this deck is 61 cards(please tell me what to cut. lol)im having some problems.
The first problem im having is deciding what manuevers to play from major. Second, im having a problem with my guarantee strategy to get on board for fortitude. I keep going back and forth on if i should focus on panic manuevers or for the love of the game.

my pre match is pretty basic simple face lineup. Also, i decided to run old school wrestling match because i figured it might trigger for my opponent and never for me since i can search.

i decided to pack major announcement regularly so i can abuse the and the crowd goes wild when im lower. but my main idea with this deck is that i figure can maybe try to out last my opponent since i can recover from multiple areas. and also, i jsut wanted to play chris jericho. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

You have both Ole and Blindside Takedown in the deck, one of the two has to be cut as one is Cheater and the other is Fan Favorite.

Before further comment on the deck - are any of those cards Throwback or are they the original versions?  That makes a difference when evaluating Announcement decks.

The chicken wing is the throwback version. So is the breaker.

As of the 2021 Revisions, Sexy Beast is now required to pack Major Announcement in the Backstage, not the Backlash deck.  So Major Announcement needs to move to the Backstage, opening up 1 more Pre-Match slot.  Some of your options for that last Pre-Match slot include Premier WWF Superstar TB (which I'd recommend if you choose to go with more For The Love's, since it allows you to play them all in the Pre) or Interviewed by Mean Gene (which gives you get-started help from Turn The Tide and Turn Up the Heat, as well as unstoppable uniques for World Tour '05).   

For the question about Panics vs For the Love's, until you've played a little more with Sexy Beast to see which one you'd like I'd say "Why not both?"  They each have their distinct advantages (Panics require two reversals and put a Strike in your Ring, For the Love is harder to reverse but if they flip on the damage you're stuck at 2F).  The only change I'd make in that respect is I'd replace one Fireman's Carry with a Throwback Double Leg Takedown that you intend to play after For the Love, which will get you to 6F (which means the Chicken Wings can start flying).  Having the ability to search for and shuffle these cards in irreversibly as well as bury them when they're unsuccessful means that you'll really only need 1 copy unless you get super unlucky, and even if it gets gone, you still have the Fireman's Carry to play after For the Love.

Another mid-match option could be Sending the Crowd Home Happy, since you have the required number of maneuvers (12 when you need 10) from Major Announcement to trigger the victory condition, and it's also a relatively good reversal in the Backlash to have.

And finally, I don't close any Jericho Deck Review without recommending Dynamic Finisher, since it's a 0F action that, when successful, lets you bury 3 cards with World Tour '05, then discard it, put it back in your hand, and shuffle your deck.  Essentially if they don't have action reversals, it's unlimited recovery.  Also, it's a good mid-range TMF.
