- As seen on RAW last night, WWE plugged a website article that asks if Chris Jericho is the new Cerebral Assassin of WWE, a nickname claimed by Triple H.
The article mentions Triple H and wonders if Jericho may take the title of WWE’s new Cerebral Assassin after the Extreme Rules WWE Title Match against CM Punk on Sunday:
“Jericho has proven he will stop at nothing in his attempt to wear Punk down to the point of mental and emotional exhaustion, and that spells big trouble as the two rivals head into a grueling Chicago Street Fight where every last bit of energy counts. On April 29, Jericho’s heinous game plan could either fuel Punk’s drive to demolish his antagonist once and for all. Or, it just might be remembered as the master stroke of the new “Cerebral Assassin.””
As soon as WWE plugged the article on RAW last night, speculation began, mainly on Twitter, that Jericho was being set up for a feud against Triple H. For what it’s worth, there has been no talk of bringing Triple H back yet.
