Christian is amazing. Yes, he is a good wrestler and solid veteran hand, but he is such an outlier in the Universe. He is older, sort of looks sickly and is small and yet there he is still holding his own with those at the top of the card.
I am amazed he is still around in a singles role. Amazed he still gets a pretty good reaction with little character development for years and years.
I wonder what younger fans think of him? I know what JBL seems to think of him.
I hope Christian just sort of sticks around like Rick Martel or Bobby Eaton did and puzzles younger fans for years

I don't feel bad for Dave at all. He didn't have to goad Vince into writing a Rumble win and WM main-event slot into his contract, knowing full well what the fans REALLY wanted if he'd watched but ONE episode of RAW in the past year. He could've just done a Jericho and said "I can give you eight months, use me however you'd like", and we probably wouldn't be hating his guts right now, especially if "use me however you'd like" translated to legitimizing guys like Cesaro and Bray Wyatt. (But of course, that's beneath him now...)
This is why Jericho will always be welcome back to the WWE. he puts EVERYONE over while also being a credible championship contender. I wish Jericho would come back to the Intercontinental Title and make it worth something again.
Jericho in one of his books told a similar story where he found out he was being paid less than what his opponent got. He barged into Vince's office to confront him about it. Vince just cut him a check right then and there to shut him up.
