Chris Jericho had a storied career, traveling all over the United States and overseas.
Over his stints in major organizations such as WCW, ECW and of course WWE, Jericho was able to narrow his favorite match of his 27-year career into one bout with Shawn Michaels at No Mercy in 2008.
“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!”
Here’s the full match in all its glory.
This match was wild, including crazy bumps, wild spots and its fair share of technical wrestling. It had everything you’d look for in a title bout including two unreal spots — a back bodydrop through the announcer’s table and an insane forward ladder tilt over the top rope where Jericho’s knee buckled when he hit the ground.
Jericho won the World Heavyweight title five times, the WWE Championship once and every other title possible during his various WWE runs.
And every time he comes back after short breaks, he somehow only gets better.
