Chris Jericho: “If I Never Wrestle Again It Won’t Bother Me”


Chris Jericho was interviewed by The Mirror in the UK. Here are some of the highlights:

On his position with WWE and if we’ll see him back soon:

No time soon, I left last July and I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since then between Fozzy tours and doing the new Fozzy record and writing another book and doing my podcasts and a web series. There are a lot of projects in the Chris Jericho pantheon as always.
That’s not to say that I won’t go back but I have no plans as of right now, just because I have so much other stuff going on that I’m enjoying.

We’ll see, there’s no controversy or animosity it’s more of a timing thing; the timing has to be right for me and right for the WWE as well. When it is I’m sure we’ll both consider me coming back.

Jericho also talks about a possible Hall of Fame induction and reveals that he doesn’t mind not wrestling ever again:

I don’t think about that stuff man. I live in the now, I don’t really watch a lot of stuff that I’ve done on the past, I respect the fact that people enjoy my work and I’m very proud of it.
When it comes to the Hall of Fame if I get the call and if I’m available … Or if I really want to have some fun with it I’ll just pull a Sex Pistols or an Axl Rose and refuse to show up, and be like, ‘Don’t mention my name I don’t want anything to do with this.’ That would be kind of fun to do. I’ve never been the type of guy that wants that sort of thing.

You know if I never wrestle again it won’t bother me, I don’t want the big send-off – I don’t want the big farewell match where I’m in the ring crying in front of 70,000 fans because I’m such a hero and my career is done, I don’t look at it that way. My career continues to move forward.

One day much to my fans’ chagrin I won’t be wrestling anymore but I’ll playing rock ‘n’ roll in your town, or I’ll be doing a podcast and you can hear me twice a week, or I’ll be acting in some show or I’ll be doing a spoken word performance. It’s not like I’m just going to dry up and go away when I finish wrestling.

Much of what I’ve been doing over the last few years is what I’m going to be doing for the next 20 years or 30 years, and less and less of that will be in-ring performing. Not that I couldn’t still go out there now and kick ass and tear it up because that’s what I do but when the time comes that I feel I couldn’t do that anymore then I won’t do it.
