Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show
Jericho is fine in his spot. It puts the focus on a man that people know. Jericho also has a reputation that proceeds him for being good, regardless of his age. It also lends credence to his gimmick of constantly evolving and getting better like fine wine. There's a Shawn Michaels/Ric Flair quality to him. If you're going to have Jericho floating around, you need to make him a top issue, because otherwise then he is just an old guy. They also don't have a bunch of old guys and have surrounded him with a young guy, a vicious tag team and a hoss that is doing well for himself in MMA.
