Quote Chris Jericho Interview Recap (In-depth for Gerweck.net)

SHOW: The Main Event, Sunday Mornings from 10:30am-12:00pm on www.MainEventRadio.com and 1690AM in Montreal
HOST: "Reporter" Ryan Rider
CO-HOST #1: Steve Rockamaniac
CO-HOST #2: Gavin the Loose Cannon

Chris Jericho made an appearance on the Main Event wrestling radio show based in Montreal, Canada on Sunday, November 4th, 2007. We had a great in-person interview with Jericho back in November 2005 at a Fozzy concert (voted interview of the year at the time actually by you fans). Now, two years later, it was time for an encore to talk about the new book, wrestling, and music. So without further edue…here are the highlights of the interview for you wrestling fans…

Q: Hey Chris, like I said great to have you on the show for a second time. How have things been with you lately?

A: "I haven't been doing anything for the last couple of weeks except for this book tour; I've got like two seconds of free time."

Q: The last time we had you on was right after your departure from the WWE, and now with the Save_Us videos rumours are running rampant about a return to the company. So, can you tell us anything about these "Save_Us" videos and presumably, your upcoming return?

A: "I can tell you that I've seen a couple of them; they're pretty wacky, they're pretty cool. There's a lot a of speculation and a lot of talking that I'm coming back and I'm always the last to know…no one has told me anything. I'm on this book tour right now; I'm going to be on this book tour for another 3 weeks, so until that happens I'm pretty much tied up. [Edit: Jericho may indirectly hinting that his WWE return will be in that time frame, possibly the Raw following Survivor Series]. People are starting to get mad at me, saying I was supposed to be on Raw on Monday. I never said I was going to be there…I'm innocent! I'm Innocent!"

Q: But the videos made people think you were going to be on Raw…it was saying dates like October the 28th, October the 29th, etc.

A: "It actually never said that though. It said SAVE_USX29. Everybody thought that's what it mean't but who knows. It's one of those things that people were assuming things that they shouldn't have been assuming.

Q: We've seen you teasing fans on returns the last couple of years on your website, do you enjoy doing that?

A: "When I was a kid, when I got into wrestling at a very young age in the 70's… with my grandmother I didn't know anything, nobody did. You knew what was happening on TV and that was cool. It was much more of a magical experience. I think now the fact that people find things out basically at their fingertips by looking at the internet or by listening to inside news and stuff…I think it takes away from a lot of the fun and the magic of wrestling. I'm a magician, I have many secrets and tricks and when people need to know things they'll find out. It's fun to see everybody speculating, getting mad.

If you actually watched the videos, it never said October 29th, never once. I just enjoy putting some suspense and anticipation back in the business where everybody knows everything weeks before. That's not fun, I don't like that. Even if I was coming back tonight… or a year from now, I wouldn't tell anybody. When it happens, people will know and will be excited. You don't want to know what presents you are getting for Christmas. You can go and find out, open them up beforehand, but the surprise is spoiled.

Q: Recently, you published a book entitled A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex, would you mind telling us a little bit about that?

A: "Well since you both read it, doing your homework, you'll know that it's one of the greatest books every written. Better than War and Peace, better than Lord of the Flies, better than Lord of the Rings! People are calling me the modern day Shakespeare. If Shakespeare were alive today they've said, he would be the modern day Chris Jericho. The book is basically the story of my journey of making it to the WWE. It's a 9-year of all the trials and tribulations both in the ring and outside of the ring. All the situations I've faced, highs and lows, life-threatening, dangerous, all that sort of stuff. I had a dream when I was very young, that I wanted to wrestle in the WWE, I didn't know how to get there but it was my dream. This is the story of all the places I went to from small time Canada, to Japan, Mexico, Germany, and all these other places until I finally made it into the WWE in 1999.

Q: In your book, you added in a foreword at the beginning to say how the Benoit in your biography is not the same man who killed his wife and son earlier this year. How did you feel when it happened? What do you think caused him to do the unthinkable?

A: "I never said exactly that in the foreward, what I said is this tale that happens from 1990-1999. This was a guy who I knew during that time who was very personal, professional relations, like a mentor, a big brother. And I wanted to address that because it's a very humorous, comedic, positive, uplifting story. With all the events happening, I felt I had to address it somehow so there wouldn't be a big black cloud hanging over it when people were reading it; wrestling fans and non-wrestling fans. I wanted to address it right off the bat. It was really quite irrelevant to my story. My story ends in 1999, but still Benoit is a pretty prominent character in the book and I felt I had to address it. How did I feel about it, how did you feel about it? It's just one of those things where nobody knows what happened and nobody will ever know what happened.

