Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I could see Jericho being alittle over-rated. I don't think that is a crazy statement, to be honest. And Jericho is one of my favorites of all time. When HBK was retired from 1998-2002, Jericho and Triple H became my favorite wrestlers in that 4 year period. So, I was/am a huge a fan of his. But looking back on it now, I can see him being alittle bit over-rated, to be honest. It also doesn't help that he was a main eventer in a time period where he had to compete with the likes of Austin, Rock, Triple H all in their prime.
On the same token, Cena isn't as bad as the hardcore IWC fan thinks he is. But at the same time, I can count on one hand the amount of great matches he's had now in his decade in the company and 5-6 years as a main eventer. I think the hate is so massive on the internet for him that it convinced some to say. "Hey, he's not that bad." And he isn't. But that doesn't make him a great in-ring performer, either. A decade strong in the company and still waiting for him to have his first great WM match, or carry someone that he is better than. Hasn't happened yet. And the fact that his character is stale may not be his fault, but it doesn't help, either. Guy needs some layers of depth to his character in the worst way.
