5 reasons Chris Jericho should become the first AEW World Champion
On 25 May, All Elite Wrestling presented its first show, Double Or Nothing, that emanated from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The show received tons of praise from fans and wrestling personalities, courtesy a packed card, an intense brawl between Cody Rhodes and Dustin Rhodes, and the shocking debut of Jon Moxley.
The show also saw Hangman Page become the #1 contender for the AEW World title by winning the Casino Battle Royale. The main event of the night ended with Chris Jericho defeating longtime nemesis, Kenny Omega, to earn a shot at the title.
AEW's next big show, All Out, is almost on the horizon. It will take place at the Sears Centre Arena in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates, Illinois, on August 31, 2019. Fans of the promotion have been speculating on who would end up becoming the first-ever AEW World Champion. Here are 5 reasons why Chris Jericho should be the one to get this honor.
#5 Another accomplishment Chris Jericho can boast about
Jericho is a WWE Grand Slam winner and the first Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He did the same by defeating The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin in one night and has been reminding the fans of this incredible feat ever since then. The entirety of Jericho's WWE career saw him mention this achievement on several occasions and receive great heel heat.
Jericho becoming the first-ever AEW World Champion will only give him another achievement to boast of, and he will make sure to remind the fans about it for years to come.
This will add another interesting layer to his heel character down the line, and the ones who defeat him in the future would benefit from the fact that they have put down the first-ever AEW World Champion.
