Chris Jericho did an interview with Digital Spy where he spoke about a number of topics. Among them, he confirmed talks with WWE in November about returning but said they ultimately couldn’t come together on a plan to bring him back. He said he wouldn’t have been interested in working the 30-man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania XXX.
Jericho still has a good relationship with WWE and he could return if it worked for both parties.
Below are some other highlights:
His reaction to the streak ending:
“I loved it, I thought it was great. It was a legitimate shock, it got everybody talking. I think the right guy got it, if you’re going from a credibility standpoint, and if you’re going from a believability standpoint. As much as people and fans and journalists want to believe that it’s the case, I’m not sure if Undertaker had too many matches left in him. Maybe he doesn’t want to wrestle again. Maybe he knew that he couldn’t take any more.
The CM Punk question:
“I don’t know, man, who knows, right? That’s something that only he can answer for sure. To me, if he hasn’t come back already, then… I left the WWE for two-and-a-half years in 2005. The only difference was I left when my contract was up, but I disappeared too, because I just was over it. I couldn’t take it anymore, I wasn’t interested in being there, I was getting miserable, so I know how he feels.
