Well, since this post is being conceived at 1147 PM CST on Jan. 3, I can officially set the countdown on the Chris Jericho title reign at 16 days, 19 hours, and 13 minutes. Enjoy the belts while you can, because the inevitable Rock title win is coming, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it. Rock/Austin Part 4 is coming, maybe with HHH somehow involved if we've all been good this year so Santa Vince will give us that treat. Hey Chris, enjoy the WM match with Edge.
I think Jericho will retain at the Rumble. I think this stable with him, Test, Christian and Storm could be cool, as long as Christian and Storm don't form a tag team (that's the last thing Christian needs right now). I still think Rock will somehow be the one who winds up getting a title shot at Wrestlemania.

I'd really hate to think that Jericho will lose the Undisputed Title at the Rumble...especially to The Rock. I'm hoping the WWF gives him a much longer run with the title that they're appearing to. He should definately hold it up to Wrestlemania, I hope they give him a chance. Jericho is one of the most entertaining wresters in the WWF today.
Not only that, but his character in Fire Pro D is pretty damn good too.

I was shocked when Rock won. I spent all night knowing Rock was going to win (why would they do Booker-Jericho?) and then Michael Cole spouted the "The Rock is Ric Flair's #1 Contender" line before the match and I was expecting a lack of a winner with Flair saying Rock was #1 Contender and Vince saying the same about Booker, another element to the split. But alas, Rock beats Booker AGAIN and now we get Rock-Jericho AGAIN (they've all been good, but they shouldn't overdo it, I want to be able to enjoy this feud for the next 2 years, not say "man I've seen this too much"). Overall, I thought the show was good, my main question is why the hell is Molly jobbing all the time? She's the most talented person on that female roster, in fact, it's not even close. Jazz looks like she has some ability, but come on! Not to mention that Molly seems to have mic skills. Jazz's segment wasn't bad, but it was way too long (she talks way too slow) and it actually had me fearing that Lillian was really going to be replacing Molly (I should have known better yes, but it's a scary thought and those are hard to get rid of). Oh and "What?" sucks now, the crowd has ruined it. "Who?" on the other hand...
Actually if Booker keeps saying it, it will get over and that's sad.
And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?
I'm the one who did the CRZ is Walking sign. (I was holding up a 2F sign in the opening shot and a few other signs as the night went on.) When I saw the original, I just couldn't resist.
Sounds like the show is getting negative reviews; it was terrific live, but I guess the atmosphere makes anything seem terrific. I'll agree What? is getting annoying, particularly since the crowd never times it properly and CONSTANTLY chants it. But Woo! is getting up there too on the annoyance level... it was hard to hear the promos with all the chants going around.
A friend who was helping me hold up the signs got a good shot of Taker actually selling a move. I told him it was a rare and beautiful moment.
I only caught the second half of the show, but nothing seemed to happen there except another Tajiri loss.
I like Rock but I really didn't like that interview. When he's got nothing to do - and I don't think he's had anything to do in more than a year now - he's got nothing to focus on and the interviews go nowhere. The part with the wire was funny, but he needs direction. They all need direction. It seems like everyone is running in place until the dispute-uh.
The outcome of the main was obvious. I like both Booker and Jericho a lot, but they'd be nuts to try that as a main event, even for the one PPV that doesn't really depend on a singles main event to sell itself. That said, is there anyway to make them ban the spot where someone, usually Vince, breaks up a count by grabbing the ref's foot and trying to pull him out? Vince did it yet again during one of Rock's near-falls on Booker. I absolutley hate that and I swear they do it once a show. It has to be the most overrused and annoying thing they do in matches.
For a guy who is often accused of being on roids, he does seem to stay healthy. At this point, an injury may be the only thing that can pry the belt from his vice like grip. 10 months these days is the equivalent of twice that much 15-20 years ago.
