The forbidden portal remains shut … as Hiroshi Tanahashi was unable to defeat Chris Jericho on Sunday at Wrestle Kingdom 14.
During his entrance for the match, Jericho revealed the AEW World Championship under his shirt and jacket once he got into the ring. As you’ll recall, Jericho agreed to give Tanahashi a shot at the AEW World Championship if he could defeat him.
The hard-hitting match saw both competitors hit their signature moves on each other – and Tanahashi even hit the Codebreaker on the AEW World Champ – but Jericho earned the victory after making “The Ace of New Japan” tap out with the Liontamer.
While AEW was mentioned on commentary, it’s unclear if there will be any further relationship between the two companies at this time.
