It's Wednesday Night! And that means I hope my friends in Florida are safe. Hurricane Ian is no joke.  On the AEW front we are LIVE. Tony Schiavone, Excalibur and Taz are on the call as AEW Dynamite is on the air from Philadelphia.

It's time for a celebration! The Jericho Appreciation Society, including Daniel Garcia, come out to honor the new Ring of Honor world champion Chris Jericho.  The pizza guy is in the ring. Angelo Parker imitates Roman Reigns by telling the crowd to appreciate them.  Matt Menard takes credit for Pizza Guy being there. Anna Jay tells the crowd that none of them get pizza.  Philly wants pizza. Instead they get Jericho, who reminds them that they can't have pizza. Jericho runs down ROH's past.  It's now Ring of Jericho and he's put the exclamation point on his win last week with a title defense over Bandido later tonight.

Jericho introduces ROH Pure champion Daniel Garcia.  He gives Garcia a gift. It's a purple bucket hat. Garcia throws it down and punches out the Pizza Guy.  He tells Jericho he's not a sports entertainer. He gets cut off in the midst of quitting the JAS. Jericho asks him one more time if he's a pro wrestler or a sports entertainer.  

Bryan Danielson comes out. He tells Jericho that he shouldn't tell Garcia who he should be.  Danielson tells him to be whatever he wants to be, he's a grown man. Jericho tells Danielson to shut his mouth. Garcia, sick of Jericho telling him he owns him, grabs the mic and tells Jericho he doesn't have to be anyone he doesn't want to be.  BTW Pizza Guy Luigi is still unconscious.  Garcia asks the crowd if they want to see Garcia and Danielson vs. Jericho and Guevara. Menard is not happy and gets in Danielson's face.

Conveniently, Danielson is allowed to make any match he wants. He challenges Menard to a match here and now.  

William Regal has joined the booth.
