Not sure why this doesn’t get talked about more. Nobody, and I mean nobody in the history of the wrestling business has reinvented themselves more often, done so successfully, and done so over decades like Jericho has. The undertaker is the only one who can stake a claim to this.
The Lionheart in WCW, Y2J in the WWE, first ever undisputed champion in WWE history, the flashing leather jacket gimmick, the whole list thing, the Kevin Owens storyline to put him over, and now as a faction leader with the inner circle. I realize other people got bigger, sold more merch, and are more famous. The Rock for example. However, the Rock was the same exact character with the same exact catch phrases for years. The same with Hulk Hogan other than the heel turn and the NWO direction for a few years.
Face, heel, tag team partner, faction, short hair, long hair, fit, fat, young, old, it doesn’t matter, Jericho has always knocked whatever character he was playing at the time out of the park. He’s the goat, period.
