Is the reason they made Jericho credible because of Axel?

  1. Jericho recently has been on a semi-hot run, and has seemingly dropped the dance-off's and comedic shit. He's going over some credible stars (Swagger), getting lots of good mic time, coming off best in most segments, among other hints. He has a random match with Punk, which most think won't happen, and think Axel will take Punk's place. Has Jericho been built up again so when he lets another guy over him, it actually means something?

    Axel over Jericho could be fantastic.
     
  2. Makes sense, but I still wished he was more built up again than he was. I still can't help but think of him as someone who just about tops the list of Most Likely To Job Tonight If He Wrestles every time I watch Raw. However, to be fair, he has enough accolades and is established enough that a loss to Axel will still make Axel look good. I could even see Curtis Axel cutting a delusional promo saying he's technically better than Austin and Rock too since he just beat a guy who once defeated the two of them back to back in the same night. I mean, he already thinks he's surpassed both his father and grand father's legacies by defeating a fainting HHH by count out...
     
  3. Well, if that's the reason it's a great decision and has been very well done.
     
  4. This makes a lot of sense.... so no.

  5. No I think it'll go down like this. Punk will be at the PPV and fight Jericho, but I think Axel will get involved which sets up a nice rivalry that has some time to brew and then Axel'll go over on Jericho. It's much more effective than something as sporadic as a Zubat encounter in a cave.
