Matthew Artus of WWE.com is featuring an article looking at the career of Chris Jericho following his most recent departure from the company this week.
“He is The Lionheart, The Man of 1,004 Holds, The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla and Y2J.
And now, the WWE Universe must refer to the storied grappling career of Chris Jericho in the past tense.
It seems unfair and almost surreal for Y2J’s tenure in WWE to end the way it did on the Aug. 20 edition of Raw. This is the Superstar who once beat “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Rock in the same night to become the first Undisputed WWE Champion in history. This is the competitor who once went toe-to-toe on The Grandest Stage of Them All with Mr. WrestleMania himself, Shawn Michaels. This is the proud warrior who recently put all of his formidable talents on display to defeat Dolph Ziggler, an opponent nearly 10 years his junior, at The 25th Anniversary of SummerSlam.”
