Sammy Guevara's music hits and appears with a mic in hand.

Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara Come To An Agreement

Jericho gets up from the commentary desk, and Guevara says that the two of them are pissing each other off. Guevara says he's at the point where he wants to punch Jericho in the face, and Jericho shares that sentiment with him. Guevara says he wants to do it right now, and Jericho says they're getting on each other's nerves. He says that's okay because they're brothers, but they can't seem to get over their animosity. He says they need to get their frustrations out of their system and suggests they have a one-on-one match in order to set their sights on the AEW World Tag Team Championship. Guevara asks where he wants to do that, and Jericho suggests they do it at "AEW Dynamite" Grand Slam. Guevara agrees, and the pair shake hands before hugging.
