While it is unknown how AEW will look when March rolls around, Jericho plans to be involved in some way.

"That's three months from now, so we'll have to see where the storylines take us," Jericho said when asked on Winnipeg Sports Talk about potential plans for AEW in Winnipeg. "We just finished up with the Blackpool Combat Club. The biggest upset in pro wrestling history when Action Andretti beat me on Dynamite last week. We'll have to address that. Ricky Starks is another one that we're looking at getting involved with. There are a lot of great programs. That's the thing with me and the Jericho Appreciation Society. We always want to work with somebody new and really sink our teeth into the storyline. In mid-March, we'll probably have a lot of cool things going. We've already discussed a few ideas of what we could do that night. Maybe something with Kenny and I, Kenny and I tagging, it all depends on what the storylines are. It doesn't matter what the exact storylines are, I know it's going to be a great show."

As mentioned, Jericho lost to Action Andretti on last Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite.

Omega also lost on AEW Dynamite as part of the Best of Seven Series with The Elite (Omega & The Young Bucks) taking on Death Triangle (PAC, Rey Fenix, & Penta El Zero Miedo). The Elite are down 3-1 in the series.

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
