Chris Jericho Reveals It Was Drunkicho That Tweeted About Triple H’s Promo

Chris Jericho told Doug Mortman and Dave Lagreca on their Busted Open radio show that he had been drinking Grey Goose vodka when he responded via Twitter to Triple H name-dropping him in his promo on Monday Night Raw a couple weeks ago.

Jericho said the promo was just Triple H being Triple H. Jericho said that and Hunter were similar throughout their careers as they were always working with “the guy,” and never were “the guy.” Jericho said that title can only go to The Rock, Steve Austin and John Cena over the last 10 years.

So there you have it, it was Drunkicho that responded via Twitter.

    Its nice to see him step up and admit it instead of saying he was hacked

  • thepowerserge

    The crazy thing about promo work is that there’s usually a grain of truth to them. More often than not, the worker who’s talking tends to have the character show off his or her true feelings. Guess Triple H’s ego really IS that big. Having watched wrestling since the Hogan years in the 80′s, I’d have to say Triple H was NEVER “the man” as he’s so inclined to say. He was usually a distant third to Stone Cold and The Rock in the 90′s, Angle & Lesnar in the early 2000′s, and finally to Cena & Batista in the latter part of the decade.

    • jdl

      He wasn’t even in third to Stone Cold and the Rock, he was about fifth or sixth. It only seems like he was higher because he was sticking it to the bosses’ daughter and as a result got more company attention.

      • Xavier

        Fifth or Sixth? Who else was ahead of Triple H during the attitude era? Oh and Triple H was already the top heel in the company before he started dating Steph.

        • Win

          HBK or Taker ring a bell?! Heck, even Mick Foley had more memorable moments.

          • Xavier

            HBK missed pretty much the missed the entire attitude era. And you can make a case for Taker I’ll give you that but I’d still say Triple H was booked just as strong as Taker during that era and by late 99 was booked higher up the card then Taker on most occasions. Foley? Really dude? Foley was never higher up the card then Triple H during the attitude era

          • Bob’s Diner

            Ha – Foley is the one who did nothing but try to get HHH over as a credible main event heel. Foley was more important all through 1998 and 1999. He was having PPV title matches with Austin, The Rock and Undertaker while HHH was busy having European Championship matches against Goldust

          • Xavier

            Triple H was a much bigger deal then Foley thru out the Attitude Era. By the summer of 99 Triple H had surpassed Foley.

        • BIG M

          Fairly sure VKM was the top heel in the company through the whole attitude era.

          • Xavier

            Not in 2000-2001 though. I’d have to give it too Triple H. But I was actually referring to active wrestlers during that era. Triple H was that guy

          • Bob’s Diner

            Nope, Vince was still the top heel in 2000-01. WrestleMania 2000 sure wasn’t about HHH – it was all about the McMahons. And ’01 it was Austin and Vince. Not even getting people to run over Steve Austin got him HHH to the top. He had to wait for those guys to leave and have HBK come back and put him over

          • Xavier

            Austin’s heel turn flopped big time in 01. So much that they had to turn him back face six months later. Sure, it was a great swerve but in hinge sight it had a negative effect on the WWE. Austin going heel was around the time when ratings started too slowly dip and was also the end of the Attitude Era. And Triple H was the top heel in 1999-2000. And he’s always been higher up the food chain then Jericho. Nothing you can say will change that. And I can recall Jericho throughout most of the attitude era most of the attitude era going around calling Stephanie a bottom feeding bit** or something along those lines. So why he would get all butt hurt about a promo where he was vaguely mentioned is beyond me, sounds like Jericho is a bit sensitive to me

          • Bob’s Diner

            HHH was a MID-CARD heel throughout 1999 until August/September, which kinda lasted until mid-2000. And I do say ‘kinda’ because he was back down to mid-card status once better talent came along. Hardly makes him a top level player in the Attitude Era like you claim

          • Xavier

            Lol that’s laughable. Once Triple H became a top guy in mid 99 he never went back to being a midcarder. After mid 2000 Triple H headlined Summerslam 2000 along with The Rock & Kurt Angle for the WWE title, then beat Angle at UnForgiven the next month in a high profile feud involving Stephanie. Then at No Mercy he beat Benoit, who was getting pushed heavily as a top heel during that time (he was involved in the fatal 4 way match at Unforgiven the month prior), then after that he resumed his feud with Austin and was revealed as the guy who paid Rikishi to run down Austin. Then at Armageddon he was involved in the 6 pack HIAC match for the title. Moving on to the next year he was feuding with Angle again this time for the title. The following month he went over Austin in a 3 stages from hell match at NWO then went on to feud & fight the Undertaker at Mania. So again, please explain how that makes Triple H a midcarder when pretty much everything he’s done since mid 99 has him fighting for the title, being featured in the main feud or being the top guy in the most over heel stable.

