he's not scared
- "The Flairs, the Hogans, the Pipers, the

our game. I don't have time to worry about the
young guys, I'm too worried about beating
- Mene Gene questions Jericho putting himself in
the group with Hogan and Flair
- You know, maybe if he could say that
without being questioned, he wouldn't be
- Chris "I do think Hogan and Flair and Piper
deserve to be in a class with me. They've paid
- Chris labels himself as a humble person about ten

- Rick Steiner vs Buff Bagwell on Nitro
- According to a recent WCW Live interview, Sting
was supposed to come down from the ceiling that

showing him...they wanted to do something where
he'd come out of nowhere...
