As previously reported, a big Inner Circle war council meeting was held during last week’s episode of Dynamite and during that meeting MJF told the rest of the Inner Circle members inside the ring to get Jericho, but the guys ended up siding with Jericho, who then kicked MJF out of the group.
MJF then revealed that he was forming a stable of his own this whole time and that is when the lights went out. When the lights came back up, FTR, Wardlow, Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard were the stars revealed to be part of MJF’s faction. MJF’s brand-new stable then brutally and viscously attacked the Inner Circle with a number of weapons, handcuffing Santana and Ortiz and powerbombing Jericho off the stage to end the show.
During last night’s episode of Dynamite, MJF said the group will now be known as The Pinnacle and MJF also let everyone know that when his career is over, he will be the G.O.A.T. and not Jericho. He also mentioned that his goal from the beginning was to kill Inner Circle from the inside and then to start up his own stronger stable.
