Triple H went out his way to bury Rob Van Dam, Edge, and Chris Jericho last night at the end of the RAW show. Hunter told the world that those guys were not “the one” no matter how badly some fans wanted to see them pushed. Hunter went on to say that they bombed and if they were given the ball, everyone in the WWE would be working for Ted Turner.
Chris Jericho didn’t take this lightly. Jericho went on his Twitter account and posted a quick but effective response to the WWE C.O.O.
“Thing is @tripleh despite ur major push,u never were either. Good luck in ur future endeavours @emmrichr84: Not the one @TripleH? I disagree”
For the record Edge and Rob Van Dam did not post anything in response but were active on Twitter so that should tell you something right there. Jericho only took a few hours to respond.
Now the skeptic in me says that this is all part of a big angle. Jericho is notorious for playing up angles and working fans on Twitter. Jericho was penciled in to return at some point in time for WrestleMania. I have no idea why Hunter would drop his name randomly (or all three for that matter) if there wasn’t something to this.
As far as the content of the promo, well it is hard to get that upset about it. The man is a heel. Why would he go out and say anything complimentary about any babyfaces? I would take it with a grain of salt. Maybe he was just having fun with what he likes to call the dirt sheets? I just wouldn’t get that upset about it.
Is there money in Jericho returning as part of the feud? Yes but I am not sure where he fits in. The logical progression as I see it is for The Big Show to get Randy Orton next with Hunter at some point wrestling Daniel Bryan. Maybe that is the way they go and Jericho comes back in December after those feuds run their course? Even if they go to Cena after, that would still leave Hunter or Orton (whoever isn’t wrestling Cena) open for the Jericho run.
