Apart from the highly acclaimed match, the fans can’t get enough of The Inner Circle’s stellar entrance into the TIAA Bank Field. MJF had a rather meek entrance with limousines, something that is often overused in sports entertainment.

Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz entered from the top of the stadium scoreboard with the Inner Circle logo in the background. MJF stared in awe and disbelief as The Inner Circle ascended from the heavens as “Judas” was played in the background.

When they finally came down, flames were blazing to the tunes of the ‘Le Champion’s theme. The rest of the Pinnacle arrived in a truck as the match started. Jericho later shared a video of their iconic entrance as he wrote, “I’d say we know how to make an ENTRANCE!!! #InnerCircle FOREVER!!”

Jericho went after MJF, Hager went after Wardlow, Guevara chose Shawn Spears as the opponent of his choice. Santana and Ortiz brawled with FTR. Ultimately, Guevara captured the win for his stable as he pinned Spears following a 630 Senton and a chair shot.

Following the match, The Inner Circle posed inside the ring as the crowd sang “Judas In My Mind” to close the show.
