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.

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

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.

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? :mj4

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

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.

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.

Dont quit your day job boys

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.

He's booking himself to lose to Jericho, after already booking himself to lose to the Bucks and draw with a complete nobody. Fuck me, the internet sure do like to bitch.

Who would you rather Jericho face? Cody is a good first defence for him. He's retaining and will drop the belt to Moxley. I'm willing to bet Cody won't get the belt for at least 2 years.

You can't be an owner and a main event player at the same time. It doesn't matter what their win/loss structure is, Cody putting himself in the main event isn't fair to all the hard working men and women that are busting their asses to help get AEW over. This is the kind of shit that crippled TNA for years and it's bullshit regardless what company does it. I'm not singling AEW out here.

Cody vs Jericho should be a great match and build but is hurt by this perception Jericho is a long term champ for AEW. They have 7 weeks of tv or so to build up some doubt though

Sorry, but that's stupid thinking. Cody, Kenny and the Bucks are EVPs, and they also are four of the premier performers on the roster. To exclude any of them simply because they're in management is just silly.

Cody, Kenny and the Bucks were the reasons I was drawn to AEW in the first place.

Cody is either going to be the AEW golden face that is going to save AEW from a evil heel stable that is forming in the next few months that will drag on for a few years. Or he will play good guy for a while and turn heel in a few years himself fucking over another heel winning the belt.


Either way that is like 2 years away. Enjoy the show bitches ! 4 more weeks



People also bitched cus Kenny has booked himself to lose every match. So funny the internet lol

I know they did this because they think it will help selling tickets to the event since they started selling them today, but I wish they kinda promote it as "Cody will challenge the AEW title at Full Gear" since I think they promoted at least one title defense on tv between now and the PPV (I think in the 3rd or 4th show). I mean, I know it is very unlikely that the title changes hands on tv, but still, at least pretend that whoever will challenge Jericho has a chance

Dusty did. Vince did. Jarrett did. It's not about who you are but how it is done when it comes to winning the World title while also being an executive for the company. This is pro wrestling. The "territorial" mindset has been in existence for decades. AEW didn't start that trend, nor will it stop if AEW goes by the wayside.

Again, you haven't been paying attention. Cody has had the best singles record in the company where wins and losses matter. Moxley hasn't had a win or loss yet and Omega is on the losing end (albeit designed that way). Cody was not only a safe choice but the right choice as well. You don't even know if he's winning it from Jericho come November (which I doubt he will anyways and this is to assure a strong main event title match along with Mox/Omega). And LOL @ Cody "not busting his ass" when he's had the most consistent performance from anybody in the Elite so far.

Get out of this WWE/WCW mindset and realize AEW is different in terms of how they are going to promote themselves on a mainstream level. The sooner you do, the less you'd have to reach to be upset.

Cody isn't winning it. Either Spears or MJF cost him the match. The Reign of Jericho will continue into 2020.

Moxley would be the right guy to take the title off Jericho.

Cody Jarrett has the best singles record in the company because he's booking himself to win the most. He's the 2019 version of Triple HGH. It doesn't matter if he wins or loses in November, he shouldn't be in the match period. It's selfish and it's a pathetic display of power tripping. They should have used these last few shows like All In and DON to build some new stars and have them compete against Jericho but no, Cody Jarrett's got the power and he's gotta fucking give himself that main event $$$.

Unless you have a direct source to the AEW backstage area or were there yourself, I'm going to have to call Bravo Sierra on your first assumption.

If you don't understand how AEW are going to structure their matches to where they mean something in terms of match records and actual contenders, then there is nothing to discuss. Who should have challenged Jericho for the title at the PPV, if not Cody, if we are going by those dimensions? Hell, I'll even let you have Omega and Moxley as being free to challenge.

Exactly. Cody was the right choice. Him being an executive does not take away the fact that he's the rightful number one contender going by the match records so far. Hell, Jericho is probably going to bring up your inane points in the story as a reason why Cody is getting the title shot so they're going to end up making it a focal point that benefits them after the announcement. See how it works?

I'll also ask you this. Is Cody (or anyone from the Elite, for that matter) allowed to challenge and/or win a title in AEW?
