In Jim Ross’ latest blog entry, good ol’ JR provides his detailed thoughts on Chris Jericho’s return to Monday Night Raw:
For the record, I liked it. Also, to be honest, about half way through the presentation, I was having my doubts. Then I saw what I perceived that Jericho was attempting to accomplish and thought that his presentation was unique and certainly unpredictable.
The theory behind producing an episodic, entertainment program like Monday Night Raw is to always provide some measure of a pay off, don’t give away the farm, and to always make sure that the broadcast leaves the air with the fans wanting more and willing to return next week to see the ‘rest of the story.’
Even though, like many fans, I would have enjoyed hearing what Y2J had to say about why he has chosen this point in time to return, I fully understand the episodic nature of the beast. I am interested in Jericho’s return and will tune in next Monday night to hopefully learn more of this storyline.
By saying absolutely nothing and by using facial expressions and body English, Jericho actually said volumes. At least that’s how I felt after the segment ended. The fans in Memphis seemed to be getting peeved at Jericho who they had just cheered moments earlier. Was that the intent? Stay tuned.
