Chris Jericho Talks WWE Negations, Feud with CM Punk, DVD Exclusion and More
Chris Jericho recently spoke with Wrestling Voice Radio, here are some highlights.
If there is an attitude of ‘if you’re not with us, you’re against us’ in WWE: “I don’t think it’s a vicious thing, I think there is just so much going on in the WWE at all times, so many angles, stories, it’s kind of out of sight, out of mind. If they had their way, I’m sure everybody who ever worked there would be working for them. If that was the case you’d have Steve Austin, The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart and every single person only working for them but guys move on and branch out and sometimes they support that, sometimes they don’t.”
How far talks went about a recent return to WWE in early November: “It wasn’t that much detail about it really, I called them and said I’D be interested in doing some shows over the next couple of months, but we just couldn’t work it out because I really can’t commit to anything. It was more like, if I had 2 weeks off I’d call them which I thought would be a great idea, but they need to plan and figure things out… it’s like a river, you jump in, you float down the river and you jump out and the river keeps going and it’s very hard to jump back in. I’m not opposed to going back, there is just no plans of it right now.”
His feud with CM Punk and being left off the ‘Best PPV Matches of 2012’ DVD: “I thought it was a great storyline, I thought the matches were great… I would like do have done another month and have it be 3 matches. It’s funny you talk about ‘if you’re not with us’, they just released a ‘Best Matches of 2012’ DVD and neither one of the matches me and Punk had are on there, and that’s just obviously just a political decision.”
If he could wrestle anybody, anywhere, any match, what would it be: “Funaki! In my basement, underwear match!”
