What the hell has happened to the walls of jericho?

Okay, everyone may have already said about this, but the move now is just basically him bending the knees back, yes kids are not a clever has adults, but even they can tell it will never hurt! It is now the most pointless move since Magikarp's splash!!

He can't do it anymore because it put too much strain on his back. The same reason he stopped using the Lion Tamer.

It's not even a finisher anymore because barely anybody taps out when Jericho uses it.

Re: What the hell has happened to the walls of jericho?

No, you are incorrect, but very close to the correct answer!

The correct answer to the most useless move is also a Jericho move, the Lionsault.

I swear to God I must have seen 20 or 30 missed Lionsaults in the past half a year.

Say what you want about crap finishers, Edge's Spear, R-Truth's Lie Detector, Morrison's Starship Pain, 80 percent of anything MVP has used as a finisher, but at least the moves connect!

Yeah yeah yeah, Jericho's a heel and he shouldn't be doing the flashy moves. But he's also The Best In The World At What He Does(tm). Its just too bad that what he does is consistently get booked to miss a signature move, and a pretty damn spiffy one at that.

He used the Lion Tamer against Danielson, if I recall.

Most finisher dont look like they hurt most of the time but if you start getting wins off them kids will start to believe they can kill.

Jericho can perform the move at most times timed to perfection like during a spear by edge but its just lost its credibility as when he performs it no one taps out and they break free

Yeah, but Danielson is a real man, and not just a glorified body builder or model like half the wrasslers seem to be.

He broke it out on Cena last year, but it's a move seen once a year.

God, the Lion Tamer is so fcking awesome. I wish he could use it in every match. Best submission move of all time.
