- WWE.com recently spoke with Chris Jericho about them unifying titles and more. Here are highlights:

WWE.COM: What did it mean to you to be Undisputed Champion? What was it like the night you won?

CHRIS JERICHO: Winning is one of those things I look back on very fondly, even though I don’t remember a lot about it. The night itself is almost a blur, because it happened so fast. I remember more about afterwards, when I had to drive to Anaheim [Calif.]. By the time I got to my hotel, everything was closed. I had to order a pizza from Domino’s, but they wouldn’t deliver to my room. I had to go down to the lobby and I locked myself out of my room. I had to argue with the desk guy to let me back in the room, where my two titles were. It was a classic “dining with kings and queens, ending up in the gutter eating pork and beans” type of thing, all in one night.

WWE.COM: Your new podcast, “Talk is Jericho,” is already taking off. How did that come about?

JERICHO: My good friend Steve Austin has a podcast. He’s one of the few guys I still talk to on a regular basis from my time in WWE. He called me and asked me to do his podcast. He mentioned that the people that he worked for at PodcastOne were interested in me doing one. I’ve been looking for a way to break into that world. It was very much an act of happenstance that Steve called me and said they were looking for me.

WWE.COM: How do you think Randy Orton will handle being WWE World Heavyweight Champion?

JERICHO: I think he’s going to handle it the way he should handle it, which is knowing that it wasn’t easy to get it. Anybody who’s going to take it away from him is going to do it at the expense of their own safety. There’s not a lot of guys in the company that have more experience than him or more championship runs. It’s going to be very hard to beat him. I expect him to react like he’s never reacted before. He’s going to be a whole new guy. If he doesn’t, he’s going to lose it quickly.

WWE.COM: WrestleMania season’s approaching. The WWE Universe wants to know — are you getting the itch to get back in the ring?

JERICHO: I don’t really have the itch. I’m super busy with all the stuff I’m doing, between Fozzy tours, we’re getting ready to record a new record, the podcast, “But I’m Chris Jericho,” which is another big hit. I’m also finishing my third book. There’s a lot of stuff going on. Having said that, I’d be open to it, but I haven’t had any conversations or anything like that. It’s WrestleMania. Anybody that’s been in WWE wants to be involved. If I’m there, it’ll be awesome and I’ll do everything I can to have the best match on the show. If I’m not, I’ll have a great time watching it, I’m sure.
