Im surprised no ones come up with a "jericho is really working with the shield" conspiracy theory yet, so allow me lol. The shield beats up ryback on the 7th (if that match actually happens) and really gets everyone thinkin punk is the leader. Then, at the royal rumble they come out and screw punk to give the rock the title (can you say vinnie mac raitings boost?). That same night Jericho comes out number 29 or 30 and wins the rumble. The next night on raw the shield music hits and jericho walks out at the front of the group bragging about his title shot against the rock and screwing over punk who he never really ended his feud with. Punk is forced to play nice with the rock against the shield and jericho thus becoming a mouthpiece against jericho for the lead in to WM that the rock will inevitably only be sporadically available for. Elimination chamber rolls around and its the shiled and jericho with punk and the rock. Rock retains and eventually we have some form of a WM title match on the line between punk and jericho which of course the rock makes a save against the shield and punk wins setting up rock vs punk at WM... It also opens the door for the shield to destroy jericho after he blames them for his loss thus taking him off tv again for a while and putting another big name under the shields belt.
For the record i dont believe any of this will happen but its fun to think what if sometimes lol
