WATCH: MJF and His New Faction Bust Chris Jericho Open With a Brutal Attack on AEW Dynamite

Published 03/11/2021, 7:14 AM EST


MJF and Chris Jericho formed a pretty incredible team but could not become AEW Tag Team Champions at Revolution. The loss led to a War Council meeting with other members of the Inner Circle, where something shocking took place. Jericho thought it was time to introduce a new member, but MJF had something else in mind.

MJF told Jericho it might be time to kick someone out of the Inner Circle. Having already lost Sammy Guevara, Jericho opposed the idea immediately, only for Sammy himself to come out. Guevara warned Jericho about MJF and showed him a video of MJF conspiring with the rest of the Inner Circle.

However, the rest of the Inner Circle only pretended to go along with MJF, only to turn on him in the ring. With his backs against the ropes, Jericho kicked the Salt of the Earth out of the Inner Circle. MJF cried for a second, but his tone changed when he mentioned that he had formed his own group.

The lights went out, and when they came back on, Wardlow, FTR, Shawn Spears, and Tully Blanchard stood behind the Inner Circle. Dax Harwood smashed a glass bottle against Hager, while the rest took out the Inner Circle members. Meanwhile, MJF sat atop the turnbuckles and watched what unfolded.

After they completed the beat-down, Wardlow held Jericho up for MJF to bust him open with the Dynamite Diamond ring. Wardlow then powerbombed a bleeding Chris Jericho from the stage.

This was a great angle to write Jericho off for some time. Whenever he returns with the Inner Circle, the match against MJF’s new faction will be incredible.

Will Sammy Guevara rejoin the Inner Circle?

While the thought of Sammy going on a much-deserved singles run is awesome, it looks like he will rejoin the Inner Circle to take on MJF’s new faction.

There is a perfect opportunity for AEW to have either Blood and Guts or a second Stadium Stampede match at Double or Nothing. Last year, the Elite and the Inner Circle clashed in a cinematic masterpiece, but the sequel could be even better.

The Inner Circle has instantly become AEW’s babyface faction after being pitted against the top heels in AEW. Which side will emerge as the top faction in AEW after their inevitable clash?
