Chris Jericho Discusses Program with Fandango, TNA’s Mistakes & More

Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho recently spoke with The LAW – Live Audio Wrestling. Here are some highlights from the interview.

His program with Fandango: “It’s actually a feather in my cap. Not to be a jerk, but he was working with Chris Jericho in his first match ever on the show at WrestleMania. If that doesn’t put you on a different level, then nothing will. I knew that he’d have to come back down to earth at some point, because the fans aren’t gonna believe in him working with other people, because there’s not a lot of Chris Jerichos out there, and I say that with all due respect. What I mean by that is a guy who’s been around for as long as I have, with the fanbase that I have, the reputation that I have. People know that it’s going to be good, and something special, no matter what it is. Even if it’s a guy they’ve never seen. I put a lot of input into what we did with him to build that.

“Everything that we did, I meticulously thought of. ‘What should we do to get this guy over?’ Well, rule number one – I want to try and get this leg drop over. Rule number two – I want him to be a kick-ass heel when he’s getting his heat, because the gimmick is so ridiculous that if he doesn’t show that viciousness during the match, no one’s going to buy it. Little tricks like that that I’ve learned over the years that other people don’t know, and Fandango doesn’t know because he’s inexperienced. It was, like I said, a real feather in my cap. Fandango, the night after WrestleMania, was the most over performer in the company.”

His thoughts on TNA: “TNA has to do something different. I think the worst move they’ve made was Hogan and Bischoff and Sting. Nothing against those guys, but we’ve seen it so many times. It’s the third go-around for those guys now in the last 15 years. There’s people out there, revolutionary people, that can take it in a different direction.

“They’ve gotta get some different minds and some different faces and start working from within. That’s just my opinion. I think that they’re happy doing what they’re doing. They never get any bigger, they never get any smaller. If that’s what you’re into, that’s fine, but for me, I always want to take things to the next level and take some chances. If you don’t, and you’re just doing the same thing over and over again, then it gets boring. Good luck to them. I hope they do survive.”

    I agree with hogan and bishoff but not sting he’s got a lot of heart for TNA and the fans love him he’s got great mic skills and now that he can’t be world champ I’m cool 100 percent with him. But tna has much talent that are not being used because of the aces and eights which I don’t knw why its still going when bully is the only one who got over
