The Inner Circle were out for their celebration after winning the 2nd Stadium Stampede Match in AEW history against The Pinnacle. Jericho quickly highlighted Sammy Guevara’s heroics for saving the day for the Inner Circle.

However, The Inner Circle isn’t done with The Pinnacle yet. Each member of The Inner Circle cut a short promo. In fact, Jake Hager even put out a challenge to Wardlow for a MMA Cage Fight in two weeks on AEW Dynamite.

Jericho made it clear he wouldn’t stop until ruins the career and life of MJF. But during the end, ‘Le Champion‘ subtly announced to the world that AEW is the greatest wrestling promotion ever. And in a way, that even non believers would think.

Jericho said, “MJF calls me a GOAT – Greatest of All Time. I don’t know if I believe that. But I believe this – when I think of MJF saying what he said, if I am as good as he thinks I’m. If I’m as good as I need to be to continue to build AEW into the greatest wrestling company in the world today. Which it is! I must, I will. I need and I’m going to beat MJF.”

Honestly speaking, there’s no doubt AEW has shown immense promise since its debut as a full-fledged wrestling promotion. But there are still a lot of boxes to be ticked to truly call it as the greatest.

One thing is for sure; it is the only wrestling promotion in the world today that’s giving WWE direct competition, a legit competition since the Monday Night Wars with WCW. And with Chris Jericho leading the front, it could definitely be the greatest in the years to come.
