Chris Jericho opens Dynamite making his way down to the ring following his loss to Eddie Kingston at Revolution. Jericho refused to shake Kingston’s hand – despite what he said before the match – after Kingston won. Jericho says Revolution was one of the greatest nights of his career despite losing because it was one of his best matches ever. Jericho says he has to thank Kingston for awakening something in him that he wasn’t sure was still there. He says that Kingston brought something out of him that he wasn’t sure existed anymore.
Jericho says he didn’t live up to his word after the match and his word means everything to him. Jericho says he was frustrated and he wants to apologize to Kingston face-to-face and shake his hand. Kingston comes out and says the Friday before the PPV he didn’t want to show up. He says he wanted to go out and drink and let the poison that has eaten him up all his life to do it again. He says that Jericho was right, he had lost every big match and he was afraid.
Kingston says he had four separate people come up to him and tell him that they didn’t “end themselves” after reading the article he wrote for Player’s Tribune. He said he cried in his Hotel room because he wanted to make those people proud and he went out there at Revolution and did it. Kingston says that he brought out the old Jericho, the Lionheart, that he looked up to.
Kingston says that Jericho refusing to shake his hand and refusal to respect the younger guys in AEW is a Jericho problem and he needs to figure out what is wrong with him causing him to have that “hole” in his chest. Jericho apologizes to Kingston and offers a handshake and Kingston accepts.

He says he’s lived more than a hard life through battles in the ring and battles with himself. Regal gets emotional when he thanks Schaivone for helping him when he first came to America.

He talks about training with Danielson years ago and Danielson became everything he could never be because he didn’t have the problems Regal had.

Wardlow comes out and says that he was tired of helping MJF fulfill his dreams and he knew MJF wasn’t a good person when he signed up for the job. He says the fans will have to forgive him for associating with trash like MJF, but he grew up very poor so MJF gave him the opportunity to get his foot in the door in AEW and paid him a lot of money. He says it doesn’t matter how much you pay someone, it doesn’t give you the right to threaten them or disrespect them. He says when MJF slapped him last week he decided his own fate. He says he’s still under contract to MJF but he just doesn’t give a damn anymore. He says that after years of giving, it’s his turn to start taking and AEW is his world.
