Y2J Debut

Read about Chris' debut

The Rock is in the ring, on the mic, addressing The Big Show and The Undertaker, when he is interrupted by the "Countdown To The Millennium" which counts down to zero. There is a light display, before the entrance ramp explodes with pyrotechnics. The Music starts, and images appear on the TitanTron. Then the word JERICHO, is flashed onto the screen, the crowd goes wild. Chris Jericho appears on the entrance ramp.

Chris Jericho: "Welcome To RAW IS JERICHO"

(Pause, while Jericho blows kisses to the audience.)

"And I am the new millennium for the WWF."

(The fans cheer.)

"Now for those of you who don't know me, I am Chris Jericho. Your new hero, your party host, and most importantly the most charismatic showman ever to enter your living room through the medium of television, and for those of you who don't know me, all hail the Ayatolla of Rock 'N' Rolla."

"Now When you think of the new millennium, you think of an event so gigantic that it changes the course of history. You think of a dawning of a new age, in this case a dawning of a new era for the World Wrestling Federation."

(Crowd Chants his name.)

"Thank You, Thank You."

"And a new era is what this once proud and profitable organization sorely needs. What was once a captivating and trend setting program has now deteriorated into a clichéd, lets be honest, boring snooze fest that is in sore need of a knight in shining armour. And that's why I am here. Chris Jericho has come to save the WWF."

(Audience starts to boo him.)

Now lets go over the facts. Television ratings, downward spiral. Pay Per View buy rates, plummeting. Main stream acceptance, non-existent... and reaction of the live crowd: complete and utter silence, and I know why you're silent. You're silent because you are embarrassed to be here, and quite honestly, I'm embarrassed for you. And the reason that you're embarrassed is because of the steady stream of uninteresting, untalented, mediocre, "Sports Entertainers" who you are forced to cheer for. No wonder you're not cheering. You couldn't care less about every single idiot on that dressing room and especially this idiot in the center of the ring."

(The audience members are really boo-ing him now.)

"You people have been lead to believe that mediocrity is excellence, uh-uh, JERICHO IS EXCELLENCE, and now for the first time in WWF history you have a man who can entertain you. You have a man who is good enough for you. You have a man who can make you jump up off your seats, raise your filthy little hands in the air, and scream: 'GO JERICHO GO. GO JERICHO GO. GO JERICHO GO.'"

(The fans start chanting along with Jericho.)

"Thank You."

"The new millennium has arrived, and now that the Y2J problem is here. This company, from the front office idiots, to all the amateurs in the dressing room, including this one, to everyone watching tonight, will nev-E-E-E-ever be the same again."

The Rock:
(Pause, the crowd are in anticipation.)

"After 3 boring minutes, The Rock says Know Your Role, and shut your mouth. How dare you little, jabroni, come on The Rock's show, and not even have the class to introduce yourself. What is your name?"

Chris Jericho:

"I told you it's ...."

The Rock:

"It doesn't matter what your name is."

(Crowd cheers for The Rock.)

"The Rock says that you talk about your Y2J plan, well The Rock, has a little plan of his own. He calls it the KY Jelly plan. Which means that The Rock is going to take his size 13 boot, lube it up real good, turn that son-bitch
sideways. And stick it straight up your candy ass."

"If you smellllll...What The Rock..Is cooking"

(The Rock's music plays.)
