Chris Jericho Talks About Life After WWE, Roman Reigns’ Suspension, Lesnar-UFC 200

– On the latest edition of Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho discusses the the longevity of his WWE career, Roman Reigns’ suspension and more. Here are the following highlights:

On his life after WWE and the longevity of his career:

“You look at my WWE activities since 2010 — and when I come back I’m not a part-time performer – but if you look at the overall schedule over the last six years, it’s part time. I’ll never be a full-time performer again and who knows how much longer I’ll do it for,” he said in an interview with For The Win. Ten years ago, I foresaw my own future and didn’t want to be at the mercy of the wrestling business. I wanted to come and go as I pleased and so I found ways to do that. Fozzy is bigger than it’s ever been before. I think the Jericho Network has the potential to be huge.”

“I’m 45 years old and pretty soon, I’m not going to want to take any more bumps. But if you look at the arc of entertainment, you can go until you’re 75 years old or beyond. There’s no limit to what you can accomplish in the world of entertainment. It’s all I’ve ever known since I was 19. I’m writing my fourth book, I’m doing more acting. I’m keeping all those balls in the air. It was a smart move on my part and I’m not going to stop. If I stopped wrestling tomorrow, I’d still be out there providing things for you guys to do to enjoy your lives.”

Jericho also offered his thoughts on Roman Reigns’ 30-day suspension:

“Reigns is a great guy and a great worker. That he was suspended shows there is no BS or (messing) around when it comes to the policy. There are things on (the banned list) that are not anywhere but on the WWE list. You see the things that happened 10, 15 years in the past that don’t happen anymore. You don’t see guys dying young,” Jericho said.

“Reigns is a cool cat. He’ll own it, come back and be a bigger star in the future. I’m a huge Reigns fan and continue to be.”

On Brock Lesnar fighting at UFC 200:

“I think it’s great. It’s awesome anytime you can get someone the mainstream spotlight. Brock is Brock. He could lose in 20 seconds and the next night he could beat the entire roster and he’d still be the most over guy in the company. … (Working with UFC) strengthens his position. There’s nothing to lose. It makes Brock a bigger star, and it makes WWE bigger. I know I’ll be watching.

I also don’t think Vince (McMahon) allowed him to do out of the goodness of his heart, either. I’m sure he’s going to get something back whether that’s Ronda Rousey or Conor McGregor or something.”

Bill Goldberg On If WWE Has Contacted Him About Returning, Lesnar’s UFC Bout, More

– Former WCW Superstar Bill Goldberg recently spoke with 411 Mania about a variety of topics including WWE 2K17, possibly returning to WWE and more. Here are the following highlights:

If WWE has contacted him about a return:

“WWE has not called me to be a part of any roster. My relationship with WWE stands with the video game and the video game only. If they want to extend an olive branch and pick up the phone, then I will make a comment on that once they do it. But prior to that, nothing’s been done.”

On if there’s been any Hall of Fame induction discussion with WWE:

“No sir. I have not had any contact with them on that front whatsoever.”

On Brock Lesnar fighting Mark Hunt at UFC 200:

“I’ve known Mark Hunt for a long time, and I’ve known Brock for a while. I think that it’s a very interesting match-up. I think it’s good on the UFC for making that match-up. I think it’s an exciting one. I think they both have advantages. At the end of the day, Brock’s got to get it to the ground. Period. End of story. Because he’s standing in front of a guy that throws shots that don’t want to put you to sleep, they want to put you in the ground. You get hit by one of those right hands or an uppercut or a left hook by Mark Hunt, then you know that **** is on and that cage is locked, and there’s nowhere to go. Conversely, Brock is one hell of a wrestler, and he’s a big monster. If he gets his hands on Hunt, there’s a myriad of things that he can do to him. His ground and pound is pretty damn strong, and obviously, we know about his wrestling ability. If he’s a smart kid, then he’s been working on his hands and working on his sparring. At the end of the day, when two combatants get into the ring and/or cage, it’s anybody’s game, especially in MMA. So it’s going to be a fight not to be missed. I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s a hell of a card at UFC 200. Obviously, as Brock’s friend, I want him to go out and kick some ass. I’ll be checking it out.”
