Chris Jericho Responds to Triple H’s Comments from RAW, Says Bye Bye to WWE

– As seen on last night’s RAW, Triple H cut a promo at Daniel Bryan and grouped him with Edge, Rob Van Dam and Chris Jericho as talented stars who made it but were never “the guy” for WWE. Triple H said if any of them had been the face of WWE years ago, they would all be working for Ted Turner’s WCW.

Jericho replied on Twitter:

“Thing is @tripleh despite ur major push,u never were either. Good luck in ur future endeavours”

Jericho also posted this tweet which appears to have been deleted now:

“Time to move on guys. Bye bye @wwe! Now time for more important things…any doubt that #DayInTheLife is the best @thebeatles song ever??”

    Not his fault. He had the charisma and skill base to carry the company without so much as a secondary thought. Want proof? The IC title scene when him and Benoit were going at it produced higher ratings and more general interest in the company. That’s a fact that proves he could’ve lead the company.

    Jericho is one of my top 5 favorite wrestlers of all time but there’s no way Jericho did more for wrestling during the attitude era than HHH. Was HHH as important as Austin, Rock, or McMahon? No. But he was the #1 heel in the company for the latter half of 1999 and all of 2000 (The companies two most profitable and mainstream years). And even before that, as a part of DX, HHH was an important part of the show. I’d rank both HHH and Mick Foley behind the 3 men I mentioned earlier as the top influences of the Attitude Era being successful.

    Although Jericho’s debut was undeniably awesome, he pretty toiled in the mid card scene until late 2001 when WWE finally started taking him seriously as a main evener. But by that point wrestling’s prime had come and gone.

    Like Ryback, Big E. has the look but from what I’ve seen so far, his mic skills are pretty horrible. In the ring, he’s only average. Right or wrong it’s charisma that will get you the furthest in this field. Hogan, Warrior, Cena, and even Austin (Post neck injury) were all limited in the ring but got over thru their personalities. That being the case Big E. has a long way to go.

    Thankyou for being the voice of reason.

    I think you nailed it. I HOPE Bryan can be “the guy.” Because they really don’t have anyone else who CAN be “the guy” right now. They were concerned enough about Punk (rightly or wrongly) that they brought in Paul Heyman. And now, Heyman is working with Curtis Axel. Sheamus is where? Is he still on the shelf? I think so. Orton’s mic skills run the gamut from A to B. The Shield? The Wyatt family? You put people in factions of 3 or more when you see a weakness in all of them. I’d really like to see them take the time and efforting to work with Big E Langston. He reminds me a lot of Bobby Lashly – he’s got “the look,” and all the potential in the world. But he needs the time to grow into being “the guy.” I don’t think WWE will (or can afford to) allow him to develop

    They have every right to be concerned. It seems like every attempt to create a huge star who’s name isn’t John Cena in the last 5-8 years or so has fallen flat. Orton, Edge, Batista, Sheamus, and Punk have all stepped up and given it their best shot but for whatever reasons none of them have made to to Austin, Rock, Cena, etc levels.

    I know a lot of people say Punk has reached that level but let’s not kid ourselves. Ratings were abysmal during his 14 month title run. The worst since 1997 when WCW was on top.

    I hope Bryan can reach that level but if Bryan, Orton, and Punk were really doing so well would WWE be rushing Cena back from injury 3 months ahead of time?

    Y2J did more for the sport in the Attitude Era during his short tenure there than Triple H did in his entire time. Triple H is a piece of shit. Always has been, always will be. He always hides behind any little excuse he can think of to take the focus off of his enormous ego and place it on any and everything else. It has always been so apparent he wanted to be on the same level as Austin or The Rock but never was and never will be. And now that he’s in power I’m just happy history won’t remember him as a high class performer such as those two.

    Should of could of would of if it wasn’t for the Attitude era, the Kliq and HHH family he would not be were he is today. But I don’t live by What if it just what is HHH is ne of the all time great one of the best every. I also think HHH what just part of the storyline I don’t think HHH feels this way it just part of the storyline. I do see Jericho returning soon that what Jericho blog is all about he will be back soon.

  • StocktonJoe

    WWF/WWE never saw fit to have HHH become the “WWE Undisputed Champion”

    WWE apparently feels that Randy Orton can’t claim the mantle of “Face of the WWE” without “help from management.” It looks as though the feeling is that Randy Orton isn’t “strong enough” or charismatic enough or has the mike skills (legit concerns) to win it by himself. Some of that is story-line. How much of it isn’t?

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I have to agree with Jericho, while Triple H was champion if Austin and The Rock weren’t there he wouldn’t have saved that company either.

    Second one, makes me think Jericho was just drunk.

  • Andrew

    Because this isn’t a work at all.
