Chris Jericho is one of the best WWE superstars the company has ever had, but there comes a time in every superstar's career, even for the greatest superstars, where they must consider retiring from the business.

Jericho is certainly at that age where retirement is on the cards, and the amount of involvement outside of wrestling which he has had over recent years with his band Fozzy, he could soon decide that he's had enough of competing inside the squared circle.

Y2J recently did an interview on The Ross Report, where he spoke about a number of different topics including his future in the WWE and if he would be retiring anytime soon.

Jericho said about retiring, according to Wrestling Inc: "No, I am not there; never. The last run I had in 2016 with Kevin Owens and the Festival of Friendship and all that stuff, it was one of my favorite runs, one of my top two favorite runs."

Jericho's alliance and feud with Kevin Owens was his last major storyline between the two in the WWE, with one of the highlights of the storyline being the Festival of Friendship, where The Prizefighter turned on The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla, beginning their WrestleMania feud.

"I enjoyed the Kevin Owens storyline so much. Once it ended, I knew that I needed to get away for a while because I knew there was nothing that can compare to that. It's good to step away and step aside for a bit, but when the time comes I am sure I will be back, but until then I am so busy that you will be seeing me all the time anyways."

Jericho is right in saying he needed to leave WWE after his storyline with Owens had finished, as it was one of the best storylines in the company at the time and it was going to be difficult for either superstar to top that feud with another superstar immediately.

Luckily for Owens, he went straight into a feud with one AJ Styles.

Y2J certainly showed during his last feud with Owens that he's still got it after all these years, so hopefully, he doesn't retire from the WWE anytime soon.
