Chris Jericho did an interview with the Tampa Bay Times where he spoke about a wide range of topics including his decision to jump to AEW and how that impacts his legacy in WWE.

According to the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion, he thinks WWE will never mention his name because he jumped to the rival promotion.

"They'll probably never mention me again," Jericho said. "I don't blame them. Why would they promote me in any way, shape or form, when I'm the head of this opposing army, in their opinion, that's stealing money out of their pockets?"

Jericho would then talk about how he can come off as being hard to work with if people are used to working with talent who just want to get along. However, he wants to get the job done right and to put on the best possible program even if it’s at the risk of hurting people's feelings.

"[Still,] I earned Vince's trust. And it takes a long time to get his real trust: moneymaking trust. He's never told me this, but indirectly, I think he regrets losing me, because I was one of his generals. I'm not always right, but f--k if I'm not close 80 percent of the time."

Jericho continued by noting how he thinks he will never get into the WWE Hall of Fame if he continues to work for the Khan family in AEW.

"If I continue to work for the Khan family for the rest of my life, I'll never go into the WWE Hall of Fame," Jericho said. "Does that bother me? No. I mean, the Sex Pistols didn't show up for theirs. I always kind of liked that.”

Despite potentially never getting the actual accolade, he’s okay with that because he’s a hall of famer in the minds of the people who want him in the honorary class. To him as long as he’s a hall of famer in his mind then that’s all that matters.

Jericho also talked about his Judas Effect finisher and more. You can read the entire interview here.
