Among the many things Chris Jericho knows how to do well is make a memorable first impression. His 1999 debut, which saw
him revealed as the Superstar behind the mysterious Y2J millennium countdown, remains one of the most brilliant entrances
of all time. Believe it or not, Jericho managed to out-do himself when he re-debuted in 2007 as the savior behind a cryptic
The importance of Jericho's original debut was heightened by the fact that he came over from World Championship Wrestling
during the height of the Monday Night Wars. Making an instant impact, he captured the Intercontinental Championship just
four months into his tenure. The victory proved to be the first of many title reigns for Y2J.
Following the championship win, Jericho's charisma and athleticism placed him in the center of many memorable WWE
moments, including a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 2000 that saw both the Intercontinental and European
Championship defended. However, Jericho's greatest moment came in December 2001 when he defeated both The Rock and "Stone Cold"
Steve Austin in one night to become the Undisputed WWE Champion.
Chris Jericho lays things out
Chris Jericho was a guest on the Cheap Heat show this week and while talking about returning to WWE in the future, he
made it clear that we won't be seeing him return for nothing feuds like the one he engaged in with Fandango leading into a
match between the two at WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey.
"It's not a bad thing and I'm not saying this in a bad way but I don't want another Fandango situation, which I enjoyed

years, I plan to continue to do that. If it's just a sidetrack kind of ancillary thing, I'm not really interested in
that," Jericho said.
Jericho's return at Royal Rumble last year was incredibly well received but his feud and eventual match with Fandango,
while certainly entertaining, wasn't all that memorable. Fandango was on his way to getting over, rolling "Y2J" up and
beating him at WrestleMania 29, but Jericho won the rematch at Extreme Rules and the Fandangoing craze died out rather
quickly when WWE decided to push it down fan's throats.
