all anyone could talk about was the preceding Ladder Match between The Young Bucks and Lucha Bros.

"It doesn’t matter to me if we go last. I learned this with my Hangman Page match [at “All Out”]," he began. "We had a great match, but it was on after the Lucha Bros. and Young Bucks had this crazy ladder match. I can follow any match in the world, I’m not worried about that, but let’s give every match its due."

Of course, we know this match will not go on last because of the "Lights Out" stipulation in the Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega match, that match will be the final match at the show. However, the "Lights Out" stipulation means that it will also be technically stricken from the record.
