Jericho has released a new video teasing his appearance this Saturday night, and warns the roster and officials of AEW that they are not going to like what he has to say.
Jericho adds that he still wants his "thank you" from AEW, and that what he has to say this Saturday night is not what AEW will want to hear, but it will be what they need to hear. You can listen to more from Jericho below.
