The UK Sun has a new article online today featuring quotes from Chris Jericho. Below are the highlights:
Feud with CM Punk: “It was a blast. It was the reason I came back. I went to meet with Vince in August to discuss working Wrestlemania with Punk. I knew we could do something with the ‘best in the world’ thing, and it amped up really well with the alcohol thing. It’s all about the storyline to get you to the match and I thought both matches were great. All that I care about is that I walked out of both of them feeling very vindicated and very happy with both. They were both excellent matches to add to my résumé.”
Match at Wrestlemania XXVIII: “There were people that thought our match at Wrestlemania was the best. We didn’t have the attraction vibe that the other two matches had. The Rock is an attraction at this point. The Undertaker’s streak is an attraction. Punk and Jericho was just your good old-fashioned wrestling match for a title. The other matches were amazing too. That some people said we had the best match on the show, I was very proud of that.”
The over analyzation of the cryptic videos to bring him back: “They were looking too deep into it — WAY too deep. It was just supposed to be a creepy thing. My idea was that it was the Mayan calendar in 2012 saying it’s the end of the world and I was going back and it’s the ‘end of the world as you know it’. That means that if one day you are walking down the street and you find a dog, and then the dog lives in your house, then it’s the ‘end of the world as you know it’. It’s the end of the way that you used to live and it’s a new world. The girl we just put in because she was creepy looking. There was never supposed to be a girl coming in with me — there wasn’t a change of plan. It was exactly what it was intended to be — a cryptic little cool thing that led to me coming back and doing what I did.”
