• Chris Jericho Talks About Not Being Able To Follow The Rock – Hulk Hogan At WrestleMania 18, Comments On CM Punk Being Disappointed About Not Main Eventing WrestleMania
During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about main eventing WrestleMania 18, The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan being the real main event that night & more.
Below are the highlights:
On The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan being the real main event of WrestleMania 18:
“Let’s be honest, the main event and the fact that it was on last, but the main event of the show was Hogan and Rock and I knew it. Most people would be pitching for their match to go on last, I was pitching for it not to go on last.
I was like, ‘How do you follow Hogan and Rock?’ and Triple H — rightfully so he was fighting for the title match to be last, but we couldn’t follow it, we just couldn’t and you could see the air go out of the room — that’s a match I’ve never watched it back. Because I remember being kinda disappointed in it, you know?”
On CM Punk being disappointed because he never got to main event WrestleMania:
“I said dude, you worked with The Undertaker at WrestleMania — that’s the main event, any Taker match’ — he says ‘Well you can say that because you were on last.’ I said, ‘Okay I was on last, but I wasn’t the main event.”
