Folks, c'mon. The running of Stephie from HHH to Jericho has been foreshadowed for months and months. The only surprising thing about it is that they're following through. Jericho-H at WM18 is a stone cold lock. Only question is whether Austin will be in it as well, or whether they'll put him in against the Outsiders. Personally, I'm rooting for Flair-Austin vs Hall-Nash.
I have a feeling that that is a fake poster. The last WM X-8 poster I saw was completely black with the WM X-8 logo and a simple message (which I forget )...anyways when was this poster 'released'? I don't expect that poster to be 'official' until after NWO (Kinda like what they did last year with the 'Houston we have a problem' poster.
Well...all I have to say is...TOTALLY AWESOME. I think Jericho v. HHH at Wrestlemania will be the best main event (and most un-stale) main event they could have. Plus, I've been lobbying for Steph to succumb to the sexual tension and go with Jericho for months now.

Jericho has no belts in the pic
Which means, if we go by the erroneous assumption that this is legit, it WON'T be Triple H vs. Jericho at Wrestlemania because Triple H will be in the main event at Wrestlemania challenging the WWF champion.
So if we DO continue to throw all common sense out the window and go by the information provided by this photo, it can't be a Jericho/HHH main event.
After all, that Dudley Boyz/Undertaker vs. Steve Austin/Big Show/William Regal tag match that the Royal Rumble website reported a month before the event was just awesome, wasn't it?

Back when the WWF actually had long-term plans, this might have meant something. But now since they are closer to the "booking on the fly" method, this doesn't mean too much. But having 2 people who will surely not be in a match at the PPV on the pre-promo poster is strange.
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
Another good example of a misleading poster was the Backlash '99 poster. I remember Mick Foley being PROMENETLY displayed on the poster (not sure if there was some sort of message on there or not), but I DO remember EVERYONE expecting Foley to be challenging for the title at Backlash '99. (Partly due to the poster, and partly due to the fact the he has challenged for the title at the 96, 97 AND 98 post-WrestleMania PPVs)
I think the only time such a WCW scoop hit me the way they intended was when they gave away the Higher Power identity by saying his initials were VKM. I was more disappointed with the WWF taking the easy route; I was roting for DiBiase.
