Lance Archer, or Brodie Lee, can come into the picture immediately wrecking shop and earn a title shot. Their size would make for a huge selling point and gives credibility to Mox possibly losing, even if we all know that isn’t likely.

Or maybe Jericho actually fucking wins, and they have been working every single one of us just get back to where this all began with Alpha vs Omega III.
I can't see Moxley losing clean they built him up too strong for that and fans are too behind him. Only way I see Moxley losing if say Lance Archer cost him the match and Moxley hell bent on getting revenge. That he moves on from Jericho and title picture.

That said whole Page/Omega stuff seems to part of a long build story. Once they have falling out officially and feud. It doesn't feel like they would do that blow off match on tv. It almost feels like that's leading to a Double or Nothing match. I could see something like this..


1.Moxley/Jericho gimmick match
2.Page/Omega
3.Cody/Brodie Lee with Arn?
4.Casino Battle Royal number 1 contender for All Out with MJF, Pac, Lance Archer, Darby Allin etc
5.Young Bucks vs Dark Order

I didn’t mean Omega and Jericho at DoN per se. Just that they may have Jericho slated to go over Moxley. It would definitely add prestige to the title and make AEW more of the Wild West where you never know what the fuck is going to happen.

Moxley winning now or in 3 months is “predictable”. I can see Moxley, Cody, Jericho, Omega, and all of them sitting in the back having a laugh at how well they put a swerve on the community. It’s a risky swerve that could seriously pay off if they handled it correctly.

But yeah, my preference is to have Mox win it all here. I don’t like risking the backlash of pissing off the fans.

Yeah we all seen backlash WWE gets when not pulling the trigger on a hot guy. Moxley the guy with live audience and with ratings etc. Plus AEW been booking him like their Cena/Reigns. But unlike those guys fans actually want Moxley to win.


So if he doesn't win title it would be a swerve but a bad one. Predictable can be good in wrestling if story is leading people there and it's what people want.


While Jericho was great first champion. But I also think he can be very valuable in non champion role. For example Jericho only had six singles matches In AEW. In Omega, Hangman, Darby, Cody, Scorpio Sky and Jungle Boy. With Darby and Sky not really deserving to be in title matches. While next week will be Moxley 5th AEW singles match in 2020 already. So not being the champion will allow Jericho to work with a lot more wrestlers. Plus it doesn't have to be his last title reign either.

Hard to see what you can do with a guy like Jericho not in the title picture, though. You run the risk of his presence overshadowing the title scene.

Will take some creativity.

It all depends on who's in title picture and what Jericho doing. Remember All Out main event of Jericho/Page didn't feel bigger then Moxley/Omega. Before Moxley got hurt that match was overshadowing Jericho title match.


Sure if Jericho vs Omega or Cody then it could feel bigger then say Moxley vs Archer or Brodie Lee or Pac. Or maybe even Page but i think Page is more over now then he was in August. But that's also why they shouldn't hot shot Archer or Lee into title picture too soon. Or even Brian Cage as well. Let them get over for 4 or 5 months first. Before you put them in title picture.

I mean.... I’m on board with Alpha / Omega 3

I’m in the camp of ‘Not time for Mox yet’ - get him more over by screwing him massively somehow

don’t know how.... but somehow.

Mox should be taking it off Kenny after an epic reign - the Story is there

Putting the title on Omega before Moxley would be a nice way to demolish whatever moment the company has.

You need guys who are actually over at the top. There's no one more over than Moxley.

Hey look, wouldnt it be better if they've 'played it safe' and put title on Mox at Revolution(as something we all expect them to do) and make the swerve later. Now, there are a lot of speculations about how the Omega/Page situation will go. As of now Hangman is getting over with his shtick so why turn him heel, he should stay face imo. Lets make Omega swerve Mox out of the title at DoN. It makes sense because Omega can't be a face champion now(same as Cody) and Hangman is too hot to go bad. It can be done as Hangman being angry at Omega for being 'fake' and swerving Mox and It will make sense cause you further develop conflict between Mox and Omega, keep Hangman face so he can turn on his friend because of what he did, build Omega as a star in The US and then build a comeback story for Mox to make his revenge.

Wonder if they run war games here or wait until All Out. Probably wait as I think there's too many feuds to blow off like Cody/MJF and Page/Omega once they split before then.

Where’s the best place to get AEW tickets? Ticketmaster or AEWtix.com? Any other suggestions?

I was in at 11:01 for the pre-sale and the code didn't work. Must've sold out. Insane.

I actually was able to get back in later and snag floor seats. I can't believe it.

I'm coming around to the possibility of Moxley not winning at Revolution. But that would just lead to Moxley vs Jericho II at DoN II to bring it all full circle in a way as Mox debuted there last year attacking Jericho.

My card would look something like -

Moxley vs Jericho(c) II
Omega vs Hangman
Cody vs PAC
Nyla(c) vs Statlander
Bucks(c) vs Lucha Brothers vs Ortiz/Santana (The Revival attack afterwards)
Hager vs Luchasaurus
MJF w/Wardlow vs Scorpio Sky w/Kazarian

Pre-show Casino Battle Royale(mens and womens) for future title shots.

Under that circumstance I'd probably go Moxley vs Hager at DoN II with Hager having had played an instrumental role in Jericho retaining at Revolution.
100% my thoughts too

Giving Jake his first loss maybe.

I got back in as well, but with small children, 5 and 9, I opted for seats just off the floor to make sure they could see.

But holy shit. I’m fucking pumped. Can’t wait to give little man his Valentine’s gift.
promise me you’ll cheer Cody just this once :D
