Originally posted by JustinShapiroAs cool as it would've been for Jericho to show up and win, I'm glad that whatever they have/had planned for him will continue as planned instead of getting cut short after just two of those things.
As much as I'd love to see Jericho again, I think I need to point out that his chances of "saving us all" are pretty slim considering the same people that decided it would be a good idea for Mat Hardy to vomit on MVP after a PPV Deep Dish Pizza Eating Contest will be writing for him too.
I can honestly say that was the best world title match I've seen this year. Too bad about the outcome though.

What about Yokozuna's 'reign' at Wrestlemania IX?

An excellent point. In fact, a Wiki page has it:
1. Andre, 45 seconds 2. Yokozuna, 2 minutes 37 seconds 3. Orton last night, 24 minutes 4. HHH last night, 2 hours 24 minutes 5. Hogan, Bret Hart, Kane, Mankind, Orton's second reign from last night (current) - tied at 1 day.
Additionally, in terms of days holding major title(s), Ric Flair is credited by PWI with 16 titles for a combined 3,500 days. This puts him 4th behind Verne Gagne, Bruno Sammartino, and Lou Thesz. HHH is currently in 14th, 11 titles for 876 days total.
Besides Gagne, Jeff Jarrett has also booked himself into 12th on the all time list.
Since the usual suspects (Meltzer et al) appear to have let this news pass them by, I thought I'd post it here. It appears that Hell in a Cell drew approximately 210,000 buys and Bragging Rights drew approx. 140,000 buys.
