On this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, MJF sat down with other members of The Pinnacle. He introduced them to a stylist and said they were going to revamp the locker room on their way. They wanted to get rid of everything related to The Inner Circle.

Explaining further about what he was going to change, MJF opened the restroom and was stunned. He saw Chris Jericho waiting in the restroom alongside Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz. He immediately shut the door and let others know that they all have to leave.

The ‘Salt of the Earth’ opened the locker room door to leave, only to find Jake Hager standing like a wall outside. He took down MJF with a brutal right hand, as the rest of the Inner Circle members barged into the room and attacked The Pinnacle.

The war has just begun

The brawl between the two factions spilled out to the backstage area. But the Inner Circle maintained their upper hand. The ‘Spanish God‘ took out Shawn Spears with a GTS, while Jake Hager chokeslammed Wardlow through the trainer’s table!

Santana and Ortiz focused on laying FTR to waste. They gave Cash Wheeler an ice bath. Not just that, but Santana used a broken chair leg to stab Dax Harwood’s head! Note: Dax had to get stitched afterward.

Le Champion‘ Chris Jericho took control of MJF and took him into the restroom. He put MJF’s head inside the toilet and flushed it! He told MJF that the worst was yet to come and brought him back inside the locker room.

Jericho smashed MJF’s head through a cooler. He poured ‘A Little Bit of the Bubbly’ and said, “This is our dressing room b**ch.”

The war between the Inner Circle and The Pinnacle is far from over. In fact, this is just the beginning. We are predicting it now that this feud will culminate inside the grueling WarGames structure aka Blood and Guts Match in AEW!
