Chris Jericho Speaks On Putting Over Young Talent, Goals Left In Wrestling
The following are highlights from a recent interview with part-time WWE Superstar Chris Jericho:
On goals he has left in the wrestling business: “I’ve done everything that I could ever want to do. If you would have asked me that question five years ago I would have said ‘I want to do this, this and this’ but over the last few years all of that has come to fruition. So if I never wrestled again, I would have no regrets. But hopefully that’s not the case.”
On his thoughts on putting over younger talent: “It’s my job. If I was an actor in a Spielberg movie and he said on page ten you die and I said I don’t think I should do that then he’ll say well get the hell out of here and we’ll get another actor. And it’s the same thing in the WWE. If I’m going to be going back on a part time basis which is basically the way is it for me now… if Vince is going to let me come back for two months, who am I to say no to anything that he wants me to do. And it’s kind of a fun thing for me to go there and work with some younger guys. I’m kind of bulletproof, so I can lose to pretty much everybody and it doesn’t really make a difference. But if I had my way I would be winning every match. It’s not like I’m going in there and choosing, ‘I must be the guy who puts guys over.’ Screw that, I want to win. But if Vince says you’re not winning, then I don’t.”
