  1. Who in their prime was the better superstar? Vote and post why :)
  2. Jericho imo because he wasn't as good at selling but in ring he was almost as good and on the mic far far superior imo.
  3. Who took down the two faces of WWF for each a world championship? :jericho:
  4. Jericho, Codebreaker > Crappy kick.
  5. Jericho. But I am bias cause I never liked HBK. XD
  6. Undisputed Champion.


    (Hey I like HBK too!)
  7. Always liked HBK's matches better, mostly because of his strangely funny charisma and selling. Two of my all time favorite matches include him, HBK vs Undertaker WM 25 and the HIAC HBK vs Undertaker.

    Jericho/HBK's unsanctioned and ladder matches rank high up too, but considering taker is my all time favorite I rate those two a lot higher :)
  8. Shawn IMO was in his prime in 2005 - 2007, he cut the best promos of his career especially against Hogan, in ring he was always stellar however. Jericho was at his best during the honest man gimmick in 2008-2009. I'll compare these two the best I can.

    Shawn was the better seller, however Jericho understood psychology a lot better. Jericho had the better moveset IMO, Shawn was more flash but Jericho made heel working an art form that very few have matched.

    Jericho still cut stronger promos during this time than anyone else for at least 4 years IMO. He was that good, he made me hate him and still does to this day especially how he stripped everything which made him enjoyable in the Y2J gimmick. I was never overly impressed with Shawn on the mic, however he was very good during this time.

    My answer is Jericho, in ring it was very close with Chris just edging it based upon my personal preference, the promos were Jericho's by a larger margin but still very close.
  9. Choosing between them is tough man. I'd say HBK is flashier but Jericho has a vaster moveset and beats him by a tiny bit on the mic work, on the charisma section it's a draw I think.
  10. Very close. I go with HBK, just on having some sort of "X Factor" that makes his matches memorable. He gave his all every match it seemed.

    I love Chris Jericho though, and I think he is the better athlete, but Shawn Michaels is the better wrestler. Once again, I don't know, he just has the "it" factor that made him a legend.
  11. Jericho :)
  12. I like Jericho, Brilliant on the mic, and fantastic in-ring ability!
