Main eventing a show or curtain jerking..its all about getting the crowd going. He does that even in the opening match.. Fuck, a few weeks ago HHH vs Booker and Rock vs Book were the opening matches.. Does that mean they are being depushed? Esp since they faced Booker and we all know where he is in the WWF hierarchy (sarcasm)
As for T-shirts...As a rule only faces get their products. Big exceptions are HHH who was waay to over as 'damn that guy might be evil but he rules' and Austin but other than that I am pretty sure I am right (for the largest part) Ok..add shirts for funny catchphrases (dig it sucka) or nWo..but that one doesn't count imo. When was the last Dudleyz shirt made? Isn't that the greeting card or the saw mill? which was first shown just prior to their Alliance heel turn..(I sure hope I am not wrong on this one, but I dont feel like visiting shopzone now)
I didn't hear you guys go like 'HHH is being depushed because his title shot isn't mentioned every other second' However, wheneever H was in the ring related to his shot at WM, Jericho was there too..
I could go on and on trying to prove you wrong but I am sure you could do the same back.. Bottomline is, imo Jericho IS portrayed as a weak champ for the gimmick, but that doesn't mean he is being depushed or anything..and do we even know what the WWF has in store for after he looses the title? PErhaps he goes into a 4 month feud of awesomeness with a returning Benoit? Angle? Perhaps he throws a tantrum too and we get to see Canadian horsemen for real?

dMp, I agree it would be an awesome feud to see Jericho/Benoit again. The problem is it would be at the exact same level as the previous times they've gotten together. Same with Angle/Jericho. Unlike say Rock/HHH, who first feuded as upstart vs. veteran, then feuded as guys staking claim to the best IC champ in a long time, then finally at the World title level. Jericho/Benoit or Angle would at best be for the IC belt, which they've all already feuded over before. I agree, if they had Jericho grab Benoit, E&C, Storm and say Test and just become an insane leader stirring it up against everyone with his backup, that would rule and help solidify him. But the other angles really would just be spinning the wheels again in the exact same place he was 2 years ago when he and Benoit and Angle did the 2 title/2 fall match.
