As good as the Jericho/Neville match was, this one has the potential to exceed it big-time. Owens is one of the most special live event/improvisational performers ever. If the Jericho that showed up at Beast in the East comes to Madison Square Garden, then that match will steal the show. If the Jericho that inhabited late '90s WCW shows up, then that match has the potential to be an all-timer if just for the in-ring banter and the competing egos.“@scsa852k: Mark your calendars!

Of course, the other thing that hasn't changed from Beast in the East is Lesnar's purpose. He'll be there to wrestle, but his opponent will be Bo Dallas, whom he squishified on the RAW after SummerSlam. Hopefully, Dallas will deliver a special motivational speech to the NYC crowd before he gets turned into a fine paste.
ETA: News items for the MSG show now say Lesnar is wrestling Big Show at the event. Honestly, I'd rather see him mash Dallas than take on Show again. Jesus.
