Inaugural AEW World Champion crowned at All Out


Chris Jericho is the first World Champion in AEW history.

Jericho defeated Hangman Page in the main event of All Out to become the inaugural AEW World Champion. Jericho pinned Page after hitting his Judas Effect elbow strike.

Jericho and Page were set up as the two wrestlers who would be vying for the title through their wins at Double or Nothing. Jericho defeated Omega in the main event of that pay-per-view, while Page won the Casino Battle Royale on its pre-show.

All Out was the promotion's final show before AEW on TNT debuts on Wednesday, October 2. Jericho and two mystery partners facing Omega & The Young Bucks in a six-man tag match has been announced for the episode. It's taking place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

Jericho's first title defense is set for week three of AEW TV, which is being held at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, October 16.
