A major swerve angle played out on AEW Dynamite this week. After losing the AEW Tag Team title match at AEW Revolution 2021, Inner Circle earlier announced that a War Council segment will take place on the show.
During the segment, Sammy Guevara made his TV return. Sammy revealed that MJF has been planning to kick Chris Jericho out of Inner Circle for quite a while now. Guevara showed a video where MJF was seen trying to convince other members of the Inner Circle to remove Jericho from the group.
MJF then instructed Santana, Ortiz, and Jake Hager to attack Jericho. They instead went and stood next to Jericho, who later revealed that they knew of MJF’s plans all along.
Then, in a major swerve, MJF revealed that he is building his own faction all this time. Suddenly lights went off, and when it returned, Tully Blanchard, Shawn Spears, FTR, and Wardlow were standing behind the Inner Circle.
They completely destroyed Inner Circle and handcuffed every single member of them except Chris Jericho. The members of this new heel faction then brutally beat Jericho. Wardlow power bombed him off the stage through the table to close the show.
By the end of the episode, MJF and his new heel faction were standing tall. The name of this new team is yet to be revealed but they already cemented their place as the top heel faction in AEW. This is the magic of MJF.
Keep following this space for the latest updates on this heel faction.
