Eddie Kingston thought the AEW Revolution was the most important. He ran into Chris Jericho in the opener and hit him clean with the Stretch Plum. However, this loss would just send Chris Jericho to the bottom. Suddenly, Jericho would break The Inner Circle to form the Jericho Appreciation Society and wage war on Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz.
He even started throwing fireballs at people and pretending to be a wizard. However tonight, he better trust his newfound allies – as Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz and two members of the Blackpool Combat Club along with Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson are all here.
It’s Anarchy In The Arena, and it’s going to be a dangerous fight for sure. Justin Roberts said it best, shit about to hit the fan. There are no rules, ten men and lots of violence to come.
