– Chris Jericho recently spoke with WWE.com about Triple H’s promo on RAW where he referred to Jericho, Rob Van Dam and Edge as talented stars who were never “the guy” for the company. Jericho said:
“That’s his opinion, and as somebody that was a six-time World Champion and main evented pay-per-views for years, was I ever the guy? Well, no, but who was? I think if you look over the last 15 years in WWE, you’ve got Rock, Austin, Hogan and Cena. I wasn’t the guy… I just know that I had great matches pretty much every night. I had great rapport with the fans. I could make them love me or hate me depending on what I wanted, so I don’t know what more you can say.”
Jericho mentioned that he wasn’t angry with Triple H, but both Triple H and himself were “always the guys who worked with the guy.” He also mentioned that while he believes that Triple H is one of the greatest of all time, he could match him in every area.
