So many of my other choices for this Best Two series has come from "yesteryear" in professional wrestling - retired Hall of Famers who hve left their mark on so many events.
But what about current superstar and future HOF'er (and my #1 all time favorite) Chris Jericho. This is his tenth year with WWE, and he's been wrestling for more than 20. And his matches list is like a who's who and what's what of classics that nobody saw coming.
Chris Jericho vs Triple H - Monday Night Raw 04/17/2000
The Jericho / HHH feud of 2000 and on saw MANY chapters. Last Man Standing. Hell in a Cell. Wrestlemania 18.
But at State College, PA on this fateful day in April of 2000, Jericho came out while HHH and the McMahons were being themselves, and insulted the crap outta Steph, before finally telling Vince McMahon that he was a genius who created the billion-dollar WWF to compensate for the fact that he has a very small penis.
Jericho went on to wrestle Triple H in a sudden title match, hitting a lionsault for a fast 1,2,3. The decision was later reversed, and the title match not recognized.
Now as a HUGE Jericho fan, I watched this match with my original Jericho t-shirt in my college dorm room. When Jericho scored the pin, I broke a stolen chair and ran around the hallways, hearing classmates yell "GAME OVER" as I pounded on their doors. It was like a celebration for the entire dorm, and I was the only true Y2J fan there. I mean, I FUCKING CRIED!
Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania 19
A card with so many epic matches, everyone KNEW this one would be an all-timer. Michaels was already a legend, and Jericho was just a year removed from being the 1st EVER Undisputed Champ. These two guys put on a CLINIC, and it is one of my favorite Wrestlemania matches of all time.
After Jericho matches and feuds with Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Saturn, Raven, Juvi, Triple H, Michaels, Cena, Guerrero, Angle, The Rock and SO MANY OTHERS, what are YOUR Chris Jericho "Best Two?"
