Title: Who will Jericho's partner be?
Post by: Adampro123 on 14 July 2009, 08:04:22 PM
just thought we could discuss and speculate who jericho will pick as his tag team partner. at this point im really not sure who jericho would want to pick beings that he sets himslef up to be so high and mighty im not sure anyone would be on his level in his mind.


but there are some guys out there who he could pick. here's my thoughts on a few.

Chris Masters

we know he got resigned and we just been waiting on him to come back so maybe this could be how he does it.

Lance Cade


who knows WWE could resing him between now and NOC. i liked the him and jericho team and they could pick up where they left off last year.

Shelton Benjamin

of course you'll sat i mention him because he's my favorite right? well no im really just mentioning him because he isn't really in any feud right now.

William Regal

Same as above

The Miz

Same as above. plus with there online little mini feud it would just be nice to see.

Ezeikiel Jackson

Jericho might want to get a big guy for a partner and zeik looked impressive on ECW last week.

then there's a chance for kane and kozlov but they are both in feuds somewhat.
and they could put him with charlie haas to give haas a well deserved push IMO.


thoughts?

I want it to be Chris Masters, I think it would be a good way to bring him back onto TV.

That being said, I'm betting it ends up being someone like Kane.

My two bets are that his partner will either be Dolph Ziggler or The Brian Kendrick. Kendrick was looking for a tag-team partner a while back anyway, and if you ask me I believe their images together would actually match so he has to be at least a contender in this thread. If you want to nail it down to who it's gonna be, the set requirements would be at least Upper-Mid Card although it's hard to find anyone like that.

I'd love to see Dolph be the partner though!

It's Cody Rhodes. He'll do the samething he did at last year's Night Of Champions, he'll screw over Ted which will begin his face turn.  Carlito will then take Cody's place in Legacy.

Lance Cade was fucked over in his release. He doesn't want to resign and he's currently working in Japan, so you won't see him on your TV.

I don't remember the story but from what I remember Cade had a seizure on a plane and needing emergency medical care lucky Lillian was there to get the EMTs. Couple days after he was released.

From what I remember that seizure was due to drugs Cade was taking, but I'd have to double check that...

And do you know the reason why he had that seizure?

"He made a major league mistake while utilizing bad judgment" - JR.

It's obvious he must have been watching Rikishi matches.

So in what way was he screwed?

Wrong is wrong for what he did, however releasing him a day after his seizure isn't cool.

When you breach your contract (ie: taking drugs that arent prescribed for you), the wwe has grounds to terminate your contract whether or not you harmed yourself in the process...

I'm thinking either The Miz, Ziggler, Masters, Ezekiel, Kendrick. What's happening with Mike knox is he still even on the roster and in a good fighting condition as it could be him?
Hope it's not The Big Show.

This would never happen but I just had a thought of Orton teaming with Jericho as Edge was a big star like Orton and Orton is having problems with Legacy.

1. Ralphus- I heard he is one the comeback trail.

2. Chris Benoit- He and his family are just working the most elaborate angle of all time.

3. HBK- He is going to comeback as a hell and dominate.

It's not going to be dolph or show because they will more than likely have there own title matches at NOC with rey and kofi.

Post by: Dale on 16 July 2009, 08:22:46 PM
It's going to be Rikishi. He just got added onto the main news on wwe.com a few days ago. He's a good honest man like Jericho is looking for. "I did it for you Rock" remember?

The amount of people who it could be are insane which is good because it will lead to some unpredictability (hopefully) and bad because it's annoying not knowing who it will be :lol

I just think that they need to pair Jericho with someone who he can give a rub to and possibly help to advance. I just want to see him paired with someone who's already established like Kane, Big Show, Regal etc.

I wouldn't be mad if Masters was made the partner, or maybe even a Kendrick but I would love to see it being Carlito. It probably won't happen but they could play into the fact that he turned on his brother after he cost them the chance of regaining of the titles.

Christian would be the perfect person, they should have moved him in the 15 Superstar Trade.

It's going to be Shawn Michaels.

The WWE have just re signed Eugene so it may well be. But personally i would like it to be Rikishi just beacause it will be something fresh and unpredictable but i am not bothered to much as long as it is not boring Big Show, and its far too early for a HBK return yet ... wait till Summerslam maybe !

Has anyone considered finlay yet? i mean he doesn't seem to be doing anything on smackdown at the moment.

Post by: jaythorne on 18 July 2009, 11:44:06 AM
Matt Hardy - he may be injured, but he can come back, help win the titles with Jericho and then be a champ but let Jericho do most of the work until he is 100%

There's also plenty of other guys who aren't doing anything who would be a far better option that Finlay.

True just a mid carder that seemed to be forgotten about.

another guy that's a really long shot is Ricky the Dragon. but just another name to throw out there for the speculation.

Maybe Jericho needs a towel? I know someone who could give him a towel...:)

They could do a huge swerve and do something nobody is expecting, and go with a female - perhaps getting some power with Beth Phoenix; who would expect the team to be intergender?

That would be new (Y)

Personally, I love this idea, it makes her the heel Chyna/Trish Stratus.  I haven't heard this idea anywhere else and if she can actually hold her own in the ring with men I wouldn't mind this at all compared to the other ideas I've heard.  They both have the same type of personality and Beth needs to kick Santino to the curb and get on with her wrestling career because its going no where quickly.

So you're telling me that if Beth is the partner, and the 2 of them win...don't you think it would hurt the credibility of the people that Jericho and Beth defeat? Since Beth is a woman, and if a woman defeats u...sort of hurts the loser's credibility.

Meh Jericho used to feud with Chyna and that never hurt his credibility. Part of me is expecting a Jericho and Christian reunion. If not someone like Kozlov or Ezekiel.

I'm starting to get a feeling that Chris Jericho's partner will be.... Chris Jericho.

I could just imagine him coming down to the ring, after weeks of ranting about how his partner is perfect and has the same moral standards etc etc - then have Jericho fight the match on his own.

Gets him heat and it's an easy way for Legacy to win the tag belts without hurting Jerichos cred.

Post by: J.D on 22 July 2009, 03:54:36 PM
That is a really good idea in terms of how likely I could imagine it being. What if it was DiBiase and then Jericho and DiBiase feuded with Rhodes and Orton?
I like your idea more though.

Post by: RyPrax on 22 July 2009, 04:48:52 PM
I don't think it'll be someone from legacy... too predictable, and they just did that. (it is WWE though, so you never know...). I'm leaning towards kane, which would allow khali to get an appearance on the ppv.

Hardcore Holly will make his return 1 year after Ted and Cody screwed him and get his revenge!

now that would make sense...only problem is he doesn't work for WWE anymore but it would be a nice surprise if they secretly rehired him.

Would he have to be Softcore Holly these days?
