wwe creative had nothing to do with this, it was ALL jericho
Everyone expected tons of things from him and he gave the crowd nothing.
I think in this sentence you sum up how successful it was. He is the perfect heel for the IWC generation.
I'd ask everyone to watch the promo again, watch his face change just before he drops the mic and the comic way he mocks the audience, as Beserker suggests - perfect anti-punk!
I can't believe you people are missing the obvious reason for Y2J's return. I have read everyone's response. Some good ideas going, some terrible ones. The reason Jericho has returned is he's going to feud with CM Punk over who really is THE BEST IN THE WORLD. CM Punk stole that from Jericho.
"Still, there are plenty of questions left unanswered between the videos and Jericho’s shocking appearance on Raw SuperShow. For example, the fourth video refers to a mysterious “she.” According to the clip, “she” holds the answers to the return of Chris Jericho, and that when he calls her, he will begin to reclaim what is rightfully his.
What does all this mean for the WWE? No one but Chris Jericho knows, and until he decides to let the rest of the world in on his ultimate goals, all the WWE Universe can do is conjecture. Certainly, Jericho has left us plenty of material to do precisely that."
That Was from WWE.com
so people just chill the fuck out and Wait till next week
things just got interesting!! xP
Parallax said more or less what I was going to, i do have one additional comment. I skipped most of the last two pages of comments, so apologies if anyone said this.
I think this was a truly brilliant heel turn and accomplished exactly what Jericho wanted. He knew coming in that even by going heel he would have a lot of fans that would still love him, and he didn't want to be in Cena's position, getting as many cheers as boos when he's supposed to be a polarizing heel. So he did what he KNEW would draw a ton of legit heat from hardcore wrestling marks, and judging from the many comments here, he totally hit it. Man are people pissed, that's how you know he did his job right people!
Yeah, I wanted him to cut an awesome promo too, and ya know, it's going to happen every week up until his probably match w/ Punk at WM 28. There was only ONE day he could have gotten this much legit heat from this play, and that was last night. Well played sir, well played.
Oh, and for the folks saying that people defending this are WWE marks, I'm def. more of a TNA fan, thank got their show is starting to turn around and get good again.
