    Y’all think this could ever compete with WWE? Not sorta compete, I mean like 96-98 WCW compete.

    Is Jericho one of the top 5 of all time? And can he become the GOAT if he carries AEW to legitimate success?

    According to Dave in this weeks Observer, the Bucks turned a deal from WWE for AJ Styles level money that would have given them the option to leave after 6 months if they were unhappy with their push

    Dude, I think he is the GOAT, at least for the last thirty or so years from what I've seen. Unbelievable promo across various characters, Great matches in ECW/WCW/WWE/New Japan with like a 21 year gap between his classics there. Got over in Mexico, Canada, and other Japanese companies without TV. A top draw for the mainstream fans in All Elite. 48 years old and having among his best matches. Has some b-----r modern rock songs, comes off as a superstar in every non wrestling venture he's involved himself in. If not him, for me, it's a tossup between AJ and Shawn, with AJ probably getting the edge.

    The production of that All Elite Rally kinda s----d, but watching Cody/Brandi/Jericho made me realize that this group of people have an aura around them that would be impossible not to impress TV people. They come off as major stars, Hangman as well.

    The worldwide infrastructure of WWE is just too big to tackle in any conceivable amount of time, but as far as vying for ratings that's in the realm of possibility now. Guys (esp Jericho) wouldn't be signing for multi year contracts if they weren't guaranteed that these TV deals being offered weren't major. The goal here is to create something that lasts forever.

    We just gotta hope they can get the kids/teenagers and bring old fans back. We can only draw so much from the 50 year old's who watch Raw every week. If it has major league production (which it will) on a big station, who knows who it'll attract.

    Idk man for me there is a lot of longetivity in wrestling that hasn’t amounted to quality and while Jericho is still putting on good s--- wrestling isn’t like a sport where it’s impressive to have a a lot of career points, wrestling is for entertainment and how good you can be and at least in my opinion there are a lot of people who have had better runs than he has

    We need a smiley of both those Jericho faces, and at least one from his goofy long hair days

    This was such a brilliant move by WWE, even though it didn't work.
    They would either:
    A. Push the s--- out of the Bucks by bringing them in with an Invasion angle...then after 6 months, once the angle was run it's course, do whatever they want with them because the contract was already been renewed.
    B. Bring them in as big stars, push them for 3 months, but the second they sense The Bucks are starting to get unhappy and will probably leave anyway...just beat them over and over again and use them to get other talent over for the remaining 3 months.

    Can totally see WWE doing one of those two things lol
    So glad they didn't even take the chance of going there for even 6 months.

    Cody said that he signed four more people to AEW in a very recent interview. I wonder who they could be.
