Chris Jericho Becomes Inaugural AEW World Heavyweight Champion At All Out 


The first AEW World Champion has been crowned.

The inaugural AEW World Heavyweight Champion has been crowned and that’s Chris Jericho.

Jericho beat Hangman Page to become the first champion under the All Elite Wrestling banner in the headliner of the All Out event.

This match was set up shortly after the first AEW pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing. At this show, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart made a surprise appearance to present the title for the first time for fans to see.

Earlier in the night at Double or Nothing, Page drew the Joker card in the Casino Battle Royale allowing him to enter at lucky number 21 where he would win the contest.

In the headliner of that same show, Jericho was victorious over Kenny Omega in a classic match. 

AEW did an angle to further promote this match at the AEW Fight for the Fallen event in Jacksonville, Florida. It happened when Jericho attacked Page after his match against Kip Sabian.

Jericho came out of nowhere while wearing a Dark Order creeper mask to attack Page with the Codebreaker then took off his mask and rained down kicks/punches to his next opponent.
