Same. Haven't watched weekly wrestling since Jericho left. I've given AEW a shot because of him and I've since become a fan of many of their other wrestlers

I'm sure OP will get back to you promptly about why you are totally not correct.

Except they aren't going for new fans currently. They are trying to get the old fans back. Everyone that has been a wrestling fan since about 96 will know who Chris Jericho is. WWE has lost about 3 mil fans tuning into Raw since the AE. They are the target.

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 ?
That was 16 years ago dude. I liked the Jericho of 2003. The Jericho of 2019 is a fucking joke. Kevin Owens is the future and is one of the best in the world right now.

nostalgia sells, that's why no-one minds Glacier or Dan Severn making cameos on the indy scene

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Pretty fkn obvious PR reasoning isn't it???

MAINSTREAM MARKETABILITY

Normal people who aren't wrestling marks actually know who he is....gives the company notoriety out the gates.

To answer ops question, Jericho isn't the focus, it's Omega. Jericho is there to get Kenny to a mainstream US audience and build the brand.
