On next week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho will face his former WCW colleague Juventud Guerrera for the first time in 22 years.
Lucha Libre legend Juventud Guerrera will appear on TNT for the first time in 20 years and make his All Elite Wrestling debut when he goes one-on-one with his former WCW colleague Chris Jericho on next week’s episode of Dynamite.
Guerrera’s imminent arrival was announced by MJF following the main event of this week’s Fight For The Fallen edition of AEW’s flagship show.
Chris Jericho had just defeated Nick Gage in the second of five matches that he must win in order to be granted a grudge match against his bitter enemy/former protege, MJF. In what is being referred to as “The Labours Of Jericho,” MJF chooses all of Jericho’s opponents and decides the stipulation of each match. Last week, Jericho defeated “The Chairman” Shawn Spears in a match in which Spears could legally use a steel chair, but Jericho could not.
At the end of this week’s Dynamite, Jericho was sat in the ring drenched his own blood having just won a deathmatch against a man who specializes in them. After the bell, an irate MJF, who had been on commentary throughout the match, leaped from his seat, grabbed a microphone, and revealed next week’s stipulation: to win the match, Jericho must hit his final move off of the top rope.
MJF then reminded Jericho of a moment the two men shared while exchanging insults during a 2019 edition of Dynamite. During that encounter, Jericho implied that MJF was conceived after his parents watched Jericho beat up Juventud Guerrera on WCW Nitro. Guerrera was then announced as Jericho’s opponent next week.
Juventud Guerrera (real name, Eduardo Aníbal González Hernández) began his wrestling career in 1992 in his native Mexico. Guererra made his WCW debut on August 26, 1996 edition of Monday Nitro, and became the promotion’s Cruiserweight Champion soon after.
Chris Jericho last wrestled Juventud Guerrera shared a ring together 28 times during their time in WCW. They last faced each other on the February 18, 1999, edition of WCW Thunder.
