🤼‍♂ How Good of a Wrestler Were They Really? 🤼‍♀ #11 Chris Jericho 🍾

Alright! Sorry for the wee break but I had a hectic few days. In our last edition, we had a new leader in Kurt Angle, which is a reverse on the top 100 poll. Austin had 8 more voters, for reference.

Wrestler Rating
Kurt Angle (2) 4.55
Stone Cold Steve Austin (1) 4.36
William Regal (18) 4.1
Bret Hart (9) 4.07
CM Punk (16) 3.85
Booker T (48) 3.72
Brock Lesnar (30) 3.52
John Cena (17) 3.43
Rob Van Dam (47) 3.4
Becky Lynch (28) 3.2

Next, I considered swerving y’all and going more old school to get away from the attitude era but the close vote means it felt like we should do these two next. Beating Triple H by A SINGLE VOTE, it’s Y2J, the Liontamer, the Rock Star, Le Champion, The Undisputed, The Ayatolla of Rock and Rolla, The Man of 1001 holds, The List Maker please make sure you SHUT THE HELL UP and DON’T YOU EVER, EVEEEER say his name wrong because he’s got IT…

It’s Chris Jericho.

So How Good is Chris Jericho Really?

LOL I had to edit it down to 50 for me to be allowed to post it.

For this reason alone he is a 5.

given there is 50 matches to choose from I’m gonna allow this one to be multiple choice, please pick up to 5.

Ok I’ll shut up now, hope this is a big one and worth the wait lads :smiley:

He’s a 5 innit. Reinvented himself a million times. Great heel. Believe character. He’s excellent

maybe one of the greatest trollings of a company ever, that or Pillman a year or two before



I forgot G.O.A.T in the OP but I’ll save it for when he inevitably tops the poll

Who’s the sexiest wrestler

don’t think he was trolling the company at this point, just part of the angle innit

the pay off was one of my favourite wcw moments, jericho was such a prick for so long he got dean malenko this monster pop (number 2 if the timestamp hasn’t worked)

I mean honestly. Swagger, no arrogance (or just fun arrogance I guess). Extraordinary in the ring, hilarious on the mic. A real hero. Man.

Probably a heretic view - he’s a 3.5 for me. He’s obviously a star, hugely talented and has a great understanding of the “business”, but I don’t think I’ve ever popped for his work.

Sorry everyone.

Walls of Jericho is a good name for a finisher on first impression but given the walls of Jericho famously collapsed and proved ineffective in defending the city, it doesn’t really make much sense.



All-time top 5 IMO


He’s verged on actual arrogance recently trying to defend AEW, but he’s been so good for so long he can pass this off as being a work (and to be fair has kinda earned that status)

interesting, although if I’ve understood your timeline right, you maybe missed quite a lot of his best stuff? (2000-2002 and 2018-19?)
