If you thought Anyone but Chris Jericho would return yesterday ex this tab out now. Jericho saying the mystery man was Brock was a red herring. With all these cryptic videos the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) knew these promos were Jericho related.
I can not tell a lie, I’m kinda bored with Jericho’s come backs. Reinvention is always a good thing. Jericho’s character’s have never stale thats for sure, I think thats why were all a bit like what the fuck was that on Monday Night Raw.
We’re all use to Jericho’s grand return which leads to the massive crowd pop, wordie promo and crowd change. Yet this time it was a bit different. Jericho was slapping fives and pandering the crowd. He went into the ring grabbed the mic said nothing and left. At first I quite upset I thought the celebration was going on to long, then I re watch his return upon second viewing, I realized the sarcasm of all.
Jericho was building heat. Clearly Jericho will be a heel and this particular return was mocking the WWE “universe” for its embrace of CM Punk. Jericho’s new character seems like a self centered, Hollywood diva. He’s playing a different heel maybe the egomaniac cant have someone else calling them selves “best in the world”.
Many fans on Twitter had a mix reaction for Jericho’s return. Some thought It was brilliant and others thought total let-down. It was neither. By saying nothing he did what he had to do create heat.
The crowd pop’d when he first came out and boo’d when he exited the arena. There’s going to be a steady build to this in weeks to come. All roads to Punk/Jericho at WrestleMania. I predict Jericho will win the rumble and then choose to face CM Punk at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship.
The one issue I had with his return was the promos had nothing in common with the actual return. What did the girl in the promos have to do with his return? I need to know the “she that holds the mystery of your rebirth” bullshit. Maybe the mysterious girl is a metaphor for CM Punk? Hopefully this isn’t a work and were lead down the Positively Page route.
