• Chris Jericho Reveals The Most Important Thing In Pro Wrestling
During a recent appearance on ‘WTF with Marc Maron’, former WWF Undisputed World Champion Chris Jericho revealed the #1 most important thing in all of professional wrestling.
Here’s what the Attitude Era Legend had to say:
“Wrestling is all character. The moves are important, and the matches are exciting, but you have to connect with the audience. It’s just like comedy, or acting, or anything. You have to connect with the audience.
If you can do that to a high level, the audience will pay to see you, and they’ll be interested in what you’re doing.
That’s the number one thing of wrestling, it’s storytelling. There’s gonna be some crazy matches, where the athleticism is through the roof, but the stories behind them are the most important thing.”
Chris Jericho undoubtedly managed to reinvent himself during his long illustrious career, that already lasts since 1990 and isn’t going to end anytime soon.
Whether he appeared with the nicknames ‘Lionheart’, ‘Y2J’, ‘The King of the World’ or ‘The Ayatollah of Rock’n’Rolla’, there weren’t many people in professional wrestling who had the ability to reinvent themselves as often as Jericho was able to do.
