You're not saving us anymore Jericho, you've become the thing we need saving from.
As for me being the United States Champion meaning I'm on my way to the top- that's not the reason. The reason is I am just that damn good. And I still don't see why you can't admit why you really want to see me fail. You want to see me fail because in your 22 year career, one thing that always evaded you is this United States Championship. Sure, you've won 7 World Championships, sure you're the record Intercontinental Championship holder, but you've never held this championship- and in your mind- in your perfect world, you wish you had.
Do I think a thirteen time World Champion Triple H is an equal to The Undertaker? Yes. Both men have left amazing dynasties in this industry and are still going, but both men are easily equal. As for Sheamus and CM Punk, I agree, Punk is better than Sheamus- I'm sure Sheamus would agree too, but I beat Sheamus twice in one match, you had an entire month to get ready for CM Punk the second time, and you only beat him because Lex Luger was a weak link. As for Brock Lesnar bettering me, the reason Brock Lesnar became the World Heavyweight Champion was because I was chosen for Raw, not Nitro. Had I been in that tournament, I would have beaten Lesnar for the third time in the space of 11 days and became the World Heavyweight Champion.
I never once said you didn't work your ass off to get to the spot where you are- you did and for that, I have to show you respect. What I don't like about you Jericho, is the arrogance. You claim you're the best in the world at what you do. What you do- is piss people off. And I would love to just hit one Beautiful Disaster to shut you the hell up.
Am I going to reassess my assessment that you're a joke? No. You started out as a joke, then you became less of one, but now you've gone back to being a joke. Why are you a joke? Because you insist on being the centre of attention. If Punk doesn't shut you up tonight Jericho, which I'm sure he will, I'll be happy to do it.
