Chris Jericho Discusses Match Quality During Last WWE Run

Chris Jericho spoke with Donald Wood about taking time away from WWE and his match quality during his last run with World Wrestling Entertainment.

“People are always putting words in my mouth I never once used the word hiatus or retirement; I’m just not working there,” Jericho said. “I don’t know if it’s a long time, if it’s a short time, forever. I’m not taking a hiatus or sabbatical, my contract was up. I have a bunch of other stuff going on. “As far as why the matches were great, I don’t know, man,” he continued. “It was just a really good roll. It was like every match was better than the last and I was just in the zone. Experience level wise, many don’t have the experience that I have and I also think outside the box when I’m putting together matches, which other guys don’t. It just seemed like every match I had clicked. There were probably a few that weren’t as good as others, but the majority of them I was really, really happy with. Some bona fide best matches I’ve had in a long time. The Rob Van Dam match on Raw and the CM Punk one at Payback, I thought those matches couldn’t have been any better.”

    He should never go back to RAW. I don’t mean that as a negative remark. I mean he should go out on a high note. Too often wrestlers stay too long or come back for “one more run” and it’s sad to see them just being shells of their former selves. Jericho should leave wrestling behind now, with his head held up high.

        Yeah but he can’t compete at the same level forever. Age will eventually become a factor with him. An athlete should know to take his final bow while he’s still having great matches so people will remember him fondly. Sort of like being a comedian, it’s better to leave the stage when the audience is laughing hard than when the audience stops laughing. Jericho proved he still had the chops. Better to go out with a bang.
