There's something about the Inner Circle that feels strangely fresh.

Chris Jericho is the kind of character who you'd expect to want henchmen by default, but I'm having trouble recalling any time before AEW where he had multiple henchmen for a sustained period of time.

In 2002 there were a couple of false starts with the Canadian Horsemen of Test/Christian Cage/Lance Storm, but they quickly were turned into flunkies of William Regal, with Jericho being sent off to do his own thing.

Then in 2010 there was the Nexus, which was hinted to be Jericho as the mastermind at first, but eventually turned out to be Wade Barrett just doing his own thing. (Unless it was HHH or Laurinaitis all along.)

I suppose that one of Jericho's key character traits has been not getting along with people, which might explain why he could occasionally befriend a Big Show or a Christian Cage, but not be able to pull anyone else into the fold.

Was there a faction or two I'm forgetting?

He was in a heel faction in Japan way back with Hiro Fuyuki, and a few others called, oddly, the Fuyuki Army.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

He came close in WCW with Ralphus and The Jericho Ninja (if you want to call that a faction).

And WWE dropped the ball heading into WrestleMania 18, where they could have gone with a Canadian 4 Horsemen of sorts with Jericho, Lance Storm, Christian and Test but they never ran with it entirely.

Part of it is him laying off of the steroids, and his body reverting to a more natural form... and part of it must be him letting himself go with the whole marriage to Stephanie thing.
