The recently released T-shirts of the Inner Circle have been high in demand. So much so, that the servers of ProWrestlingTees.com have crashed due to a sudden surge in visitors looking to purchase the shirts.
AEW World Champion Chris Jericho introduced his stable at AEW Dynamite as The Inner Circle. The stable includes Jack Hagger(formerly known as Jack Swagger in WWE), Sammy Guevara, and the tag team of Santana and Ortiz(formerly known as LAX). Within an hour of Jericho’s announcement, AEW released the merchandise for the Inner Circle via their official merchandising partners ProWrestlingTees.com.
However, as it turned out, lots of fans swarmed to order the t-shirts on the site. The sudden surge on the side led to the server from ProWrestlingTees getting crashed temporarily. The Twitter handle for the site informed the fans about the issue and told that their team is working towards getting the servers up again. As of 10 October 12 AM EST, the site was up and working again.
Chris Jericho, almost 49 years old and one of the veterans of the pro-wrestling industry, is one of the hottest wrestlers currently. Working as a heel champion, he has been one of the driving forces behind AEW creative and is also carrying the burden of being the first world champion for the promotion.
The magnitude of his popularity can be considered with the fact that the Inner Circle does not have any high profile name beside him. But still, fans are swarming to get the team’s merchandise.
