Throughout the mid 90s, Shawn Michaels was considered as the greatest sports entertainer in the world. While many will say Shawn rose to the top thanks to his backstage stroke and his relationship with the office, The Heartbreak Kid backed everything up with his performances in the ring.
When Shawn took time away from the ring after WrestleMania XIV, other superstars in wrestling began climbing the ladder. A superstar who moved from WCW to the WWF was one Chris Jericho, an incredibly talented superstar who had worked around the world to become an exciting and entertaining wrestler in his own right. When HBK returned to the WWE in 2002 and after Shawn worked his return angle with Triple H, the decision was made to start a Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels storyline that would result in a WrestleMania match in 2003. HBK vs Y2J at Mania would end up becoming one of the greatest matches to ever happen at WrestleMania.
This video takes a look at how the Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho rivalry began. Topics covered include:
00:00 - The Raw after WWE Armageddon 2002
03:24 - HBK and Y2J at the 2003 Royal Rumble
07:01 - Jericho challenges Michaels to a WrestleMania match
11:55 - The final promo before Mania
14:22 - Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho at WrestleMania XIX

    This really was a superb angle. The way they played up how Jericho idolised Shawn and wanted to be like him. Shawn wanting to prove himself after coming back and tearing the house down with someone he knew he could do that with. A coherent storyline that made sense. Bit different these days....

    I really enjoy these videos from Wrestling Bios so first of all thank you for all of your hard work, I'm always like "yes" when I see a new video show up on my youtube "suggestions" page, or at least a video I haven't seen before. Any way I just wanted to address the dislikes for this video, it's like WHY ............I wish all 21 people who disliked this video would tell us what's your reasoning? Why did you dislike this video? and could you have done better? I feel people hate just for the sake of hating.......

    Jericho went from having Wrestlemania matches in his prime with the likes of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, Edge and AJ Styles with millions watching to being bloated and wrestling Orange Cassidy in front of 700K weekly viewers. Sad.

    It's very impressive how you keep cranking these gems out! Jericho becoming the Undisputed Champion is still one of the greatest booking swerves of all time. What you said about him staying hungry even after winning it all rings true. Not being complacent at the top. That's a champion. Bret, HHH & Savage ( R.I.P. ) all had this in different ways. The Michaels/Jericho WXIX match felt average but the feud leading up to it was awesome. Jericho is good, & it's debatable putting him in the same league as Shawn. Eddie Guerrero, Dynamite Kid ( both R.I.P. ) & TNA A.J.Styles are moreso undisputed in that class
