Chris Jericho opens Dynamite making his way down to the ring
following his loss to Eddie Kingston at Revolution. Jericho refused
to shake Kingston’s hand – despite what he said before the match –
after Kingston won. Jericho says Revolution was one of the greatest
nights of his career despite losing because it was one of his best
matches ever. Jericho says he has to thank Kingston for awakening
something in him that he wasn’t sure was still there. He says that
Kingston brought something out of him that he wasn’t sure existed
Jericho says he didn’t live up to his word after the match and his
word means everything to him. Jericho says he was frustrated and he
wants to apologize to Kingston face-to-face and shake his hand.
Kingston comes out and says the Friday before the PPV he didn’t want
to show up. He says he wanted to go out and drink and let the poison
that has eaten him up all his life to do it again. He says that
Jericho was right, he had lost every big match and he was afraid.
Kingston says he had four separate people come up to him and tell
him that they didn’t “end themselves” after reading the article he
wrote for Player’s Tribune. He said he cried in his Hotel room
because he wanted to make those people proud and he went out there
at Revolution and did it. Kingston says that he brought out the old
Jericho, the Lionheart, that he looked up to.
Kingston says that Jericho refusing to shake his hand and refusal to
respect the younger guys in AEW is a Jericho problem and he needs to
figure out what is wrong with him causing him to have that “hole” in
his chest. Jericho apologizes to Kingston and offers a handshake and
Daniel Garcia and 2point0 run out and attack both Jericho and
Kingston until Santana and Ortiz run out and clean house. Santana
holds Garcia for Jericho to hit him with his bat but Jericho hits
Santana and Ortiz instead! Jericho, 2point0 and Garcia beat Kingston
and PNP down! Jake Hager runs out and asks Jericho what the hell is
going on but then Hager attacks PNP and Kingston, as well. 2point0
holds Kingston down so that Jericho can hit him with the bat. Hager
Powerbombs Kingston off the apron through a table. Jericho and Hager
lay their Inner Circle jackets on top of PNP and Jericho says this
is the “Jericho Appreciation Society.”
A video package highlights Punk-MJF from Revolution as Punk says
that everyone in the locker room that wanted to see the “old CM
Punk” are going to regret it. Punk says that the “other CM Punk” is
dead. “Long live CM Punk,” he says.

Schiavone interviews Regal and Moxley/Danielson after the match.
Tony calls Regal “your lordship.” Regal says it has been 29 years
since he and Schiavone were on TBS together for the first time. He
says he’s lived more than a hard life through battles in the ring
and battles with himself. Regal gets emotional when he thanks
Schaivone for helping him when he first came to America. He says he
knows he isn’t “long for this world” and in the past two months he
completely checked out of the industry he loves. He says someone
told him that his old friend, Danielson, mentioned him on TV and it
Regal says that’s when he found out Moxley and Danielson were going
to fight. He says that Danielson is probably the only reason that an
entire generation of fans even know him. Regal says that Danielson
is the wrestler he should have been and calls him the perfect
wrestling. He talks about training with Danielson years ago and
Danielson became everything he could never be because he didn’t have
the problems Regal had.
Regal turns his attention to Moxley and says for an entire year the
psychological and physical problems they put each other through
would make the devil cry. He says that Moxley is the perfect sadist.
He says that is why he thinks that them together is the perfect
team. He says any team that gets in the ring will not like the
outcome and either you step up or get stepped on.

he always has.
Wardlow comes out and says that he was tired of helping MJF fulfill
his dreams and he knew MJF wasn’t a good person when he signed up
for the job. He says the fans will have to forgive him for
associating with trash like MJF, but he grew up very poor so MJF
gave him the opportunity to get his foot in the door in AEW and paid
him a lot of money. He says it doesn’t matter how much you pay
someone, it doesn’t give you the right to threaten them or
disrespect them. He says when MJF slapped him last week he decided
his own fate. He says he’s still under contract to MJF but he just
doesn’t give a damn anymore. He says that after years of giving,
it’s his turn to start taking and AEW is his world.
Backstage, QT Marshall approaches Keith Lee and says The Factory
will have his back against Team Taz, but Lee says he has a very
large back and he’s good on his own.

cage. She says what she’s afraid of is what happens to AEW if “carny
riff raff” like Rosa becomes a champion. She reminds Rosa that she
