It has been speculated that the former WWE star will retire from in-ring competition soon, with fans arguing that the Labors of Jericho felt like his final tour. Jericho currently commentates for AEW Rampage, alongside Excalibur, Taz and Mark Henry.
Ric Flair has revealed he was a fan of last night’s main event, praising MJF and Jericho for “making the business better for everyone“.
Also on last night’s show, 2.0 (formerly Ever-Rise) were defeated by the team of Darby Allin and Sting. Jericho recently confirmed that 2.0 have signed with AEW.
