5 AEW Wrestlers With the Best Chance to Dethrone Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho has been Le Champion in All Elite Wrestling since All Out, reigning for over 90 days so far, and all the challenges that have come his way (Cody, Darby Allin, Scorpio Sky) have fallen short. So, the question that needs to be answered is: can anyone touch The G.O.A.T.?
With the Big Hurt, Proud and Powerful, and Sammy Guevara by his side, that seems unlikely to happen anytime soon. But, heading into 2020, someone is bound to step up and finally succeed in taking that beautiful title from him.
The AEW roster is quite intriguing, and while a challenger may come from outside of the company (looking at you Marty Scurll and Brian Cage!), right now, we are going to take a look at the current crop of contenders. From former WWE stars to World Champions to repeat challengers, there's plenty of talent in AEW right now, and the following five have the best chance to dethrone Le Champion in 2020:
#5 Adam Page
Hangman Page lost the AEW Championship match to Chris Jericho back at All Out. Despite a win over PAC, he hasn't been the same since, and it looks bad for The Elite. Over the past few weeks, Page has left the group as he wants something more. Looking at all the tools he has at his disposal, this may be for the better since he could be challenging for the title once again.
Page is a star on the rise for sure, and he has all the makings of a World Champion. But, he needs to find that something special before he topples Jericho. We have a strong feeling that Page will be achieving the something special he desires in the coming year.
Because of his loses to Jericho (one) and PAC (two), he is down on the ladder right now, but if striking out on his own can pick up his momentum, we may see a full circle story that sees Hangman be the one to finally dethrone Le Champion some time in 2020.
