[1998-06-04-WCW-Thunder] Chris Jericho and Dean Malenko


Recommended Posts

Dean Malenko is facing Silver King when Jericho comes out and rings the bell. He hits the ring and says Malenko's title reign is through. Jericho has found an NWA rulebook from 1934 in the Library of Congress, citing the Ed "The Strangler" Lewis loophole which states that the champion has first right of refusal for any contenders. Jericho demands Malenko return the title and starts insulting Malenko's dad, which leads to Malenko laying Jericho out with the belt to a big pop. Jericho comes across as a guy trying too hard in some of these segments, but he's still a breath of fresh air.

Jericho ringing the bell was awesome. He has the Ed Strangler Lewis loophole which actually may be legit after the original Montreal Screwjob incident. Jericho tells Dean to give it to him and Dean responds by socking him with the belt. This really should have resulted in a long grudge match at GAB with Dean winning and Jericho being elevated and finding other stuff to do.
