I've been flipping back and forth all night at the points I thought he might show (basically the beginning of every hour) and at the end of Raw, Jericho came back.  He's always been one of my favorites and given the build they gave him, I have no clue whether they'd hand him the belt (as rusty as he probably is).  Nonetheless, I will TIVO at the minimum to watch Y2J.  I missed seeing him.

It really was a great, great build up.  The crowd killed it though.  Only a select few were making noise/jumping around.  Ringside looked dead.  Should have had that moment in Canada.  Winnipeg, maybe?  Isn't that Jericho's hometown?  There're having Ric Flair come back in Charlotte.  Shoulda brought Y2J back somewhere that would have made it more special.

Always liked him also. Funny to think he is the one to "save us".

I watch so sporadically that I hate to come on boards and say "What the hell?" because that is the "internet thing to do" but what is up with all of the TV time and emphasis for Hornswaggle? It isn't interesting even a little bit.

It's interesting now that they're using it to turn Finlay face.

As for Jericho, it was good to see him again.  They tried to recrate his first debut and this just couldn't live up to it but I'm glad he's back.

I didn't see it, what happened in regards to Jericho? And where was Raw at tonight?

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  Nothing really happened, he came out and confronted Randy Orton.  I think it's a little rushed to put him in a program with the champ right away.  Maybe I'm crazy but I would've popped huge for a Jericho-Marella face-off.  And I'm not being sarcastic.  They'd be a lot better together and it would give Jericho a chance to build momentum.

In Jericho's first WWF/E debut - was it this well known he was coming in?

This seemed to be well known ahead of time. Ross & Lawler tried to make it sound like the crowd was going crazy for Jericho (and maybe they were) but it didn't come off that way on TV.

Please tell me the ratings tank for the Hornswoggle segments.

The fans have been chanting for Y2J for 2 months and everyone at the arena already had the signs.  The crowd just wasn't particularly good, it's Florida for God's sake.  But I didn't think it was that bad.

My first impression was the crowd was dead for his return but after they turned down his music for him to talk it was pretty loud. Although they did show crowd shots of people not reacting at all. I blame HHH for sabotaging his return. :)

I was interested enough to tune in as well. I was a bit dissappointed that Jericho pulled out some of his old stuff (never, ehhhhhver) but was overall entertained with the segment. Unlike the Booker T segment over on TNA, this was enough to get me to tune in next week.

Yeah. The crowd was going bananas, it just didn't come off over his loud-ass music. It was pretty much a sustained pop for over five minutes. The pop for his "Never! Ever!" bit was huge.

I agree with srossi's post on having him come in right away to feud with the champ. They're not going to put the belt on him, so where does he go from there? Right back to the upper mid-card? Nah, I see him hanging around the title for quite a while, at least all through winter.

As for the rest of RAW, I enjoyed it quite a bit (I missed most of the Holly-Rhodes match and whatever the next segment was) but I pretty much liked everything I saw. Hardy's always good for some sick bumps and HHH saving him was a nice touch and makes Hardy seem like a player. Hornswaggle and Carlito was crap, but I like that this could lead to a face Finlay.

Snitsky still sucks. He reminds me of an Aldi's version of Kane now (anyone else familiar with discount grocer Aldi's?).

Lastly, after not watching for about 2-3 months, everyone looks a bit thinner that last I saw. Sign o the times.

Was there anyone not expecting Jericho ? It would have been better if
there was no break the code nonsense & have him show up
unexpectedly. The crowd would have gone apeshit.

Yes, and it's a good analogy.

By the way, how much longer before someone figures out that the "Y2J" formation is an ongoing advertisement for being outdated?

I thought the same thing.

"Y2J' was a knock off on "Y2K". You know 12-31-1999 at midnight everything was going to go haywire.

Eight years later they are still using it. Would have been the perfect time to bring him back without that even if you were going the unimaginitive route and using an old name "Lionheart" Chris Jericho.
