The Inner Circle is arguably the most dominant faction in AEW. Led by Chris Jericho; Sammy Guevara. Santana & Ortiz, and Jake Hager have been featured in prominent spots in AEW since the group was formed on the first episode of Dynamite.
Aside from a cameo appearance by Jeff Cobb, the group has remained the same, and Jericho wants to keep it that way....unless something that makes sense comes along.
"I don't know, it depends on what happens in the storylines," Jericho told SportsKeeda when asked if there would be a new Inner Circle member. "To me, everything is based on the story, the story that we're telling, what fits, what doesn't fit. I think one of the downfalls of the original nWo was when they started having Virgil and guys like that in there. It kind of takes some of the exclusiveness and cool factor. If someone's gonna be in The Inner Circle and get asked into The Inner Circle for real, it's gonna have to be for a very good reason and something I'm going to have to be convinced of. I'm not opposed to it, but I'm not actively searching for new members."
The Inner Circle were scheduled to battle The Elite in Blood & Guts to see who the dominant faction is. Unfortunately, the match was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, The Inner Circle are doing the Flim Flam.
