Chris Jericho to debut The Judas Effect finisher at AEW Double or Nothing


Chris Jericho has revealed that he will debut a new finisher when he wrestles for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) for the first time at Double or Nothing.

Jericho will go up against Kenny Omega at AEW Double or Nothing on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In preparation for the match, Y2J has been MMA training at Dave Batista's gym in Tampa. It's here that he has developed a new finisher for the match.

On his Instagram account, Jericho showed off his new finisher, The Judas Effect, and explained what it means for Omega at Double or Nothing next week.

He said: "I've been doing a lot of intense MMA training at Dave Batista's gym here in Tampa.

"My trainer, Josh Rafferty, and I were doing some drills just a few days ago and I did a spinning elbow basically to the face, and I thought 'This is going to be the new finish.'

"The Judas Effect is something I'm going to debut in AEW, something that's going to be exclusive to AEW and continue the constant evolving of Chris Jericho.

"If I connect with this move, I don't think it's going to go well for Kenny or any other opponent that I face in AEW from this moment forward. So, beware of The Judas Effect cuz it's gonna knock you the f--- out."

With the debut of a new finisher, this Jericho vs Omega match is starting to look like it will be an exciting third clash between the two wrestlers.

Omega and Jericho first fought against each other back in January 2018 in a No Disqualification match at Wrestle Kingdom 12 for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship. Omega won on that occasion.


Omega won the second match between the two as well, except this one was a three-man tag team match on the Jericho Cruise in October last year.

Kenny, Cody, and Marty Scurll of Bullet Club defeated Jericho and The Young Bucks in that match so it will be interesting to see if Y2J finally gets a win over Omega at Double or Nothing using his new finisher.
