``I think it's unbelievable. My first thought was, I'd love to see Bill Goldberg in the ring with Brock Lesnar -- see who the man really is. Then, once they figure that out, they can see who can keep up with me.''
Uh... Hulk? Jimmy Hart and your nine-year old KID can keep up with you... Scott FREAKING Steiner can keep up with you! Kurt Angle, under anisthetic, can keep up with you. I don't think Bill or Brock have to lose sleep over this one.
Then Jericho said:
``We've had our differences in the past, but I'm looking forward to having him here, working with him, and beating him. I think he's going to make all of us a lot of money. I think he's going to make the fans very excited to check out future WWE broadcasts.''
Whether you agree or disagree on if he's being sincere, at least Jericho can play the propaganda game with the best of them. And Bill DeMott had the best line in the story:
``All I know is, this time, I won't be first.''

Where is The Great Thomas and his Smackdown! Reports when you need them (or at least a thread to append, a day later)? It's my life, my time, my rights, my rhyme. It's time for Sssssmackdown!, from Washington, DC...and a Fashion Report, too!
