In recent weeks, between Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston, things have not been going very well, with the two veterans coming at loggerheads several times, with the meddling of the couple formed by Ortiz and Santana that has made the needle of the balance several times against Kingston, despite the two have been in the Inner Circle stable for months, together with Jericho, in total harmony.
In this episode, however, the AEW preferred to stage the beginning of a new stable, with Chris Jericho who joined forces with a new team, thus completing and completing his definitive turn heel, after months in which he worked as a babyface for the Jacksonville company.
Jericho's attack against his former trusted friends, Santana and Ortiz confirmed this passage between the ranks of the heel, with Santana and Ortiz getting savagely beaten at the end of the segment between Jericho and Kingston at the beginning of the show.
Chris Jericho made his turn heel
During the recent episode of Dynamite, the show opened with Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston shaking hands, with the two soon being interrupted by 2point0 and Daniel Garcia, who appeared to enter the ring for attacking both Jericho and Kingston.
All this turned out to be a plan orchestrated by Jericho himself, in the company of the colossus Jake Hager, to attack Eddie Kingston and the other faces. In the end, after the intervention of Santana and Ortiz, the heel put the ring to fire and sword, knocking out all the faces of the situation, with a new stable heel that was thus formed by Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, 2point0 and Jake Hager, who will be called the Jericho Appreciation Society.
We will see if in the coming weeks the three faces, Kingston, Santa a and Ortiz will be able to combine their fore with someone else, to evade the numerical inferiority of the federation's heels or if they will continue this battle on 4 vs 3.
While Jericho was never officially informed that he would be in the WrestleMania match, he was aware of the press kits that were printed well in advance. "I was never officially told that I was in the match, but why would I be there if it wasn't true," added Chris Jericho.
"And there was a billboard on Sunset Boulevard with this exact picture on it. I remember seeing it driving down and going, 'Wow, that's really cool that I'm on that, and then they start talking about the four-way match, and I'm like, 'I've got to be in it.' "
