Who is Chris Jericho's partner?

This is an open thread for you to share your thoughts on who Chris Jericho's partner will be. I would create a poll for it, but there's just too many possibilities to do it justice. So here's all you have to do, just leave a comment below saying who you think will take Edge's place at Night of Champions.

For the record, my money is currently on William Regal.

  3. I personally think it will be Christian, with Jericho using the logic that he's like a better version of Edge. It's a believable, logical choice, and something I'd personally really like to see. I wouldn't be fussy if it was Miz, however.

  4. I think it'll be either Christian or Dolph Ziggler, as those are the two logical choices.

    But I can stil fantasize about cooler happenings such as:

    -Ted DiBiase does the mystery partner swerve just like Cody Rhodes did to Bob Holly to form Priceless in the first place, and takes the role that Lance Cade very briefly had: young protege/henchman for a coniving Jericho looking to take over the WWE.

    -A returning Shawn Michaels! Even though they'd have to make HBK a heel, which I don't think they could do, let's ignore that and imagine how awesome a Jericho/HBK partnership would be!

  5. Because I want to make the cheap joke, Zack Ryder.

    WOO2J, kids.



    ...Yeah, I'll go now.

  6. I can't pick just one person the possabilities are endless.

    Dolph Ziggler is an obvious choice due to his recent activities.

    Christian makes sense if they feel like making him a heel and to me it's too soon for that.

    I liked the idea that Jericho suggested himself last night and that is Orton teaming with him.

    Recently turned heal and former unified tag champ Carlito would make sense as well.

    The completion of a heel turn for CM Punk by having him join Jericho.

    I'd love to see the Miz as well but I don't think that's gonna happen but I hope he AWESOMELY wins the US Title this Sunday.

    I like legacy the way they are don't really want them to break up but if one of them were to turn and join Jericho whichever one could be replaced by another 2nd gen superstar like Mr Perfect's son. Speaking of Legacy they need to bring in Lacy Von Erich so she can win the Diva's title and bring it to Legacy she could be DiBiase's or Rhode's girlfriend.

    I could go on but like I said it's endless lol

  7. I think it is Carlito as well (as he has shown that the titles are more important than even family, and he does have history against Legacy as well).

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ooh... I just had a thought... since Carlito is competing in the 6 man US Champ. free-for-all, perhaps it will be Primo competing with Jericho... and if they retain, then he has that over Carlito too.

  9. For me, anyone that's not named Dolph Ziggler, Brian Kendrick or William Regal will be something of a let down, just because I love those three.

    The Miz would be pretty cool, because let's face it, he is The Miz and HE IS AWESOME.

    I'd like to see Christian be the second man, but only if he loses the ECW Championship match. I can see it now, Christian loses, gets pissed off, attacks Dreamer and storms off. Later on he returns to win the Tag Championship with Y2J. Only thing is that It wouldn't make sense for Jericho to pick someone that already lost a match tonight.

    ...Well, so long as LEGACY of all people don't win the titles, I'm cool with it. I can't stand Legacy any more. They've help make Randy Orton boring as sin (Because at least he fought some of his own battles before he had them), it's resulted in countless tag and handicap matches that are all the same, and worst of all, it keeps Cody Rhodes on my tv screen.

  10. Honestly, I have no idea who its gonna be. Regal would be cool, Christian, well that would just be awesome.

    Evan Bourne? He seems to have been left off of the NoC card for no real reason. Surely he would have been in the US Title match...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Damn I thought I'd be in a minority guessing at Christian.

    Anyway, for me it seems to make the most sense. Christian has been in the ECW Title since he returned to the WWE. With Dreamer as a face, Kozlov as the heel chasing the belt and Christian having done most of all that he can now without dropping down, it makes a smart move for him.

    Christian is a perfect fit for the guy that is "superior to Edge in every way" as we all know their past, Jericho & Christian have had their time as tag champions too. It makes Christian a heel, something we haven't seen in WWE for nearly 5 years (let's hope it's a more serious heel role like what he did in TNA). When Edge returns as the face he has reason to go after Jericho (giving us the fans what we want from there) and also making the Christian feud we've wanted since he returned.

    As for a Christian-less ECW, he can still appear on the show in the mean time for a few weeks as the transition to building up the new draftee's to title contenders happens if needed. Or as Kozlov gets the immediate title shot/s, Regal, Shelton and perhaps Sheamus can be built up or kept strong as that program works itself out.

