Cool Dad is a "name" being used to bring eyes to the company. As soon as they're established in a year, he fucks back off to his shitty band and WWE.

Kevin Owens is a legitimate badass and one of the toughest guys in wrestling. Jericho is not. He's such an old, out of shape slob. Big difference.

I'm not a AEW fan(not a hater either) but I'm just glad to see he is still healthy and can make a living doing what he is obviously still passionate about, and based on past actions he is definitely a guy that would eat a pin if it makes someone else look better for it, they are just establishing him as a big deal so that when he does lose to someone it is a big deal.

Wait Owens is a bad ass?? Why do you say that?? Jericho is well know for calling guys out and fighting guys who are twice his size?? Both Goldberg and lesnar have had to step to jericho

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Jericho take down Goldberg and also train in the hart dungeon which is one of the toughest places in wrestling?

Does that not prove his toughness credentials or were Bret and Lance storm severely downplaying the dungeon? And did he only beat goldberg to a standstill due to Goldberg being nice ?

The OP is more than likely a Smarkbusters Stan, and those two creeps always shat on the Dungeon. So you're wasting your time bringing it up as a way to prove Jericho's toughness.
Yeah, but Jericho took down Goldberg with ease and kept him down with ease as well.
I've never heard any stories about Kevin Owens being a legit tough guy.

The money is in the chase. Jericho's already talking a ton and giving himself all of the credit for how well they're doing. Give him the title, let his ego get worse and worse, and then let someone take the title off him. Throw in that he's the most recognizable name they have and it makes sense.

Jericho can get a fucking clipboard over with crowds, and the Japanese fans have been hot for him consistently.

He's still got it. Now long-term should they build around him, no of course not. But to start off with to get eyes on the product and then build someone else up to take him down, yeah sure.

Don't like it, don't watch. They seem to be doing pretty good business so far without your viewership
