Top 5: Chris Jericho WWE Feuds

By @TrueGodImmortal

Chris Jericho is having one of his best runs right now in the WWE. With his heel persona completely working and his newest catchphrase of "Stupid Idiot" gaining traction, we wanted to look back at his storied career in WWE and list his best feuds in his long 17 year tenure (off and on) with the company. Let's get into it.

5. Chris Jericho vs Triple H

-I struggled between this one and his rivalry with Christian. Jericho and Christian were a tag team and friends who eventually started to be torn apart by Trish Stratus in storyline form, but Jericho and Triple H had a true to life rivalry that seemingly spilled over into their feud and spawned some great matches over the years. While their Wrestlemania 18 match disappointed in a number of ways, their matches at Fully Loaded 2000, Judgment 2002 in Hell In A Cell, and their April 2000 RAW match. Jericho and Triple H have been amazing rivals through the years and their feuds have always been entertaining and top notch for the most part.

4. Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit 

-These two had an amazing chemistry over the years and in WWE, that chemistry spawned a great set matches during 2000 and 2001. The intensity between the two men and their real friendship allowed them to work together to create a timeless rivalry in WWE. I think it's also interesting that it would be revisited here and there in spurts in later years through one off RAW matches and their chemistry remained in tact. When thinking of some of Jericho's best opponents, you'd have to give a nod to none other than Benoit regardless.

3. Chris Jericho vs Rey Mysterio 

-This feud is so slept on. Jericho was in his prime as a heel. He was essentially a bully and he would take Mysterio to task over the Intercontinental Title and over his mask. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two go at it and they put on a classic match at The Bash 2009, along with a number of other great matches in this feud as well. It lasted some months and seemed to allow Mysterio and Jericho to create the best Smackdown feud of 2009 that wasn't CM Punk and Jeff Hardy.  

2. Chris Jericho vs The Rock

-Jericho is gold whenever he works with the Rock and this was his most prized feud in the first few years of his WWE career. He and Rock put on classic matches, classic promos, and they just had the absolute best chemistry with each other in all aspects of the game. Rock and Jericho had their best moments leading up to No Mercy 2001, but there's no denying the impact that the debut promo from Jericho with the Rock had as well in 1999. One of the best adversaries for Jericho not only in WWE, but his whole career.

1. Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels

-Every time these two feuded, it was special. Both men would put their best out and leave it all in the ring, starting from their Wrestlemania 19 feud all the way down to their epic 2008 feud that spawned about 5 months. Jericho worked perfectly as a heel and HBK worked well to gain much sympathy as a  babyface during this time also, and this is hands down his best WWE feud and maybe outside of his Malenko feud in WCW, this is his best feud ever. Each match told its own story, everything seemingly flowed together well and their feud felt real. It felt like real hatred between the two and that's essentially what you need in a great feud. HBK and Jericho gave us a feud for the ages.

Think there should be any other Jericho feuds here or in place of these? Post your choices below in the comments.
