Dax Harwood of The Pinnacle received stitches in the top of his head after brawling with the Inner Circle on AEW Dynamite.
MJF delivered on his promise of gifts for his new group in their dressing room. The room that was previously occupied by the Inner Circle. Friedman presented a stylist for the group before telling them that he had also employed an interior decorator.
As MJF opened the door to the bathroom, the Inner Circle were lying in wait. As The Pinnacle tried to escape the room, Jake Hager delivered a punch to Friedman and all hell then broke loose.
In a brawl that went all over Daily’s Place, Santana and Ortiz and FTR headed outside. Cash Wheeler was pushed into an ice bath while Santana attacked Harwood. Dax The Axe was seen bleeding profusely from his head.
Following the show, AEW posted a video of Harwood receiving stitches on social media. Harwood himself posted pictures along with an ominous message for the Inner Circle:

“There’s one rule of gang fighting; they send one of yours to the hospital, you send one of theirs to the morgue.”
MJF formed The Pinnacle, turning on Chris Jericho and The Inner Circle several weeks ago on Dynamite. As Jericho was kicking Friedman out of the group, MJF then claimed to have been starting his own faction. The lights went out, before coming back on and revealing Wardlow, FTR, Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard. The Pinnacle then laid waste to the Inner Circle with Wardlow powerbombing Jericho off the stage through a table.

The Pinnacle and Inner Circle were not the only ones having faction issues on Dynamite. An increasingly disillusioned QT Marshall led a revolt within Cody Rhodes’ Nightmare Family on Dynamite.
