AEW Full Gear 2022: Results, Live Updates and Analysis
Chris Jericho is still Ring of Honor Champion, defeating Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castignoli and Sammy Guevara in an outstanding Fatal Fourway match.
The opening section of the match was very fast paced, with similar back-and-forth spots to the Elite match earlier in the night. There was a fantastic spot where Claudio and Danielson both had Jericho in a Boston Crab, taking one leg each, and Guevara jumped off the top rope and caught both with a flying Cutter.
The title bout picked up a lot when Guevara stood up to Jericho, his boss in the Jericho Appreciation Society faction. Earlier in the match, Guevara hit a Spanish Fly on Danielson and Jericho followed up with a selfish Lionsault that hit both Danielson and Guevara. Minutes later, Jericho hit a Codebreaker on Claudio, leading to a pinfall that Guevara broke up. The two had a showdown that the crowd was super into, chanting "You fucked up!" at Guevara.
That led to a fantastic nearfall later in the match. Danielson and Claudio once again got Jericho in a dual submission, with Danielson putting on a Labelle Lock while Jericho was already in Claudio's Sharpshooter, and Guevara once again broke it up by blasting Claudio and Danielson with Superkicks. Guevara extended his hand to Jericho, helping Jericho get up, and they hugged in the ring.
Guevara then backstabbed Jericho, hitting him with a GTS and following up with a Shooting Star Press. Guevara got a two count that the crowd totally bought as a finish. Tremendous sequence.
Guevara then barraged Danielson with elbow strikes, only for Danielson to fight out and push Guevara into Claudio, who Gorilla Pressed Guevara and throwed him outside onto Jericho. Danielson hit a Busaiku Knee on Claudio for another great false finish.
The final few minutes of the match were excellent. Guevara popped up while Danielson and Claudio were on the turnbuckle, taking out Claudio with a Sammy Cutter and then leaping back to the turnbuckle to hit Danielson with a Spanish Fly. Danielson no sold the Spanish Fly, and put Guevara in a Labelle Lock. Jericho broke it up, saving the championship.
Jericho ended up on the outside, where Claudio threw him from barricade to barricade. Danielson tried a Hurricanrana on Claudio, but Claudio caught him in midair and planted him with a gnarly Neutralizer on the outside floor. Back in the ring, Claudio manhandled Guevara with a Giant Swing. Jericho interrupted with a jumping Judas Effect on Claudio, following it up with a second Judas Effect for the win.
