Talk is Jericho Recap – Live Q&A with Jericho, Success of WCW’s Cruiserweight Division, Best Friend in the Wrestling Business, More!
He notes that Owen would be tremendous in today’s wrestling universe. He was so talented and a great character, but was tremendously fluid in the ring as well. When he got in the ring with people who could draw that out of him it was magic. If Owen wouldn’t have passed he would have been able to work with guys like Eddie Guerrero and Jericho, and that would have made for some great matches.
A fan asks Jericho to name the most emotional match he’s wrestled in. Jericho says his match with Kenny Omega at the Tokyo Dome was very emotional because it was two Winnipeg guys main eventing a wrestling show in the Tokyo Dome. The fact that it was something different and really boosted business helped as well.
Another very emotional match was the Ladder match he had with Shawn Michaels at No Mercy 2009. He informs that match wasn’t supposed to happen because they were originally only supposed to have a one-off match. That one-off match turned into a 7 month feud that culminated with a Championship match that main-evented a PPV. He’s very proud of that.
Another fan asks Jericho what made WCW’s Cruiserweight division so special? Jericho says it was the talent. Their cruiserweight roster consisted of seasoned veterans who had experience and really propped up that division. He thinks the cruiserweight division was the secondary reason WCW beat WWE in the ratings for a year, just behind the nWo. He points out that the main event match weren’t always great at that time, but the cruiserweight guys always had great matches.
