Even though Jericho emerged victorious, it’s been pointed out that the entire match was a series of botches. Fans can overlook one or two since some wrestling manoeuvres are complicated, but it becomes noticeable when one match has too many botches.

Jericho and Guerrera had to put up a convincing match since it followed the brutal fight between Nick Gage and Jericho’s deathmatch. Unfortunately, Guerrera’s AEW debut did not have the impact everyone expected.

The stipulation of this match was that Jericho can only win this with a top rope move. Therefore, throughout the match he tried several top rope moves. One time, he couldn’t land properly and the botch was extremely evident.

Following this match, some fans suggested he should consider retirement or stop trying to be the young wrestler he used to be.

Chris Jericho needs to go through two more matches

The Five Labours of Jericho means he needs to go through five rounds of matches against different opponents. Only after he wins all five matches with the stipulation given will he be able to get his hands on MJF.

The rivalry between MJF and Jericho has reached its height in AEW. The company had to keep it interesting, and therefore, introduced the Five Labours of Jericho.

His second opponent was Nick Gage in a deathmatch. For this match, Gage ensured that AEW was serious about a deathmatch. He did not want to be a part of a deathmatch which used fake glass or fake anything.

Now, Gage has been a part of deathmatches before, but not Jericho. However, the way he conducted the match was appreciable. Even Gage revealed that Jericho is a tough pro-wrestler.

Considering this verdict from Gage, it’s possible the botched match against Juventud Guerrera was a one time scenario. If his fourth match has similar botches, it’s time for him to reconsider how he uses his body in the ring.
