I don't see anything but I assume you posted the Jericho debut. I was going to post it today, too. Damn, where did those 20 years go??


This was easily the best debut of the Attitude era, even though pretty much every smark knew the Millennium Countdown was for Jericho's debut. The timing of Jericho's new song and video on the Titan Tron, combined with the lights coming back on as the word "JERICHO" flashed on the screen was picture perfect. What an awesome pop. I didn't think his initial promo was all that special, though. He could have got a decent rub from The Rock (who was white hot and probably more over than Austin or anyone else in wrestling that summer) but instead he was made to look like a bit of a fool, but that was Vince's m.o. It makes Flair's mega push in 1991 look all the more impressive.

Coming from WCW the way he was booked at the end, I had no problem with his debut being a little comedic. He played the role perfectly, and The Rock’s Juventud joke popped me huge.
