Chris Jericho on Ryback, Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, more
Digital Spy in the UK recently held an interview with WWE Superstar Chris Jericho, who was promoting Fozzy's upcoming tour in the UK in March and the WWE Network launching in the UK. Jericho spoke about Ryback’s interview in his podcast and the Raw promo he aired few months back. He also shared his opinion on whether Roman reigns is ready to main event at WrestleMania 31.
Below are some of the highlights from his interview:
Ryback appearing on his podcast and using the interview for his RAW promo:
"Loved it! That's why I wanted to have Ryback on, I wanted people to see his personality, to hear his passion. He was unfairly accused [by CM Punk], in my opinion, of certain things, but I worked with Ryback for months and loved it. I know he's not dumb and I know he's not an idiot, and I just wanted to give him a chance to tell his side of the story and show his personality and let people know what he's all about."
If Roman Reigns is ready to Main Event WrestleMania:
"I think Roman's doing great, I think there's a lot of guys doing great, but it all depends on the reaction of the fans and I think right now the next two or three weeks are crucial to see what kind of reaction these guys get and that will decide where they are going to be slotted in WrestleMania. They're listening to what the crowd is reacting to, and then deciding from there.
"If Roman Reigns is getting a great crowd reaction, then there's a great chance he's going to get more and more of a push - that's how things go. I think they probably have a tentative plan already for the top three or four matches at WrestleMania, now they just have to see if the pieces continue to fall into place."
Jericho also talked more about Ryback, his first passion, how WWE programming has changed, if he will be at The Royal Rumble or WrestleMania and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
