Chris Jericho and The Inner Circle are crashing servers and blowing peoples minds all at once following the entertaining sophomore edition of AEW Dynamite.
Wednesday night's show from Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts featured Chris Jericho naming his new faction. The group consists of himself, Bellator MMA Heavyweight contender and former WWE Superstar Jake Hager (a.k.a. Jack Swagger), up-and-coming talent Sammy Guevara and the former IMPACT Wrestling Tag-Team Champions LAX (Santana & Ortiz).
The AEW World's Heavyweight Champion announced on this week's show that his group shall now be referred to as "The Inner Circle."
Jericho made the announcement during an epic promo that caused a frenzy of attention and buzz on social media when he took a dig at WWE's creative by shutting down chants of "We The People" during AEW Dynamite.
The promo caused such an uproar on the internet that it immediately crashed the servers of popular pro wrestling merchandise website, Pro Wrestling Tees.
After AEW Dynamite went off the air, Jericho went on a Twitter rampage re-tweeting comments about his promo and "The Inner Circle" faction. As far as tweets Jericho posted directly, his first read as follows:
"We are taking control.... #InnerCircle #LeChampion."
From there, he gloated about the aforementioned Pro Wrestling Tees server crashing from all the attention he garnered with one promo on AEW Dynamite.
"STUDS," wrote Jericho along with a studio photo of "The Inner Circle" faction members. "Sammy Guevara is an acrobatic genius and HOT AF."
He continued, putting over the former LAX tag-team. "Santana & Ortiz are rusty nail, street fighting pit bulls that I would trust with my life," wrote the AEW World Champion, before switching gears and praising the undefeated MMA Heavyweight prospect.
"Jake Hager is the most feared man in MMA today and a trusted hand of the king," wrote Jericho before closing out his message. "These are my closest confidants ... these are my family...this is the #InnerCircle! #WeAreTakingControl."
Jericho would go on to re-tweet several fan comments in reaction to the aforementioned promo, as well as his shots at WWE and the naming of his faction as "The Inner Circle."
