Jericho talks about his return and more...
- Chris Jericho spoke with WWE.com about his return, how long he will be back and more. Check out the highlights:
On how long he'll be splitting time between WWE and Fozzy: "It might be for a month; it might be for a year, but when I'm here, I'm going to give it everything I have to be Y2J."
On his babyface return: "This is the first time in about 10 years that I've been a good guy. It's a good feeling for me because it's different. I worked so hard to stay hated for so long and now I can let go and just let people do what they want to do."
On his Royal Rumble return: "I got in the Rumble and people are chanting, 'You still got it,' and I'm like, 'I never lost it'...I was in the Rumble for 47 minutes and I was like, 'Wow, was it really that long?' Mr. McMahon even asked me, 'You did a great job for not working in a while; how did you stay in great ring shape?' And I'm like, 'I don't know.' I guess when you've been doing it long enough, it gets ingrained in your body and it's more instinct than anything."
On the up and coming stars in the company: "It's good to know that the new prospects that are coming in have some experience and have been around. Obviously, The Shield I was really impressed by them right off the bat. There's three guys that were given a shot and really took the ball and ran with it. Cesaro - I've been a fan of his before he even came here."
