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

What the Hell is with all the low effort shitters showing up now?

Gotta pad out that ignore list.

Yeah Cody is such a bad choice for a main event. He's only worshiped as Wrestling Jesus by the attending crowd, after all.

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

Cody is one of the few guys who deserve gold at this point

People will always shit on it for AEWWE / HHH / Jeff Jarrett / WCW reasons - but Cody is gold at this point.

He can and should be champ at some point as one of the most over guys on the roster

My NEW FREE game Pop The Cork is now available on Android

It is the BETA version, so please let me know what you think! Thanks!!

Cody doesn't draw. He just placed himself in the main event of Full Gear, and this is by far the lowest ticket demand they've had for a PPV yet.

He main evented FFTF, and had the benefit of having Jericho on the show to help boost the viewership, yet it still drew fewer viewers than Fyter Fest.

You shouldn't live inside of a bubble. There's a much bigger audience out there than the few thousand that cheered for Cody at All Out, and none of them give two shits about him.

HHH had every right to book himself as a main eventer, because he was one of the biggest draws of the 2000s.

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

In terms of the win/loss records, just reset them every year. Like in terms of football, you can say "Cody had a 25-34 record in the 2019 season and so far he has 5-1 beginning in the 2020 season". Like how you would do it for football. I think that would be the most ideal.

I have no issues with Cody challenging Jericho at Full Gear for the AEW World title. He has the best win/loss singles record and if these records are to matter, then Cody is clearly the number one contender (even if Moxley and Omega weren't busy). Cry "politics and glad-handing" all you want, and I don't doubt down the road that will be an issue, but Cody is arguably the most over babyface in the promotion next to Moxley and Omega. You don't think Jericho is going to use his EVP and Elite status as a focal point to this build? He has already beaten Page and Omega of the Elite to win the title and now he faces the public figurehead of the entire company. This story is going to be really good and some of you geeks will find a way to still follow it while moving the goalposts.

It's been your M.O. for months now, why stop now?

Double turn incoming. Jericho is now beloved for the stupid bubbly shit and Cody is better as a heel. Good booking marks.

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

Cody and Jericho have had a feud simmering for some time now (see older "Road to..." videos), and eventually it was going to come to this. I don't understand this hate for Cody, Omega and the Bucks. If nobody cared about them, the WWE wouldn't have tried to sign them.

I think it's going to be a great main event, as both of these guys can tell stories inside and outside the ring. Maybe "Full Gear" will be the big moment when MJF finally shows his true colors and turns on Cody.

Cody Jarrett is one of the fucking owners of the company and he booked himself into a main event match. That's not okay whatsoever. Fuck this guy.

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

do wrestling fans really have zero long term wrestling logic ? Cody is giving himself a shot now because he aint getting one again any time soon. They are creating big storylines that are going to drive heels and faces and stables.

Ooh, original. Go with Hunter Rhodes Helmsley next. I'm sure that one's a winner.

I can tell you haven't been watching/following AEW, let alone understand the structure of how contenders work here if that is your actual conclusion to this. Didn't matter if it happened at Full Gear, next year or five years from now. You would have come to this same conclusion.

Low tier bait is low tier.
