Jericho's role at Fight for the Fallen is unclear, with three matches on the card so far.

AEW revealed in March it would be holding Fight for the Fallen in Jacksonville, the site of a shooting at a video game tournament last August that left two people dead and 10 injured. A portion of the event gate will be donated to the victims of gun violence.

The announcement about Jericho does come shortly after The Wrap's Tony Maglio reported WWE will stream Evolve Wrestling's 10th anniversary show on WWE Network the same day. Both companies will be vying for attention among pro wrestling fans.

Even if he's not wrestling, Jericho should help bring a few more eyeballs to Fight for the Fallen. It's probably safe to assume whatever he's doing will be geared toward his AEW title match against Adam Page at All Out in August.
