For me Jericho is still ahead of Punk.

Larger body of great matches with lots of different opponents.

I think Punk will get there eventually but as of right now he is still below him.

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

Jericho imo is the best in the world at being a good Heel and a good Face.He's extremely likeable as both.His 2008 Heel run > Punks current Heel run.Jericho was one of the wrestlers that got me into wrestling,hes a legend in my eyes.Punk is great but hes not at Jericho's level yet I don't care if Jericho jobbed to Punk in a meaningless WWE championship feud that was overshadowed by Rock/Cena and then by Brock/Cena.

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

I will think punk is better than jericho when you can exactly tell me how many raws since punk is champ (and that was in the main event of that raw because punk is a middle show champ), do you actually think was great, because i can count them with 1 hand, while in the other hand over the long career of jericho tell me how many shows where he was involved in the main event have you enjoyed or thought were great?.

The fact that everyone week after week think that the show is garbage is proof that, Punk is doing nothing amazing, but his job like a salaryman, doesnt stand out its not a draw for his time, even if he is the best of this generation if this generation suck it wont elevate punk with the best ever.

Also its funny that punk marks rate cena vs punk a 5 star match, when wrestling wise it was awful, but the crowd and the storyline was amazing, but then as the biased marks they are, last WM, when everyone thought Taker vs HHH was an amazing match (BECAUSE OF THE CROWD AND THE STORYLINE), but punk marks had to say Jericho vs Punk was da best match of WM, even if the crowd was dead for half of the match

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

I still would rather watch a promo from Jericho in his prime than one from punk now. I would say Jericho had more range as he was better at reinveting his persona upon his returns. Also Jericho rarely got injured, then again Punk's injuries have been mainly lately. I would not say jericho was a jobber to the stars because he was the more over person in lots of his feuds.

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

In my opinion they are the most comparable. Of all the people that everyone has always liked to compare Jericho to, or Punk to, the reality is they compare to each other the closest.

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

I like Jericho, and I'll admit, I stopped watching the WWE for a long time after Austin and the Rock left, but it always felt like the WWE never built up Jericho as a true threat. You know, someone like Mark Henry for example with his title reign... it just seemed like Jericho brought comic relief to the main event, but sometimes not much more than that. Silly as it sounds, I thought the stuff Jericho did in WCW was way better then what we saw in the WWE, the matches and the promo's.

Re: CM Punk has surpassed Jericho...

This is like the Aaron Rodgers vs Tom Brady debate on FirstTake. Both are very good, but Jericho has a bigger resume compared to Punk so of course its easier to claim Jericho has more big moments and wins. As Jaws would say, "You're giving me a million dollars except one guy is paying in hundreds and the other in thousands!"
