Normally I’d say it was meant to be that bad (atleast I hope) but with WWE creative who knows. My only worry is I got a good laugh and I crowd popped a little so I could see them running with it. Neone else get a little Hakeem the Africa Dream vibe from Brotus’ mannerisms?

The prospect of a Jericho and Undertaker match/feud is very interesting though, but I would much prefer to see Jericho and Punk feud.

I really regret the whole Jericoke thing now because it was such a snap judgement based on what I was watching and my misinterpreting it. The CM Punk thing really fried my capacity to believe that WWE will successfully blur the lines. Do yourself a favor and watch Punk’s promo when he wore the Stone Cold shirt. That ain’t the same guy we’re seeing now.

I want to think Punk and Jericho will have this amazing feud into WM over fan perceptions and what really makes heels heels and faces faces but I can’t shake the feeling that Jericho will just instead be used to put over COO HHH, or Undertaker.

This RAW made tipped my scales in favor of cynicism instead of optimism for the first time since last summer.Why hotshot a champ v. champ match and have the World champ get a fluky small package pin on the IC champ, putting neither man over? Why let Ziggler run around with the WWE belt after a count-out victory and NOT explain to the audience at home that Punk is still champ? Why not have Matt Striker try to interview an exiting Jericho on RAW, giving the smiling-mute angle a bit more clarity, instead of having some nameless cameraman interview Chris for WWE.com? Finally, why end the show with Kane trying to blow up Zack Ryder from the demonic depths of…under the ring?

I just don’t get it. Punk was right, Vince is a millionaire who should be a billionaire but instead we’ll likely get Cena pinning Rock at WM, Jericho putting the Deadman to 20-0 at WM, Randy Orton RKO’ing Daniel Bryan into oblivion en route to winning the World Title, and Johnny Ace pinning CM Punk.

They do give some wrestlers full blown scripts (which they perform poorly), but some guys at least definitely improvise. So while it’s true the long term booking isn’t decided by the wrestlers (they get input, especially in the case of someone like Jericho), the day to day stuff is a bit more in the wrestlers control. And when you consider how quickly the long term booking changes, or gets dropped and forgotten, or starts with no clear end in sight, etc, etc, etc … the credit is probably going to be given to the people who execute well instead of the people that rarely get the long term booking right. If someone given a half finished script that will probably go in a mediocre direction and improvises an amazing scene, I probably would heap praises on the actor, not the script writer.

I really think you’ve missed the point of what I was saying. I was praising Jericho’s character, his backstory, and the continuity. I’m not sure what part of my posts could be mistaken for backstage insight or a commentary on WWE Creative’s drafting processes. I’m sure My posts would be smark-friendly and easier to mock if they were, but that simply wasn’t the case.
I’m not sure why I have to specify who’s writing the story when I praise it. After all, I can say “I loved Robert Downey Junior in Sherlock Holmes” without someone saying “you mean you love the writers, directors and RDJ’s delivery of his lines in Sherlock Holmes.” I never understood that about IWC commentary, but if you insist… ahem: I believe that the creative processes behind the Chris Jericho character are well-made, and that Christopher Irvine showed excellent prowess in enacting those creative processes through a fictional character (that character being Chris Jericho). I do not believe that Chris Jericho and Chris Irvine are one and the same, nor that he has total creative control of the Chris Jericho character or any other aspect of WWE programming.

I hate indulging petty mockery and sarcasm, or being trolled and misinterpreted for the sake of insidepulse perpetuating negative IWC stereotypes, but there you have it.

Jericho is back, just be happy. Looking forward to what he does in the future.

I am, that’s for sure.

All indicators were that HBK and Jericho were more or less booking their own feud in 2008. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised that the WWE gave Jericho some pointers, or that Jericho went to the WWE and told then this is what he wanted to do. Right now, Jericho is at the level where he can get a lot more freedom in what he does.

Actually, this is what the WWE needs a lot more of, as wrestlers come across a lot better when they’re allowed to be natural. That is why Cena seems to always be so stifled and CM Punk can dominate him on the mic. Cena just seems to reading off a script, while Punk seems to be shooting from the heart. I’d like to see wrestlers have more input on their promos and on their feuds. Perhaps the WWE would be a whole lot better if the dynamic wasn’t so much top-down. That is not to say that wrestlers should control the program–we saw what happened in WCW when that was the case. But at the very least, they could be allowed more influence over the product. Do you think Austin or Rock would have survived coming up in today’s WWE environment? Perhaps, perhaps not. But at least they were given the chance to be themselves. Let’s see more of today’s wrestlers do that.
