Chris Jericho is simply the best thing about Raw for me, and this week was no exception. Alongside Kevin Owens, Jericho effortlessly makes me laugh once again with the most basic of premises.
Take his post Hell in a Cell promo with Mick Foley and Roman Reigns for example. Not only did he get a pop out of simply adding his name to the word "key", he is still no less popular for declaring his hatred of the entire United States and all of its people. Could we be going down the Lance Storm Canadian Championship line? Sadly, I think that his United States title match might have been a one-off, but the idea of Jeri-KO holding both belts is an attractive one. Can you imagine the arrogance? It would be amazing!
The gift of Jericho might have started as a catchphrase, but it really is not a gift that we should not take for granted.
Well, after all the initial hype and excitement of the fantasy match up made reality, we got a taste of what Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg may actually look like—botchy.
Making up for his previous lackluster promo, Paul Heyman was back on fine form to taunt and tease the former WCW Champion. Sadly, Goldberg did not really pull off his part in as a successful fashion. He bumbled and stumbled with an invading Rusev before he finally managing to hook him into a Jackhammer. A spear to Paul Heyman followed (which was exciting) but it was not enough to erase the memories of the fumble fest.
Goldberg would later take to Twitter to blame the incident on ring rust, which is understandable given he has been out for 12 years, but this brought a sharp dose of reality to the fact that this dream match may very well turn out to be something of a disappointing nightmare.
Extra Heat: Curt Hawkins.
Built up over 3 months. Destroyed in 6-seconds. Fact.
