In the first challenge in order for Chris Jericho to earn a rematch against MJF, the former AEW World Champion will have to face Shawn Spears during next Wednesday's second night of Fyter Fest in Garland, Texas.

However, the stipulation is that Spears can use a chair during the match while Jericho can't. 

MJF delivered the message with Spears as Jericho was cutting a promo on Wednesday's first night of Fyter Fest. The two roughed up Jericho, hitting him with a chair in his throat and his injured arm.

In a nod to Greek mythology, Jericho must survive five "labours" to get the MJF rematch he wants.

Next week's show will also feature Orange Cassidy vs. The Blade. The two have been involved in a multi-week angle that also included Kris Statlander and The Bunny.

For the second straight week, IWGP U.S. Champion Jon Moxley will defend the U.S. title, taking on Lance Archer in a Texas death match. The two squared off in the same match at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14 in January 2020 that saw the kickoff of Moxley's reign as champion.

The match joins the previously announced Women's title match between champion Britt Baker vs. Nyla Rose.
