Jake Hager loves the Inner Circle.
The enforcer of the Chris Jericho-led faction in AEW took to social media on Thursday to share a photo that the group took behind-the-scenes at this week's AEW Dynamite on TBS show.
Along with the photo, Hager wrote the following caption acknowledging the group winning the "Faction of the Year" honors from Pro Wrestling Illustrated.
"We chose to die on our feet rather than live on our knees," he started. "What you see on screen is Real. I could not love a human baby as much as I Love the Inner Circle. I’m very proud of Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz."
Hager concluded, "Thank you to all the amazing fans."
Check out the tweet, which includes the aforementioned photo of the group backstage at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina at Wednesday night's AEW taping, via the post embedded below courtesy of Jake Hager's official Twitter feed. Also below is the same photo tweeted by Sammy Guevara.
