    key words : “currently PENCILED into”

  • L

    Fuck Jericho punk…. And then a taker/ streak match aswell… If only there was still a mitb match too…

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    I wouldn’t care if Jericho became super successful with Fozzy, same with Rock. I don’t care that he got successful in the movie business. They are making money without damaging their bodies every night so good for them. My beef with Rock is that he ditched everyone for 6 or 7yrs and is now claiming he is back because of the fans and saying he will never leave… I understand he probably doesn’t have much free time since he is away filming movies but I’m sure if he really wanted to… The guy could show up for more than the 4 or 5 shows since last Mania.

    30?? i thought it was 40 man now 🙁

  • arrrrr truth

    ideally, i wouldnt mind seeing jericho-punk at mania NOT for the title and maybe find a way to have danielson wrestle ziggler for it. im sure they can twist the booking somehow.

  • JOE

    @duffman let me ask you this. If Jericho was as successful with fozzy as the rock is with his movie career, and did the exact same thing the rock did (leave wrestling for seven years). Would you still have the same opinion about Jericho as you do now?? Please tell me the truth, as I would love to know.

  • JOE

    The rock is half black and half Samoan just saying

  • Gary

    I understand what your saying, sjust seemed alil funny, seeing how Rock isnt black at all (i think) and obama is like 1/100000000th black….

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    The sentence before that, they can do no wrong. No matter what Rock does everyone is right on top of him. In the papers(might just my neighborhood… my bad if it is) just like Rock, not a single thing Obama does is ever frowned upon. ALWAYS pro Obama just like the IWC is ALWAYS pro Rocky.

    Forgot about RAW, If you’d like to continue I’ll either be back later tonight or tomorrow.

  • Gary

    “the Obama of the wrestling world” then what did u mean by that comment?

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    I never compared Rock to Obama because they are black… Isn’t Rock Samoan anyway? You want to back Rocky up, go for it. Everyone thinks differently. To each his own.

  • Gary

    wow so because The Rock is black you call him the obama of Wrestling LMAO! sorry but if your gna compare The rock to a powerful black person, he would be on a level higher then obama…do you understand what The Rock did for wrestling? if he wouldnt of done what he did, Smackdown would of never exsited, and promos would still blow donkey balls….I dont agree with The Rock bouncing back and foruth but give dude his respect..only thing Cena has under his belt is bringin pg to wrestling and bringin abunch of kids to the fan seat…Please if you feel im wrong or ‘riding the rocks dick’ thn set me str8, what has Cena done that deserves the respect that the rock gets….PLEASE dont say title regins because that is nothing but set up….

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Nobody bitches about the golden boy who does no wrong, the Obama of the wrestling world. In fact the majority that post in Rock related articles have been done nothing but slurp the guy and bash Cena. It says absolutely nowhere that the guy who never turned his back on wrestling is getting a title shot.

  • Gary

    what about fozzy? your telling me he rather stay with a band whos last album sales where less then 10,000 to turn down a return which will bring him millions? Forget Fozzy!

  • Dave L

    Umm what about Fozzy?

  • @Zach
    you think your the only person that figured that out? It’s obvious, i thought it went without saying.

  • Zach D

    Does anyone remember what I said the other day on a different post? Jericho is returning to claim what is rightfully his, the title of best in the world. Epic.

  • Bill

    Finally……….. RAW IS JERICHO!!!!

  • Bastion boogeyman

    Jericho is old now. He’s not coming back.

  • Rucdogg

    so the rock comes back to main even mania and people bitch. jericho comes back AND gets a title shot and crickets?

  • This indeed would be awesome. If the cryptic videos aren’t for jericho though i’m going with a longshot and saying tghey are for Mcintyre. He’s a familiar face returning to be “the chosen one” as McMahon dubbed him. He’s got all the tools if he can put it together.

  • chronoxiong

    Please, let this happen. The “Best in the World” vs “Best at what I do today.”

  • CM Mark


  • the dude

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!!

  • Statix901

    It’s actually in Memphis, TN. Nugget.

  • scsa852k

    CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho for WWE Championship
    with Steve Austin as special guest referee..

  • JIR

    we can only dream but lets keep our feet on the ground 60/40 chance of it NOT happening

  • Prince

    Oh hell yes! This better be true!

  • Frank

    WWE will not do this cuz everybody is expecting it now.

  • shawn

    was the rumble # (NUMBER) of participants changed to 40 only for last year?

  • ##

    Lets see if this comes true….

  • bonerjams

    The best in the world at what he does? I think so.

  • BITWx

    Hope its not a short jericho run

  • Bob Rooney

    Please be true! That would be 100 times better than Rock vs Cena.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    Now thats what the hell ive been waiting for!
