Jericho is suppose to take time off in August & September to tour with Fozzy and then come back at some point in October. With Dancing With The Stars being an All-Star cast in the Fall, I want to see Jericho come back with Maria Menounos on one arm and Stacy Keibler on the other to form a DWTS Stable. I'd mark the hell out if he started doing moves in the ring that incorporated a Foxtrot or a Jive, hell I'll even take a Paso Doble.
In storyline, I think Jericho has only been connected to two woman...Steph & Trish. I think it's finally time for his character to have some female persuasion. Come on, he is the "best in the world at what he does."
PERFECT SOLUTION! Give Jericho a valet that'll be his Perfect 10! Give her a gimmick just like Tully gave Baby Doll!
Three perfect ladies for this; Kaitlyn, Tamina, and Kelly Kelly
Kaitlyn would fit in perfectly as a muscular hottie who could easily interfere in matches and make the damage look believeable. Since Kaitlyn has never been on WWE's main shows due to her lack of training, or storylines. This would be perfect for her. Somebody who the fans know, but is off the radar.
Then you could have Tamina turn heel. Her father started as a heel, why not Tamina? She's got an exotic look. And she could have a Dick Slater/Dark Journey type of relationship with Jericho. She's been off the radar as well since her "face push" for that one PPV against Beth. And when she's still on everyones minds for that, she could come back as Jericho's valet in a shocking heel turn.
And speaking of shocking heel turns, TURN KELLY KELLY HEEL. This would be the ultimate shocker. A person who has been known primarily as a face, suddenly becomes a primping, prima donna like blonde who thinks she's absolutely perfect. Just the thought of her acting as a heel after so many years as a face just sounds absolutely evil. I bet that she could do it.
watched the HBK movie. It was good but not as good as the stone cold one. Probably watch Orton one next since I don't know much about him behind the scenes and that's the stuff i find most interesting.

I've been watching lots of Nitro episodes these past couple days and here are a few random thoughts.
** When Dr Harvey Schiller comes out, dressed in a suit and speaking like a normal person, not cutting a "wrestling promo", and watching the way Bischoff responds to his edict (that Eric is suspended) it really makes me wish there were less examples of the "authority figure" character as a storyline device in modern wrestling, and that if they were used then they were used more in this kind of manner. Bloke in power comes out and says what's what, other characters react but ultimately what he says goes, that's the end of it.
**Bischoff joining the nWo and later "Mr McMahon" during the Austin/Rock vs. Corporation runs were great, partially because it was ground-breaking to have the boss as a heel putting up roadblocks/stripping babyfaces of their titles - it was fresh and interesting and unpredictable - and secondly because as "Mr McMahon" Vince was able to use previously unseen ability as a performer, and tap in to an audience of millions living vicariously through Austin, who deep down wanted to rebel against whatever system they were part of and/or beat up their boss. Since though, everything else has been a stale re-run and things have been saturated with constant reworkings of the same storylines with owners, presidents, commissioners, general managers, Directors of Authority, COOs, executive vice presidents and so on, to diminishing returns. I genuinely pine for the days when the "board of directors" or "championship committee" or whoever was making the matches in kayfabe operated behind the scenes annonymously. No, the Raw laptop doesn't count.
** I like Syxx's black tights with the lightening on, because I like the consistency of the lightening motif staying part of his look through the 1-2-3 Kid run and on into his stint in WCW, just as it of course was when he was the Lightening Kid in Global. Looking back, I hated Syxx passionately at the time but he was (and still is) a world class performer who was skilled at making me hate him, and I can watch all the older matches of his with such appreciation now.
** As noted time and time again, I really miss JTTS matches. Matching Mark Starr or Jim Powers against a genuinely over guy who dained to let them look competitive for about five minutes before unleashing a couple of moves and then their finish for a big pop. You knew the JTTS was reasonably skilled, but you didnt have to pretend they had a dog's chance of winning. I think you need more "lower card" talents nowadays than they have, everyone seems to be midcard or just some nobody they draft in to feed to Ryback. The guys they have treading water on Superstars might be better used being on the TV shows helping provide these showcase matches for the actual midcarders. I'm starting to think a Jack Swagger for instance might be more over if he regular outings to go over the Tyson Kidds and Trent Barettas of the world, the modern day Mark Starr or Sparky Plugg if you like. And I'd really like Kofi to be relegated to JTTS. I hate Kofi.
** Hogan is right-handed and always throws his punches right-handed, yet he throws his knifedge chops with the left. How strange.

The following is from WWE.com:
"Chris Jericho has been suspended indefinitely due to an irresponsible act of denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in São Paulo on May 24. WWE has apologized to the citizens and the government of Brazil for this incident."
According to fan reports, Jericho was in a match with CM Punk. Jericho took a Brazilian flag Punk was holding, threw it to the ground, and stomped on it. According to F4WOnline.com, the story is that he was almost arrested and ended up being rushed to the airport to get out of the country into Ecuador.
