The attitude only pops up at moments but i agree; its still there.

Its all on what Jericho wants to do and hes said before he plans to intertwine to 2. Not because WWE is making him but because he loves entertaining, thats his job; Weather its rocking with Fozzy or preforming majestically in the ring. He truly has accomplished everything and COULD walk away as he said but we all know how Y2J is in his interviews; he never gives you anything. And even if he did, its probly a swerve.

No doubt that Y2J comes back in my opinion. I think he just took the time off for this tour and is returning when its wrapped up. Thats if what I READ is correct.

Quote It has been noted for months that WWE superstar Chris Jericho would be taking time off from the company this month to tour with his band Fozzy. Jericho was a recent guest on Busted Open w/ Dave LaGreca & Bully Ray. Y2J discussed getting over the younger talent, had high praises for AJ Styles & didn’t hesitate to mention how successful his recent WWE run was.

Here are the highlights:

Original Plan For His WWE Run & Touring W/ Fozzy:

“The original plan was for me to finish after Wrestlemania . Then Vince had the idea for me to stay through April 30th and then May 1st and then May 2nd, so it’s a little bit crazy. But yeah I think it’s fun. We had a break for about a year and a half with Fozzy so getting back in the room with the guys and just rehearsing and playing Judas for the first time live, it’s really exciting. It takes me right out of the WWE world and straight to Fozzy world very quickly, which helps because I don’t even really remember what happened on Smackdown. It’s a little bit crazier than I expected.”

Getting The Younger Talent Over:

“Guilty as charged on all accounts. When it was time for me to win, I would stand up for myself and say I need to get this victory. But most of the time it was putting over guys and you mentioned AJ. I take great pride in the fact that when he came into the company, and I know how Vince thinks and that he doesn’t care what people have done outside of the walls of the WWE. I knew that if I could work with him for a couple of months that I could help him with the small little things that he didn’t know about WWE that he picked up in about two weeks and also get him over with the boss right away. And that’s basically what happened and AJ is the best in the world I would say at this point. He was when he came in but still there was a little bit of a transition and then working with Ambrose and all the stuff we did with him tearing up my jacket and the potted plant and the thumbtacks and all that stuff was great. And then I transitioned over to Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins and I worked a while with Roman Reigns which was great and Sami Zayn and Neville, the list goes on and on. It was a great time to be in the business because the locker room is filled with great guys, young guys. It reminds me of the early 2000’s when guys like me and Bully, Eddie and Chris and Dean, you know all the guys that were there at the time, the Hardys, Edge & Christian. Everyone wanted to work together to have a great match. Not that that ever changed, but it’s really exemplified and amplified now with the locker room that we have. It was a blast to be there in the ring and learn from those guys. I changed my style a little bit accordingly, to kind of stay current and also behind the scenes in the locker room after the shows, it was just a really great year and it’s something that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. Whether I come back to the WWE or not, I’ll always remember this year as one of the biggest highlights of my 27 years on the job.”

On His Recent WWE Run Being His Best:

“Not to pat yourself on the back, but if you ask me “Was this the best run of my career?” that’s not for me to answer, it’s for the fans and the people who watch the shows to decide . It’s definitely one of my favorites, top two along with the the Shawn Michaels feud and that era of Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show was my partner. This year, I would like to say that we were geniuses and we thought to do this from the start and orchestrated the whole thing, but it just was all very organic. The whole partnership with Kevin Owens, the whole “list, stupid idiot” all that stuff it just became a thing much to my surprise to be honest with you. And Bully Ray will tell you this, when you catch lightning in a bottle in the wrestling business, you gotta run with it because you never know if it’s going to happen again. So as soon as everything really started getting over last March, we knew that we really weren’t doing much with Fozzy and the guys were doing another Stuck Mojo record so I said “Listen, I’m just gonna stay in WWE for 2016, I’ll take a break from the road with the band. I think it was a pretty fun route because it just kept getting better and better even up until Smackdown on Tuesday. It was a great way to end the saga between Owens and Jericho because it started organically and then we went through the whole ups and downs and all this other stuff and turning on each other and then finally getting the surprise win on Sunday and then having him take me out, kill the “knight in shining armor” on Tuesday I think was a fitting end and a nice way to kind of button everything up.”

 
I agree with him that AJ Styles is the best in the world. I've always found it stupid that Vince doesn't care what people have done in the past, because it's their past that gets them noticed by E.
 
Love that he speaks so highly of those he worked with. So much fun that every fued during his recent run was with a much younger guy in a fresh storyline instead of against someone he had past history with or was a person to his own level of stardom.
 
Not sure if it was his best ever run, but I wouldn't argue against it if others thought so. Fresh fueds, new sayings and good as both heel and face as usual.

