Just yesterday, it seemed everyone was speculating about the person (or people) behind the mystery promos being played week after week. After a month and a half of waiting, Chris Jericho appeared on the January 2 edition of Raw and he began his third stint in the WWE.
That run, unfortunately, has already come to an end. Jericho, like many others before him, is pursuing interests outside of wrestling and his band Fozzy is gaining more momentum every day. Y2J will return again down the road, but until then, we can reflect on all the fantastic matches he has given the WWE throughout the past 13 years.
Many of Chris Jericho's matches are considered among the best we have ever seen, and rightfully so. His in-ring prowess continued in 2012, when he helped put over names like CM Punk, Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler.
Now, with eight more months of matches to look over, can any of Jericho's 2012 matches be considered his best in the company? The only way to find out is by ranking the 10 best contests of Chris Jericho's career since he entered the WWE on August 9, 1999.
Side Note: All of the matches on the list are either one-on-one or tag team bouts. Although Jericho has been involved in numerous multi-man contests, such as Money in the Bank, Survivor Series bouts and the Elimination Chamber, they are not included in these rankings. Nonetheless, they are still a large part of Jericho's career and deserve at least some type of mention, ESPECIALLY the fantastic TLC match on SmackDown back in 2001.
