Last night’s episode of Dynamite saw the Inner Circle make their first-ever appearance on the show in over two weeks after they were brutally and viscously attacked by MJF’s stable called the Pinnacle as a result of the Inner Circle removing MJF from the group and MJF creating the Pinnacle to destroy the Inner Circle. Following the attack, the Inner Circle got into a huge brawl with the Pinnacle, beating them up senseless all over Daily’s Place.
Last night the Inner Circle’s Chris Jericho addressed the Pinnacle and the fans, first apologizing to the people for decisions they made and blaming MJF, who he called his jerk-off friend, for some of the recent bad decisions. Jericho then said he’s not smart at certain things, but he is smart about pro wrestling and that is why he brought MJF into the Inner Circle.
The Demo God then said that he and the Inner Circle knew that MJF would figure out their plan to keep him under his thumb but MJF outsmarted them. Jericho then said that they are done playing around then announced that on May 5th there will be a Blood And Guts Match between Inner Circle and The Pinnacle.
A Blood And Guts Match was originally scheduled to take place between the Elite and the Inner Circle, but the match did not push through due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no word yet on if the rules of the match will be the same as the originally announced rules, but updates will be provided once it becomes available.
