[1998-11-09-WCW-Nitro] Chris Jericho and Goldberg

Recommended Posts

Jericho has a new great hairstyle. It's his birthday and he's back on Long Island, where he was born. And he says he's glad he left because this place sucks! JERICHO - 4, GREENBERG - 0. Chris points out that the "Goldberg" chant sounds a lot like "Boring". Jericho says Ralphus confirmed for him that Goldberg is not in the building, as Ralphus confirmed for him. Gene isn't so sure that's right. We see Goldberg arriving in the building during Jericho's interview unaware of what is being said and watching on the monitor before getting mad at what's on the monitor and tearing up his dressing room. Goldberg runs to the ring and appears at the entrance ramp without Jericho's knowledge. He ends up spearing Jericho into next week, with Jericho taking a ridiculous bump. This was sadly the blowoff to the feud and the end of Jericho's WCW push. Jericho writes about this in his book, but he put together this segment himself and did a great job. This is an example of WCW being dreadfully out of touch, even though looking back Jericho wasn't as over in 1998 as it seemed like he was at the time.

Jericho does another great promo in what is pretty much his parting shot of relevance in his WCW run. I didn't think Jericho had that classic match in 1998 but his character work was great throughout the year and he still could have been pushed much better.
