7. Chris Jericho Refuses To Become A Part Timer
During a recent interview with Uproxx, WWF Legend Chris Jericho discussed his last WWE run that ended a few weeks back, Fozzy, part timers at WrestleMania & more.
Jericho was asked if he’ll be a part timer who shows up once every year during WrestleMania time and below is what Y2J had to say:
“No, I won’t do it because that’s not the way it should be. When you’re there, you should go on the road. That’s how you help guys to learn. That’s how I got better. This whole year I got way better because of working with the younger guys, who then were learning from me as well. They need that. And it was a great year with just an awesome locker room, great people, lots of fun. I had as much fun out of the ring as I did in the ring. And in 2015, all I did was live events. I didn’t do TV at all. It’s like the anti-type Brock Lesnar. I wouldn’t have a problem doing that either. Maybe I’ll never go back on TV again. Maybe I’ll just do live events.
The good news is for me I can do what I want and they’ll take whatever Jericho I can give them, so there’s no reason for me to have to decide. When the time comes, when this album cycle is done and then Fozzy take another break or whatever it is that we’re doing, I’ll weigh my options.
I’ll see what’s going on, I’ll see who’s around, and then we can go from there. And if not, like I said, it’s not a threat of like, ‘I’m gone.’ But if I never had another match it wouldn’t bother me.”
