The upcoming AEW World Championship match between Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes is set to include a panel of judges who will determine the winner should it end in a draw.
The announcement from AEW explains:
AEW today announced a new tiebreaker stipulation for its World Championship title match featuring defending champion Chris Jericho taking on “The American Nightmare” Cody at the FULL GEAR pay-per-view event in Baltimore on Saturday, Nov. 9.
In the event there is no winner at the end of the 60-minute time limit, a panel of three esteemed judges, who will be seated at ringside, must vote for a winner. In the event there is not a unanimous choice, the majority decision will be the winner. This will ensure that a draw will not be the outcome of this World Championship title match.
No word at this time on who the judges will be.
Other matches set to take place at Full Gear include Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks vs. Santana and Ortiz of The Inner Circle.
