Jericho’s Debut Promo in 1999 is Scarily Accurate

PPV buy rates, plummeting. Mainstream acceptance: non existent. And reactions from the live crowds, complete and utter silence. And I know why you’re silent. You’re silent because you’re embarrassed to be here. And I’m embarrassed for you. And the reason why you’re embarrassed is because of the steady stream of uninteresting, untalented, mediocre ‘Sports Entertainers’ that you’re forced to cheer for and care for. No wonder you’re not cheering. You could care less about every single idiot in that dressing room."

Jericho is himself not one to talk about being stale and repetitive these days, but yes, he was 100% accurate, unfortunately.
