Chris Jericho misspoke while on commentary for AEW Rampage this past Friday night on TNT.
The leader of the Jericho Appreciation Society took to social media to apologize for the error soon after the show wrapped up.
The ultimate Sports Entertainer commented during the broadcast that CM Punk was relinquishing the title due to injury.
"I misspoke," Jericho wrote. "He’s not relinquishing the title."
Jericho added, "He needs to get surgery which puts him on the shelf indefinitely."
