New Chris Jericho Interview On CM Punk And More

Chris Jericho did an interview with FoxSports.com and he talked about the CM Punk situation and more. Here are some of the questions:

FOXSports.com: WrestleMania XXX is on April 6. Are you excited to watch it or do you not have much interest since you’re not part of the WWE at the moment?

Chris Jericho: Kind of half and half. I’m not wrestling because I choose not to. I have other things going on. I don’t see myself wresting five years from now, so now is the time to make that transition. I follow the shows more online than anything. I don’t really watch wrestling because there are too many other things I like to watch. If I were at home for a couple of days, I’d rather watch “True Detective” or “Walking Dead” or “House of Cards” than wrestling. WrestleMania, I might check it out if I’m home. But my house isn’t really a wrestling house. My kids don’t care for it, my wife’s not a fan. If I do watch it, it’s more like I have to tape it and watch it later.

FS: The big story in the WWE right now is the status of CM Punk, who walked away from the company a couple of months ago. Did you walk out on the WWE? And what is your opinion on what Punk did?

CJ: No. I’ve never done that. When I felt the way that Punk did in ’05, I just waited until my contract was done, and then I left for two-and-a-half years. I never walked out in the middle of a contract, nor would I. I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing that Punk did because that’s his decision. I don’t know anything about it. I know as much as everyone else. The thing is, the wrestling business goes on. There’s never been one guy who has ever left and caused the business to shut down. Hulk Hogan left. Bret Hart left. All these guys have left and guess what? They get replaced.

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    Jericho hit the nail on the head about CM Punk. Did it professionally too.

    • Matt

      I really thought so, too. Business will continue and he will be replaced. We’ve seen it a million times and look at Bryan’s push right now. That could be Punk.
