I don't know if anyone noticed this during the "first" Jericho/RVD match ... but Y2J's "Ask him!" line came out in two unexpected places last night.

It's like when Jericho has an opponent in the Walls of Jericho or some other type of submission, and he will audibly tell the referee to "Ask him!" if he wants to quit ... Well, last night he was choking Van Dam in the ropes when he said "Ask him!", which struck me as a little odd because (1) it was clearly an illegal choke and (2) RVD was in the ropes so a submission wouldn't have counted anyway.

Then, not too long after that, Jericho went for a pin ... and AGAIN he says "Ask him!"; now that one really threw me off, because I think that would have been the first time in wrestling history that a guy submitted from the pain and agony of having his opponent pin him.

Nothing really earth-shattering, but I just found it to be weird on Jericho's part, is all ... Even weirder than JR proudly proclaiming that Fred Durst is "all man". Ugh.

He did the last thing in the tables match last week. Ask him made absolutely no sense there, but Jericho still used it three or four times. Maybe Jericho just loves talking to the refs?

Wisconsin Badgers: 6-3 (Uh...yeah. That pretty much sucked.)

Minnesota Vikings: 6-1 (That sucked as well. It's been a bad weekend.)

If you listen carefully, you might find that Jericho will often use a really loud "ASK HIM" to mask some slightly less loud spot calling.

I think you'll also find that Jericho uses the "ASK HIM" line more often than not in situations where it's obvious the guy isn't going to give it up. It's not unlike his "Come on, baby!" w/flex cover...he does it to be antagonistic rather than to try and win the match.

Technically, I suppose, it's possible for the other guy to just submit at any point in the match. I think Zed's dead-on with the real reason (cheap pop thumbs up) but for a kayfabe-ish excuse, maybe Jericho's arrogant character thinks he's just THAT good.

I'll still take Jericho on a bad night over most people.

Did anyone notice that as RVD began his first comeback, Jericho ran towards him and clearly yelled "into the cage"? RVD promptly lifted Jericho off his feet and launched him into the steel.

Well, that was pretty damn stupid. The only redeeming factor: someone (the mannequin) finally no-sold HHH. When D-LO comes out to break up a fight, you KNOW it's hardcore. Maybe they'll end this feud tonight. Hopefully. Doubtful though.
