- There's always room for members of the Inner Circle as long as they're good enough. MJF was a possible and probable selection whether tonight happened or not.

- Seeing Dean Malenko as a judge pissed him off. 

- Jericho says Soul Train Jones provides him inspiration, and doesn't think we've seen the last of Soul Train Jones in AEW. 

- AEW didn't ask for a war, and they can't control what goes up against them. He's not surprised AEW is beating NXT, because their star power crushes NXT's. They're worried about their own storylines.

- He puts over Inner Circle, MJF, Darby Allin and Scorpio Sky. He says they've reinvented Jake Hager.

- He thinks the tag team rankings are shit because he and Sammy Guevara aren't ranked, and challenges SCU for the tag titles. 

- Nyla Rose, Jamie Hayter, Bea Priestley are mentioned as possible female members of the Inner Circle. 

- He says Inner Circle is better than "those DOA asshole bikers."

- Jericho says the Tanahashi match is in the bag, and people in NJPW are afraid of him.

- Jericho says wrestling companies have never started the way that AEW did, selling out venues. He admits they've gotten a few mulligans because of it. 

- Jericho knew he couldn't do anything else in WWE when he and Owens had the best story in WWE and they ended up in the second match on WrestleMania. 

- Chris Jericho notes that he's been slapped by Nick Hausman's mother.
