Scorpio Sky Talks Losing His Parents In The Same Year, Facing Chris Jericho For AEW World Title


AEW tag champion and SCU member Scorpio Sky spoke with Alex Marvez ahead of his world title showdown with Chris Jericho on tonight's Dynamite from Chicago. Sky begins by referencing the night Jericho won the gold at ALL OUT, and how he told Sky backstage that he would never get a world title matchup.

When Chris Jericho said those words, "Scorpio Sky you will never get a shot at this title," it caught me off guard. He's a superstar. He's one of...if not the greatest...of all time, and he spoke my name. I didn't even know Chris Jericho knew who Scorpio Sky was. It didn't discourage me. It motivated me. It lit a fire under me, and it is no coincidence that months later I am sitting here as one-half of the world tag team champions because of those words that you spoke.

Sky would later recall his 15-year journey in the pro-wrestling business, including losing both of his parents when he was at his lowest, and how he will use that life-experience to become the brand's top champion.

It's been a 15 year roller-coaster. Extreme highs. Extreme lows. It's been hell at times to be perfectly honest with you. People telling me 'you're too this or you're too that. You're just flat out not good enough Sky.' Worst of all...my mother and father dying in the same year when I was at my lowest. But I can right all those wrongs tonight. I can use all of it as motivation. I can look at everyone that said I wasn't good enough, that said no, that said never, and I can say 'YES! Scorpio Sky is good enough,' and with my mother and father watching from the heavens above...I can go in that ring and I can walk out a world champion. Chris Jericho might be the GOAT, but tonight is my night.
