The new AEW stable lead by Chris Jericho now has a name after this week’s episode of Dynamite.
Jericho, Jake Hager aka Jack Swagger, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz joined together for an in-ring promo in which the AEW champ explained who his team is and what they’re all about.
He described Sammy Guevara as a Mexican heartthrob. Santana and Ortiz, Jericho said, are dirtier and nastier than they’ve ever been and he personally recruited them to AEW. Jake Hager was described as the toughest, most terrifying, crazy MMA fighter in the world.
“We the people sucks and it’s dead and buried,” he added while the crowd chanted during Hager’s introduction. ” It was a stupid idea from bad creative and all of that is gone.”
Jericho then revealed the name of his group is “The Inner Circle.”
