It seemed to me like Jericho got really good heat on Raw and at Royal Rumble. I have a feeling that the WWF is going to stick with him as Unified WWF Champ until Wrestlemania. And that got me thinking. Last year Jericho wrestled in the opening match at X-7. This year he could easily be in the main event. I was wondering if that had ever been accomplished before. Curtain jerking one year to main eventing the next. Anyway thats it.

Nobody else has done that, but Shawn Michaels came close - he opened WrestleMania IX against Tatanka, and was in the semi-main event of WrestleMania X against Razor Ramon.

Bret Hart has gone the OTHER way, however - main eventing WrestleMania IX against Yokozuna, then opening WrestleMania X against Owen Hart. (He also main evented WrestleMania X, but that's not the point. )

ADDENDUM: Just for yuks, I looked for other curtainjerk->main event for the other PPVs. For comparison, I consider the main event to be the last televised match of the show, and the curtainjerk to be the first televised match. I didn't count the Royal Rumble.

Curtainjerk To Main Event:
Davey Boy Smith (SummerSlam '91 to SummerSlam '92)
Randy Savage (Survivor Series '87 to Survivor Series '88)
The Ultimate Warrior (Survivor Series '88 to Survivor Series '89)
Rick Martel (Survivor Series '88 to Survivor Series '89)
The Legion of Doom (Survivor Series '90 to Survivor Series '91)
Diesel (Survivor Series '94 to Survivor Series '95)

Main Event to Curtainjerk:
Red Rooster (Survivor Series '88 to Survivor Series '89)
The Ultimate Warrior (Survivor Series '89 to Survivor Series '90)
Ted DiBiase (Survivor Series '90 to Survivor Series '91)
The Warlord (Survivor Series '90 to Survivor Series '91)

Paul Orondorff has also gone the other way. He Main Evented Wrestlemania I and opened Wrestlemania 2.

Bret Hart IS the only man to open AND Main the same Wrestlemania (His was also the very first repeated WM main event too)

Lex Luger fought for the title at WM X (which while not the last match on the card, was basically half the main event) and then opened WM XI.

Re: Curtainjerk-to-main

Hmm, maybe you mean 89 then 90 for Martel? Because Martel was out with an injury in late 88 and wasn't even at the Series IIRC - his partner Tito got squashed by Andre, and I don't think it was even the opener.
