I've always thought Jericho was below average anyway even during his prime for someone of his ilk. He doesn't have the body control to make his moves as athletic or believable as others. A two or three step slower Jericho forced AJ to really adjust his timing which made for some disjointed matches. He makes up for it though in the storytelling/psychology aspect. A match with Owens given the storyline should be a 10 minute brawl and that's it.
