Re: What is the appeal in having Jericho be the focus of AEW in 2019?
Omega ABSOLUTELY should not have been the first champion. The money in Omega is in the chase, and that chase should be built up through television. Omega was at his hottest during his 2 year IWGP title chase in New Japan, and it kind of mellowed out after he won the title(not to say his reign was bad, but definitely not as epic as the chase).
Jericho should win the title, fuck the talk of him being old and washed up, his character work is top notch, and he still is having good matches, guys like Undertaker, Goldberg, Batista even Triple H these days are washed up. Jericho's body of work over the last 18 months has been incredible, the match against Omega, the matches against Naito, Omega match at DoN was good too. The Okada match wasn't amazing, but it was still good.
