Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Jericho: “I love the WWE, I always have and I always will”

Chris Jericho did an interview with – here are a few exerts:

RCM: So you think it’s hard to be taken seriously as a musician when you’re already famous from your other career?

Jericho: The best example for me is 30 Seconds to Mars. They’re a great rock and roll band in their own right, but people will still say, “Oh, Jared Leto, he’s that actor…” Who gives a shit if he’s an actor! People should just care that he’s a great rock and roll singer who’s in a great rock and roll band.

RCM: How does performing in the WWE as an established wrestler compare with performing live with Fozzy?

Jericho: Now that the band is getting to the level where I am in wrestling, it’s so gratifying and exciting to see it all happening again. I love wrestling. I love the WWE, I always have and I always will, but when you’ve done it for as long as I have and gotten to the peak of the peak of the peak…a pay-per-view like “Money in the Bank” is a great challenge, but to me it’s just another pay-per-view.

    “What is Chuck Jerusalem doing in the Impact Zone, Tazz?”

  3. Kerry says:

    raven – That’ll never happen. Jericho will never wrestle anywhere but WWE, but he’ll keep making sporadic appearances, stick around for a while & leave to go back to playing music with Fozzy.

  4. Whatever says:

    He always had a bad taste.

    @Raven12516 hilarious, plain and simple

    Jericho’s best period was late 90s WCW. Everything he did was amazing. Every feud he had was gold. The feud with Dean Malenko was perfect. He was totally hilarious as a cocky heel coming up with his own material and having creative freedom. Because WCW was imploding at the top, Bischoff let a lot of the bottom and middle guys basically book themselves.

    He did alright during the late WWF Attitude period, but Y2J never seemed to find a niche in WWE’s corporate world. His stuff with Steph pales in comparison to his WCW run. He was too programmed and now was miming the words from WWE gag writers.

    Go back and watch his old WCW run and wonder what could have been.