Q: Exactly. He was one of my favourite professional wrestlers and I always say you gotta remember him for what he did in the ring. Nobody knows, or at least I don't know what happened in his personal life and it's not for us to judge. [For more information and opinions on Benoit, check out our historic July 1st edition of the show available for download on our website].

Unfortunately this weekend, we have heard the news of the sad death of women's wrestling legend the Fabulous Moolah. Do you have any memories about her? Maybe a funny story to tell?

A: "Her and Mae always would always come sporatically from time to time. Moolah was a very nice lady to me. I didn't really have a lot of experiences with her, but whenever I saw her I always made sure to say hi. She always wanted to get a kiss and a hug, and talk about how handsome I was…she was right, I'm a sexy beast. She was really cool. I think it's just one of those things that people in the modern era just know her as being the wacky sidekick to Mae Young or the wacky old lady that came but don't really realize that she's the most influential and ambiguous women's wrestler of all-time and was for 30 or 40 years. She ran the entire women's wrestling operation from the 50's all the way to the 80's...

There's a huge history of Moolah. I'd love to read a real story of all the things that she did and went through. I'm sure there are a lot of deviant things since she was in charge of the entire wrestling world for women for so many years. In the 50's and 60's, women's wrestling was much more prominent than it is now; much more serious than just a bunch of stripper chicks getting in the ring and rolling around and thinking they can wrestle. I mean these girls were actually fighting, actually working, and in some cases having better matches than the guys and drawing a lot of money too. I'd like to hear some of those real truthful stories about Moolah. Nice lady, I'm glad she was involved in the business until the end, I think Vince was very adamant about it, because he respected what she did."

Q: I've been wondering about this for awhile now, how's Ralphus doing these days?

A: "I've done like 12 days of autograph signings and appearances and that by far and 'the Man of 1000 Holds' are the questions that I get asked about the most. And it's so funny because I think to this day if you ask Ralphus what happened he wouldn't know. He didn't have a clue what was going on, he didn't have a clue why he was where he was, and I haven't seen the guy in 10 years. I don't know what he's doing. All I know is that had WCW played their cards differently as they could have with hundreds of guys it seems, they could have made a huge star out of Ralphus. There could have been Ralphus dolls, there could have been Ralphus video games, Ralphus fake teeth, Jericho personal security Ralphus shirts, but they just decided not to and I don't know he's probably serving fries somewhere at a Burger King on Route 22."

Q: You're still rocking with Fozzy currently on tour around the world, how has the band been kicking and how come you didn't make a stop here in Montreal this time around?

A: "First off, I'm always rocking. Second of all, well we did make the stop in Montreal that time that you saw us in November [of 2005] was kinda the start of the World Tour which went all the way through 2005 until the middle of 2006. So we were actually there but then what happened after that is we went over to the UK, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Australia, and we found a really big fan base there, especially in the UK. We toured there five times after I saw you in Montreal and we did really good there…now we're just in the midst of working on some new stuff. I've written all the lyrics for it and now we just need to get together and put some tunes together and go from there. It's a long process and it's just at the early stages right now."

Q: Have you had a chance to follow either the current products, whether it be WWE or TNA? What are your thoughts?

A: "I like the fact that there's two companies going. It's fun to watch both companies. Obviously TNA is the underdog and they have a lot of growing pains but on the other side of the coin they've been doing everything that they've wanted to do. They started out on Pay-Per-View, moved to Fox Sports and then moved over to prime-time on Spike and then got a two-hour show on Spike. They've got some great talent, and its fun. Its fun that they'res a different place for fans and for wrestlers themselves to go. Both shows have pros and cons but it's great that there are a lot of different places to watch like when I was a kid.

For me, you know, I loved the AWA because that's when I first started watching, then I watched the WWF, and when I saw Stampede that's when I really knew I can wrestle and I wanted to wrestle. I discuss in my book that when I first saw Owen Hart because he wasn't a giant, he was so acrobatic, so amazing, and plus he was in Calgary, a place that I knew about growing up in Winnipeg… I knew how to take a bus to get there and that is when I really decided that I can do this and it gave me a lot of inspiration when I first started to watch Stampede. It seems to be going that way again now too."

