3: Chris Jericho vs. Fandango
Chris Jericho shocked everyone by returning at the Royal Rumble as the second entrant, starting the match with his recent rival, Dolph Ziggler. From there, it looked like they would continue their feud from the late part of last summer, but unfortunately their rivalry seemed to just disappear. From there, Jericho eventually was paired up with the WWE’s newest superstar, Fandango.
Upper management must have a hell of a lot of faith in Fandango, since he hasn’t wrestled once on television refusing to compete due to announcers and superstars alike mispronouncing his name. It’s an extremely risky move letting an untested talent debut on The Grandest Stage of Them All, but they seem to have compensated for that fact by pairing him with the experienced Jericho. Y2J is certainly capable of making Fandango look good, and I’m sure he’d be happy to do it. Jericho is by far the most unselfish superstar on the roster, preferring to build the younger talent over holding the bigger championships.
I wish Y2J would win, but he’ll probably put Fandango over.
