LOL

Jericho mentioned that he was sued by him in his second book, and blew him out of water pretty much by saying "wrestling is fake dumbass"

Larry was never pissed at Jericho until the book came out.  McMahon sent Larry a letter saying he was giving him advance notice he was going to use "the Living Legend" for Jericho.  No money offered.  he was just going to take it.  Larry said bullshit to that and blocked WWE from using it.  Larry didn't get mad at Jericho until Chris decided to take a shot at him in the book.

Jericho also shit all over Scott Hall in his book even though Scott put over Chris on Nitro AGAINST the office's wishes.  There will be an upcoming Last Call with Scott Hall featuring that match with commentary from Scott and Larry.

Jericho was being a prick.  That's why Larry is pissed.

he actually wrote the book himself with no ghost writer.  It didn't suck.  I'm curious why you thought it sucked?

Because the first 47 pages were blank until he finally got started.

I think the interviewers were kind of prickish trying to bait Larry into calling Jericho a homosexual.  I admire Zbyszko for not taking the bait, and instead just saying that Jericho's a jerk because of what he said, not because of his irrelevant sexual orientation.

Really?  Unlike most wrestling books the first three chapters were NOT just about his humble beginnings.  Page 17 is where he starts talking about being Bruno's protege and his start in the business.  I thought the book was too short and I wanted more, but suck?  Nope...to each his own.

I don't wish to be offensive, but are you autistic?

what DO you wish to be..an asshole?

So are you Mister Saint Laurent or Larry Z himself?  No one else would care this much or be so stupid as to miss the obvious joke the guy was making

Larry Z is a bitter old dipshit, nothing more-  Jericho will be remembered more than Larry ever will

Maybe because of the mainstream attention that wrestling is getting, but I never considered Jericho anything special other than being another two-bit entertainer in sports entertainment. 

I suppose Jericho will be remembered longer with there being a younger audience, but I do not think Jericho is better than Zbyszko in their respective roles of when they were professional wrestling or sports entertaining.

I remember 1 Larry fued that was memorable(Sammartino in WWWF), the rest of his runs were minor in feds that were dying or not used correctly(like was alluded to earlier). Jericho I can name 5(Mysterio in WCW, Malenko in WCW, Mysterio in WWF/E, Cena in WWF/E, Edge in WWF/E) and there are memorable matches he had also(like with HBK, Hogan, Rock, etc)

The younger audience doesn't play into this, because a majority of WWE fans today, were not watching when there was a huge territory system or feds like WCW, ECW, AWA, etc

Well, yes, after his WWWF run with Bruno, he never went back, so, technically, he was in dying feds the rest of the life since they all died except WWWF/WWF/WWE.

I am talking about the young children of today.  It is simple math.

I cannot name you one feud with Jericho.

See how it works.

It all depends on the age of fans and when they were fans.

I think this is definitely "Old School vs New School" 

I believe you can argue that the one feud you mentioned, Larry vs Bruno, is one of the all-time great feuds and by itself trumps the Jericho feuds you mentioned.   There were others that merit mention though.  In the 70s Larry and Tony Garea vs The Valiants was a memorable feud.  Larry's feud with Nick Bockwinkel battling over the AWA World Title that in retrospect may still have been more important than any of the titles Jericho has won given that titles do not matter much any more.  His feud in WCW against Scott Hall was also a good one.  A great angle was his selling of the National Title on Georgia Championship Wrestling broadcast nationwide on TBS.

I'm not trying to put down Chris.  I like Chris and some of his work.  But his major accomplishments have come in the last decade for the most part and like so many have said on this board so many times, it's not like it used to be. 

Some have said here that Zbyszko is a bitter old man.  Wouldn't you be if the business you spent most of your adult life in has changed so much that the primary wrestling company doesn't even want to call it wrestling?  Seems reasonable to me and count him among many of the oldtimers that think today's "product" is an embarrasment.

All the deaths, all the stupid people who don't know how to save their money, and what it used to be versus what it turned into.

You see the "bitter" terminology being used mostly by people trying to compare the new product to the old product.  It was used alot by the Hulkamaniacs when the comparisons would come up between Bruno and Hogan.  Now, people just throw it out there anytime there is a debate like this one between a newer star and an older star.  The older one seems to always get tagged with the bitter label.

Wrestlers go through their career with little respect from people outside of their peers and wrestling fans.  When they retire, they're generally left with not a ton of money, a good deal of physical pain, and little respect from the real world in which they now have to live, and no regular periods of getting pops and respect from the fans and peers.  I have to imagine that it leaves a lot of old wrestlers with empty feelings inside.
