Action Andretti Signs With AEW; Backstage Details On His Upset Win Over Chris Jericho

— Action Andretti scored an upset victory over multi-time AEW champion Chris Jericho yesterday on Dynamite and immediately after, AEW CEO Tony Khan announced that Andretti was officially part of his promotion having signed him to a contract. On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer described how the upset victory came together, noting that it was almost all Chris Jericho’s idea.

— According to Meltzer, the match and outcome was decided about two months ago when Jericho saw Andretti’s match against QT Marshall and concluded that Andretti was going to be a star and that he was going to be the one to make him one. Of course, the match couldn’t happen right away as Jericho had his own storylines to get through as well as a match against Claudio Castagnoli as the reigning ROH champion. However, yesterday’s Dynamite show was circled as when this upset was going to happen way back when Jericho first saw Andretti in action.
