As former WWE superstar Chris Jericho prepares for his tour with Fozzie, the former world champion spoke about two of his fellow Canadian wrestlers Edge and Christian over the weekend. Jericho believes that Christian’s short title reign is just part of a larger storyline and he’s happy that Edge was able to walk away from wrestling without permanent damage. According to a Saturday report by Teh Daily Star, Jericho made the following comments:
“Look Edge had a serious neck injury – wrestling is showbusiness, but we’re taking the falls and taking the bumps all the time. I’m glad because by the sounds of things he got pretty lucky. Yes it was a shock, but he had a great career, and I’m pleased he’s not got a devastating injury – it looks like he got out of it just in time.”
Edge retired in late April after finding out that he was risking permanent damage and potential paralysis if he were to continue wrestling. Prior to WrestleMania 27 on April 3rd, Edge had been experiencing numbness in his arms. After WM 27, Edge was thoroughly examined and the doctors discovered the magnitude of his injury. Edge was forced to medically retire to prevent any further damage. His last official match was WM 27 against Alberto Del Rio.
As for Christian, Jericho has publicly commented on Christian’s short title reign numerous times especially when it first happened in the beginning of May. Jericho’s comments to The Daily Star were pretty much along the same lines as he’s been saying all along:
“I didn’t watch it but I heard about it, look, it’s probably part of a storyline. People want all the answers and it’s not not supposed to be like that, it makes it fun to not know the full story. When I go see Pirates of the Caribbean I don’t want to know the ending. I’m sure there’s some sort of plan.”
I’m not buying this part of a larger storyline theory. It’s been almost 2 months since Christian won and loss the world title. And since then, he’s suffered two more losses to Randy Orton at two separate PPVs. His heel turn has been entertaining but his constant losing to Orton has set him back further than before he won the world title. As of now, this “bigger storyline” hasn’t done much for Christian’s career and his fans. For more on Jericho’s interview with The Daily Star, click here.
