    Chris Jericho: Future Commentator

    On Tuesday Night, Jericho join Cole and Matthews on commentary, and i have to tell you, he was amazing. i was so into the match because he was calling alot of the action. and it got me thinking, he needs to join the broadcasting team in 5, 10 years when he is ready to step away from the ring.

    I mean, he was like Matt Striker status calling, and Striker is one of the best in today's day. Did anyone else get the same feel from Tuesday Night NXT?

    I'm gonna agree & disagree with you here. I agree in that I would like to see/hear Jericho on commentary when he stops working actively as a wrestler. However I disagree with you on your comment about Striker.

    Can't see Jericho on the sidelines. And I don't wanna see him on the sidelines like that. Sure, every time he's on commentary he's just plain epic. But weekly? Nah, it'd get old real quick and his antics would lose their luster if we heard his big mouth on our TV's every week.

    Well, i doubt that he would keep his gimmick of the heel guy like he is now.

    Face Jericho as color commentator? We've seen how diluted King is now that he isn't a heel commentator. Having Jericho on commentary would be bad imo, but having him suck up to every face and call foul to every heel who cheats would be horrible to listen to. And Jericho has stated time and time again that he does not want to go back to being face in WWE.

    Re: Chris Jericho: Future Commentator

    Striker recently has been really inconsistent. He states a lot of facts & numbers each week that aren't always right. His personality & character just bugs me as well. Some of the stupid lame brain comments he makes usually have me sighing, groaning, or rolling my eyes. Aside from JBL, I really liked Paul Heyman as an announcer.

    But where is Heyman now? Writing for the Sun? What a lame way to leave the business.

    Yeah, I wish he'd return to wrestling in some way shape or form as an on screen character. Also, I like Josh Matthews for some reason. He doesn't annoy me, he doesn't really pick favorites, and he's remotely smart.

    Apparently you dont pay attention to NXT, he is absolutely in love with Daniel Bryan.

    That made me laugh. Not sure about how respected the Sun is in America, but to have a steady job in journalism is win in my book.

    Also, yes. If Jericho ever decided to step away from the ring and wanted to stay involved in the business, commentary would be lucky to have him.

    His love for Bryan is just counteracting the hate Cole gives him.

    I think Jericho would be great as a commentator, but I personally think that when Jericho does retire from in ring competition, he will more than likely leave the business for other opportunities.
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    Other then making the mistake of saying he voted for Barrett he was extremely entertaining, the banter between him and Matthews was also very enjoyable.

    Re: Chris Jericho: Future Commentator

    I liked what he said to Matthews on the second week of NXT.

    Matthews - "We still don't know the extent of Daniel Bryan's injured ribs"

    Jericho - "I think we do know the extent you idiot! He just lost the match because of it."

    I couldn't stop laughing when I heard that, simply brilliant.

    You can tell he has fun messing with Cole and Matthews on NXT, I don't think he'll do commentary full time after he's done with wrestling but who knows? Time will tell
