The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz) lost to The Pinnacle (MJF, FTR, Wardlow, and Shawn Spears) when MJF threatened to throw Jericho off the structure in the Blood and Guts match on last week’s episode of Dynamite.

“It is totally consistent with Vince. There absolutely were high ranking people who said that and at least one who thought the opposite.”

AEW will follow up on this match this week on Dynamite. It's unclear as of now what the promotion has planned for the two factions at the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view event later this month.
