Re: What is the appeal in having Jericho be the focus of AEW in 2019?
Name recognition for a starting promotion is really important and Jericho gives AEW that.
But he's not in this position (of probably being their first champ and one of their main fixtures) only because of name recognition. He's almost 50 but remains an incredible character, great on the mic and can still go in the ring. He's not some washed up veteran on his last legs, he's still an amazing talent.
If they're smart, they'll give him a lengthy run while preparing young talent to take the company to take them to another level in the near future.
