I can’t decide if making Jericho the first champ is TNA or not. I don’t think Adam Page is the guy tho.
I think Page is really good but I would like to see Jericho as 1st Champ just because of all he’s done. I’m ok either way, but he’s still wrestling big matches in Japan, won’t be around forever, and as far as title histories go, that’s a nice first name.
I can see Jericho winning the title on PPV, then dropping it to Page on TV. Then Jericho can feud with Moxley while Page feuds with Omega.
I feel like Cody/Jericho is probably gonna be the headliner for the next PPV after All Out.
rather see Cody Jericho than any rehashed WWE feuds. I think Cody is more apt to carry a 50 yr old Jericho (that looked like 2019 Axl Rose@ the AEW PPV) than Moxley is. I’m a fan of all four of these guys by the way, just not excited for Jericho and Moxley again. They also have to have matches like Cody v Darby Allin to elevate the new guys. Once people see Darby Allins fearlessness & heart or see MJF crapping on their heroes, new stars are born & exciting match ups can take place.

And the show sold out in 15:00. They've done that three times in less than a year without actually having an episode of TV air. Double or Nothing has done around 100k buys without actually having an episode of TV air.

AEW is doing great no doubt. Having no TV right now is both a curse and a blessing. One problem current wrestling has is filling weekly programming and often monthly PPVs. That tends to lead to burnout and match ups are ran thru including multiple matches of the same match up. One thing AEW has going for it is a lot of fresh talent not seen much on TV if at all. The key for AEW is to keep up this buzz and fever a year or more after they debut on TV.
I think the big thing for the weekly TV show is gonna be if they can cut all the goofy bullshit out like cigarettes being stapled to people's heads and keeping the Michael Nakazawa stuff to a bare minimum. The company is gonna have to introduce basically all of these wrestlers to a new audience who probably only really know who Jericho, Cody, Goldust and Moxley are. They claim they're gonna be more sports oriented and I don't know how you balance that with the stuff they did in the battle royal. Like you really can't have this both ways. If they figure it out, or if Cody winds up being the one to emerge as having the most creative power, they should be good. If the Bucks or Kenny emerge as the ones with the most power, well...at least we had wrestling on TNT for a little while again.
