One former WWE Champion has revealed his favorite match of his career.
That former champion is Chris Jericho. The former WWE Champion has been under contract with the sports entertainment company off and on since 1999.
Jericho is a six-time world champion, having won the WWF Championship once, the WCW/World Championship twice, and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship three times.
He is also a record nine-time Intercontinental Champion. Jericho is the first Undisputed WWF Champion, and thus the final holder of the World Championship (formerly the WCW World Heavyweight Championship), having won and unified the WWF and World titles by defeating Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock on the same night in 2001.
He is also the ninth Triple Crown Champion, as well as the fourth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
Jericho recently took to his official Instagram account and revealed his favorite match from his legendary career. As seen below, Jericho noted that the match was against WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels at the 2008 WWE No Mercy PPV (pay-per-view) event. He wrote the following:
“When people ask me what my favorite match is, I always say the ladder match vs. @officialshawnmichaels from No Mercy on Oct 5, 2008!. The match, the story, the build up, the finish...it was the culmination of one of the best told stories & angles in @wwe history! Thanks, Shawn!”
This was a great feud, to say the least. In April of 2008, Jericho became involved in the ongoing feud between Michaels and Batista when he suggested that Michaels enjoyed retiring Ric Flair at WrestleMania 24 earlier that year.
This caused Michaels to attack him. Jericho thus asked to be inserted into Batista's and Michaels' match at Backlash. However, he was appointed as the special guest referee.During the match at Backlash, Michaels faked a knee injury so that Jericho would give him time to recover and lured Batista in for Sweet Chin Music for the win.
They had some great matches after that including the one at No Mercy. Jericho has gone on record in the past during interviews by stating this was one of his favorite feuds of his professional wrestling career.
