Renee Paquette interviewed FTW Champion “The Learning Tree”
Chris Jericho backstage!

Jericho was accompanied by Big Bill and “The Bounty Hunter”
Bryan Keith. Renee wondered why Jericho wasn’t at the
announcers’ desk for Rampage tonight.

Jericho said last week he was attacked so he’s decided to
step down from his role as commentator on Rampage. Jericho
said even though he’s stepping down, he’ll have more TV time
to devote to Collision and Dynamite each week.

Jericho no longer felt safe at the desk.

Avalon in a bear hug, rag dolled Avalon, and the ref stopped
the match right away! The referee awarded the decision to
Satnam in a decisive victory.

wrenched on Jordan’s arm. Kyle clobbered Jordan with ground
and pound palm strikes. Kyle applied an arm bar and Jordan
tapped out immediately!

“Kyle has plenty of momentum heading into Collision tomorrow
night,” said Excalibur.

Will Ospreay for the AEW International Championship,”
replied Tony Schiavone.
