Chris Jericho did an interview today with the Boston Herald. As we noted before, Chris declined to be a part of this year’s WrestleMania. He confirmed that in the interview with the Herald. His exact quote was: “I’m not a part of it and I won’t be a part of it”. He also noted that he’s not always pleased with what WWE does for him creatively and that Fandango was not his first choice for an opponent at last year’s show. Jericho talks about CM Punk and much more. You can read the interview by clicking here.
