Chris Jericho is currently enjoying his best run with WWE as he and Kevin Owens continue to provide comedy gold every week on Monday Night Raw.

It's by popular belief that Y2J is currently doing his best work for the company ever since becoming just a part-time wrestler.

Due to his musical duties, Jericho is no longer considered a full-time talent for WWE, with tours and albums taking up a lot of his time, but this run has been completely different for the veteran.

How it usually worked for Jericho was that he would come back and help a new talent get over with the WWE Universe. He tried it with Fandango a few years ago. Yeah, let's just forget that ever happened.

At first, it looked like that was going to be the same again this time around. Jericho's first feud when he returned to WWE was with AJ Styles, a new superstar on the roster.

However, after finishing that feud, WWE and Y2J struck comedy gold with his promo work alongside Dean Ambrose, and now his work with Kevin Owens.

Whether it's a plant pot, a scarf, a list, a key, a stupid idiot, or anything for that matter, Jericho can get it over.

His recent work alongside the Universal Champion has seen his contract with WWE almost be forgotten about. In fact, he has recently admitted in an interview that he's now working on a rolling deal because of the popularity of his current gimmick.

Speaking to "The LAW: Live Audio Wrestling", Jericho admitted that his run with WWE was never meant to last this long, and he revealed all about how he's currently being treated by officials and when his run was actually meant to end.

He said: "I will tell you this, my original plan when I came back last January was to stay until WrestleMania, four months.

"Then, it started going so good, I re-signed I think until July and then I re-signed until October and then I re-signed until November. Now it's basically a month by month thing. I've got a certain time frame in mind but I can't even say that because what was supposed to be four has already been ten because I am smart enough to know this.

"I've been doing this for a long time and to have - like you said, this could be my best run, I still think my 2008 Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show might have been better but if it was, it's not by far. This could be the best run I've ever had and at 45 years old, ten years ago, you would think that was old.

"Now, the Stones are still killing it at 74 years old so as long as physically I can go and still basically look the part, I don't really put any limits on age or anything like that.

"I can still go out there and have the best match of the show on any given night and I'm working with guys that are 10-15 years younger that don't feel that.

"Right now, in the WWE, I'm enjoying this run as much as I had anything in my entire career and I'm going to enjoy it as long as I can and continue to build it and continue to entertain for as long as I can in the WWE, for sure."
