In a verbal showdown between the Blackpool Combat Club and the Jericho Appreciation Society, William Regal made some startling claims about Chris Jericho’s toothbrush.
After the mass brawl that erupted during the previous week on AEW Dynamite, the Blackpool Combat Club and Chris Jericho Society were scheduled to meet face-to-face on May 18th.
As William Regal held court in the ring with Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz. Jericho appeared on the ramp with Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard and “Cool Hand Ang” Angelo Parker.
With tensions obviously running high between the two factions, things got very real, very quickly. Jericho referenced Regal’s previous battles with addiction, said that he had wasted any talent he had, while being fired from every company he had ever been a part of.
In response to the wince-inducing insults, Regal took things in his own unique direction. He said that while Jericho hit on some home truths, he had a revelation of his own. Since 1997 when Jericho was in the ring, he had snuck into his locker room and put his “toothbrush up my bottom.” He even suggested he’d done the same to Daniel Garcia last week.

At that, the insults quickly returned with more harsh words exchanged back and forth, Jericho taking aim at Moxley over his recent stint in a rehab facility. The self-proclaimed wizard was about to follow that up with a challenge to a Stadium Stampede match at Double or Nothing, but Moxley quickly cut him off, commenting that he wasn’t “doing that sh*t.”
Instead the two teams will meet in the ring with no-holds barred. Not that Kingston wanted to wait, challenging Jericho and his followers to a fight right there and then. As the Jericho Appreciation Society teased a confrontation before leaving, dissention erupted in the ring, as Danielson and Kingston had to be restrained from going after each other.
