The AEW inaugural heavyweight champion or better known as the “Le Champion”, Chris Jericho has had countless memorable matches with many superstars over the years. His matches with The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kenny Omega are some of the greatest matches that a pro-wrestling can wish to watch. 

Always brilliant with his promo and skills on the mic, Chris Jericho has had some of the greatest storylines in WWE. With that legacy behind him, you would think Jericho would wish for another showdown with the likes of Triple H, Stone Cold, or maybe the Undertaker before he bids farewell to wrestle.

After that, both of them went on to share some amazing moments in Japan, Mexico, and Smokey Mountain Wrestling. However, Storm retired in 2016 and his last match was against Matt Hardy.

Lance Storm came back to WWE as a producer, but he was released recently amid the coronavirus pandemic. Lance Storm has always shown interest in making his in-ring return and what match can be bigger for his return than the final match of his good friend, Chris Jericho.
