Chris Jericho is off WWE TV for a while but he is still keeping busy. He was interviewed on "Q with Tom Power" for CBC Radio to promote his new book, "No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life." The book, available on and all major bookstores, shares "20 of his most valuable lessons for achieving your goals and living the life you want, jam-packed with fantastic stories and the classic off-the-wall, laugh-out-loud Jericho references he's famous for"

Power said that his favorite chapter in the book is about Vince McMahon. Jericho talked about McMahon being able to build a brand that is a mainstay in pop culture. He doesn't think that McMahon will ever write a book but you can get McMahon stories in his book.

Here is the story told about McMahon during his interview:

"There's nothing that he would ask you to do that he wouldn't do himself. A great example is we were in Orlando doing a show, I had to do press in New York early in the morning. He had me come on his private jet, we flew back from Orlando to New York, had some drinks, listened to some tunes, had a great time, landed at 4:30, both drunk. He goes, 'What are you doing?' [I say] I'm going home to pass out because I had to get up at 6:30 for press. He goes, 'I'm going to the gym, come with me.' I'm like, 'I'm not going to the gym at 4:30, what's wrong with you?' He's like, 'I have to go to work.' [I say] 'So do I.' I get a text when I wake up the next morning at 6:30, super-hungover [and] feeling like crap, from my 72-year-old boss who's like bench-pressing 275 pounds giving me the finger and this is 6 in the morning or whatever. That's him, he just works, and it rubs off on you."

Jericho said that's why you get guys like The Rock, John Cena, Batista and himself who are doing so much more than they thought they could. Jericho talked about The Rock's work ethic and it's because of who his boss was.

It's a good interview. Jericho also revealed that he filmed an episode of America's Funniest Videos (he was supposed to be the host but then the job was given to someone else) a couple of years ago but it never aired. He said that there's actually an episode out there somewhere of that show with him hosting it in front of the crowd.
