Chris Jericho recently made an appearance on The LAW this weekend. Here are some highlights.
On extending his deal with WWE through the summer:
“I went to Connecticut to meet with Vince McMahon last year after SummerSlam, and my plan was to come back in December, do the month of vignettes, then work January to the end of May, and then in June we were supposed to embark on the tour for Sin and Bones, because originally it was supposed to come out in June. Then when I found out that the record wasn’t gonna come out until mid-August, I said, “Well, I’ll stay for another three months, until the end of August.” Until SummerSlam, basically. I kind of re-signed and extended my deal for another three months at the beginning of May.”
On his match with Dolph Ziggler at Summerslam:
“They wanted to start the show off with a bang, and I don’t care if I go on first, last, in the middle, whatever. But if I’m going on first, I’m gonna be going out there to make a statement and kick it off with a bang, and I don’t want anybody to be able to follow it. I think the LA crowd was primed; SummerSlam is a big deal, they’ve promoted it and done a great job of making it the second biggest pay-per-view of the year, and the crowd was crazy. And honestly, it’s fun to kind of end off that last run as Y2J, as a good guy, after being the hated heel for basically the better part of four years.”
