People like to talk about Edge like the ladder/TLC match is HIS gimmick when there are handfuls upon handfuls of guys better than him at that.

Oh & also; Punk's 2011 - present destroys Jericho's best run IMO, & I actually mark for Jericho from time to time. My beef with Jericho is that people like to throw him in with the big three (Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero) as one of the greatest workers ever when it isn't the case. He is indeed really, really fucking good though and one of the BETTER workers.
Punk might be "better" (and I'm not fully convinced of that), but I think I'd prefer Jericho's best to Punk's best.

Jericho's 08-09 heel run with HBK and Mysterio feud is just other-worldly good.

I respect him for putting his body on the line and I respect him for stepping up to the plate when needed but to compare him to some of the all time greats is ridiculous, in my opinion. But whatever.
FC summing my mindset on Edge up to a TEE.

I loved alot of his stuff in 2006 such as the Mania match w/ Foley, the ONS tag, Summerslam Vs Cena, etc. That's more due to, you know, being in matches with TERRY FUNK AND MICK FUCKING FOLEY THOUGH.

About to watch Goldberg-Henry, get fucking jealous.

I'd take an average day on the job by Punk, then the best of Jericho. Y2J just errks me beyond belief.

Don't know how many belong anywhere close to the "big 3" but Jericho is one of the guys who wouldn't look completely out of place in that position.

It's tragic that Rey vs Benoit never happened in a "big time" match. Those two in a 20 minute match in early 2006.

EDIT: And Jericho >>> Edge = Punk

Benoit vs. Taker.

I feel like cutting Vince's balls off and have him kneel down, and allow me to kick his ass into a fire place, and watch him burn in continuous pain for not lending us a glimpse of that match, at both their best, which was arguably 2006. C2D, you know what i'm talking about.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Looks like Danielson will be the new Big Three all by himself as the Big One.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I've given up on HHH/Lesnar already. Guess I'm not in the mood. Outside of anything involving THE SHIELD and DANIEL BRYAN, I haven't watched a full match in nearly 2 months. I really don't care any more when it comes to wrestling lol. Current wrestling can fuck off atm lol. WWE sucks, TNA sucks, Indies have been shite for years now (since WWE started signing the good guys). Fuck everything else. I have, however, seen the last 2 UFC PPV's in full. Huh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jericho ain't even close to Benoit, Eddie, Rey or Bryan. Hell, i'd even put Angle above him, and i'm one of those who loathe his lack of in-ring psychology.

Cal, Watch Taker vs. Angle - SD 2003.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Indeed Danielson is the only man in the company today who can lay claim to being anywhere near that elite class. I would consider Punk to be somewhere near there as well, but I always found Punk to be a "different" kind of worker; I kind of get what Bret says about Punk being an innovator as it seems that Punk is a guy who is implementing a more "intelligent" working style rather than flash. I haven't seen anything like it since well..... Eddie.

But yeah, Bryan rules all.
