Getting back on track with the history of current competitors scheduled for matches at Wrestlemania 28, we take a look at the challenger for the WWE title, Chris Jericho.
Jericho made his Wrestlemania debut in a unique match. Kurt Angle walked into Wrestlemania 16 as both European and Intercontinental champions. Angle put both titles on the line in a 2 out of 3 falls Triple Threat match against Jericho and Chris Benoit. Benoit won the IC title by pinning Jericho for the first fall. Jericho destroyed Kurt Angle’s Wrestlemania dreams by pinning Benoit to in the second fall and leaving Wrestlemania as European Champion.
Chris Jericho may have won a title at Wrestlemania 16 but at Wrestlemania 17 he walked in as a champion. William Regal tried to relieve Y2J of the Intercontinental title but fell victim to a Lionsault.
When Wrestlemania 19 rolled around, Chris Jericho got to make people forget about the previous year by having a contender for match of the night against one of his heroes Shawn Michaels. This was Shawn’s first Wrestlemania match since loosing the WWF title to Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 14. The two had a stellar match but the student was no match for the master. Shawn Michaels won the match yet he was the one left on the mat after a post-match low blow from Jericho.
The love triangle at Wrestlemania 18 may not have worked for a World Title match, at Wrestlemania 20, Chris Jericho and Christian decided to show how a love triangle can be exciting and the ensuing match could be entertaining and tell a good story. The lead up to the match saw Jericho and Christian make a bet as to who could bed divas Trish Stratus and Lita first. The story saw Jericho actually develop feelings for Trish then Christian tried to steal Trish from Jericho. Christian picked up the victory with a quick roll up and post match events saw Trish turn on Jericho and walk out with Christian.
Chris Jericho made his Wrestlemania return at Wrestlemania 24 where he left off, in the Money in the Bank match. Much like the match at Wrestlemania 21, lots of high spots and someone other than Chris Jericho won.

Chris Jericho’s last Wrestlemania match saw him leave as champion. Will his first Wrestlemania match in two years see the same outcome? We will know in less than three weeks. Not only will we know who will be champion, we’ll also know who is the “best in the world.”
