Chris Jericho come to the ring to do a promo. Jericho calls out HBK. Y2J needs to tell him something face to face. HBK comes to the ring. Jericho puts over the video of Shawn Michaels wrestlemania legacy. Jericho used to pattern himself after HBK. A series of videos are shown where Jericho does things exactly like HBK. Jericho grew out of wanting to be the next HBK and grew into being the first Chris Jericho. The showstopper was replaced by the highlight of the night. There is nobody that Y2J is more excited about wrestling than HBK. When the match is over HBK will have to admit that Jericho is better than himself. Jericho slaps HBK and he laughs and slaps him back. This match at Wrestlemania is sure to be a classic in my opinion.
