Chris Jericho has been announced for tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS premiere.
“TONIGHT for the first time since 1999, @IAmJericho will be on TBS, LIVE on the first #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork and the first #AEWDynamite of 2022! What will Jericho have to say? Tune in at 8/7c to find out!,” AEW tweeted.
Jericho made his AEW return on last week’s New Year’s Smash edition of Dynamite, saving Santana from a beatdown by 2point0 and Daniel Garcia. That came after Garcia and 2point0 defeated Santana, Ortiz and Eddie Kingston. Jericho hit the ring with a baseball bat and fought off the heels, reuniting with Santana and Ortiz. Kingston was frustrated by the return, and had a heated exchange with Jericho until Santana and Ortiz got in between them.
Jericho had been away from AEW for a few weeks while touring the UK with Fozzy. He has not wrestled since The Inner Circle defeated American Top Team, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky in a 10-man Street Fight at AEW Full Gear on November 13.
