Which was my point when people started saying Moxley was a huge draw, I said no we dont know. Because we cant use his wwe feats. Which were basically the wwe brand drawing the events.
How was that difficult to understand? I dont know. At this point even cody is proved a draw. No matter how small he draws, as for someone like moey we cant know YET because we cant take the wwe drawing and attributing it to a star.( except guys like the rock stone cold or cena).
And AEW is following the wwe path, its the idea, the concept of aew and the way they present themselves that draws. ( plus the period we are in)
If the discussion was about who would be a better champion, from a business perspective, then the correct answer would be Jericho followed by Moxley. These are the two that would bring a much bigger following with them than anyone else on the roster, by a wide margin. The people in charge seem to be well aware of this. If they thought making Omega the champion right off the bat would have been a profitable idea, they would have put him over Jericho, since he's younger.

Omega will be a champion, for sure, but from a business standpoint, it makes much more sense to first put the title on the guys with the much bigger fanbases. Omega will be built up in the meantime.

the initial plan according to Dave was to make omega their first ever aew champion after him beating pac. But the pac thing made it go woosp.
And I fundamentally disagree putting the title on every wwe guy that were in the wwe main event first because"well they are stars" is tna level of bullshit. And I stand by this even if they do it. From a business perspective building future stars and not relying on ex wwe guys' popularity is the way to go. Which they are perfectly doing by putting y2j against a young lion in Page. Then what if another big wwe guy like balor comes they also put the title on him next because "lol he was already popular in wwe"? M'yeah thank you
Long term booking creating stars is the way, dont put the title on people just because they were wwe guys one after the other, in a short term business perspective that the good way. Long term? I dont think so
If y2j is the first champion putting the title on Moxley next is basically putting the title on every big wwe guys that you have, so no I wouldn't support that and it would be very tna-like for me.
But if y2j isnt the first champion, then putting the title on Moxley next is a no brainer then. Thinking long term is the way they should go for me.

yeah in other words put the title on every ex wwe main eventer you have. Isnt that the same shit people crap on tna for doing?
From a business perspective build you own star quickly. Omega hangman and mjf are their non-wwe guys that have main event written all over them with omega already being a main event name. Building them as fast as possible and putting the title on them is the way. Not throwing your title on every wwe guy because "they have a big fanbase" you write to create new stars not to make the fanbase of an ex wwe guy happy because their favourite who was mistreated is now champ
I still think giving your top title to two wwe guys back to back is a terrible idea.

There's only two ex-WWE guys, and they actually happen to be great. It's not like we're talking about 10 ex-WWE guys with no talent and putting the title on them just because they were in WWE. It makes sense, when you're trying to get a new promotion off the ground, to feature your biggest stars above everyone else. You build new stars by first securing a large audience, and then having your established stars putting over the other guys.

If we were talking about someone like PAC, then I wouldn't even make him champion at all. Ever. Regardless of the fact that he was in WWE.

It makes sense, when you're trying to get a new promotion off the ground, to feature your biggest stars above everyone else. You build new stars by first securing a large audience, and then having your established stars putting over the other guys.
and to build new stars you dont need to put the title on the wwe guys. Again, if you want to put the title on Moxley give it to hangman who then beat y2j and then you send Moxley to haunt his fucking soul into the abyss to take the title. He is a tweener he can do both heel and face.
If you put the title on y2j, let omega do the chase, they have an history together and then end their trilogy.
There is only 2 wwe guys and putting the title on the two of them back to back prove exactly that you are just doing tna writing. You only have two of them and you immediately start putting your title on wwe guys only, it's a very bad look.
When you want to create stars, you do it immediately you dont put your titles on wwe guys first and then when you are done putting your title on the wwe guys you have then start to use it to hype your homegrown guy.
That's my point, doing a Moxley vs y2j is pretty meh. Either Moxley vs hangman or y2j vs omega at least for me.
Dont start sending that all rotten tna message all over again.

Jericho on the mic unhinged overrides pretty much anything ive heard in the last year on the mic from any talent of that other big company.

Basically at 1 million views, with Jericho as the featured part of the video. AEW’s highest viewed video.

But again while I don't think Jericho is a bad addition to the roster. I don't think he's going to draw enough to justify him possibly being first champ. I think it'll be similar to Brock now, where he's not really the draw he's talked up to be.

I mean we all know Truth isn't on the same level as Jericho as a star, yet his videos with the 24/7 title are multiple times bigger. That's why too me it just makes more sense to come out the gate with Omega vs Moxley for the title with Moxley winning since nobody is a substantial draw. Or hell in hindsight maybe even having Jericho vs Omega 2 for the title at DoN and using that as a notch in Kenny's belt.

Yeah Moxley vs Omega for the title would certainly have been better. Thing is they only signed Moxley about a month before the PPV I believe so maybe they were hesitant to change the outcomes so close to the PPV?

I think that would've been the perfect change when PAC dropped out.

Moxley vs Omega is a better match, but Jericho vs Page for the title feels right. Especially if the plan is to have Jericho becoming the first champion.

Jericho as heel champion brings many possibilities. The chase for the title would be very interesting with him holding the title.
