Bengaluru, October 27: Veteran AEW Superstar Chris Jericho is hell-bent on retaining the legacy of the ROH World Championship and he's constantly proved that on AEW programme by putting the belt on the line against former world champions.
Next week on AEW Dynamite, 'The Ocho' will once again defend his title, this time in an Open Challenge which any of the former ROH Champions could answer.
This match was set up after Chris Jericho and Daniel Garcia teamed up against Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta on Dynamite, last night and came up short.
After the match, Jericho invited any of the former ROH Champions during a backstage interview with Tony Schiavone for next week's Dynamite. The entire Jericho Appreciation Society members also expressed their beef with any former titleholders from ROH.
On the October 18 episode of Dynamite, Jericho successfully defended his ROH World Championship against former champion Dalton Castle. Prior to that, the former WWE Champion also had successful title defenses against two former ROH World Champions, Bryan Danielson and Bandido.
