During an interview with TNT Sports, former Universal Champion Kevin Owens revealed that he did not enjoy teaming up with WWF Attitude Era Legend Chris Jericho, but is now ashamed of that fact, because looking back at those days now, he feels that he should have enjoyed it.

The Tag Team of Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens was sometimes referred to as ‘Jeri-KO’, and lasted from 2016 until they broke up in 2017.

Here’s what Owens said:

“I got to team with Chris Jericho for a long time and I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t enjoy that as much as I should’ve.

Looking back at it now I’ll see clips online, and Chris and I will text about them, you know reminisce of stuff we did together and I’m like that was a great time but in that moment I can tell you I was not feeling that at all.

I was always worried about what’s next. How are we going to make this better? So I don’t do that anymore I really just try to do what I’m doing from day to day. You can ask me what I wanna do next week right now and I won’t have an answer for you because I haven’t thought about it.”

After they broke up, Jericho and Owens collided at WrestleMania 33, where Owens defeated Jericho to win the United States Championship.

This match was originally scheduled to be for the Universal Championship, but plans changed when Goldberg returned to WWE and Vince McMahon decided to do Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar III for the Universal Title.

After runs with ECW (1996) and WCW (1996-1999), Chris Jericho wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) from 1999 to 2005 and again from 2007 until 2010 and from 2011 till 2018.

In late 2001, he became the first ever Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, thus unifying the by far most prestigious World Titles on the planet, the WWF Championship and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.
