Best segment I've seen on Dynamite for a while. 

Jericho and MJF are two of the best talkers in the business and they have fantastic chemistry, this segment was the most entertaining part of Dynamite and continued the story of will he or wont he with MJF joining the Inner Circle. Looking forward to the steak dinner segment next week. 

Its expected that this will result in a Jericho babyface turn and feud with MJF but I personally would much rather see a loose alliance between the two men as they have far more value doing promo work together than they do by having a match against each other. 

The Inner Circle needs a fresh coat of paint anyway, I would remove LAX as they've never made sense in the group and have been defined down as a jobber team as of late I would rather see them aligned with Eddie Kingston. 

I would love to see a new Inner Circle of Jericho, MJF, Hager, Guevara and Wardlow, I also think Wardlow will eventually turn face and split from MJF.

You can have a double switch of MJF taking over the Inner Circle by everyone beating down Jericho.

First put MJF in the group and over time build it up so Jericho is losing his power within the group, with the Inner Circle siding with MJF more than Jericho on decision making.

You could have Wardlow make the save for Jericho to switch him face.

I'm gonna be the odd ond out this classical music segment they had was so cringeworthy  and awful it felt like Vince McMahon booking. 

I'm probably one of the only people that does not like MJF I dont think hes particularly talented , I dont think hes a good heel I just think hes extremely overrated, my dislike of him equals that of kondors dislike for Elias.

The segment was mildly amusing at times but the part where they broke into song and dance like they were in some cheesy musical was just silly and didn't make any sense. I'm somebody that can suspend their disbelief and enjoys the over the top sports entertainment factor of wrestling often more than I enjoy the matches, but AEW has always built their reputation on being more of a legit sport based product and have stayed away from WWE style wackiness, but if WWE had produced a segment like this fans would be crapping all over it but of course because its AEW the marks are talking about this like it was a piece of creative genius. 

Jericho and MJF are great characters and I had high hopes for this segment but this was a disappointment and I dont know what it was supposed to achieve in terms of advancing the storyline of MJF possibly joining the Inner Circle.

That segment was awful and would have been shit all over if Vince Mcmahon had come up with it.

MJF has had all the good work done with his character ruined in one go by making him look like a cheesy and camp babyface broadway singer.

The best stuff comes over as natural whilst this was too heavily scripted with the females already there knowing what was about to happen.

Why do we care how they want their steak?

AEW marks are trying to defend the segment saying it's got people talking and it was two heels being heelish by annoying the fans. 

I watch AEW and I like a lot of what they do but this was naff. It was cheesy and daft and I have no idea what it was supposed to achieve. 
The start of the segment with both men trying to outdo the other with how rare they wanted their steak cooked was very mildly amusing but it went very downhill after that.

It is being hailed online as one of the most entertaining things in wrestling but im not into that sort of cheesy shit

I do like how they are working towards MJF in the inner circlewhich will inevitably turn into him leading the faction and turning on Jericho allowing Y2J a face run in AEW.

The segment is getting a lot of praise so I watched it again but it still didn't hit home with me, it just wasnt to my taste I'm all for comedy segments in wrestling when they're well done but I didn't find this particularly amusing or entertaining. What I like about Jericho and MJF in AEW is they push boundaries with their promo material and deliver it with such great comic timing and enthusiasm and they can do so much better than some lame attempt at a cheesy musical. 

They do seem to be headed towards a Jericho babyface turn which would allow MJF to assume control of the Inner Circle and perhaps also allow for Wardlow to turn babyface on MJF. 

It was a return to form this week with the town hall segment, I enjoyed this a lot far better than the silly steak dinner shenanigans from last week. It will he very interesting to see what happens at Full Gear.
