When Urban Meyer joined the Jacksonville Jaguars, fans knew it was only a matter of time before he made a cameo on All Elite Wrestling. He did just that Sunday for the wrestling league’s pay-per-view entitled “Double or Nothing” in the show’s Stadium Stampede matchup between The Inner Circle (led by Chris Jericho) and The Pinnacle (led by MJF).
In a nutshell, the goal for such a match is to utilize the whole venue (or most of it) and fall count anywhere. The means the fight could go anywhere in TIAA Bank Field (pools, field, kitchen, Daily’s Place, coaches offices, etc.) and could be ended there, too.
Somehow, the circumstance led to MJF and Jericho getting caught up in a 1-on-1 situation that ended up in Meyer’s office as he and Charlie Strong were going over some things. While Jericho gained the upper hand, Strong and Meyer gave him some help (giving him some handy weapons) and eventually witnesses the wrestling legend toss his rival out of the office’s back door.
Jericho proceeded through the office and told both coaches to have a great season. Watching it all in astonishment, Meyer’s response was simply ‘Holy s—.’
Afterward, Jericho spoke on the experience and said he thoroughly enjoyed the scene and that Meyer and strong did a great job.
“He was super awesome,” Jericho said Sunday. “And the best part was when we said, ‘do you mind saying holy s–t?’ And I thought he’d say no, he was like ‘yeah I’ll say it.’ I was like that’s great. … Like a great action move there’s a little levity. The Urban Meyer scene was great. We played it straight so it’s not ha-ha slap-stick comedy, and he was one of the highlights for sure. It was a lot of fun.”
It’s been a crazy start to the season for Meyer in his first months in the NFL and the Jags have certainly had their share of moments in the headlines. Then again, it just wouldn’t feel right for fans to witness a regular offseason and they are clearly used to it at this point.
