Do you feel like WWE dropped the ball on Bray Wyatt? I thought he looked like a complete joke in his feud with Cena so I appreciated that you took him more seriously.

Chris_Jericho810 karma

Bray will be a world champion within a year

LinuxNoob385 karma

You don't mention much in your book about your 2010 departure from the WWE. How did you put that storyline together? Were there plans for you to return and feud with Orton?

Chris_Jericho311 karma

the plan was for me to return and feud with Orton for Wrestlemania. I chose to do DANCING WITH STARS instead

hgoodman8184 karma

Do you think the wrestling business is better off now (PG, concussion awareness, no blood, etc) or during the peak Monday Night War era (better creatively, more jobs with three companies, worse medical checks in place, etc)?

Better now.

Royal Rumble 2013. I describe it in detail in my new book

wrathofrath69 karma

CHRIS! Huge fan of yours. I have to buy new WCW Monday Night Jericho shirts every two years or so when they get worn out. Your podcast is the nuts too!

1) I know you put a lot of praise behind DDPyoga and what it has done for you; I mean, after all, you're in your 40s and you're still jumping off the top of steel cages! Has DDPyoga actually been that large of a factor for why you can still compete at such a high level at your age?

2) Any plans on coming back to WWE after your current tour?

Chris_Jericho160 karma

DDP Yoga saved my life.

GamerSDG67 karma

Thanks for doing this.

Of your feuds, which one you feel was under rated?

danram20713 karma

Hey Chris! I work with VH1 and was so ticked they didn't let us know you were in the house yesterday! I had to watch from a TV at my desk like a fool.

Anyways, did you approach Asa Akira for the podcast or vice versa? Of all the people, she seems so random lol. You never fail to impress me with your guests!

Chris_Jericho30 karma

We have the same publishing agent and I thought she would be interesting. I was right

All of them!

bigtice9 karma

Hey Chris, I’ve been a long time fan back since your Lionheart days in WCW and am still holding out hope that you’ll get another title run in the WWE before you hang up your boots. Since you’ve been dabbling in entertaining us in all forms in one way or another, my question was just to ask if you’re going to be making any new “But I’m Chris Jericho” episodes? Thanks for doing this AMA with us and I still think your WWF debut was one of the best, if not the best, EEEVER.

Chris_Jericho11 karma

BICJ has won a slew of awards and I'd love to do more! In the mean time I just shot a web series called 'Code 5" for Comedy Central that is equally funny. Should be released early next year.

bigjeffrey8 karma

Did Vince McMahon really not recognize Ken Shamrock as one of Mickey Rourke's bodyguards?

Chris_Jericho27 karma

It was Frank Shamrock

ArabianDisco6 karma

Did the band ever consider playing Wormwood live or was it far too difficult to ever pull off?

Chris_Jericho13 karma

Too crazy!

brandmed5 karma

I've always had only a slight interest in wrestling, but I am a big fan of yours mostly from your appearances on VH1's "I Love the..." series. You were really funny on those. What was your experience like making those?

I recently began listening to your podcast too. Great entertainment while I'm running.

Chris_Jericho11 karma

Had a blast doing those! Im anxiously awaiting I Love The 10's

wheresjah874 karma

You're debut in the WWF ( then it was anyway) might be my favorite of all time. Did you come up with the Y2J idea and what happened that night in Chicago? If not, who did?

Chris_Jericho21 karma

Y2J and the countdown clock were mine. The rest was Vince's

ZigglersHEEL4 karma

You've always been one of my favorite wrestlers. You're so god damn entertaining. How much fun were you having with the conspiracy angle?! You going to DC was absolute GOLD!!

HonkyMahFah2 karma

Hey Chris -- thanks for making wrestling fun to watch! Been a fan since the Ralphus JPS days. Here's the question:

How about a compromise....only one show a week with it?

Chris_Jericho13 karma

How about u eat my cowbell?

crandamaniac2 karma

Love the new book and the podcast. Everybody always asks what is your favorite match, but what would you consider your most underrated match, the match that you had that you loved, that not a lot of people seemed to either know about or loved as much as you?

Chris_Jericho3 karma

Jericho vs Cena MSG Dec 2008
