Omega also revealed that Jim Ross and Excalibur will be joined on the commentary team for the show on June 29, by Alex Mendez, who is best known for his work as a Titan Games commentator on NBC.
The latest episode of Being The Elite confirmed that before his AEW World Championship match at All Out with Chris Jericho, Adam “Hangman” Page will be taking on Jungle Boy, MJF and British wrestling legend, Jimmy Havoc in a fatal-four way match on the show.
Fans were elated that the AEW show will be streamed for free on B/R Live. However, one of AEW’s stars is clearly not as fond of the idea as others.
Chris Jericho commented on Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks’ “foolish decision” to have the show available to watch for free. He then said he is “pulling out of the event” as a form of protest to what he regarded as “shameless pandering”.
In protest of @KennyOmegamanX, @CodyRhodes, @NickJacksonYB & @MattJackson13’s foolish decision to give the #FyterFest live stream away to @AEWrestling fans for free, I am pulling out of the event. I refuse to be associated w such shameless pandering.

Chris Jericho could just be playing the role of the heel, as he so often does on social media, and it is totally plausible that he will be booked in a match in advance of the show.