Q: Theoretically, of course, let's say you were returning to the ring in the near future. Would we be seeing a new Chris Jericho? What would you hang onto from the past and what would be different when it comes to moveset, persona, whatever?

A: "I've always changed things up over the years. I love the fact that I had so many different looks and so many different moves that I can draw back on. The moves that is because I spent so much time in these countries; trained in Calgary, worked in Germany, worked in Japan, worked in Mexico, and had all these different things that can draw back on. I mentioned it in A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex, available in fine bookstores around you. I mentioned that I was very lucky that I had many different colours to paint my pictures with due to the many different experiences that I had. I'll always change things up. Lookwise, you're on TV 52 weeks out of the year, you gotta be different man. You can't look the same all the time, people get bored. It sounds kind of strange but I compared myself to Madonna; how she's always had a different look, a different style. It's always her but different variations of it. Basically I am the Madonna of wrestling."

Q: Well, you did cut your signature long blonde hair recently, I did notice that.

A: "I just changed my wig; I took off the long blonde hair wig and put on a different one. That's all part of it. It's one of those things, you change things up, you look different, but you still keep the things that brought you to the dance. Wrestling is show business to me. Number one, first and foremost, is being entertaining, is being a showman, it's being the party host, it's putting on an appearance that people remember. Part of that is changing things up and keeping it going. I think that it's easy to balance that. When you go see AC/DC in concert, they play some new songs and they play all the old hits that everyone loves and that's the way that I always look at things, the way that a band does things. Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden cut his hair, but that doesn't make him any less of an awesome, majesty king rocker and it's the same for Jericho."

Q: You are the Ayatollah of Rock N' Rolla, or at least formerly known as that. Playing into that name, I recently viewed the RF Video shoot with the Iron Sheik. I don't know if you've seen it, but he freaked out on the DVD and accused you of stealing his gimmick and started yelling out random expletives. What is your reaction to this new character of his?

A: "I am always known as the Ayatollah of Rock N' Rolla, that never changes! Well it's quite obvious that I've stolen everything I've ever done from the Iron Sheik from the pointy boots to the Ayatollah to the bald head to the huge mustache to the unintelligible promos. So yes, I have stolen everything from the Iron Sheik and I will pay him royalties as a result. That's just obvious. As far as this new character, that's the old character. That's the Iron Sheik that has been around for 20-30 years and it's very funny but it's also very sad because it's a train wreck waiting to happen. There's a reason why he talks that way and it's just sad to see. No one is going to step in and help him, they just think it's funny to watch him make a fool of himself; to be in a completely drug-induced, drunken haze. It would be nice if somebody can take him aside and try to help him out in someway. But that won't happen, so g-d bless him.

Q: Alright Chris, thanks a lot for being on the show today, we'd love to have you on again anytime. A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex is available now at bookstores everywhere as well as online. I would recommend it to all wrestling fans. Any final words from yourself?

A: "Yeah, I'm a sexy beast and things are cool. Continue to watch and at some point you will see many tricks and secrets revealed..."

You can listen to the full interview with Chris Jericho on www.MainEventRadio.com (November 4th show), in what could become the first two-time Interview of the Year Award winner!

Another entertaining interview from Chris. I love the fact he calls himself Shakespeare lol. What's with fans having a go at him for not turning up on Raw? He's never said he would be back yet and it just shows how speculation makes people believe. The interview almost comes across in a heel like way with his "full of himself" comments. I do wonder how well Fozzy can possibly promote a new album that's being worked on, if Chris comes back full time.

I think fans were so looking into the first vignettes that they were really disappointed that it didn't happen on RAW. And I don't expect his return to be this week, given the appearances of Steve Austin and DX. That just would get him lost in the shuffle.

Quote In an interview with BetweenTheRopes.com on Friday WWE star Chris Jericho was asked whether his fans were mad at his statement about not being at WrestleMania 27.

"They're mad when I said I was planning on being on Raw the next week after my contract ended or any of the pay-per-views," Jericho said.

"People are convinced that I'm going to be at the Royal Rumble. And the thing is, even if I was I wouldn't tell anybody. I might be at the Royal Rumble. If I was going to be there, I wouldn't trumpet it and tell the world. That's not how I operate."

