AEW Revolution 2023: Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Starks Result

Ricky Starks has defeated Chris Jericho again.

Starks previously defeated Jericho on the January 4 episode of AEW Dynamite; the match came about after Starks turned down Jericho’s offer to join the Jericho Appreciation Society. Starks continued to feud with Jericho and his stable, and he lost his chance to earn a rematch when he failed to win the Guevara-Garcia Gauntlet. But on the February 22 episode of AEW Dynamite, Starks tricked Jericho into signing the contract for a rematch where the JAS would be banned from ringside.


At AEW Revolution, Starks faced Jericho in a match where the members of the Jericho Appreciation Society would be banned from ringside. The former world champion and Starks went back and forth in a hard-fought battle. In the closing stages, Jericho locked in the Walls of Jericho. Starks reversed, and Sammy Guevara strolled down the ramp, seemingly determined to interfere. Action Andretti stopped him, and though Jericho hit Starks with Floyd the bat, the fam-favorite scored the decisive win with the Roshambo.
