Chris Jericho appeared on The LAW Sunday night with Dan Lovranski and Jason Agnew to promote his new book ‘Undisputed, How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps’ as well as various other topics including discussions about a return this past January. We previously covered his thoughts on TNA’s 3/3/11 vignette, which he saw as a “busch league” attempt to generate buzz.
As for being contacted by WWE, this is what he had to say: “The original plan was for me to come back in January and then other things came up and other things were going on. There was no rush for me to come back I realized because the one good thing about me is that you can’t teach experience and I have 20-years of experience worldwide so I can come in whenever I want and still be – like when I left I think it was the best work of my career over the past three years and I left at the top of that still so I can still come back and make an impact at anytime.
“Then when these other things started happening and then The Rock came back, Triple H came back, The Undertaker, Booker T. and all these other guys are coming back, I don’t need to come back right now because if I was there who cares? The Rock is back, it doesn’t matter who else is on the show and then Triple H and The Undertaker are working together, so that’s going to eclipse everything else. It goes to show that those guys have been around just as long as I have, been gone longer than I have and come back and made a huge impact so I can wait in the weeds and pick and choose my time and that’s the beauty of it, I can call Vince and say this is when I want to come back or talk to him about it but there were discussions about it, absolutely, but ultimately they just didn’t transpire.”
