“The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories & Rare Matches from Y2J”
That’s officially the next WWE DVD/Blu-ray releasing to stores, on the way in 2 week’s time to the United States and following to UK/Europe and Australia just shortly after.
Can’t wait ’til then? Here’s an exclusive first look with screenshots and new details!
As you’ve no doubt heard (or watched in the intro), Chris Jericho is interviewed in a limo for this one. There are 26 of these newly filmed segments on the DVD/Blu-ray – one with discussion for each match featured, and a few more to introduce and close out the set.
We learn a few things about the chosen match list in those interviews as the man himself reveals that the 2013 match with Rob Van Dam didn’t originally make the cut but that Jericho requested it. It also sounds like he personally wanted the Triple Threat Tag Match from Madison Square Garden which is on there too. Also, despite not actually remembering competing in it, he made sure the 2001 title match with Austin was included because of the star power involved (that one also featured Mick Foley as a special outside referee).
Back to RVD/Y2J, this match on the DVD actually includes off-air footage from the WWE App!

They didn’t originally include Chris Jericho vs. Rob Van Dam? After also not including it on last year’s Best of Raw and SmackDown 2013 set? Why does the WWE hate that match so much?
I don’t know it was a good match.
Just watched it again earlier and it definitely is! Not quite sure it’s to be raved about quite as much as Jericho does (on this DVD and elsewhere) but still a great one in recent years.
During one of Jericho’s podcasts (I think with RVD as his guest last March), he mentioned that the fans loved the match but that ‘they’ (i.e. management) didn’t really like it. Which explains why they haven’t featured it on any sets.
I remember watching it on the night, with mixed emotions. I like both guys, and was a huge fan in 2001 when they were wrestling regularly, so it was a great slice of nostalgia. But the actual in-ring action seemed well off the pace and borderline sloppy at times. Still, the crowd was into it, both guys were over and the pyschology worked, and it was ultimately a good match. I’m glad Jericho managed to get it included on this set.
