Jim Ross Looks Back On Chris Jericho’s WWE Debut

Chris Jericho has one of the greatest WWE debuts of all-time.

Few people argue that.

What did Jim Ross think of it? During a recent installment of his “Grilling JR” podcast, he shared his thoughts on exactly that.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he recalls the famous WWE debut of Y2J.

“I thought that was a nice surprise, and with Rock in the ring cutting one his promos – they’re always great and entertaining. I think the countdown clock was a brilliant idea. He interrupted The Rock. If that don’t put you on the radar and front of mind awareness of the fans, nothing is going to. So, I thought that was a great kickoff for him, and it was his idea. So, all of a sudden, he sees that [his] creative ideas are significant, and they’re being respected. Somebody is listening. That’s really what all the talent want. They want to have the input on their own creative, and why would you blame them? It was a great night there in Chicago. We weren’t sure how the crowd was gonna react, but buddy, they reacted big time. They were ready for Chris Jericho.”
