He's been a WWE superstar since the year of 1999, so Chris Jericho has seen wrestlers come and go from the locker room for nearly 20 years.

Despite not being a full-time superstar anymore, you can imagine Jericho commands the utmost respect from his peers, simply because of the way he conducts himself and his in-ring accomplishments.

And at the age of 47, Y2J is taking his career to new heights - he's now the Intercontinental Champion in New Japan Pro Wrestling, and put on his first-ever five-star rated match against Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom.

He probably doesn't have long left in the squared circle, but has various other things to fall back on such as his rock band Fozzy and his widely-successful podcast - Talk Is Jericho.

Whilst on the 'Jericho Cruise' that Y2J set up to involve a host of top independent superstars, along with current WWE star Rey Mysterio, Jericho recorded a special episode of his podcast alongside the likes of Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega.

And the two former WWE stars reminisced on a moment backstage when talking about locker room leaders - where talk shifted to none-other than CM Punk.

The year wasn't stated, but Jericho began to tell a story of how Punk and Hall of Famer Booker T were embroiled in a hilarious locker room incident.

Rhodes revealed that Punk thought of himself as a locker room leader, and told all superstars to pick up their trash from the floor.

CM Punk's revelation that he saw himself as a locker room leader drew ire from Booker T.

Evidently, this didn't go down well at all with the five-time World champion Booker T.

Cody continued to explain that Booker hilariously threw all of the trash he had on the floor, and they had an 'interaction', and impersonated him by repeating him saying 'He's not telling me to pick up my trash,' but no more details were given after that.

Booker T didn't take kindly to Punk's claims, and threw his trash on the floor when he heard what Punk had to say.

It does sound hilarious though, and judging from when all were active superstars, this may have happened sometime in 2012, whilst Punk was in the middle of his 434-day reign as WWE Champion.

Both Rhodes and Y2J agreed on Kane being the only locker room leader at the time, with Jericho stating that if the Big Red Machine asked him to do what Punk asked he would do it without a shadow of a doubt, but wouldn't listen to Punk.

Considering the man is nearly seven-feet tall - we don't blame you, Chris.
