Chris Jericho Says Fozzy Takes Precedence Over WWE At This Point

Shares 0 has a new article online featuring a Q&A with Chris Jericho. While the majority of the album discusses Fozzy's upcoming album "Sin and Bones," Jericho talks about his latest run in WWE. Below is an excerpt: Switching gears Chris, you’ve had some incredible opportunities in and out of the ring over the past decade. Shortly you’ll be stepping away to spend some more time with your band. Looking back on your latest run with WWE which looks to be wrapping up shortly, what are your reflections on this latest run and is it still as fun for you as ever to be out there wrestling?

CJ: If it wasn’t fun for me I wouldn’t do it, you know? I took time off on the “Chasing the Grail” tour and once that tour was done it was time to move forward doing a new record and my job as a singer is to write the lyrics and to sing on the record. Lyrics were all done and doing vocals took about 15 days total so other than that I had nine months of nothing really going on. So it was the perfect opportunity to step back into WWE for awhile. But the plan was always when the new record came out, then I would leave and go back full time with Fozzy. So you know, we’ll see what happens in the future. I still love doing what I do in the WWE but like I said, Fozzy’s kind of taking precedence at this point. With all the momentum and great things we have going on, it’s cool to see this second dream come true. But it’s good to know too that WWE’s always gonna be there and I feel great. I thought this last run was awesome and I feel better than I did, you know, 3,4,5 years ago. So, you know, I’m raring to go for the next round.

    As it should, he’ll actually have a life AFTER the ring.

    Oh, Fozzy takes precedence over WWE at the moment? Translation: I'll be back at Royal Rumble

    • Meh

      Maybe, although Fozzy is touring Australia in late February/early March with The Soundwave Festival…

    He is ridiculously deluded when it comes to the success of Fozzy. Go to a mall, ask 100 people what Fozzy is and the answer "Bear." will either overwhelm the band by ten to one or be the only response you get. I can understand his desire to do something other than wrestling, but if he actually believes Fozzy has taken off like his wrestling career, then Jericho is crazier than I thought.

      His band is successful overseas. He has stated that in the past.

    • wrightsnake

      If he thought his band were as big as his wrestling career, then he wouldn’t take time off to tour and promote his band, he’d just stick to festivals. That’s how bands work; by touring

  • The Breaker

    No matter how great Fozzy ever becomes, he'll still always be known for his work as a wrestler. Rightly so.

  • Ethan

    Jericho is the best in the world at what he does, literally, wrestling, music, radio, author…etc, good for him
