Reddit user SpaceForce1, who has been on the money with several backstage scoops in AEW over recent months, has revealed what is going to go down with MJF’s new stable that debuted at the end of Wednesday night’s episode of Dynamite.
According to the Reddit post, the faction will be called The Pinnacle, with the following summary being written about the segment for next week’s show, which is believed to have been taped yesterday:
MJF hits the ring with his new crew and Tully is first on the mic. He runs down exactly how all of the Inner Circle members got destroyed last week. He says the group he surrounds himself with is at the pinnacle of the industry. He was with the greatest group in wrestling history years ago, and he plans on retiring as a part of the greatest group in wrestling history today. MJF takes the mic and says that he’s Judas now. He says it wasn’t easy pretending to like Jericho all that time and makes fun of Jericho’s separated pecs. He says he laughed at all of Jericho’s jokes and tolerated all the nonsense while he plucked the Inner Circle like feathers. He says his entire plan was to make everyone think he was trying to take over the Inner Circle so that no one would notice that he was putting together his own group. The plan was always to destroy the Inner Circle and replace it with a better group. He christens the group “The Pinnacle” and hypes each member, including calling FTR the only grand slam tag champions in wrestling history and the best tag team in the world. He talks himself up and calls himself a fine wine, saying that it makes everyone at home want to punch through their screens at how good he is. He reminds everyone that he’s only 24 and that he’s got at least 25 years left in the business. He again reminds us that the group is called The Pinnacle. He says they’re going to take all of the gold and ends with a message directly to Jericho – “I’m better than you, and you know it”.
For those that missed the segment, MJF left The Inner Circle on Dynamite this week, forming a new faction with FTR, Wardlow, Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard. This angle seemingly saw The Inner Circle turn babyface.
