appeared at the Revolver Golden Gods 2012 Awards last week and was interviewed on the red carpet before the event.

Jericho said he and Fozzy intend to release new music by the end of August and plans to be on the road touring with Fozzy by then. Jericho also gives his opinions on who would win between wrestling and metal personalities.

The latest issue of WWE Magazine features an interview with Chris Jericho, who talks about his current WWE run, when he plans to leave again, his fued with CM Punk and much more.

Jericho said before CM Punk started “ripping him off”, he had no intention of coming back to WWE and was happy with what he was doing. “But when I saw C.M. Punk performing all of my stuff, it inspired me to return and remind everyone just what’s going on.”

Regarding his rumored departure from WWE this summer, Jericho said he might leave and come back again. “I outclass everyone in the company. It’ll be the end when I decide it’s the end. I might leave and then come back. Listen: When you get to this level, you don’t have to play by the rules anymore. When I can’t compete at a top level anymore, then I won’t come back.”

Jericho said he would consider working a schedule similar to the Undertaker’s, where he’d be presented as a “special attraction” and could come and go as he pleases.

He also said he recently changed his whole training regime and diet, but did not mention DDP Yoga specifically. “I made a lot of overall changes, lost a lot of weight. And when you’re physically sharper, that makes you mentally sharper as well.”
