Chris Jericho has been wrestling for decades. He was a champion pretty much wherever he went during his career and he attributes it to putting in work, specifically on the road. He doesn’t see much point in being a part-timer like Brock Lesnar, or even the Undertaker if you take these comments at face value. Here’s what he said via lordsofpain.net.
No, I won’t do it because that’s not the way it should be. When you’re there, you should go on the road. That’s how you help guys to learn. That’s how I got better. This whole year I got way better because of working with the younger guys, who then were learning from me as well. They need that. And it was a great year with just an awesome locker room, great people, lots of fun. I had as much fun out of the ring as I did in the ring. And in 2015, all I did was live events. I didn’t do TV at all. It’s like the anti-type Brock Lesnar. I wouldn’t have a problem doing that either. Maybe I’ll never go back on TV again. Maybe I’ll just do live events.
It’s hard to argue with his comments.
