In the world of professional wrestling, the superstar known as Chris Jericho is one of the best to ever do it. Jericho, who currently holds the WWE's United States Championship belt, is a six-time world champion, a record nine-time Intercontinental Champion, and the first person to be crowned the Undisputed WWF Champion. At 32 championships total, dude's an international icon.
During his current run in the WWE, he's been an antagonizing figure, railing against the establishment for a number of perceived grievances. So many grievances, in fact, that he's kept track of them, literally bringing out The List weekly on Raw since September 2016.
While Jericho is technically a heel, the gimmick has become wildly popular, with fans itching to hear him add another name to The List (which has been forever immortalized in a t-shirt). A number of WWE superstars and entire sections of the WWE Universe have been added to the list—which Jericho shared back in October—but one of the biggest names to be added to it is Tom Brady, the Super Bowl-slaying quarterback who now has a Super Bowl ring for all of the fingers on his right hand.
Many have taken to calling Brady the "G.O.A.T." (aka "Greatest of All Time") since the Patriots defeated the Falcons in Super LI this past Sunday night in Houston, including LeBron James. But Jericho, who's called himself the G.O.A.T. on a number of occasions (for a number of reasons) wasn't feeling that talk, and on this week's Monday Night Raw, he took some time to address it.
"I've got a bone to pick with somebody else who everybody is calling the greatest of all time," Jericho said. "Somebody who won a little game...by the hair of his chinny chin chin." (Dark!) "Do you know what happens when you steal Chris Jericho's nickname?" he asked. "Do you know what happens when you call yourself the greatest of all time and you're not me?"
"Tom Brady," Jericho continued, "you just made the list!" It was a great moment, although, if we're being honest, Muhammad Ali had been calling himself the greatest of all time for years, and LL Cool J turned the term into a song back in 2000.
Either way, moments like this are why professional wrestling is the G.O.A.T.
