AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho took a shot at WWE while doing his first in-ring promo on AEW’s weekly television show, Dynamite.
Jericho was cutting a promo in the ring where he officially announced his new stable that includes Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Oriz. The name of the stable is the Inner Circle.
During the promo, Jericho went around where he introduced everyone and put them over. Once he got to Hager, the former Jack Swagger, he took a pause as the fans were chanting “We the people!” in reference to Hager’s gimmick in WWE.
This led to Jericho responding with, “‘We the people’ sucks and it’s dead and buried. It was a stupid idea from bad creative and all of that’s gone.”
Jericho also mentioned these stablemates have made his “list.”
Jericho would end his promo by shifting it to his next feud, which is against Cody Rhodes. This is where he stated that he would “beat the ever-living s—” out of Rhodes, which didn’t get censored.
Jericho also worked a match on Wednesday’s episode on TNT from Boston, MA at the Agganis Arena.
He did so by teaming up with Sammy Guevara to take on Dustin Rhodes and “Hangman” Adam Page, which served as the main event.
