AEW Fight for the Fallen Results: In-Depth Match Analysis
The Five Labours Of Jericho: Chapter 2: “The Painmaker” Chris Jericho vs. Nick Gage in a No Rules Match
If you went into this match between Chris Jericho and Nick Gage expecting that it would not get as gruesome and bloody as usual Gage matches do, you came out of it being proved very wrong. A match out of the backyard of Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) is what main evented Fight for the Fallen Wednesday night. It was immediate that Gage utilized the pizza cutter that he’s famous for, slicing Jericho’s arm open. What nobody expected followed this, however, as for the first half of the match, Jericho and Gage fought a true wrestling match. It almost left me wondering if this match was the right idea at all. But once Gage reversed an Irish whip on the outside which would see Jericho crash and burn into the steel post, we knew it was time for war.
Gage introduced fluorescent light tubes and a pane of glass into the match for good measure. Jericho would get his head bladed open by the pizza cutter before finally turning it around. As the show came back from the commercial break, Gage went crashing through the pane of glass after Jericho would hit a top rope hurricanrana. Of course, the “Master of Deathmatches” wouldn’t be halted by this, soon getting up and getting back on offense. He’d smash Jericho across the skull with the light tube, only adding to the fun before Jericho would turn the tables once and for all. With some lovely green mist that was the likes of The Great Muta, Jericho blinded Gage, smashed him with a light tube followed by a Judas Effect for the victory.
It was everything someone could hope it would be with Gage involved. Jericho took a beating and was able to hang with Gage in his type of match.
