• Chris Jericho Reveals Original Plans For “Inner Circle” Stable In AEW

During a recent edition of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho revealed original plans for his “Inner Circle” stable in All Elite Wrestling.

Below is what Jericho said:

“Tony’s original name, I can’t remember what it was, I didn’t like it as much. Then I came up with the idea of a fist, which would be five fingers forms a fist, and I thought it would just be some cool merch.

Tony didn’t care for that one, but I had done something for BTE (Being The Elite) where I mentioned my inner circle and The Bucks said ‘that’s a cool name, what about The Inner Circle?’”

“One of the ideas originally was The Lucha Brothers and I thought they were too much like superheroes. I wanted killers and Santana & Ortiz were perfect.”

“I suggested MJF, but it was like we should keep him on his own, and then [Sammy Guevara’s] name was mentioned. Perfect, Sammy’s great.

Now we need a big guy, who’s it going to be? They wanted to use a Boxer they had just signed from the UK and I was like ‘nah he’s not big enough.’ I said ‘Hager’s the guy.’ So we got him.

So that’s kinda the whole get together was very much each guy plays a role and has a certain part within the system of the circle.”
