This is a bad gimmick draw for Jericho. There's no way he'll put away Bruno with a Bearhug or a backbreaker, but Bruno's power can fairly easily cause Jericho to tap to the Walls.

Yeah wow worst draw ever for Y2J. I mean, not only would he struggle to put him away with the Bearhug, he's exactly the type of maineventer I could imagine being made to tap to his own finisher by the beloved babyface. Both in kayfabe and via logical booking, this goes to Sammartino. Jericho's best hope is definitely the backbreaker - Bruno's powerful but only 265lb, shouldn't be a problem. I just can't see it being enough.

Sammartino wins via the Walls 20m in.

Backbreaker & Codebreaker are so similar it's uncanny. I'd love Jericho to win and to be honest, his technical skill could really do this. However Sammartino is a legend amongsten and could really easily put Jericho out with his own finisher.

Not decided yet.

Fun fact; Jericho rarely beats the elite stars of wrestling with his own wrestling hold.

Now you expect me to believe he'll beat Bruno Sammartino, a guy who at his elderly age may be stronger than Jericho, by hoisting him up for a bearhug?

Thanks, no thanks. Bruno's more important in the pantheon of professional wrestling, he's the better draw (perhaps in the top five of draws), and the gimmick favors him. Bruno isn't the most technical of wrestlers, but yes, I fully believe he can apply a boston crab. And if he does? He may crush Jericho.

Bruno takes this.

Hmm, I think you're thinking of the Back Cracker, used by Carlito. Sammartino's are more of the standard backbreaker variety, lifting and slamming down over a knee. He also uses something similar to the Gory Special, lifting in Razors Edge position and stretching over back (see the last move in the following clip)

I'd put my money right now on Buno STILL being able to take his match. At almost 80 the guy still has more power than Jericho.

Are there disqualifications in this match? If Jeri could break all bruno's ribs with a sledge, he could take it but... Yeah, thats not going to happen. Theres nothing Jericho could do to take he win. Good match with anothe gimmick, but this makes it easy.

Bruno used to legitimately hold the world bench press record. Chris Jericho's arms look like they belong in a bowl of spaghetti.

At the end of the day, Jericho's ONLY chance would be to knock Bruno out cold and put on a bearhug to win by referee's stoppage. The problem with that is knocking Bruno out, and that's not something Jericho is going to be able to do. Bruno's game is all power, and if he cranks on Jericho in a Boston crab, this ends and it ends in a hurry.

Bruno wins and there's nothing Jericho can do about it.

A question about the logistics of the match: can the opponent submit during a maneuver that is not the designated finishing hold? If this happens, does the match simply continue, or would the traditional victor be disqualified for making his opponent submit using a non-sanctioned move? Are weapons/outside interference legal?

What I'm getting at is...if there's any way for Jericho to pull out a dirty win in accordance with the rules, this gives him FAR GREATER of a chance to win than he is being given thus far.
