Slobberknocker: The Torch Is Passed

Posted: December 11, 2011 by Keith Stone in Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, videos, wrestling, WWF

As part of a ceremony anointing himself as the future of the WWF, Randy Orton wanted the torch to be literally passed to him, so he went ahead and did the logical thing: he hired a runner to carry a torch from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale. The poor lad made the nearly 30-mile run only to be clotheslined in the final stretch by Chris Jericho, who was making his “second coming.” Jericho went on to confront Orton and cut one of his trademark promos to kick off a excellent final three-year run in wrestling. Although he dropped his sparkly-shirt wearing rocker gimmick for a more serious, suit-wearing character, Jericho’s stole the torch from Orton in more ways than one that night.
