The WWE made the right decision to bring back Chris Jericho, but what now?
In wake of CM Punk’s epic win over Y2J, the creative team has a few different options for one of the greatest of all-time.
They can have Jericho fade to obscurity again, and let him simmer in the background and re-group. With the way he sounded on Twitter Monday morning, it makes you wonder if his days in the WWE are over:
Feel like I got run over by a truck...and in a way I did. The better man won last night. I guess its time for me to move on.— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) April 2, 2012
But he signed a deal to be a part of the WWE team through at least the summer according to Ring Side News, so that’s not going to happen.
The Punk feud has run its course—so how about getting involved with the new Heavyweight World Champion Sheamus?
He is clearly one of the rising stars of the sport in wake of his ridiculous 18-second pin of Daniel Bryan, and is ready to take the next step. Having a feud with a legend like Jericho would vault him to the next level.
The only issue is the complete mismatch when it comes to the mic game. Jericho is masterful at getting the crowd into a frenzy and putting on a compelling show. Sheamus is less than stellar in the category and a feud between the two would be rather awkward.
WWE needs to make this more about the wrestling in the ring, and that would make for some great battles. Jericho still has something left in the tank and having him get back on the winning track with some serious momentum heading towards SummerSlam would be a great way to keep Jericho relevant.
Make it happen WWE!
