Opinion: What happened this week on Dynamite was a very cool moment and felt like AEW was actually making a star. That isn’t something you see very often and you certainly don’t see it happen with someone like Jericho. They did something cool this week and it wound up being a special moment. Now just follow up on the idea and see how far you can take the whole thing.
