During the first hour of AEW Dynamite tonight on TNT, AEW Champion Chris Jericho explained the actions of himself and several other stars last week. With Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Ortiz and Santana at his side, Jericho stated they were here to take over. They are the opposition to the management and leaders of Cody, the Young Bucks, and Hangman Page. It was announced that his group of heels was to be called his “Inner Circle”.
Towards the end of the segment, the announcers teased new Inner Circle merch by stating that it should be made into a shirt. It was followed up by JR announcing to check out ProWrestlingTee.com/InnerCircle.
Within minutes of the segment ending, anyone trying to get on ProWrestlingTees.com was redirected to an error page. The host server for the website had crashed due to a high volume of traffic.
Pro Wrestling Tees gave a statement on their Facebook page once AEW Dynamite ended:
“The site is kind of in and out. When this tee was announced we had 4x the highest number of visitors on our site than we ever had before. Leave it to @chrisjerichofozzy to crash the merch site during live TV!!!”
This is another huge statement from AEW. It also further proves that Chris Jericho is the right man to market as the champion of the company.
As of this moment, the website is available and you can see the new Inner Circle t-shirt design for sale.
