Chris Jericho On How Tony Khan Structures AEW Pay-Per-View Events

First ever AEW World Champion Chris Jericho has given insight into how Tony Khan structures pay-per-view events.


On a recent edition of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Chris Jericho discussed his and Kenny Omega’s Full Gear match with The Young Bucks and Tony Khan’s structuring. He said,


“Any time you have a little bit of a street fight type thing, [it’s like] ‘Should you put a buffer match after it?’ And I was like ‘Tony likes to structure his cards with part 1, part 2, part 3.’ And part 3 is always match 7, 8, and 9, let’s say. And I don’t have a problem going on after that match. Somebody has to. You could’ve put on a nonsensical, nothing match, but to me, this is the way the card is structured. You want three exciting matches, and I thought if anybody could follow the street fight, we could. We did. It took a bit to get the crowd into it, but I was very happy with how we did it.”


Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega defeated the Young Bucks, earning a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Champions. Had the Young Bucks won, Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega would have had to disband as a team.
