Darby Allin’s AEW World title opportunity next week won’t be a regular wrestling match, it’ll be a Philadelphia Street Fight.

All Elite Wrestling released a promo from Chris Jericho on Friday in which “Le Champion” reacts to Allin’s skateboard attack at the end of Dynamite.

“I grew up on the mean streets of Winnipeg,” Jericho stated. “You wanna fight? You wanna attack? You wanna treat me like some kind of a street thug? Sounds good to me. Cause next week we’re in Philadelphia. That’s the place where my father Ted Irving used to beat the crap out of the Philadelphia Flyers each and every night when he played with the New York Rangers.”

“So you wanna come to Philly? You wanna treat me like a street thug? Well I’m gonna treat you like the little bitch that you are, Darby Allin. Cause next week, for the AEW Championship, Darby Allin vs. Chris Jericho in a Philadelphia Street Fight,” he added. 

In case you missed it, Allin earned a title shot this week by defeating Jimmy Havoc on Dynamite.
