With his early WWE return next month pending, Chris Jericho decided to allow the fans to "ask him anything" on Reddit last night, and some of his answers were quite surprising.
The former world champion was first asked about Bray Wyatt's future and if he thinks WWE has dropped the ball with him somewhat, with the rumours that the Wyatts are breaking up and that Luke Harper is set to go solo, as well as the fact that The Wyatts haven't wrestled on Raw now in weeks.
Jericho obviously knows the eater of worlds well after their storied feud, which Jericho managed to get the better of Bray on numerous occasions, Jericho responded with:
"Bray will be a world champion within a year." Bold prediction from the first ever Undisputed WWE Champion.
The question that seems to be on everyones lips lately, is whether or not WWE was better in the Attitude Era or better now, Dean Ambrose made comments about this earlier in the week and now Jericho was asked the same question.
He was asked if he thought the wrestling business was better off now (PG, concussion awareness, no blood, etc) or during the peak Monday Night War era (better creatively, more jobs with three companies, worse medical checks in place, etc)?
Jericho said he thought the business was better now, which makes sense because there is a lot more awareness for injuries and the rules right now, because back in the late 90s early 2000s people were taking chair shots to the head and not realising the long term damage they were causing. Thankfully there are now rules preventing this and wrestling as a whole seems like a safer place to be.
Shockingly one fan actually asked Jericho when he thought Chris Beniot would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, probably unsurprisingly Jericho said "never." This echo's what a lot of talent and the WWE Universe think of the whole situation, but its good to see that Jericho responded to the question and didn't just blank over it.
As mentioned above, Jericho is set to return, just over a month after he left at Night of Champions to continue an on-going feud with Randy Orton during WWE's European Tour next month. This is the final time WWE will come to the UK in 2014 and it promises to be epic.
