A current AEW star has teased a shock move to WWE to get revenge on a former rival.

Heading into late 2016 Chris Jericho struck up a partnership with Kevin Owens. As Jericho added more and more stars to his infamous list, his bond with Owens became stronger.

However, as is tradition in wrestling, their relationship wasn’t to last. As cracks began to slowly appear in the union, Jericho hosted the ‘Festival of Friendship’ on the February 13th 2017 episode of Monday Night Raw. Although the event was designed as a celebration of the bond between the two stars, things quickly fell apart.

After Owens received gift after gift, he revealed that he had something for Jericho, but everything wasn’t as it seemed. Owens presented Jericho with a list, but it only had Jericho’s name on it. As the heartbreak dawned on Y2J, he was attacked by his best friend.

The segment received great acclaim and has gone on to become one of the most fondly remembered moments in Monday Night Raw history.

On the fifth anniversary of the episode, Jericho took to social media to remind his former rival that he hasn’t forgotten the betrayal.

“I haven’t forgotten Owens….you never know when you’ll see me again.”

The ensuring rivalry between the two Superstars led to a match between the pair at WrestleMania 33. On the night it was Owens who emerged victorious, with Jericho leaving the company a year later.
