Re: Cody Rhodes to Challenge Chris Jericho for AEW Title at 'Full Gear'

Can someone tell me who the mainstays of their top title are? Jericho, Moxley, Hangman, Omega then who? MJF? Havok? Pac?

Tell your boyfriend if he even exists that he shouldn't trust you, because I'm stealing his bitch.

I actually think jericho will lose the belt at double or nothing 2 against omega because I would find it weird for them to pass the belt between two ex wwe guys. they will try to get omega over with his whole redemption arc and y2j will give him the rub.
Moxley will take the title from omega then
it will be Y2J -> Omega -> Moxley which looks definitely better than Y2J->>Moxley

So in theory Shawn Spears could have a 50% overall win record but if he beats a jobber one week, beats a solid midcarder the next week, beats a midcard title contender the next week and then maybe another contender with a strong win percentage the following week, then he should be in title contention

Stats don't have to "reboot" they should just have a recency bias
There's no indication that he would choose an MMA format over a football one. It would make it harder to understand in the long run. Which would spawn more threads like this and even worse for casual fans who don't take part in the IWC to get clued in. Realistically, the records should start over after AEW's equivalent to Mania/Wrestle Kingdom. It would also make those events more meaningful as your guys have start over so they better make it count.

Re: Cody Rhodes to Challenge Chris Jericho for AEW Title at 'Full Gear'

I mean all the EVPs were going to hold belts at some point. It shouldn't be seen as an issue unless it's a constant thing and they're not putting anybody over but themselves.

As far as keeping official records, I think that goes away before they complete a year of TV. It's needless and it's going to end up handicapping them at some point in the stories they can tell.

It's a good match, but I don't get why they are announcing it this soon. They should have waited to build it at the TV show. Isn't Jericho still supposed to defend the title in the 3rd TNT episode?

It'll be interesting to see how this works when these stats really start piling up. A guy that gets too far behind could potentially never get a shot. And a guy that's too far ahead might be seen ad nauseum. Hopefully the stats reboot at a certain point. With Tony's football background, I could see that happening.

Anyway, I sincerely doubt Cody wins.
I'm betting they'll tie records to the calendar year (2019 record: 3-2) or perhaps divide things into seasons, like (and I know this is using WWE) WrestleMania-SummerSlam and SummerSlam-WrestleMania.

Agreed. They can always play the subject to change card, but I feel like they should have waited. Of course I think tickets just went on sale today for Full gear, so they’re obviously just trying to drum up interest.

If you think about it, it had to be Mosley or Cody. I don’t know why anyone has an issue with this. Why does it matter that he’s the EVP? He, Omega, and the Bucks are all obviously going to have significant runs there. Makes no sense to have criticism of it.

Re: Cody Rhodes to Challenge Chris Jericho for AEW Title at 'Full Gear'

Cody makes sense. There's been tension between them already and Jericho has already beaten three of his Elite buddies, which I think is a storyline being set up Plus Cody is their most over babyface right, and he has the best W/L record right now to.

I don't expect him to win though.

Re: Cody Rhodes to Challenge Chris Jericho for AEW Title at 'Full Gear'

To be honest, I really have no problem with this.

So Cody is having a title match. What's the issue? It doesn't guarantee that he's going to beat Jericho and it doesn't guarantee that he's going to become this power-hungry man in charge to suit this Triple H and Steph comparison that people keep slapping on him and Brandi.

It's probably a big chance that happens, but I feel like sometimes you have to watch things casually to fully see how things play out. It can be difficult to do when the majority of members on the forum are wised up to the in's and out's of how wrestling works but if you take it down to its simplest form; would he not just be playing a good heel?

Eliminate the fact that he's actually a face right now and you've got a match set for Jericho's first-ever title defence against somebody who is currently undefeated. I'm sure almost everybody is going to disagree with me or suggest that I'm not looking at this logically, being shallow/stupid etc. but wrestling is and always has been very simple.

Good guy versus bad guy and their job is to give you a reason to give a shit and pay money to see it.
