To be honest AEW, “you had me at Jericho & Omega Interrupted an Indie show in Georgia last night”. This got me interested, and no I wasn’t that into a Jericho-Omega rematch. Now they have my attention with this one and maybe we’re going to be treated to a good solid build. The Young Bucks and Lucha Bros has been great. They’ve attacked each other multiple times and this was already a SuperFight and
now has really good heat behind it. As far as the Cody-Dustin
Rhodes thing I’m hoping Jon Moxley interrupts it. Or really anyone else, but

The Main Event now gets more interesting and I hope Jericho doesn’t soften up on his podcast so I get to remain in Kayfabe Land for a couple more weeks. One thing about Y2J is even when you hear him on the podcast his heel transformations are so complete you can separate the two. One is the podcast host/Fozzy Lead Singer and the other is this latest Heel character which may be his best at damn near 50. He is without a doubt one of the greatest wrestlers in history and his heel characters don’t disappoint.
Kenny Omega is a terrific talent and was ranked #1 in the PWI 500 when he was the IWGP Champion last year, and now will be under a larger spotlight than ever before in New Japan. How will he perform not just May 25th, but going forward? Some pundits thought his IWGP Title run was less than spectacular sans Pro Wrestling Illustrated, so a great run against Jericho will not only push AEW as they go to Television in the fall but also to prove that Omega can is a Number One on a big stage. Make no mistake about it the “One-Winged Angel” is the Top Guy with AEW but his opponent wants to prove that he is too. There were many critics of Jericho’s WrestleMania match with Kevin Owens *raises hand quietly in the back hoping he isn’t seen. One of them was Vincent Kennedy McMahon which we all witnessed to Owens’ chagrin on his 24/7 show on the WWE Network. One reason I believe Jericho joined AEW was to prove to any doubters that he’s still one of the best. Maybe the WWE Chairman is one of them.
