Of course Jericho was lying when he said he’d never wrestle Sting

There was a lot going on before the second match of the June 14 Dynamite.

Sammy Guevara continued to lean face coming out of the Four Pillars title feud — and if the Washington, D.C. crowd is any indication, it’s working (and all I can say is, I was wrong... but in my defense, I didn’t include Guevara’s impending fatherhood in my calculus). Fellow Pillar Darby Allin showed up to prod his long-time rival toward good guy-dom by again pointing out the differences between his relationship with his mentor Sting and Sammy’s with Chris Jericho.

That brought out the “Judas” man himself to try and intimidate Guevara into staying a subservient member of the Jericho Appreciation Society. Allin stuck his nose into that, and after a threat from the Wizard... IT’S STING!

As Tony Schiavone informed us during the scene, this was the first time these two icons were sharing a ring. That was already on our minds from the moment Jericho & Darby exchanged words, because Chris reminded us of it last weekend when he tweeted that he’d “never” have a match with the Stinger.

It was the kind of thing a worker like Jericho wouldn’t call attention to... unless he wanted to plant the seed for a future match or program in our heads. Looks like we won’t have to wait too long for it, either.

Let us know how excited you are for Jericho and Sting to actually be on the opposite sides of a match someday soon.
