The following are highlights of a new Boston Herald interview with Chris Jericho:
On his WrestleMania XXX status: "I'm not a part of it and I won't be a part of it. And it was my choice to sit out this year."
On the reason he decided not to return: "If I'm going to be at WrestleMania, it's going to be in a position that I can sink my teeth into, a position that I think is significant enough for somebody of Y2J's experience level and notoriety. Looking at the card this year and you see everybody who came back — Brock Lesnar and Undertaker are back, Triple H is back, Batista is back, and it's the ascension of Daniel Bryan — how many spots are there available for Jericho at this point in time?"
On the CM Punk situation: "Everyone's asking, 'Where is CM Punk?' Punk had enough of whatever was going on, and none of us really know whatever it was, and he left. And that's your only choice."
