When we call Chris Jericho the GOAT, we don’t say it for the sake of it. We actually mean it. Why? Well, there are 1,004 reasons to say that. A few reasons among those would be great wrestling IQ, injury-free career, global experience, draw, great on mic, and even greater on commentary!
Cody Rhodes came out for his match against Matt Sydal with Snoop Dogg accompanying him. Throughout the match, Snoop stood on the outside and cheered for Cody, but it was after the match that the Hip-Hop legend took matters into his own hands.
Luther and Serpentico jumped Cody and Sydal following their match. Sydal took out Luther and kicked Serpentico. Cody followed with a Bodyslam, and just as it looked like Sydal was going up for the Shooting Star Press, Snoop Dogg insisted to go on top!
Chris Jericho went completely bonkers seeing Snoop Dogg climb the top rope. He was literally screaming and asking what Snoop was doing. He added the little things like, “Does he even have a wrestler’s license?” or “No, this isn’t an official match!”
Jericho hilariously called Snoop Dogg a ‘human piece of spaghetti’ and even sold his height as 9 ft tall. On commentary, Jericho often reminds one of Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler due to his constant state of excitement. Anyway, all’s well that ends well as Chris Jericho and Snoop Dogg later hugged it out and embraced each other after the segment.
‘Le Champion‘ turned commentator on the New Year’s Smash Night 1 this week on Dynamite. He joined the loaded commentary booth of Good Ol’ JR, Tony Schiavone, and Excalibur. Honestly, having Jericho on commentary was one of the best decisions AEW could’ve ever made.
Every time the ‘Demo God’ is on commentary, it is a fun night. Chris Jericho isn’t your typical color commentator or a play-by-play commentator; he has his unique style that gives the product a pleasant touch. He adds valuable yet funny stuff on commentary and does not repeat what his partners at the table have said.
Once his in-ring career is over, Jericho would very easily transition to the commentary team. He’s a brilliant talker, so it’s obvious where all that funny commentary is coming from.
When he talks, it feels like some cocky heel is narrating, and that’s really good. He makes you care or despise an event or character, something you struggle to do in modern professional wrestling.
