Last week we had a huge twelve man tag team match, showing The Inner Circle as a united front against Best Friends, Varsity Blondes and Top Flight. Inner Circle won, but kept attacking Griff Garrison after the bell. This prompted Top Flight to save their ally, and sent MJF & Jericho running. Now they find themselves in the ring with Jericho once again, as they have another chance to win a major tag team encounter.
Top Flight Are Next Level
Darius got things started with Jericho, throwing forearms at Le Champion and using his speed to stay on top. He got a big enziguri and tagged Dante, and Top Flight showed excellent tag team precision. However, it’ll take more than that to keep Le Champion down, and MJF came in. He’d barely keep pace with Dante, before being kicked out of the ring. An all out brawl broke out between all four men, with Top Flight winning out with another set of dropkicks.
Top Flight went outside, and that was their first mistake of the match. Jake Hager’s presence got them off their game, and allowed Inner Circle to take control again. Jericho went to work on Dante, hitting a big knee to the stomach and a textbook back suplex. Alongside MJF, they hit a double flapjack and just stepped on their opponent. Darius tried to get into the ring, and MJF choked Dante behind the referee’s back.
The Numbers Of Inner Circle Benefit Chris Jericho & MJF
Dante was getting desperate for a tag, and was set up on the top rope. Jericho wanted the superplex, but Dante fought free and sent Jericho down and nailed a high crossbody for a two count, and more importantly got the tag. The fresh Darius met MJF with a standing Spanish Fly, a suicide dive to Jericho and a diving dropkick for a near fall! MJF got hit with a leapfrog splash to the back, and an O’Connor Roll got a near fall.
MJF shut Dante down with a pop-up powerbomb and tagged Jericho for the Lionsault, but only got a two count. He’d try for the Liontamer next, and get countered into a pinfall. Darius got a blind tag in, and Jericho was getting frustrated. He tagged in MJF, but Darius got a double DDT to keep control. It was Hager yanking Darius into the apron as he tried to springboard that stopped him, and let MJF nail the Heatseeker for the win.
After the match, Hager called out Wardlow for not being here, and revealed he will face him next week on AEW Dynamite! Who will win this hoss fight? Can Inner Circle survive more cracks? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
