• Chris Jericho Says WWE Used His Idea For New WWE Title Feud
Prior to WWE Stomping Grounds 2019 PPV, Chris Jericho said that WWE should be booking Samoa Joe in World Title matches, not Baron Corbin.
Below is what Jericho said on Talk Is Jericho podcast:
“This match, to me, once again is one of the problems with WWE and maybe one of the reasons why tickets haven’t sold well in Tacoma. We just saw this match two weeks ago at Super ShowDown. The classic thing is my neighbour is a good guy too, [that] doesn’t mean [Corbin] should be headlining pay-per-views over and over again.
There’s heat, there’s go-away heat, there’s this guy isn’t ready heat. Corbin — solid worker, solid personality, great guy. I don’t think he’s ready for the main event especially when you got Samoa Joe four or five matches down working for the United States Championship. Flip-flop it. Let Corbin work his way up through the ranks and let a guy who is a legit proven headliner who has drawn money.
I know you’re not suppose to say TNA in WWE but let’s be honest, the biggest pay-per-view in TNA history was Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe. Joe can walk the walk and talk the talk. I think Corbin is still learning.
I think the difference in this one is that there’s a special guest referee that’s going to be chosen by Corbin.”
As seen on last night’s RAW, Samoa Joe started a feud with WWE Champion Kofi Kingston.
