Jericho on learning of departure minutes before Raw

During an appearance on the “Busted Open” satellite radio show, Chris Jericho revealed he wasn’t aware of how his WWE departure would be handled until 10 minutes before Raw went live on the air.

“I didn’t know until the day I showed up, actually 10 minutes before Raw started in Fresno that we were doing this contract vs contract thing. So I didn’t even know this was going to happen. I just figured I would have a match with Dolph and that would be the end of it. So people who think that there is some long, drawn out, plan. It really wasn’t. It was about 10 minutes before the show started and I was like ‘Oh, we are doing a contract vs contract thing? Oh ok.’ So there you go, a little special behind the scenes look.”
