AEW Dynamite (September 28, 2022)
- ROH World Champion Chris Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society (Sammy Guevara, Matt Menard, Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia, Tay Melo, Anna Jay AS) are out in all purple for the Jericho Championship Celebration. Luigi Primo is there making pizza as there are pizza boxes on a table in the ring. Parker and Menard take shots at Philadelphia. They get no pizza. Jericho says this is the era of Ring of Jericho and he's the most important ROH World Champion in history. Jericho puts over his match against Bandido in the main event. Jericho gifts Daniel Garcia with a purple bucket hat. Garcia throws the hat down and hits Luigi. Jericho cuts off Garcia, who is about to make a decision, and asks him if he's a pro wrestler or sports entertainer.
- Bryan Danielson comes out before Garcia can give an answer. Danielson says Garcia can make his own decision. Jericho says Garcia is with him. Garcia says he doesn't belong to Jericho. Garcia is ready to entertain and says he would find himself & Danielson against Jericho & Guevara entertaining. Menard wants to punch Danielson, Danielson is ready to fight, and the match is on.
Bryan Danielson vs. Matt Menard
Menard gets the early advantage but Danielson turns things around with his striking. Danielson is shoved off the top and to the outside where Menard uses the guard rail to punish Danielson. Back from commercial break and back in the ring, Menard remains on offense. Danielson reverses the momentum and hits his signature running corner dropkick and kicks. Danielson misses a knee on the outside and Parker gets involved, hitting a DDT on the outside. Claudio Castagnoli comes down and carries Parker away. Back in the ring, Danielson hits the running knee and locks in the LeBell lock for the win.

- Highlights from the MJF and Wheeler Yuta segment at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam.
- Wheeler Yuta comes out and says he has a problem with MJF because he put his hands on Tony Schiavone. Yuta doesn't expect MJF to fight him in Philly because MJF loves to hide. He calls out MJF, who comes out and makes fun of Schiavone and Philly fans. MJF admits Yuta is one of the best wrestlers in the world, but he made a mistake when he got on the mic with him. MJF brags about being a ratings draw and making a lot of money. "Shit" is blanked out when MJF says it. Yuta still wants to fight and heads up the ramp, but the Gunn Club (Austin & Colten Gunn) come out. MJF says he'll wrestle Yuta next week.
