If memory servers neither, it's been used for decades...

Yeah, some people have done it before these two. Not sure who, though. Out of these two, I think it's Raven.

I accept rep.


Headbanging is crucial.

I always thought a fella called Jesus Christ first made this famous (around 30AD) when he was performing for a group of local folk on a hill, to chants of "DIE JC DIE!" (similar to how Rocky Maivia's career started)

God turned heel on Jesus big time there, though. Didn't even as much as attempt to help him.

I never even realized Jericho and Raven did a crucifixion pose. Always just thought Jericho was just doing some sort of rock star type pose while Raven was doing a pose with wings since he's named after a bird.

Pretty sure it's Raven. From what I've seen of Jericho in the early-mid 90's, I don't remember seeing him do it.

Yeah it's been around for ages.... Chris Jericho, Vampiro, CM Punk, Viscera, Scott Steiner, Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer, Sheamus, and many more have all done the crucifix pose as well

Raven has done it longer than most of the people mentioned it this thread though, and he does it better... it fits his character more.

Never Miss A Good Chance To Shut Up.

If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.

Raven definitely did it before Jericho in the original ECW.
