Chris Jericho Opens Up On Getting Removed From The Undertaker Match At WWE Greatest Royal Rumble

Quote:
WWE originally announced that Rusev would wrestle The Undertaker in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. Then it was announced that Chris Jericho would wrestle Taker at the event. Fast forward to earlier this week, WWE revealed that Rusev vs. Taker at the show was back on.

Jericho was recently a guest on CBS Sports’ “In This Corner” podcast. During the interview, he spoke about being removed from the match. Here is what he had to say:

“For me, at this point, whether they want me to be part of the Royal Rumble or work against Undertaker or work against Funaki in a Lingerie Match, whatever they want me to do there I will. That’s the good thing about my legacy and where I am at this point of my career. I can be the opening match or the main event, whatever it is, it’s going to be good. Things changed, which is part of the world of WWE, happens all the time.

“For me, until I actually walk into the ring, sometimes you never know what is going to happen. Things get changed during the show sometimes. I think fans sometimes get a little to excited about certain things that happened and didn’t happen.”
IMO Chris Jericho is one of top 10 smartest persons that has ever been in this business and in top 3 in terms of smart wrestlers.

A diplomatic answer, which nobody should be surprised about, to a stupid decision. I don't mean the decision to not have Jericho wrestle Undertaker, that's fine, but it just goes to show what a disorganized clusterfuck of a company this is. You're promoting a match, and not just any match, which would be bad enough, but an Undertaker match, and you can't figure out who you want him to wrestle? First it was Rusev, then it was Jericho, then it was Rusev again. Is it gonna be Jericho again 2 days before the show? For fucks sake. Vince needs to be out of power.

Jericho, excitement is the reaction to the promotion and hype the company & you the performers presents for a marque match...so yeah the fans get excited when they are being sold on a special attraction by you.

Would rather Jericho v Orton in a lingerie match. Why not make this match for Saudi anyway, just a normal 1v1 match? How many times have these two been in 1v1 matches? Surely less than HHH v Cena? Itís almost as big a match imo..

Edit think RKO/Y2J have 8 1-1ís to HHH/Cenaís 6. Strange I recall so many of the latter but never the former.

TBH, Iíd prefer Taker vs Rusev. Itís a match we havenít really seen before, whereas weíve seen Undertaker vs Jericho probably over ten times now.

not really much to talk about, he basically doesn't care that he got taken out.

just a very diplomatic and neutral answer, not much more to say that that.

Jericho clearly just a laid back guy who doesn't feel the need to lose his mind over the things that ultimately don't matter in life
