I am a mega Havoc mark. Having Jimmy Havoc vs Jericho as your World title match for Full Gear would be dumb. Should Havoc get a title shot on TV? Sure but a PPV? Nah even as a massive mark for him, that makes no fucking sense. Cody Rhodes is unbeaten in singles action and has the best record. Jimmy is 1-0-2. He is also more known then Jimmy Havoc. The company said wins and losses matter. Cody has also put on a number of the best matches so far. He makes the most sense to fight Jericho and lose.

So now is about the time where you decide if you want a different wrestling product or if you want WWE lite.

WWE is the company that makes title matches on the basis of who has personal beef with the champion, rather than on the basis of who is the most credible challenger for the champion. WWE will just have Samoa Joe, who is a 50/50 jobber, beat down Kofi after a match and then boom, all of the sudden he's a title contender. No logic and no suspense because Joe has no credibility. That's how WWE "creates a match" through weeks of Will They/Won't They interactions and contrived personal beef

AEW will be the company where records matter. Cody has the best record right now. He's the most credible opponent, so they booked the match. That's how AEW "creates a match". Now Jericho and Cody have a REASON to start interacting and to let their personal feelings bubble to the surface over the course of the next few weeks of building. It's not just going to be some guy bumping into some other guy in the hallway and now they have a PPV match just because they had a personal interaction. The momentum and credibility of the competitors is what determines the matches and the personal animosity comes into focus AFTER the guys have a reason to fight.

To me, this is a breath of fresh air. We know what the title match is, we have a LOGICAL reason for it to be happening, it has continuity with the booking thus far and it gives the wrestlers an actual reason to develop a rivalry. It's closer to sport than soap opera. AEW always said that was the goal and y'all been acting like you wanted that.

Now we find out if you really do. Or if you're too used to the Vince McMahon formula
This. A thousand times this.

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

I’m ignoring about 5 trolls a day over here in AEW Land.

These clowns trying to shoot on AEW booking one of their 3 biggest stars in a title match is immediate grounds for ignoring.

My only question is I’m we’re to assume Jericho won’t have to defend his title until Full Gear? I’m intrigued.

He has an advertised title defense on the 3rd week on TV. I can see it being one of the mid-card boys getting the shot

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

it would be a bit silly to have the first aew title reign end so soon particularly if they want to attract casual viewers for tv

number 1 fan of The Face Of WWE alexa

Alexa Bliss - global megastar, Tag team Champion, future first ballot hall of famer and Undisputed SD and RAW champ. watch out becky, shes gonna take your crown.

Wouldn't it be cool to like build a rivalry and pay it off in a PPV match AFTER they debut on TV? I mean, I don't understand the dynamics of Mortal Kombat wrestling, but I would really like to know, if you don't mind.

Presumably theyll have 6 weeks to build more story into the match. That should be plenty of time.

Itd also be cool to have Cody embroiled in a blood feud with Spears or somebody else when his title shot comes up. Thatll alone will add more drama if Spears will interfere or not along with the heat theyll build between Jericho and Cody.

Multilayer these feuds and title shots.
