Fans took particular delight in his promos toward Stephanie, as he showered her with insults, calling her a "filthy, dirty, disgusting, brutal, bottom-feeding, trash-bag ho" and throwing a pie in her face.

In the following months, Jericho became a major force in the "Invasion" storyline in which WCW and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) joined forces to overtake the WWF. Jericho remained on the side of the WWF and retained his status as a face. However, signs of a heel turn slowly became obvious as Jericho began to show jealousy toward fellow WWF member, The Rock. The Rock kept reminding Jericho that he had never won "the big one" (a world championship), and wrote Jericho off as a "comedy act." Jericho faced The Rock in a match at No Mercy for the WCW Championship after Jericho defeated Rob Van Dam in a #1 contenders match. Jericho finally won "the big one", pinning The Rock after debuting a new finisher, the Breakdown. This championship victory was Jericho's first official World championship victory (Jericho had actually won the WWF Title from HHH on April 17, 2000 only to have that match stricken from the record 15 minutes later.) One night later, the two put their differences aside and won the WWF Tag Team titles from ECW's Dudley Boyz, with Jericho became a double champion. After they lost the titles to Test and Booker T, they continued their feud. On the November 5 edition of RAW, The Rock defeated Jericho to regain the WCW Championship with a surprise rollup. Following the match, Jericho savagely attacked The Rock with a steel chair, thus marking a full-fledged heel-turn that lasted for two years.
