The Cashbox: Three Reasons Why 1/2/12 Won’t Be Jericho

Nick Paglino

Chris JerichoEvery clue hidden within the "It Begins" videos for 1.2.12 seems to point to Chris Jericho. I certainly understand why most reasonably minded wrestling fans believe said videos are leading to his WWE return. It's logical.

And that's the very reason I don't think they are for Chris Jericho.

Actually, I have three reasons I feel this way:

1) It's TOO Logical

Vince McMahon and WWE, in general, rarely go with the most logical scenarios. Especially when it involves an angle such as this – a distant payoff and a ton of hype building up to it. Was there a plan in place when this idea was originally thought up? I'm sure there was, but I can only imagine how many times that plan has changed since it began.

Vince will use the person HE wants at the time of the reveal, regardless of who it was supposed to be two months prior. And logic? Screw logic. Vince will spin it however he wants to and wrestling fans will live with it.
