Chris Jericho has had a long career in wrestling that spans over three decades. In this time, he has wrestled hundreds of matches against dozens of opponents in a number of promotions.
During the latest episode of his Saturday Night Special live stream on YouTube a fan asked Jericho about the favorite matches of his career and the former World Champion answered the question revealing his favourite matches in different promotion.
The former AEW Champion first revealed his favorite match in WWE and Chris Jericho said that his favorite match in the company was the No Mercy bout against Shawn Michaels in 2008 because of its story:
In WWE, my favorite is still probably still Jericho versus Shawn [Michaels] for the world title in the ladder match. Was it 2009, maybe? 2008-2009. And the reason why is because, I’ve said it before, Shawn versus Jericho, the famous feud that went basically seven or eight months was just supposed to be a one night thing and because Shawn and I had nothing else to do, as far as nobody else to work with, we thought why don’t we just try and make this longer and see how long we can have it go and that’s what we did and we turned it into, from this one night only feud, just a throwaway thing, to the hottest angle probably ever.
The former WWE star then also revealed his favorite match in NJPW and the bout he has liked the most in his AEW career so far:
New Japan, I love my match with Tanahashi. As great as the match with Kenny was, the Tanahashi one just blew me away. In AEW, probably the match I had with Moxley where he won the title from me, back in February, back before the world went crazy and I just really like that match. I just like the whole storyline behind it.
