And now he gets "hurt" (which, btw, I thought for sure was a work, and he was going to come in at the end and pin Punk - I'm sure Vince didn't do that because it was "predictable"), there's a backstage segment with him getting medical attention alluding to something more and then...nothing.
Yeah, they've made Jericho look pretty bad since the Rumble. I'm just hoping they don't **** this up....
It makes me wonder if it's all tied to the difficulties they (supposedly) had getting him re-signed and if he's being punished. Although at the same time, I think those difficulties were probably a work, too. Either way, it doesn't seem like a very main event way to treat a guy. They certainly haven't cut any of this horrendous Cena bullshit that everyone in the world hates to fit in diva matches or backstage fart scetches.
Along that line, I'm sure we'll see plenty of Cena/Kane/Ryder/Eve tonight. Rock isn't due to appear live until next week.
And it seemed pretty obvious after the first match that they were stalling for time with all those stupid Santino segments (although I'll admit, he made the SD Chamber watchable), Cena promo videos and that really stupid Gabriel/Thwagger segment. So I haven't got a clue why they didn't give an update on Jericho until after the show...
Ryder had to go through a bunch of shit to even think about a re-match for the US Title, but Gabriel gets a shot just by defending the little guy backstage? Makes no sense.