          • Bob’s Diner

            So let’s get this straight… he went back to beating mid-carders on their way up so he could feel important, had a whopping ONE main event between SummerSlam and Backlash the following year (which involved 5 other guys who were mostly more important and more over then he was) and that constitutes being the “top heel” to you?

            Please, continue – regale me with more tales from the great history of the mighty HHH

          • Xavier

            So Austin, Taker, Angle & Rock are mid carders now in your opinion. Really dude, your reaching bro. And only Austin & Rock were more over & important then Triple H during those times. BTW, what was Jericho doing during that time besides spilling coffee on Kane?

    • Xavier

      The Rock was the never the guy either. Austin was the guy thru out the whole attitude are (1997-2001). Rock & Triple H held the fort down for a little while when Austin was out in 2000 and Triple H again held the fort down on RAW from 2002-2003 when Austin walked out of the company and Rock left for Hollywood. Their are only five guys to ever work in the WWE that can truly say they were the guy. Bruno, Backlund, Hogan, Austin & Cena. Guys like Andre The Giant, Savage, Warrior, Rock, Triple H, Hart, HBK & Taker were huge names but only filled in the gaps between “the guys”.

      • Win

        The Rock filled in a gap…LOL! You musy’ve missed the last 2 Wrestlemanias.

        • Xavier

          Rock was a part-timer, not even really a part-timer really. Cena has been the guy since 2005.

  • Xavier

    Jericho is delusional. Their careers weren’t similar at all. Triple H is, was and will always be a bigger name then Jericho. He was always higher up the card then Jericho.

    • BIG M

      Y2J is a legend though and has had some real classic matches with several people.
      Surely that counts for something in card standings.

      • Xavier

        It counts for a lot actually, you’ll get no argument from me there. But I think it’s pretty obvious that Triple H was pretty much always higher up the card. From about mid 1999 up until mid 2006 Triple H was the top heel in the company. DX, The McMahon-Helmsey & Evolution all have Triple H’s name attached too it. That’s big time right there.

        • BIG M

          Yeah but the argument allways been did HHH deserve it all.
          Like it or not the day he hooked up with Steph he left it all up for debate.
          Personally I think he’s earnd his current standing but at the same time I also think he didn’t hear the word NO a lot from VKM.
          When even guys Like Cena probably don’t get everything they want do they.

          • Xavier

            True. It’s a bit of both. I think regardless of him dating Steph he was on his way to greatness. However, I don’t think he’d be the COO if it weren’t for his marriage to Steph. I’ve always wondered what would happen to Triple H if for some reason they divorced. Now that would be interesting.

          • BIG M

            Shane O Mac Will thank Jesus, Alah and Budda and then pray to all three again for HHH’s job LOL.

          • Xavier

            LMAO

          • Janus

            Considering Triple H isn’t really the COO, that makes a lot of sense.

          • BIG M

            To be fair to Xavier HHH’s official title is very long and boring its just easier to say COO.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Always? I seem to remember them main eventing a WrestleMania together…
      HHH is someone like Cena; for the amount he has been shoved down people’s throats he should be WAY more of a draw than he ever actually has been.

      • Xavier

        Lol, youre like the stereotypical internet wrestling fan. Let me guess you didn’t like Sheamus as a face? You think Orton is too robotic on the mic? Think that Triple H is only great because he banged Steph? You think that John Cena can’t wrestle and think that Vince buries people that aren’t muscular and think that he buries talent that he gets from outside promotions?

        • Bob’s Diner

          Wow that was an intelligent response – very worthwhile.
          Mad I insulted the H?
          I’ll answer your questions for fun then…
          I never liked Sheamus as a heel or face. I like him off my TV at the moment
          Orton is too robotic at everything. And overrated (except at boringness). And proof that holding lots of titles in your career does not make you the best. See HHH and John Cena for more proof of that…
          HHH is not great. His ego certainly is. His advancement to the main event timed perfectly with him dropping the WWE title to Vince and then getting involved with Stephanie, which you can claim happened after he was in the main event but no one will ever know the truth – Chyna claims she busted him for cheating on her with Stephanie, so who knows how long that was going on when he was found out?
          John Cena can wrestle. His match with Daniel Bryan proves that to anyone that says otherwise.
          I don’t think Vince cares enough about anyone to ‘bury’ them because they don’t have muscles. HBK was certainly never a bodybuilder and just look at the push he got from about 1995 onwards.

          Try again

          • Xavier

            Lol nope I’m not mad at all. I enjoy your generic IWC responses. You’ve been pretty busy today trying to convince people & yourself that Cena isn’t much of a draw. But as long as you believe what your saying I guess it’s not really a lie.So I’ll let you continue that one man crusade. I don’t wanna slow you up. Stay blessed bro.