QuoteIn an interview with The Players’ Tribune, Chris Jericho promoted his match against Kenny Omega at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 12. Here is an excerpt where he lists his favorite opponents over the years, including his feud against Shawn Michaels.

"The intensity of this feud is what really sets it apart. It was only supposed to be a one-off kind of match – a few-week program – but Shawn and I both knew that we had a lot more to give than that. We had first worked together in 2003, and had both really enjoyed it, and ended up having a great match to cap things off at Wrestlemania XIX. But 2008 was an entirely different animal. It started after Shawn retired Ric Flair, and the story we told from there just sort of had a mind of its own.

Every time we went back and forth with ideas on where to take the program, things would evolve and we would manage to take it a step further on TV. It wasn’t the same Jericho that had become popular from my WCW days, but a much darker and more serious wrestler. It was just a brutal, violent feud. We had a great match at The
Great American Bash, and then for the following two months we continued to roll – there was a retirement announcement, Shawn’s wife got involved, and I even got so much momentum from the feud that when it all finally culminated in an epic ladder match at No Mercy, the world championship belt was actually on the line.

The whole program ended up lasting a little more than seven months program. A hundred years from now, Shawn will probably still be talked about as one of the greatest performers in the history of wrestling. Being able to work with him in such a big way in 2008 is something I will always be proud of. I’m still waiting for WWE to release the two-disc, special edition Blu-ray featuring Shawn and me and the Undertaker-Edge feud that was happening on Smackdown around the same time. WWE has never mentioned plans to release such a Blu-ray but, nevertheless, I’ll continue to wait for it."


His matches with Shawn were some of the best WWE had to offer especially the one at Unforgiven 2008 I felt that one was one of their best because of the story they told in it. 

Jericho has had a lot of great opponents over the years and a lot of great matches I couldn't tell you a Jericho match that wasn't at the very least a 3 star match maybe before his time in WWE.

The Goldmine: WWE Continues Trying To Push Roman Reigns!

In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, the legendary Chris Jericho took some time out from his busy Fozzy touring schedule to shed some insight on his future plans in sports entertainment, among other things. Interestingly, Chris commented very little on his upcoming appearance at WWE'S The Greatest Royal Rumble, but did however take the time to discuss Roman Reigns. For many of us, The Goldmine included, the name Roman Reigns signifies a feeling of dread followed by a deep an uncomfortable cringe. In his interview Chris made a point to once again praise Roman Reigns. Click on the link above to see proof. You'll also here Chris discussing how he doesn't want to upset WWE executives... To me, Jericho's comment regarding Reigns sounded influenced by WWE brass. Now, I am just speculating but I highly doubt Chris Jericho truly feels about Roman the way he described him in this interview. On a side note, Jericho spoke very little of the Undertaker burying Rusev match - one that is highly anticipated as as many have speculated will be Rusev's last performance for WWE, at least for now. Personally, I am looking forward to The Undertaker burying Rusev in the casket match at The Greatest Royal Rumble this coming Friday.

Well edited Kon.

This interview sounds like IWC drivel. Very few people actually have a bad opinion of Reigns inside the business. It's pretty much just the fans who have rejected him, but even they are coming around.

Quote During a recent interview with Jim Norton and Sam Roberts on Sirius XM, Chris Jericho claimed that ever since he signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), he has been banned from WWE and talking with WWE talents. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On if he’s talked with Vince since signing with AEW: “I’ve talked with him a couple of times. But I’m kind of public enemy number one there now. I’ve been kind of removed from the annals of history. I asked the other day if I could have a couple of their guys on my podcast to promote Mania and I was told, ‘No, it’s not appropriate because you’re in AEW.’ I am banned from WWE.”

On how far the ban goes: “I think my stuff is still on there [the WWE Network]. I haven’t been disgraced. But as far as I know, they had to take some videos down from UpUpDownDown of me playing. Took that off. They edited some stuff from The Edge & Christian Show that had my name on it.”

On WWE’s Hall of Fame speeches: “Here’s the problem though. When you have something like the Hall of Fame that’s so subjective. Once again, you can’t have one guy go 45 and then Stone Cold Steve Austin I think went five minutes or ten minutes. If someone’s gonna talk for 45 minutes it should be Steve. They should weight it on, ‘Listen, we love you, but you’re the opening match. The opening guy. You get, you know, ten minutes. You’re lucky to be in it.’ And as you get to the top, the main event guy, you go as long as you want within reason. I think that’s the way to do it.”

He can hardly complain. Vince isn't going to let a top talent from their nearest rivals, continue to interview their stars.

I wouldn't have edited his name off the Edge and Christian show though. It's just a name, it's not like they are promoting Jericho.

He's correct about the HOF. The amount of speech time should go up as you get further towards the end of the night.

And here I was thinking that when he was talking about WWE Hall of Fame, that WWE was going to induct him. Probably not until he is 60 at this point now, huh?
