Chris Jericho: The Goal Of AEW Rampage Match Is To Get Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page To The Next Level
The tag match happens on Rampage tonight
Chris Jericho says the goal of the Inner Circle's match against The Men of The Year and Junior dos Santos is to get Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky up to the next level in AEW.
Jericho, Jake Hager and Sammy Guevara will take on Page, Sky and Santos on this week's AEW Rampage, and the first-ever AEW World Champion says the idea is to help get the talent over with the audience.
Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Jericho said: "The idea is to get these guys over. I worked with MJF for nearly a year with The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle, and the idea was always to get MJF and Sammy Guevara over as bigger stars. I now get to work the UFC guys and bring Ethan and Scorpio to the next level.
"Seeing Jorge Masvidal kick the s**t out of me is helping get people invested in this angle. And if Masvidal tries to hit me again with that knee, we’ll see what happens. People are going to see on Rampage that this is a different light for Sky and Page, especially next to the UFC stars. They have so much to offer.
"Scorpio had the first-ever victory against me in AEW. That was a big deal at the time. Then he finished his story with SoCal Uncensored, and I think he’s going to be one of our linchpins in the future.
"The goal is to get Scorpio and Page to the next level, and we’re going to do it in a very entertaining story line."
