Since his return to the WWE, Chris Jericho has not been shy when it comes to showing his true heel character. But this past weekend, Jericho took his excellent skills on getting the fans to hate him to a new level.
According to wrestlinginc.com, at a live RAW House Show in Los Angeles, Jericho spoke some Spanish, which enraged the fans to the point where toilet paper was thrown into the ring. Jericho then incorporated the toilet paper into the promo and enraged the crowd further.
Jericho then posted on his official Twitter account the following: "Let me be clear on this. I don't wanna see any more toilet paper thrown at me in the ring again! It's disrespectful!!"
Jericho has always had great success in getting the fans to hate him to the point where they want to lynch him. When Jericho was employed with World Championship Wrestling early in his career, he was involved in a program with masked superstar Juventud Guerrera. Jericho was the WCW Cruiserweight Champion, but he ducked Guerrera because he didn’t want to give him a title shot.
Jericho finally put up the title against Guerrera’s Mask, and he cut scathing promos on Guerrera’s Latin heritage. When Guerrera lost, he was forced to give up his mask. Jericho then mocked him by wearing the mask and carrying it to the ring as a trophy.
With this latest incident, Jericho is obviously trying to draw more heat from the fans in preparation for his match against CM Punk at WrestleMania and to propel Punk as a massive babyface. This match will be one of the highlights, and it will undoubtedly be a great technical match.