I'm glad that he's keeping the cards close to his chest about later.
 
I think he's using the publicty to his advantage and that he won't be there later.
 
He likes surprises rather than spoiling his plans.

Very good interview with Jericho, I didnt know that he was leaning that close to not coming back but what else does the guy have to prove. He wants to promote his band and his book and nothing wrong with that. I wouldnt be mad at the guy at all for not coming back hes successful and he has money to fall back on why put his body through it and risk being lame when raising a kiddo.

He's right that people will be more emotionally involved in his second book, as many fans know more about his television days, than his early days.
 
Interesting views on Chris Benoit, which make a lot of sense.
 
Good that he's up for returning to wrestling, with the hope that a THIRD book would be about that run.

His first book was fantastic.  I'm fixing to read it again because I am ordering his second one if not this weekend then sometime next week.  Waiting on some moolah that I'm owed before I can order it.  I can not wait to read this.

Quote Ryan Rider sent the following:

CHRIS JERICHO INTERVIEW RECAP � MAIN EVENT RADIO

Chris Jericho Interview Recap: Chris Jericho appeared on the Main Event this past Sunday. The professional wrestler, former world champion, rock star, and actor discussed his new book Undisputed, already a New York Times Bestseller; as well as the status of his wrestling career, advice for TNA, throwing tobacco spit in the Rock�s face, his matches with Chris Benoit being buried in history, his band Fozzy, and more. Jericho is no stranger to The Main Event, making this his sixth appearance on the program.

SHOW: The Main Event, Sundays on CJLO 1690AM in Montreal
HOST: Ryan Rider

Can Be Downloaded At: http://www.MainEventRadio.com

I would like to introduce someone for his record breaking 5th appearance on the Main Event�he is a 2 time interview of the year winner�he is the Ayatollah of Rock N� Rolla with his band Fozzy�the first ever WWE Undisputed world champion�his new book titled Undisputed is in stores everywhere now�he is froot�he has travelled the world countless times and lives to tell his tales�let me present, Chris Jericho, welcome back into the Main Event!!

1) Well of course you�ve got your brand new book, Undisputed, which as mentioned is in stores everywhere now. How did writing this book differ from your first one, the New York Times Bestseller, A Lion�s Tale?

Undisputed is now officially a New York Times Bestseller. It is very gratifying. It takes a lot of time to write a book; it took a year and a half to get it how I wanted it. It feels good. Many times when you do something for the first time it�s always unchartered waters. You don�t really know how to do it, where to go. Now that I have one under my belt, I kind of knew the shortcuts but it�s a long arduous process. That will never change. This time I had more experience, more knowledge. It probably went by a little bit quicker because of my experience with the first one. If you�re going to do it right � for both of these books I wrote every word that you see. Everybody seems to like it, it�s being critically acclaimed. This is the type of buzz that you want.

2) One of the things I was surprised about in the early part of the book was the amount of heat that you had coming into WWE. The �tobacco spit� incident with the Rock� why do you think that the rock never laid into you for it and has that subject ever come back up in a conversation with rocky?

He remembers it, of course he does. What happened was it was the first match I ever had against The Rock. I did have a lot of animosity and uphill battles when I first got to WWE. I picked up a cup from the floor but when I threw it in the Rock�s face it wasn�t beer or soda, it was tobacco spit juice. He was really freaking out, it went in his eyes. He never really did nuts on me about it. I think because he kind of emphasized with me about it because he came in with a lot of animosity coming in. He kind of had the same thing when he was first coming in � he got a big push coming in, a lot of people didn�t like him. He got a really big push right off the bat and people didn�t like him. The cream always rises to the top. He was my only ally when I first got there in 1999.

3) You seem to be your own biggest critic throughout both of your books. Do you ever feel that you are a bit too harsh on yourself?

