Even though Y2J's Twitter heel game is a relatively new thing, and he keeps it pretty simple compared to how crafty KO can be, another reason why JerichKO needs to be a thing is so Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens can team-up to dismantle haters online.
There's just something wonderful about how simple Jericho's responses are. They'd be a lovely complement to Owens' wordplay and the way he uses people's own timelines against them.
Anyway, I'm never giving up on JerichKO, but at least we can enjoy the Ayatollah's solo campaign against Shinsuke Nakamura (which may or may not be leading to a match in Japan or introductory feud on the main roster for Swagsuke), which has now drawn in the whole of NXT:

NXT? Sorry, I work in the big leagues only. https://t.co/A1TnYoyPAU— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) April 28, 2016
Hidden excellence in this one is he did work NXT for a quick feud with Bray Wyatt back in 2013.
Even grandmothers who recognize Jericho's villainy aren't safe, as this little kid from Syracuse found out:
@IAmJericho my nana is one of your biggest fans. She says she can't wait to boo you though the next time in cuse pic.twitter.com/lmtLm3U4gA— tim sliwka (@timsliwka) April 28, 2016
Boo me? Your grandma is a dumb idiot. https://t.co/zVrPEswm16— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) April 28, 2016
And don't try sticking up for her grandson either:
@IAmJericho @timsliwka boys only about 7/8 and your saying that? Heel or not what kind of role model are you setting there poor show jericho— George Drummond (@GeorgeDrummond3) April 28, 2016

Spelling doesn't really seem to be George's issue - more grammer with use of possessives and contractions, but that's probably why he only got the "dumbass" and not a full "stupid idiot".
Now let's book this Nakamura match for July, and find a feud for JerichKO to tide us over in the interim!
