The Pinnacle issue AEW Stadium Stampede challenge to Inner Circle


After their two factions went to battle in the first-ever Blood & Guts match, The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle appear destined for another high-profile clash at this month's AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view: a Stadium Stampede match.

As MJF's crew was celebrating their win Wednesday on Dynamite with a coronation party, a horn started beeping and an Inner Circle-branded cart with Ortiz, Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager pulled up. As MJF verbally ran them down, Chris Jericho then appeared in the cart with his left elbow taped up and in a brace. He demanded an answer for a rematch and MJF said no. Guevara then sprayed down the ring with a giant hose, soaking all of the Pinnacle members.

An incensed MJF got back on the mic and challenged The Inner Circle to a Stadium Stampede match at the Sunday, May 30th pay-per-view, but with a stipulation. If The Inner Circle loses, the team has to break up forever. Jericho didn't answer, leaving the question up in the air.

The Inner Circle competed in the first-ever Stadium Stampede match at last year's Double or Nothing, losing to The Elite.
