ROH Champions Meet In A Tag Team Challenge On AEW Dynamite

December 8, 2022

Last week in Philadelphia, the city where Ring of Honor was born, AEW fans were treated to a classic ROH World Championship match between Chris Jericho and Bandido, witnessed The Acclaimed successfully defend their AEW World Tag Team Championships for the first time in a Three-Way contest, and watched Toni Storm retain her AEW Interim Women’s World Championship over “The Professor” Serena Deeb in an impromptu Lumberjack Match. 

This week the elite action returns to the city where DYNAMITE was born, Washington D.C., and back to the Entertainment & Sports Arena! The ROH World Champion unites with his “Le Sex Gods” partner Sammy Guevara to battle “The American Dragon” and ROH Pure Champion Daniel Garcia!

ROH Pure Champion Daniel Garcia & Bryan Danielson vs. ROH World Champion Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara

What a turn of events we witnessed last week coming out of Jericho’s Championship Celebration! Not only did it ultimately end up in “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard battling “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson in the former’s first AEW singles match, but it also saw the already strained relationship between Daniel Garcia and Chris Jericho completely fall to pieces.

“Red Death” completely rained on the ROH World Champion’s parade, knocked out the pizza man, trashed his pizzas, and ultimately challenged “The Wizard” and Sammy Guevara to meet Garcia and “The American Dragon” in a tag team match this week on DYNAMITE. The challenge raised the ire of Matt Menard, feeling Garcia was unappreciative of everything he and Angelo Parker had done for Daniel since coming to AEW, and the back-and-forth that resulted eventually led to a singles bout between Danielson and “Daddy Magic”:

Danielson defeated Menard in the impromptu battle, but the night wasn’t over yet for this evolving situation. After defeating former ROH World Champion Bandido in a stellar match, Chris Jericho made a challenge:

Chris Jericho versus Bryan Danielson: Round III, but this time with the ROH World Championship on the line, and taking place in Jericho’s home country of Canada. That was a challenge for another week though, the one for this week still stood, and now it will take place in Washington D.C., the very city where Jericho first brought Sammy Guevara under his wing to form The Inner Circle, where Sammy will once again be at Chris’ side, but they are pit against the ROH World Champion’s latest pupil Daniel Garcia, and his professional wrestling hero, Bryan Danielson.

This is a match with a great deal of potential repercussions for the ROH World Title match in Toronto, for the future of the ROH Pure Title, for the future of The Jericho Appreciation Society, and that of The Blackpool Combat Club as well. Which team will get their hand raised in D.C., and how will it color the future of All Elite Wrestling? 

The action begins at 8pm EDT/7pm CDT, and you can get ready for the action by visiting the official AEW YouTube channel for Dynamite and Rampage highlights, as well as the latest editions of AEW Dark: Elevation, AEW Dark, and Road To!
