Chris Jericho appeared as a guest on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, discussing his career and dealing with ongoing criticism. As a great wrestler on the big stage for years, Jericho stressed he has numerous critics. Despite this, he often chooses not to focus on such comments, preferring to stay focused on his journey.


"If I died tomorrow, everyone would say I’m one of the greatest of all time, I think because I’m still here, still doing it at the highest of levels, there’s a lot of people online that just hate that. So if Chris Jericho says the sky is blue, I’m an asshole because this guy says it’s obviously red. So you deal with that. Like, there’s a lot of Chris Jericho haters right now. It’s kind of in vogue to hate Chris Jericho, for whatever reason. And once again, I’ve never cared. I mean, sometimes it gets to you, but I only judge myself."- Chris Jericho said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Chris Jericho on his career

Chris Jericho is a man with a great career and great successes behind him. When you make such a career, it is certain that you have a built-up self-confidence. Looking at his past and current matches, we can't help but say that Jericho is truly one of the greatest in the wrestling scene. When he feels that he is no longer at his peak, Jericho is ready to end his career.

"Am I still able to have the best match on the show on any given night? Yes. Not every night. But on any given night, am I still doing entertaining segments and having great matches and thinking of ideas and building the company and helping build others? Yes. When that starts disappearing, then I’ll reevaluate. But for now. I mean, dude, I don’t know, at the risk of not sounding humble. I don’t know who’s had a longer career than I’ve had with as much diversity, evolution reinvention. And actually, just the opponents that I’ve had. I mean, I don’t think there’s anybody in the history of the business who has worked almost everybody. I worked Dick Murdoch. And I worked with Takeshita. I worked with just like anybody in between that kind of falls in there. You name somebody of top value from the last, let’s say, the mid-80s till now, and I’ve worked with 99% of them.”
