Chris Jericho has been a prominent part of the WWE for nearly the last two decades. In over the last couple few months, his future with the company has become a topic of conversation. In a recent interview with “The LAW: Live Audio Wrestling,” Jericho revealed some intriguing deals about his professional wrestling career.
Like I said earlier, once again I have mentioned his name quite a bit but I have a very close working relationship with Vince McMahon and neither one of us expected this. Both of us would like to sit back and think we were the be all, end all wise oracles that predicted this. I will tell you this, my original plan when I came back last January was to stay until WrestleMania, four months. Then, it started going so good, I re-signed I think until July and then I re-signed until October and then I re-signed until November. Now it’s basically a month by month thing. I’ve got a certain time frame in mind but I can’t even say that because what was supposed to be four has already been ten because I am smart enough to know this. I’ve been doing this for a long time and to have – like you said, this could be my best run, I still think my 2008 Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show might have been better but if it was, it’s not by far. This could be the best run I’ve ever had and at 45 years old, ten years ago, you would think that was old. Now, the Stones are still killing it at 74 years old so as long as physically I can go and still basically look the part, I don’t really put any limits on age or anything like that. I can still go out there and have the best match of the show on any given night and I’m working with guys that are 10-15 years younger that don’t feel that.”
This is quite interesting as Jericho’s career is now something that is going month by month. It increases the likelihood that he could step away at any moment. With his band set to have an album released this upcoming year, it could mean that next year is it.
That said, Jericho has continued to voiced that he still has a passion to wrestle. Once that part dwindles away, that will be when he will be when he calls it a career. Whenever he does do that, Jericho has already cemented himself as one of the best to ever step in the ring.
