Opening tonight’s show: the Jericho Appreciation Society Championship Celebration!
ROH World Champion Chris Jericho came out with Angelo Parker, Matt Menard, Anna Jay-AS, ROH Pure Champion Daniel Garcia, Sammy Guevara, and Tay Melo.
“What a celebration we have for you tonight. Daddy Magic put the call in to the pizza guy, Luigi Primo,” said Matt.
“It’s from ah-New York City,” said Luigi.
“None of you get pizza, but you do get the greatest ROH Champion of all day, Chris Jericho” said Anna.
Jericho: “You guys want pizza? You can’t have any. What you can have is the most important Ring of Honor Champion in history, the Ocho Chris Jericho. In just one week more people have seen me as Ring of Honor World Champion than all the other ROH Champions combined.
“This is the era of Ring of Jericho. I’m going to start tonight by having my first title defense against former ROH Champion Bandido. But he is a wrestler and sports entertainers beat wrestlers every single time.
“Danny Garcia, I know we’ve had our miscommunications, but I know you’re an amazing sports entertainer, and I bought this gift just for you.”
Jericho handed Garcia a box to open. Inside was a purple bucket hat.
“Yes, that is the look of the best technical sports entertainer of all time!” said Jericho.
Garcia removed the hat and threw it to the mat. Garcia decked Luigi!
Garcia: “This is enough. This isn’t me. This isn’t what I envisioned of myself when I got into this business. I tolerated it. But I need to tell you something I’ve been meaning to get off my chest. Chris, I think it’s time for—”
Jericho: “This about this. This is a crossroads for you. Make the wrong decision and I’m going to have to take you out. I’m going to ask you this once and I want you to answer properly. Are you a sports entertainer or are you a pro wrestler?”
“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson walked down to the ring with a microphone in hand!
“The celebration has just gotten very interesting,” said Tony Schiavone.
Danielson: “Chris it seems to me like you’re trying to tell Daniel Garcia what you think he should be. Garcia, I have an infinite amount of respect for you. You’re a grown man. You can do what you want. If you want to stay with the JAS, you can stay with them. If you want to come to the BCC, you can come with us.”
Jericho: “Danielson, shut your mouth! I am sick of you trying to poach my guy. Daniel Garcia does what I tell him to do!”
Garcia: “Chris let’s get one thing straight right now. I don’t belong to you and I don’t gotta do nothing that you tell me to do. But let’s not get too serious. We’re supposed to be entertaining right now. What if I threw this pizza on the ground? Would that be entertaining? Justin Roberts, what if we were a tag team, would that be entertaining? Do you guys think it’d be entertaining if I was in a tag team with Bryan Danielson?”
The fans chanted “Yes!”
Garcia: “I think it’d be real entertaining if me and Bryan teamed against you and your little bro Sammy Guevara.”
Matt Menard: “We are sick of your crap. We had your back since day one and now you want to spit in our face and tag with Danielson! I ought to punch you in your face right now!”
Danielson: “Right now? Well I have some good news. I was told I can come out here and have a fight with anyone that wants one. So why don’t we have a fight between the entertainer ‘Daddy Magic’ and the heart of professional wrestling Bryan Danielson?”

“Philly don’t get too excited because we know Max just likes to run and hide. Max knows once the bell rings he can’t hang with me. Come down here and take the ass kicking you deserve!”
MJF’s music hit!
MJF: “Cut my music. Everybody give it up for Wheeler Yuta, the hometown boy. Tony Schiavone is a coward just like everybody in this arena. Except you Wheeler. You’re no coward. You and I wrestled up and down when we wrestled on the independent circuit.
“You made a mistake when you went toe-to-toe with me on the microphone last week. You’re taking up my time, the biggest draw in AEW! At twenty-six years of age, I make more money than this bum town and everyone watching at home!”
Yuta: “I don’t care about your money. I don’t care about your scarf. If you don’t want to fight me in this ring, I will leave you in a pull of blood on Broad Street! You may not know this Max, but bad things happen in Philadelphia and tonight is no exception.”
Colton and Austin Gunn from the Firm came out to be MJF’s security!
MJF: “I’ll see you in the ring next week in dumpy D.C. I’m going to go up in that sky box and watch Jon Moxley wrestle.”

You and your tag team partner broke my nose yet again.
“But that’s not why we’re here tonight. Toni, you’ve got quite the match on your hands. And Jamie Hayter will have her shot after Serena Deeb does. One missed step from you when you’re in the ring with the Professor and we’ll hear the words ‘And new…’ Bring out Serena!”
