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



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



And so it begins...

Cody is the guy who has been front and center for all AEW announcements, all AEW promotional events, and the guy acting as the "leader" of the company. Having THAT guy challenge for your World Title just isn't a good look, no matter how you try to spin it.

I'm not gonna pitch a fit yet. We pretty much knew that as soon as Cody went over Spears.

If he wins the belt though....

Sucks that he's gonna be the first guy to lay down for Jericho. I doubt they'd switch the title so quickly.

Highly doubt he is, Jericho is in the twilight of his career, and doing better stuff than ever, you give him a quality reign until Moxley takes it off of him in early 2020, that is literally the ONLY option.

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

Cody has the best win loss record. They said from the beginning that this is how they were doing it. It cuts out having to have useless #1 contender matches. If people want a shot they need to stop sucking.

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.

Nah I think it's more like MMA where it's less about the permanent record and more about what you're doing right now. A guy could lose 10 fights here and there over the course of his run and have like a 11-10 record but then if he goes on a streak of 5 big wins and he knocks out Ngannou, Dos Santos, Overeem and Cormier along the way then he's DEFINITELY in title contention

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

They need to realize they will have a TV show before the next PPV and quit announcing main event matches on Twitter.

Yes. Having one of your most recognisable stars and most over babyface challenge for the title is a bad look. What on earth are you on about!
