Re: Orton vs. Ziggler To Main Event SD! This Friday
People seem to think Orton will be a sure win, but I don't know about that. Ziggler has beaten Jerico, and Orton just lost to Del Rio. Perhaps for once the WWE will switch it up and Ziggler will steal one out somewhat legit.
Dude, it's JERICHO. Seriously. Think about that for a second. It. Was. Jericho. The guy who let Heath Slater and Evan Bourne beat him clean. The guy who got knocked out by Mickey Rourke. Beating him doesn't matter.
And here's the thing, even if it did matter, people seem to forget Jericho was leaving. WWE didn't just decide one day "Oh, hey, wouldn't it be awesome if Ziggler beat Jericho?". No, it happened because he needed a way out of the company. Del Rio beat Orton just.....because it's Del Rio, basically and they wanted to give him credibility going into the PPV. It might have had a little to do with Orton's suspension, but certainly it's nowhere near to the degree that the Jericho win for Ziggler was in the sense of, you can definitively point out the only reason that it happened, which is a rarer, non every day scenario that wouldn't regularly occur and doesn't reflect on how they use the person they put over.
