• Chris Jericho On Why He Was Disappointed With His WrestleMania X8 Main Event With Triple H, Says His Undisputed Title Reign Was Terrible

During a recent interview with Inside The ropes, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about his WrestleMania X8 main event with Triple H, his Undisputed Title reign in 2001-2002 & more.

Below is what Y2J said:

“Let’s be honest, it was a main event in the fact that it was on last, but the main event of the show was Hogan and Rock and I knew it. And I was actually most people to be pitching have their match on last. I was pitching for us not to go on last because I said, ‘How do you follow Hogan and Rock?’ And Triple H, and probably rightfully so, was fighting for the title match to be last but we couldn’t follow it.

We just couldn’t and you could just see the air go out of the room. That’s a match, I’ve never watched it back I remember being kind of disappointed in it, main event at WrestleMania?

Just because you’re on last does not make you the main event, but still, we were on last and I can say that I still have the card that they gave out with the programs. It was an old school card that had all the matches: WrestleMania main event – Jericho vs. Triple H. And with my legacy established and some people saying that Jericho is the G.O.A.T and all this other sh*t, at the time, I was the first Undisputed Champion but that was the end of the line.

It took me 7 years to win the Title back again, and that run with the Undisputed Championship – to win it was great. But the whole run with it was terrible for me, in my opinion.

It was more of a forgotten thing, so, the buildup for the WrestleMania match wasn’t great, the positioning of the match wasn’t great, and in my opinion, the match wasn’t great, but, I can say I was in the main event of WrestleMania, so, there you go.”