It�s one of the reasons I�m always successful in everything I�ve done. I�ve never settled for anything. I�ve always wanted better. I always want it perfect, but nothing could ever be perfect. It makes you strive for that. It makes you create better moments in wrestling, or in music, or in writing. As an artist you always want to get better. Every time you sit back and think �I am the best in the world at what I do�, but if you believe that all the time then you�re living in denial. That�s something that people appreciate in both my books is that I�m always very honest. When something didn�t work out the way I wanted it to work out I had no problems bringing it up and facing it. It makes for great stories and great writing no matter what the situation might be. I think Undisputed overall is a better book than A Lion�s Tale because it is just as funny, just as honest but it a lot deeper because of all the experiences I went through during the time period I wrote about. The first book is written from a guy in his 20′s with a frivolous and fancy free type of vibe. Things in life hit you in different ways. Mature experiences, grown up experiences seen from a guy in his 30′s sees it in a different vibe; but still very funny, very entertaining. A good movie will take you through an emotional roller coaster. That�s what Undisputed does.

4) Numerous times in the book you state that it is a shame that many of your classic matches are buried and technically do not exist anymore. Do you think that WWE should acknowledge the matches that you had with Chris Benoit?

I don�t really want to watch them. I don�t think I would get the same enjoyment or vibe from them after all that�s happened. I don�t blame Vince for now using them because he [Benoit] did a lot to damage the industry. It�s not a shame that they�re not shown; it�s a shame because of what happened. I would feel very uncomfortable at this point, maybe in the future, but not right now.

5) Wrestlemania X8. You got 1/5 of what your opponent HHH got paid for the event. I heard that Hogan wasn�t happy with his pay at the event either compared to what he got in the old days of Wrestlemania. Why, when you were the champion, did they book you so atrociously as Steph�s lackey and then sent you a low-end paycheck?

One didn�t have anything to do with the other. You can read the whole story in the book. It was my idea but the other part of the story where Stephanie and I were having an affair was left out. Then I would end up being pussy-whipped by her. People in the crowd always know someone who meets a girl and then you never see the guy again. Next thing you know the guy is wearing the same clothes as her, likes the same music as her. I thought it would be really good. Vince liked that part of it but not the other part of it. I was basically pussy whipped without the pussy. IMO I wasn�t really quite ready for it. It wouldn�t be booked like that the other 5 championship reigns I had. But at the time I was just trying to keep my head above the water and be a good soldier. This made for great stories in the book. Just because you�re the world champion doesn�t mean you�re the best. That was the problem at the time, I wasn�t the best guy in the company even though I was the champion. And that was the problem. You learn and get better as a performer. I had a better repore with Vince, with the performers. You get better with age. And that�s the way it should be. Whether you�re a performer, a soldier, a computer programmer, or the President of the United States, as you get more experience you get better overall.

7) Speaking of booking�you make a jab at TNA�s booking in your book. You also posted some tweets on your Twitter page (quote: After 10 yrs TNA talent still have an inferiority complex. If u don�t think that u work for the BEST COMPANY EVER then nobody else will! As a performer u hav to act and project that where u work is the pinnacle of competition! If not then the whole place just seems second rate)�What advice do you have for them?

When we worked in ECW it was a small company, I wasn�t making more than $250 a match, but you believed in that company. You believed you were better than WWE or WCW. When you believed it, the fans believed it. There were people there who would die for the company. That�s how you gain fans. If you don�t have the confidence in yourselves. If I�m watching something where they basically say we�re #2, and always talking about #1. Then why would I watch #2? I would just switch the channel to #1. If you work somewhere, you need to project that this is the best place in the world. Otherwise then why are you there, why are you wasting your time being there? I want TNA to grow as a company, it�s better for me as a performer and me as a businessman. But how can they grow if every chance they get they are constantly talking about up north and the WWF? When I was up north everything was against me and now I�m the champion. Well that makes you look bad. If I was working for TNA I would say that this is the best company in the world and this is where the best competition is. And leave it at that. If you don�t believe that then you shouldn�t be on TV working there.

8) What is the status of your wrestling career right now? I assume that you plan to come back down the line, but will this be sooner or later?

I left the WWE in September to tour with Fozzy. We have a lot of momentum behind us. We�ve been to England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, Australia, Canada, we just did a show in Los Angeles a few weeks ago which was cool. When I was a kid I had two dreams: to be a wrestling and to be a rock star. I�m not sure what�s going to happen with wrestling. When the time comes, if I feel like I�m ready to go back and that I�m going to be able to reinvent myself and do something better. Roll the dice, who knows. In 2005, I knew that I might have never came back, I was really burned out on wrestling. I knew that if I came back I wanted to be better than ever. This last time I wasn�t burned out, I just had other projects. I�m still a big fan of the product. Whatever happens, happens. I�ve been very fortunate that I�ve never contained myself within the wrestling box. I have a lot of projects that are very successful that I need to spend time on. A lot of people get mad at me by that but that�s what Chris Jericho has always been. If my name is on it then it is the very best that I can possibly do. In the WWE, if I was there right now I would not be 100%. And you can�t be that way when you�re working there, you have to be 100% committed. If not, step aside and let someone else take over that is.

