AEW has announced that Chris Jericho and Daniel Garcia will come face-to-face on this week’s AEW Dynamite episode.
Last week’s House of The Dragon edition of AEW Dynamite opened with Bryan Danielson defeating Garcia in a 2 of 3 Falls bout that went around 25 minutes. After the match, Danielson offered Garcia a handshake and it looked like he was going to accept it, but Jericho attacked from behind and laid Danielson out. Garcia quickly pushed Jericho away and Jericho got in his face, pointing at him and yelling. Garcia slapped Jericho’s hand away and the segment ended with Jericho warning Garcia before making his exit.
Now AEW has announced that Jericho is questioning Garcia’s loyalty to The Jericho Appreciation Society, and plans to confront him face-to-face on Dynamite.
“As @bryandanielson offered @GarciaWrestling a handshake after a classic bout last week, @IAmJericho ambushed Bryan from behind; Jericho was shocked when Garcia impeded his assault! Now Jericho’s questioned Garcia’s loyalty & will confront him face-to-face TOMORROW on #AEWDynamite,” AEW tweeted.
