Chris Jericho recently spoke with WrestleZone Managing Editor Bill Pritchard about the longevity of the Inner Circle stable, a group he previously said he could envision as being a “DX style” group that stands the test of time. That comment originally came in September, long before any of the problems in the group started.
Fans have seen the Inner Circle at odds in recent weeks, including last Wednesday when Sammy Guevara quit the stable on AEW Dynamite, but Jericho rebuffs claims by fans that “know” what’s coming next. Jericho says each episode is part of a bigger story and outside of some unavoidable issues, it’s all gone according to plan. He added that people can watch and try and guess or be “in the know”, but it’s more exciting from a storytelling perspective to watch it unfold each week.
“It’s exciting to see every week how the story unfolds and I always say, like when I go to a movie, I don’t want to know what the beginning, middle and end is. I want you to surprise me and see it kind of unfold the way that the director and the storytellers want it to unfold. So, when people always try and guess what’s going on—and maybe one week they’ll bury something because they didn’t like what happened or whatever—it’s just one part of the story,” Jericho explained. “Here’s the story [and here’s how it breaks down] each week. One scene leads to the next, but I think our fan base knows that, and I think that’s why our numbers continue to grow. Demo God is no joke, our demos are through the roof. I know that our TV partner is very happy with it and we’re kind of looked upon as the cool wrestling company, the cutting edge wrestling company and that’s exactly what we are.”
