AEW Dynamite's debut was a success. The show attracted 1.409 million total viewers across 2 hours. There were some botches, but overall, the show delivered. Dynamite had fast-paced action, a new AEW Women's Champion was crowned, MJF continued his winning streak, and there was a shocking debut by former WWE World Champion Jack Swagger aka Jake Hager.

The beauty of the show was that it was simplistic in its presentation. There was wall-to-wall action with little intervals for the crowd to catch their breath. Yet, the show went along at a good clip and didn't seem to do anything to bore viewers. There was something going on all the time.

Perhaps, the biggest moment of the night came towards the end of the show, which seemed organic and never felt forced. Everything seemed real and worked together to make sense of the current storyline. The arrival of Jake Hager certainly received the required effect it wanted from the crowd and the viewers at home.

The result was a new heel stable, which undoubtedly left fans excited in the weeks to come. Here are 5 reasons why Chris Jericho's new AEW heel stable will be a ratings draw.

There is a lot to like about this new stable. Cody and Brandi Rhodes have spoken in interviews about the importance of diversity being an essential part of their company. With Chris Jericho's new stable, fans get exactly that.

Sammy Guevara is the young upstart and Cuban-American. Santino and Ortiz are the possibly the best tag team in the world and are of Puerto-Rican descent. Chris Jericho is the grizzled veteran from Canada and practically the Ric Flair of the group. Hager is an outspoken Trump supporter in real-life and his debut established him as the enforcer of the group.

In a sense, the group has something to offer for everyone.
