In his latest edition of “Talk is Jericho,” WWE superstar Chris Jericho discussed his latest run with the company, some of his favorite matches during that span and who he was originally slated to face at the “Night of Champions” pay-per-view.

His match with Randy Orton at “Night of Champions.”

I had a great match with Randy Orton. I really feel that the last couple of weeks between the Steel Cage match with Bray Wyatt and the “Night of Champions” match with Randy Orton were two of my best matches on this run coming back. It’s always nice to steal the show and we did steal the show.

We had a really cool, great chemistry. I love how he works. He’s such a careful worker. His timing is immaculate. His selling is great. He’s very over. He has a lot of moves that are over so it really makes a big difference to be in the ring with a pro like that. It [the match] had a great finish and I really enjoyed it.

His original “Night of Champions” opponent

Originally I was supposed to work Seth Rollins at “Night of Champions.” Vince [McMahon] changed it to Randy Orton.

The stigma of him returning to only put over younger talent

If I had it my way, I’d win every night. Trust me. I do what my boss tells me to do.

I’m paid by Vince McMahon to do a service for him. He tells me what he wants me to do for that service.

Bray Wyatt

Working with Wyatt was a really, really cool feud for me. He’s a great performer who really knows his character. He knows exactly what he’s doing in the ring. It’s something different and unique and that’s why he’s getting over so well.

How much he loved his last run

If we didn’t have this Fozzy tour, I would have gone back for another three months. That’s how much fun I was having.

Jericho also noted that he loved working with both Rollins and Luke Harper. He then put over NXT talent like Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and Tyler Breeze and how they could be on their way up to the main roster.

Editor’s Note

Come back soon, Y2J. It wasn’t his best run, but he still managed to accomplish a lot in a very short span.
