Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho – WrestleMania 19
Chris Jericho vs Shawn Micheals – WrestleMania 19
The match starts off with some of the ‘evenly matched chain-wrestling’ that some have grown to hate. I don’t watch indy wrestling, so it’s still cool to me. Great spot that soon follows is Jericho going for the bulldog, and Shawn launching him crotch first into a turnbuckle. Later, Jericho works the back by applying The Walls outside the ring, then smashing Shawn’s back into the ringpost twice before discarding him like so much trash. Awesome. I absolutely love it when Jericho kips up and does the Shawn-Flex, great taunt. There’s a million great spots to mention here, but honestly I was just all sorts of sucked in to the match. It’s incredible. Easily one of the best ‘new guy vs established star’ match. And Jericho kicking him in the junk afterwards is GOLD.
Shawn gets the roll up and the pin at 22:34 | ****3/4