You�re going to have to wait until Book #3. Undisputed ends when I return to the WWE in 2007. There is already 3 � years of material including the 3 best years of my career. Undisputed is going to do even better than A Lion�s Tale. There is no reason to not do #3. The material I have for #3 is just as good as the first 2. I still have a few years to go before I write but I would definitely like to write another one. But it is not about the numbers, it is about the quality. If I don�t think it would be as good, I won�t do it.

The question on the tabbaco spitting was very good and really well answered.
 
I'm shocked he was paid a 5th of what HHH was at Wrestlemania, despite him being the champ.

there's a bit more to that story about HHH getting paid give times as much as him but I won't tell it unless you want me to.  People really do need to get their hands on this book and read it.  Like A Lion's Tale though, it is very hard to put down once you start reading it. 

If you like music, there are a lot of music related stories too.

Quote Chris Jericho recently spoke with Slam Wrestling and here are some of the highlights:

Triple H taking over WWE:
"He's going to take over the company. This isn't the year 2000 anymore where he was trying to bury me. Nobody wants to be Bruce Hart, where he takes over Stampede Wrestling and goes out of business two years later after his father had it for 40 years."

Returning to WWE:
"It could be two days down the road. I'm still a huge fan of the business. When it's time to go back, I'll go back."

Favoring a PG-13 product:
"I think I did better in the PG-13 environment. It's easier to get pops when you say, 'ass.' they're going 'tee-hee-hee, he said a swear word.' I wasn't really doing any swearing. I just go with the flow. If I have to do an X-rated environment, I'll do that. And if it's PG, I'll do that."

He's right about HHH. He isn't the horrible guy he's made out to be, and i'm sure he will do great in charge of WWE.
 
Two days down the road would mean being at Raw tonight.......
 
He knows he's versatile enough to do whatever rating necessary.

Busted Open radio show highlights
Guest: Chris Jericho
Hosts: Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca
Date: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Jericho's interview promoting the book release of "Undisputed" was recorded on Wednesday morning and will air in its entirety on Wednesday afternoon at 3:05 p.m. EST on Sirius 125, XM 241.

WrestleMania needing a big angle:
Absolutely, but whats wrong with that? I mean, last week I listened to your guyss show and you guys were complaining as critics do that WrestleMania had no jump to it. Vince McMahon is a genius. You can say what you want and whatever you want to say. He will always pull stuff out his ass. You wait and see what he comes up with at WrestleMania. You think The Rock is the last thing is going to be the big selling point. No way! Im sure he's got two or three other things up his sleeve for this WrestleMania... Theres still five weeks until WrestleMania."

TNA:
When I worked for WAR in Japan, the company was half the size of new Japan, but for me, WAR was the best company in the world, and if anybody talked badly about my company, Ill fight you. And if we had any kind of interaction with New Japan, I wasnt trying to work for New Japan, I didnt give a s--- about working for New Japan, all I cared about was working for WAR, and flying the banner as high as I could... I dont care if TNA is the worst company in the world, I dont care. Once you sign a contract for there, you work for Dixie Carter, and you do the best you can to make people believe its the best company in the world, and if all youre doing is b------ about WWE, then go f------ work for WWE, or act like a hasbeen that used to work there. TNA should be the best place in the world to work, and if you dont believe that, the fans wont believe it, theyre not gonna buy your product, theyre not gonna believe your product, and theyre not gonna watch your product."

A WWE return:
Now thats the thing people ask me 'When are you coming back to wrestling? When are you going to do this? When are you going to do that?' I got asked today 'Are you? - the rumor is youre the new singer of Velvet Revolver?' Even if I was the lead singer of Velvet Revolver, even if I was coming out of the Chamber why would I tell you a-holes?

 Chris is telling the truth! i hope once his wwe career is up he should go into creative writting the man is that great! im a y2j fan but even if i wasn't we all need people like him in wrestling instead of people who are their because of the pay!
YES! YES! YES!
