Your credibility was already ruined on the second and third sentence but anyhow you do realize that most of the talent in the AEW roster is still young and in their Prime right? Btw...since u want to speak about older people I think the other company that you're probably also fan of has way many older people that are headlining and hogging up. How about young grey haired Shane o Mac? Or them 2 youngsters who recently headlined of Goldberg vs Taker? Anyhow, age isnt an issue persay..it varies person to person. Flair still had some descent shit even within a decade or so ago. Jericho could do promo circles in his sleep around many of today's younger stars.

AEW has had ONE SHOW.

Seriously, at least wait until they are on TNT and have a lengthy run before you make judgement calls.

Nah, with 'judgment calls' like he's already made, he should just stop making them altogether.

In-ring Jericho is running at 60%, outside of that .. he's running at 100%.

WRASTLEMANIA 35
Return of the RABID WOLVERINE!



Bah GAWD ALMIGHTY! It's him!!!

Although Brock Lesnar's "Go to hell tour" might be coming to a close; we still have the decade strong, Vince McMahon's "Go fuck yourself" tour to look forward to.

They've had two shows and a third one already announced.

If I'm new to wrestling and I see an old, fat, drunken, slob as the centerpiece of the company, more than likely I'm not going to be interested. Jericho should be not be in a top position in AEW. It's that simple.

Jericho is the main reason why I started to get interest in AEW. By the way, he is the best heel in the whole wrestling world right now.

AEW sold out All Out in 15 minutes with Jericho in the main event so you're in the minority when it comes to not being interested.

Nobody is saying Jericho should be the main guy for the long term but he is legitimising AEW in the eyes of the casual fan, and in the eyes of TV executives. No TV Channel is bending over backwards for a wrestling show in a prime spot featuring Kenny Omega as the main guy, or else NJPW would have had bigger success when they began making in roads in America. But a wrestling show with Kenny as a top guy featuring Jericho is going to be in demand, made clear with the early successes AEW is having.

Jericho matches with Kenny,Naito and Okada blows any WWE Main Roster match from the past 5 years. So yeah, it's a bait.

WWE's FOTC is a woman who calls herself "the man".

And speaking about Jericho. He is not the FOTC. He is the main villain. And that's the great thing.

Who will be AEW's FOTC? The guy who beats Chris Jericho.

Jericho is their biggest name. He'll bring in more fans than anyone else they have, so makes perfect sense for him to be first champion.