    It feels weird talking about him without writing 'Cage' after his name :p

  12. well i think it will be Ortan or Miz.. however it doesn't matter much to me because Rhodes & Dibiase will get the titles, Legacy will brake up... Ortan will lose his title to HHH who will then have a rivalry with Cena because he wants the title! just my opinion think what you want! - Kit

  13. I don't think he'll have a partner at all. He'll prove Legacy right that nobody likes him enough to tag with him. It'll be a bit of a letdown in terms of who it could have been, but character-wise I have a hard time believing any other way.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm going with The Brian Kendrick.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm thinking The Brian Kendrick, Vlad Kozlov or Matt Hardy don't know if he's still hurt or whatever haven't really heard an update on him... Or Jericho competes solo.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm leaning more towards Dolph I feel like he's gonna replace Lance Cade. When he attacked Mysterio he didn't get into the ring on his own he was invited into the ring. Jericho had a smile on his face after Ziggler executed his finisher. I just hate picking him because it's the obvious choice the painfully obvious choice. But he's the only person remotely close to working with him storyline wise. How does he pick The Brian Kendrick? Why would he choose Kendrick? Storyline wise he's the only option. But I hope they go with The Miz, Orton, or Carlito although Primo would be cool too but what good would it do to have Carlito and Primo split up for both of them to be heels. I can't see Jericho picking a face it has to be another heel.

    for some reason, I feel that Jericho is just going to defend the belts by himself. It had been done before with kane and I'm sure that Jericho may do this for now, as no one really fits the bill. The only other logical choice would be matt hardy, who's injured right now, because of the past with edge and what not. Can't wait to find out though! :]

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, there is the impending return of Undertaker too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. While, Dolph Ziggler almost seems like the logical choice. I wouldn't be surprised if WWE tried to pull something crazy out like having DiBiase or Rhodes be his partner.

    I'm not too sure about the Christian or Kendrick ideas, but it could make sense. Though for some reason, I just don't see Jericho picking Kendrick.

    If either the IC title or the ECW title is the opening match, then we might have our answer >_>.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And the IC or ECW Title matches are traditionally show openers. Just sayin.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It is difficult to answer due to so many obvious choices (Ziggler, Miz, etc) are already on the PPV card.

    The Brian Kendrick made it too obvious this monday, so I doubt it will be him.

    This makes me look in the direction of someone I am not sure is even in WWE. There were rumours that he had re-signed, but they could very well be false. That someone is Chris Masters. It would be a good way to debut, being put under the wing of Jericho.

    Shelton Benjamin could easily be in the running, baring the fact he has only recently been drafted.

    ReplyDelete
  22. As a matter of a fact I too had a thought of a debut/return as Jericho's partner, primarily Masters too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. chris jericho will be a partner with chris masters he returned 2 months ago...

    ReplyDelete
  24. i've got my fingers crossed that its christian.

    failing that, dolph ziggler prob.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Iv got a funny feeling that jerichos partner could be the returning chris masters as masters beat edge in 2006 for the ic title so ........... or dibiase jnr could turn on rhodes nd i dno really lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Masters sounds like a good one to me, but honestly, for some reason I think it may be Kane. I don't know why, but it just seems like a good pair. As for Christian, that would be amazing as well. For Rhodes or DiBiase, I don't see it happening. Well, it shouldn't happen. WWE just done that storyline recently.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The whole problem I have with the Rhodes/DiBiase scenario is that it destroys Legacy without Randy Orton's involvement. It's his group, when/if they dissolve, it should be because of someone (probably DiBiase) turning on him, not because Jericho needed someone to replace Edge. That would be completely illogical.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's True But If Orton Ended Up Being The Partner He Would Be The One Ending Legacy Unless He Makes DiBiase Lay Down For Him And Then That Could Lead To DiBiase Turning On Orton Down The Road Because He Was Humiliated At A Main PPV.

  29. Hey whats up? I'm the one promoting you on Twitter. :P

    I think it's going to be TBK

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think it will be either Dolph Ziggler or Christian.... after his ECW title match. Possibly Miz.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tj:Why do people think its chris masters? I think it will be Jack Swagger.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i am posative it will be Ziggler after that incedent... it's logical & Y2Js style... he older & could controle their partnership, which is what he wants & Ziggler could 'prove himself'.. it just works in the long run.. or short run considering Legacy is going to break up despite what you want (Legacy staying together)... there break up would shake WWE & Y2J would have a rivalry considering he wants it to be against Edge, but that can't happen Edge being out for a long a** time... he needs a rivalry for a while they'll always be another but it plays the script well!

  33. I think he will fight them by himself to prove that there is nobody bettr than him but that is unlikley

    ReplyDelete
