Chris Jericho formed the “Jericho Appreciation Society” on tonight’s AEW Dynamite, turning on Inner Circle stablemates Santana and Ortiz.
Jericho turned on Santana, Ortiz, and Eddie Kingston after he attacked them with a baseball bat, joining forces with 2point0 and Daniel Garcia who originally attacked Jericho and Kingston. After they powerbombed Kingston through a table, Jericho announced the formation of the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Tonight’s episode of Dynamite opened with Jericho asking Eddie Kingston to come out, seemingly remorseful for not shaking Kingston’s hand like he said he would after Kingston defeated him at Revolution. After the two exchanged words, they shook hands. 2point0 and Daniel Garcia then arrived, attacking Jericho and Kingston. Santana and Ortiz came for the save and set up one of 2point0 to be attacked with Jericho’s baseball bat. However, Jericho instead attacked Santana and Ortiz with the bat. When Jake Hager ran in, he sided with Jericho, attacking Santana, Ortiz, and Kingston.
Dissension had formed between Jericho and Inner Circle members Santana and Ortiz in recent weeks. It eventually led to a match, where Ortiz and Santana defeated Jericho and Hager in a tag team match on the February 16 edition of Dynamite.
