The WWE Universe was stunned when Chris Jericho beat Kevin Owens for the United States Championship at WWE Backlash. Jericho celebrated his victory by being with his "friends," but unfortunately, it ended prematurely. Y2J lost his title in a rematch against Kevin Owens. The Prize Fighter made sure to hurt Jericho and that is exactly what happened.
The Ayatollah Of Rock And Rolla
There is no doubt that Chris Jericho is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Y2J seems to have found the right mix to be successful and part of a very dynamic industry. Chris Jericho was perceived before as one-dimensional superstar but that did not stop him to recreate himself as the years go by. Regardless if it is the attitude era, the ruthless aggression phase, the reality stage or the modern times, Chris Jericho has made a stomp of his legacy.
Apart from his in-ring ability, his mic skills and charisma is on another level. A couple of Hall Of Famers are actually amazed by the way Chris Jericho was able to adapt and adjust easily with the business. However, all good things must come to an end. With his wrestling career already on the horizon, the WWE Universe might have seen the last match of Chris Jericho. During one of his interviews, Y2J hinted his fans about his plans in his historic career. Some of the WWE officials also chimed in that Jericho will no longer take part on any long time project for WWE.
Jericho's Swan Song
Chris Jericho's match the other day was part of the storyline of him leaving. Fans still have not grasped the reality that the "renaissance" man is about to end his career. Jericho and his band Fozzy already have some tour dates and leaving the squared circle will not really be that hard for him. There will be a lot of new wrestlers who will be stronger or even wittier than Y2J, but it is safe to say that there is only one Chris Jericho.
