First off let me apologize. I don't have the Internet at home so I can't reply to your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and thank you if you read my first article.
Chris Jericho. He's currently the most hated heel in the WWE Universe, but you and I know him as Y2J.
When I first started watching wrestling, Chris Jericho was a brash, cocky youngster who would call people assclowns (man I miss that) whenever they got on his nerves which was all the time.
He was the first-ever Undisputed Champion, he's had more IC title reigns than anyone in history, AND he's the best there is at this point (besides HBK and Taker of course).
In November of 2007, we all saw "The 2nd Coming of Y2J". I was rather bored with Monday Night RAW up to this point and the save_us.X29 were the only thing that kept my interest.
When I saw Chris Jericho standing on the RAW stage, arms fully extended, I became a 10 year old fan again. I might as well have been jumping up and down like a high school cheerleader. Y2J was back and better than ever. That promo with Santino was priceless.
In June of 2008, Jericho took the first step into the character he has now. He had the final (but hopefully not the last) edition of the Highlight Reel, and told every fan in attendence and the people watching from home no longer to refer to him as Y2J. The Jerichoholics had become hypocrites in a matter of minutes.
He became Superstar of the Year for 2008 and who else should that award have been given to I ask? "Nobody" the author says rebelliously. He carried RAW on his back the entire summer and had some great matches with HBK. He's the best heel in the WWE and maybe in all of wrestling.
Edge and Randy Orton can be assholes all they want but they always have a little reservoir of fans every week. Good 'Ol Jericho gets the whole crowd to hate him in a matter of lines.
"So if he's the best heel why do want him to turn face" some of you may ask. I don't necessarily want him to turn face I just want him to show a little more personality (and a little less leg).
This character he has acts like an emotionless robot (like Keanu Reeves xD). I think AkD's got it right with his "Second Coming of the Highlight Reel" series. (which I highly recommend).
So when will it be? When will we see the third coming of the ayatollah of rocknrolla? Only time will tell (cheesy ending, right?). Oh and uh... Chris? PUT YOUR DAMN PANTS BACK ON!
