All Elite Wrestling’s New Year’s Smash is getting fleshed out.
After Chris Jericho and MJF defeated Top Flight, Jake Hager challenged Wardlow to a fight rather than the staring contest they’ve been having. Hager says everyone in The Inner Circle is putting in the work and doing their part … except Wardlow, who missed the show due to family business.
