Chris Jericho Comments on CM Punk

Chris Jericho had this to say on Twitter last night.
Everyone is so excited that mentioned me on Raw. Newsflash...I don't give a shit. Mind ur own business and stop rippin me off Punk.
I don't know what his angle for lack of better term is, but this struck me as odd.

This seems like as good a time as any to say, "I think Chris Jericho is really overrated."  Let me rephrase, "Chris Jericho is a guy that people really seem to like that doesn't do nearly as much for me."

Listen he's phenomenal as a serious suit-wearing heel, but his work as a face is not all that impressive to me.  His humor is too corny for my tastes.  Naming his 1,004 moves?  Awesome, but by and large he is an unfunny guy who thinks he is funny and it pains me.

Someone the other day defended putting Punk back on TV so soon because Jericho's big return was botched because they made the fans wait.  I saw it differently.  Corners of the IWC were really excited about Jericho's return, but most of the casuals just did not seem to care or at least cared a lot less.  I remember being underwhelmed by his face run and it wasn't until he turned serious heel that he really got over after the big return.
Sorry for the non sequitur, but it felt like a good time to say it.  In fairness to Jericho and so TH's head won't asplode I give you the epic Nitro moment of Chris listing his moves after the jump.
