Chris Jericho Discusses His Future With WWE, Kevin Nash’s Recent Controversial Comments, More

Chris Jericho recently took part in an interview with Between The Ropes in which he discussed performing with Fozzy, what he considers the best period of his career, and more. In the following excerpt, Jericho responds to when – if ever – he intends to return to WWE:

It makes me laugh because we do signings every day at Uproar after our show.  We have great fans but probably, I’d say one out of ten of them, will say ‘When are you coming back to wrestling?’  It’s like, it hasn’t been a week.  Last week I lost the thing and then it’s like on a Wednesday – ‘When are you coming back?’ What is the percentage?  I don’t know.  Depends what we have going on tour-wise.  I don’t think we have anything booked as of yet.  I know we’re going to Australia at the beginning of March with Metallica.  I don’t when exactly. When is WrestleMania?  At the beginning of April? There’s always a chance.  Once again, it all depends on what’s going on with Fozzy and where we’ll be at with the band.  There’s always a chance.  I definitely don’t want to make this something where I’m on for another year again.  If there’s something where I can pop in from time to time.  I think that would be pretty cool.  Let’s say as of right now there’s a 50-50 chance.

He also touched on Kevin Nash‘s recent controversial comments:

Nothing really hurt me about it. I think it was a stupid statement. Whether he was trying to push buttons or not, whatever, but that’s my generation. Those were my guys, and I was there. I lived through it, dealt with it. It just was a stupid statement, whether he’s trying to pull strings or whatever. I don’t think he was. I think he was just saying it because he really believed that, and it’s the typical big man mentality. Big guys always think that way, until they look through their career and realize the best matches they ever had were with guys that were my size. So I said what I had to say about it, and I wasn’t going to get into a war with Kevin – I like Kevin – but I think it was a dumb statement.

    I think I almost get as big of a kick out of how upset Nash can still make people as he does. Whether it be in 144 characters or less on Twitter or in an interview for some obscure magazine or website. It really cracks me up because he’s made it quite clear, on numerous occasions, that he’s constantly working people just to get a rise out of them and also get them talking about him at the same time. It works very well that’s for sure. Because that’s something that happened well over a month ago, yet people are still talking about it. I love that he works people and they don’t even know it. The guys literally a P.R. genius…

      Nash isn't a PR genius, he's an attention starved has been. The fact that he knows which wrestlers to insult to get that attention doesn't somehow make him a genius.

      You don’t use twitter do you?

    • ChrisH

      It’s funny that when Nash does it he’s a “genius”, but when people respond in a similar way it’s not them being a genius, but getting “upset”. Because its totally Nash that’s the coolest and everyone else is stupid. Fucking eye roll.

    Nash had some nerve saying that Benoit and Guerrero couldn't draw, yet he was the lowest drawing WWF champion of all time and is partly responsible for the death of WCW.

    • Razmos01

      Everyone in WCW was responsible for its downfall

      • Tony P.

        Stfu with that. WCW’s downfall occured when Ted Turner sold WCW and the new owners decided they didnt want wrestling on their channel anymore.

  • Matt

    I was so mad, Fozzy was in the Detroit area two days ago and I missed the show. Been wanting to see them for a while now.
