American wrestler and WWE champion Chris Jericho has become the first-ever All Elite Wrestling champion by beating Hangman Adam Page in the main event of AEW's All Out at the Sears Centre in Chicago.

In the inaugral edition of AEW World Champion, Jericho brought the hard-hitting clash to an end by hitting 28-year-old Page with his Judas Effect finisher. 

Following the win, 48-year-old Jericho could be seen celebrating in the ring with his new belt before he was attended by medical staff to treat his bloody face, the New York Post reported. 

However, Jericho was not happy with the celebration and also roasted people at the backstage for the same. He asked the people for a thank you before heading towards the locker room.
