• Chris Jericho Explains How He Made More Money In The WWF By Slightly Changing His Look Every Week

During a recent interview on Sports Media with Richard Deitsch, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about constantly reinventing himself during his 1999-2018 WWF/E runs.

Here’s what Y2J had to say:

“When I first started working on TV every week in WCW and more specifically, in WWE when SmackDown started, and we used to do both shows [before the roster split/brand drafts]. I said people are going to get bored of me pretty quickly if I am on TV twice a week and I look the same and have the same rap, shall we say? ‘We’ve got to change it up.’

I remember the late, great Pat Patterson said to me, ‘You always have different facial hair every week.’ And one of the reasons for that was because it was always something different. Subtly, it was something different.

I had different tights that I changed every week, and then I noticed that they would make an action figure for every set of tights that I wore and every set of facial hair that I had. So now you’re making more money too, because there’s more diversity of what people can market from you.”
