VIDEO: Chris Jericho talks about his return to WWE
Jericho: “I got into the Rumble, and people were chanting, ‘you still got it.’ And I’m like, I never lost it.’ Whenever Fozzy plays, we put on a very intense show. A lot of energy, a lot of ya know, jumping and running. But when you get into the ring it’s a different story. And It’s funny, because when I heard I was in the Rumble for 47 minutes and 53 seconds, and I was like, ‘Wow, is it really that long?’
“Mr. McMahon even asked me like after he said, ‘you did a great job, but not working in awhile, I mean how did you stay in ring shape?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know.’ And then even on Raw, my first single match was like 18 minutes against CM Punk. Same thing. It’s like I guess just when you’ve been doing it long enough it just gets ingrained into your body and it’s just more instinct than anything.”
Jericho also had a word or two to say about how he is impressed by some of the newer wrestlers.
“It’s good to know that the new prospects that are coming in have some experience and been around a little bit,” Jericho continued. “And obviously The Shield, I was really impressed by them right off the bat. They were just three guys that were given a shot and really took the ball and ran with it. Cesaro, I’ve been a fan of his even before he came here. They’ve worked around the world and it benefited them when they debuted.”
