WWE Superstar Chris Jericho recently spoke with The Tampa Tribune about various topics that include’s being more than a wrestler and his Comedy Central YouTube Series. Here are the highlights.
On being more than a wrestler: “When I was a kid, I wanted to be a wrestler and a rock star,” said Jericho, 44, who has lived in the Tampa Bay area more than 20 years. “I didn’t see a reason I had to choose just one. I still don’t. And here I am succeeding in both, and then some. I want to prove I can do it all in entertainment.”
On how he got his Comedy Central web series: “Word got out about what I was doing, and Comedy Central called me and said they had a series for me. So I quit my job at the car wash to go off and become a Hollywood star. I think I have a great comedic sensibility. I’m getting opportunities to showcase it. That’s all I need.”
