AEW Championship: Chris Jericho v Jon Moxley
The two biggest signings in the brief history of All Elite Wrestling are going head-to-head in the main event of the first PPV of 2020, AEW Revolution. Chris Jericho was the banner signing when the company launched at a press conference just over a year ago and Jon Moxley then made his debut at the end of the very first PPV a few months later, coming out of the crowd to end months of speculation as to whether or not he would be the first WWE superstar to cross over to the upstart company. Jericho, of course, was crowned the first ever world champion and his run as ‘Le Champion’ and leader of the ‘Inner Circle’ faction has been one of the highlights of the company’s brief existence. His ability to reinvent himself so frequently, and so successfully, is pretty remarkable and there is still plenty more mileage left in his title run so I would not be surprised to see him leave Revolution with the gold still around his waist. But on the flip side, the capture of Moxley from the WWE was a huge moment for AEW and he will undoubtedly be a leading figure within the company for many years to come. He will certainly become champion at some point, but I am not so sure that this will be the night. A long reign for Jericho would firmly establish a title that is not even one year old yet and it is not like the champion’s reign is going stale. He is having great matches with a variety of opposition and segments involving him and the ‘Inner Circle’ tend to be some of the best on the show. And if you look at the roster, there is a lack of top heel characters that can line up to challenge Moxley if he were to be champion. Therefore it makes sense for Jericho to leave with the golf, with some nefarious antics from his ‘Inner Circle’ running mates likely to play a role in the finish. Whatever the outcome, these two men are likely to serve up one of the best and most entertaining matches wrestling sees all year – it should be good enough for Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Oberserver to award it 4.5 stars out of 5. The fact it is not taking place inside the Tokyo Dome will prevent it from getting a perfect score (if you are familiar with the ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast with Bruce Prichard you will get that insider reference. If you are not familiar with it and you are wrestling fan, you should get familiar with it!).
