Chris Jericho responds to Chris Benoit Hall of Fame question
Chris Jericho did an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit today, available at this link. He was asked a range of question from why he cut his hair to the current state of the WWE to the controversial topic of Chris Benoit’s Hall of Fame induction.
Jericho and Benoit had one of the best one-off feuds in WWE History with the latter winning his first title in the company, the Intercontinental Championship by pinning the latter in a Triple Threat match. The two met at Backlash, Judgment Day and SummerSlam 2000 with Benoit winning all three matches but Jericho had the last laugh winning a ladder match at Royal Rumble in 2001.
Below are some highlights:
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. Bray will be a world champion within a year
Thoughts on the rapid rise of Dean Ambrose? Much deserved
What happened to Lights Go Out being in WWE 2K15? It's not listed in the official press release!
Tell me about it. I'm pissed
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?
the plan was for me to return and feud with Orton for Wrestlemania. I chose to do DANCING WITH STARS instead
Do you think Benoit should be in hall of fame?
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)?
Have you ever sneezed/seen someone else sneeze in front of Vince? What was his reaction?
He hates sneezing!
Why did you cut your hair? I much preferred it longer
It was a wig
Hey Chris who's your favorite Superhero?
