The Sun in the UK is featuring an interview with WWE star Chris Jericho where he talks about his return earlier this year and why fans looked way too deep into the cryptic messages in the video packages.
“They were looking too deep into it — WAY too deep. It was just supposed to be a creepy thing. My idea was that it was the Mayan calendar in 2012 saying it’s the end of the world and I was going back and it’s the ‘end of the world as you know it’. That means that if one day you are walking down the street and you find a dog, and then the dog lives in your house, then it’s the ‘end of the world as you know it’. It’s the end of the way that you used to live and it’s a new world. The girl we just put in because she was creepy looking. There was never supposed to be a girl coming in with me — there wasn’t a change of plan. It was exactly what it was intended to be — a cryptic little cool thing that led to me coming back and doing what I did.”
