The Jericho return, to put it mildly, was the worst wrestling return in history of professional wrestling. It was absolutely terrible, if you can't see that then you are a true WWE fan and you stick by the product.

    The WWE is like the colts. They were a great team for a long time, now they suck.
    Nah. I don't stick by the product. I'm just as critical of it as many fans are nowadays. And I agree that WWE drops the ball more and more lately. If ANY other wrestler came back and did what Jericho just did, I'd completely agree with your point of view without question.

    But this is Jericho. He's too smart to not have this planned out in a way that will leave fans happy. And while it's a natural reaction, I think it's a mistake to lump Jericho's unorthodox return in with the rest of the garbage WWE has been putting out lately. Simply because unlike most of WWE's nonsense, Jericho's return will actually lead to something.

    And I say that because Jericho has Vince by the balls, and won't let Vince screw things up. Jericho's the kind of guy that would walk out on Vince before he let Vince make him look like a fool.

    Again, keep up the good blogs.

    But think about this, I'm already reading through other posts about how people are disappointed in Jericho, mad at the WWE, thinking the segment just sucked...but really...Jericho is getting what he wants. I mean, how many people honestly thought Jericho would return as a straight face. I for one didnt. At the end of his segments, you could hear the boo's from how his return went. I don't agree with you Wrestlingfan608, it wasn't the worst return in the history, it was lackluster, but it served it's purpose. Anyone who has been gone for a long time when they come back, will normally get cheers, unless in their return they do something dastardly, I mean...maybe I am wrong in this and if I am correct me, but a few weeks back at the Slammys when Christian came out to present, before he said anything he was getting cheers i thought. If Jericho is wanting/needing to be heel, he did the right thing. I am simply torn, because from a creative point, this return was perfect in that it sets Y2J to become a huge HEEL in the next few weeks, but from a die hard fan, I was let down.

    You know Parallax, I posted my own thoughts on Raw on another blog, but I totally agree with your comments. I was really bummed by how Jericho returned...BUT...I see the next few weeks we are going to get some really good promos from Jericho. I would also agree that the promo wasn't lazy, as it was more unexpected. I think everyone knew it was going to be Jericho, and everyone expected something from him, and when all he did was rile the fans up and leave, it was a let down. So i wouldn't say lazy, as more unexpected would be the better way of putting it.

    I enjoy your blogs. But I gotta say, your reaction makes me laugh. The creative team didn't know what to do? What makes you think a guy like Jericho, who has the stroke to come and go as he pleases, takes his cues from the creative team? Jericho can call his own shots at this point. He knows it. And so does Vince. Vince needs Jericho more than Jericho needs Vince. If the creative team had ANY say in Jericho's return segment, he would have cut the same old paint-by-numbers heel promo. Starts off saying how good it is to be back, then turns on the fans.

    What we saw was something different. Or as you put it, "lazy". If you know anything about Jericho, you know that he isn't going to come back and do the same shit over and over. Look at his debut in WWE. Comes out, interrupts Rock, gets instant heel cred. Then he left. Comes back, interrupts Orton, gets instant babyface cred.

    Would you expect him to come out and do the same thing this time? Cut some regular heel promo? Maybe do a run-in? Of course not. He did something new. He came out, had the crowd going. More and more. Then slowly made his way to the back. Didn't say a word. Didn't have to. He went from face to heel by NOT doing what so many people clearly expected him to do.

    There wasn't anything "lazy" about it. It's ring psychology. And it worked PERFECTLY. Because a great heel doesn't give you DO WANT. He gives you what you DON'T WANT.

    I look forward to checking on this blog for other comments. Keep up the good work.
