Chris Jericho on new book, relationship with Vince McMahon

first_img Seth Rollins Chuck Carroll sent this in.I had to the opportunity to talk to Chris Jericho this week on The Turnbuckle Weekly with Chuck Carroll.The full interview can be heard on the 106.7 The Fan and CBS DC website: While discussing his new book — Best In The World At What I Have Know Idea — I asked him about when he plans to return to WWE full-time. He didn’t have a specific answer, but said although he still has a passion for the business, wrestling was no long his priority.Jericho: “Over the last four of five years my schedules and dates surround Fozzy, and WWE has kind of been not as much of a priority. I still love doing it, but I realize it’s not something I’m going to be doing forever. I realized that years ago. To go back for the European shows, Roman Reigns got hurt, there was some injuries and I always enjoy working overseas. So, it’s kind of just a quick little run. Other than that I don’t know. When this Fozzy tour ends, whenever that may be, if I have time available and the WWE has something interesting for me to do. It’s not like they’re just sitting around waiting for Chris Jericho to come back. There have been times… I was going to go back for WrestleMania 30, but we couldn’t figure out anything for me to do that was worthy of that.”In the book Jericho writes about his up-and-down relationship with WWE chairman Vince McMahon. He said McMahon is surrounded by “yes men,” and he’s gained the boss’s admiration by not following suit.Jericho: “Yes, there is a lot of confrontations with Vince, but that’s because there’s a mutual respect. And some of them get out of control… It’s only because both of us respect each other, trust each other, and believe each other. It doesn’t mean I’m always going to like the things he does or the things he wants to do. And it doesn’t mean that he’s going to like the things that I do and the way that I act and react to things either.”We covered a ton of ground in the interview. Here’s what else we talked about:* More on his relationship with Vince McMahon* Cody Rhodes and Santino Marella’s bizarre posing competition at a post-WrestleMania party for WWE employees (judged by Undertaker)* Kid Rock’s reaction to said wacky contest (Jericho was standing with him)* How he selects which stories aren’t worthy of making it into the book* How he convinced editors to put a “bonus track” chapter in the book with extra stories* How the writing process has become easier with Best In The WorldThe full interview can be heard here: Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipWWE Lists The Shields Top 10 WinsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:04Remaining Time -0:26 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
