Jericho discusses the fall from the top of the cage at Blood & Guts

On the latest episode of his podcast Talk is Jericho, the leader of The Inner Circle revealed that he was nervous about the stunt from the Blood & Guts show where MJF pushed him from the top of the cage.

Jericho said the day before the show, he watched a stuntman take the fall but he was wearing a helmet and a vest for protection whereas he knew he was not going to wear any of that come showtime.

While the fall did hurt, Jericho said he was satisfied with the finish and noted that he nearly hit his head on the stage as he fell too far out. Jericho told MJF to specifically push him hard and the fall felt like an eternity before hitting the crash pad.

Jericho acknowledged the criticism from fans that said the fall looked fake due to AEW’s inability to better conceal the crash pad and the plywood painted as metal but he’s happy how the whole match, including the ending, came out.

The former AEW World champion also said that his wife and kids were not thrilled when they saw him falling from the top of the cage and admitted that he didn’t tell them beforehand that he was doing the stunt. With that said, Jericho added that he would never do a similar fall ever again.
