Chris Jericho Vs. Will Ospreay Official For AEW All In

Following a brutal attack earlier in the night, Chris Jericho made it official while speaking to Renee Young: he will face Will Ospreay one-on-one at AEW All In on August 27. Jericho pointed out that he was initially supposed to wrestle Ospreay sooner, in the Tokyo Dome, but the match had to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ospreay, at Wembley Stadium – your home turf – you want a piece of Chris Jericho?” Jericho said. “How about one of the greatest of all time versus one of the greatest [of] all time? Jericho versus Ospreay at All In. … I’m gonna make you bleed and drink your blood in the middle of the stadium, Ospreay. You have never faced anybody with the experience and international presence of Chris Jericho.”

Jericho then warned Ospreay that he planned to work his way inside the NJPW star’s head, aiming to embarrass him in front of his friends and family in London. Ospreay had the advantage over Jericho tonight, however, attacking him by surprise while Jericho dealt with Don Callis. Callis had been trying to recruit Jericho into his new group for weeks, and Jericho surprisingly accepted his offer tonight. However, it was revealed that Callis never expected Jericho to accept, and he had already arranged a betrayal, leading to Ospreay’s assault on the veteran.

With the show now less than two weeks away, expect to see a short, furious build to All In. Other matches announced on tonight’s AEW Dynamite include the Blackpool Combat Club vs. Eddie Kingston, Best Friends, and the Lucha Brothers in a Stadium Stampede match, as well as Kenny Omega, “Hangman” Adam Page, and Kota Ibushi, taking on Konosuke Takeshita, “Switchblade” Jay White, and Juice Robinson.
