Following The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Santana, Jake Hager & Ortiz’s) win over Ethan Page, Scorpio Sky, Dan Lambert, Junior dos Santos and Andrei Arlovski, Tony Schiavone welcomed a ‘special guest’ to AEW and that individual was former two-time ROH World Champion Jay Lethal.

Lethal announced that he has signed with AEW and issued a challenge to TNT Champion Sammy Guevara for the 11/17 Dynamite. Guevara accepted the challenge and it is now official that Lethal’s Dynamite debut will be for the TNT Championship.

Lethal returned to Ring of Honor in 2011 and had been with the company since then. After their Final Battle pay-per-view, ROH is going on hiatus until the spring of 2022. Their ‘Honor For All’ event is airing on 11/14. Lethal was not part of that taped event.
