The Rock lays down a promo- everything goes back to normal in 10 minutes...
Chris Jericho lays down an epic promo- NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME, AGAIN!
Look, I'm only going to say this once.
The Rock can lay down a killer promo when the winds are with him, he can put on a pretty damn fine match, there's no question. The Rock can schmooze with the best, act natural and BE the man - at times.
But you're talking about Chris Jericho here. The guy slogged harder than Rock to get here and he's much more FOR the business than Rocky. And it shows.
Rock was borne unto the business and it was his second or third career choice. Never mind that. He got a major break by being Rocky Johnson's son. But that only got him in the door. Then he was fortunate enough to be chosen by Vince to head up the driving of a major character. Through direction and most certainly, talent of his own, The Rock became one of the biggest stars ever.
Now take Jericho. The guy had a burning desire to be in the business. He slogged, he toured and he did whatever it took to get to where he is. That's fine, it doesn't necessarily mean he's more entitled. However, Jericho wasn't handed a microphone - he wasn't thrust into the spotlight - he got there all on his own. More slog. More work. More real emotion. In the ring and on the mic. And it shows.
I guess it just depends where you're standing though.
Someone said that World Titles = ME which is why Jericho is inferior to Rock/Austin since he had no title matches from his Undisputed Title Loss to HHH. WHO CARES ABOUT THE WORLD TITLE! Undertaker never had a world title from 1999-2008 (minus his month as Undisputed Champion) but he's ALWAYS been a ME player because he's an attraction. If you can excite an audience you're in the ME or ME caliber that's all I'm going to say about that.
OT: The most overrated guy on the WWE roster is without a doubt Christian. I just don't get everyone's obsession. He's boring on the mic and just good in the ring. I do like some of his matches I'm not knocking him on that but I'm basically tortured by his lack of charisma when it comes to putting the feud over on the mic. Which is weird. I find him to just be average on the mic and above average in the ring.
