During his Saturday Night Special stream this past weekend, Chris Jericho stated that as of yet, former WWE referee Mike Cioda had not signed with AEW. Jericho also made it clear that Sadie Gibbs and Bea Priestley's recent releases were due to the fact that the company couldn't utilize them due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions and stated that he hoped they'd use their time away to continue to work and improve and that the company could use them when things get better in terms of international talent availability. Jericho also claimed a "NXT" reject that is now banned from working for AEW was responsible for word leaking about the Eric Bischoff surprise.
Private Party & SCU vs. The Lucha Brothers & The Butcher and The Blade.
