Chris Jericho Defends The Rock Embarrassing WWE Stars With His Promo Ability

Arda Ocal of The Score Television Network and Right After Wrestling sat in studio with the author of “Undisputed”, Chris Jericho. Highlights:

– On the emotions within the pages of ‘Undisputed’, particularly writing about the passing of his mother [1:00]

- How it was trying to please Vince McMahon as a performer, the “audience of one” as he refers to it in “Undisputed” [1:53]

– After making it in pro wrestling, having to pay his dues all over again as the lead singer of Fozzy [3:09]

– The similarities of being a performer in professional wrestling and being the frontman while playing in his band [5:35]

– Is Chris Jericho approachable to fans? [8:02]

– What is his “winning the Intercontinental title” goal for Fozzy and his acting career? [9:30]

Jericho on The Rock’s return: “It’s unfair to say ‘The Rock came back and he embarrassed everyone and he blew everyone outta the water’ – he always did! The only difference is in The Rock’s time, he has Austin, Foley, Jericho – there were guys that could hang at that level – some of the best promo guys of all time. It’s not that guys like Cena or Miz can’t hang at The Rock’s level, it just that he (The Rock) is so far above everybody else – he always has been…as a promo man, The Rock is the best of all time!”

    No no……….it really is that Miz and Cena and most of the other chumps that WWE pushes now adays, REALLY just aren’t anywhere close to the Rock’s level. Quit being nice Jericho.

    MIKARB,you’re a tard.

  • watch Cena’s farewell and judge his mic skills, i genuinly thought he was gone from Raw n headin to SD

  • mark

    I agree with the Rock being the best at promos. But pg rating forces Cena to direct promos to the kids. Im sure if they let him loose and he could say anything he wants, he would get better.


    Cena Promos are only for the kids

    @ Dave. My thoughts exactly. Jericho is one of those heels that you loved hating him. You watched him wrestle because you wanted see him get his ass kicked.(Unlike Cole, who people genuinely hate and just want to see gone). And as far as him being gone goes, when he left the WWE took a major blow in the Promo area. I believe that If one can cut a helluva promo then they could easily spike the ratings on words alone.

    I aint sayin… ‘m just sayin…

    I have to agree with Jericho, not just with the fact that The Rock is the best of all time, but that when he was around there were actually guys that could lift a candle to him. Guys like Stone Cold, Jericho himself, Foley, HHH, etc. Now it’s Cena and Miz. They just sound bad compared to Rock. Not that they are horrible on the mic compared to the other wrestlers, but compared to Rock they are. This is why guys like Jericho and HHH need to stick around for awhile and show these guys how to perform. I already miss Jericho on the mic. He kick ass whether he is a face or heel.
