In the semi-main event of AEW Full Gear, MJF and Chris Jericho faced off. The stipulation of this match was that MJF would join The Inner Circle if he was able to win the match.
For his entrance, MJF had a robe that lit up and he did Jericho’s old pose that he used to do in WWE. Jericho got an overwhelming babyface reaction from the 1,000+ fans in attendance.
Jericho gt most of the offense in the first few minutes but he hurt his right elbow on the ring post at ringside and that was an issue throughout the match. That is the same elbow he uses for the Judas Effect finisher.
Jericho looked good when he hit a double sledgehammer off the top, a lionsault and a hurricanrana off the top rope. Later on he went for a superplex off the top but MJF countered it and dropped Jericho in the ring and he continued to work on the bad arm.
Moments later, Jericho countered the Salt of the Earth with the Walls of Jericho but MJF got to the bottom rope. At one point, MJF went for a Lionsault but Jericho countered into the Lionsalt. Jericho also tried the Judas Effect but MJF countered into an armbar on the bad arm but Jericho got his hand on the bottom rope. Wardlow ran out to give MJF the Dynamite Diamond Ring. Ref Aubrey was distracted and Jericho was going to use a bat but he was caught by the ref. MJF then rolled up Jericho for the win.
After the match, Jericho and MJF shook hands and hugged. Jericho welcomed him and Wardlow to The Inner Circle.
