Chris Jericho Reveals Who Is The Most Underrated Wrestler

Top AEW Star “Le Champion” Chris Jericho has not only become successful in the wrestling business but he has also had an amazing career in the music industry.

Jericho’s band, Fozzy, has not only released seven studio albums, but they have also toured all over the world. Jericho, having a career in music, and being part of the music industry, has allowed him to attend huge events such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.

While speaking on The Hollywood Raw Podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, Chris talked about his funny but awkward encounter with none other than music icon Sir Paul McCartney.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“We’re at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Ringo was getting inducted by Paul. And my cousin and I had a contact that allowed us to stand on the floor of the arena where only the inductees are, but we didn’t have a ticket because it’s $10,000 for a seat to sit on the floor.” “So, you can’t stand here, so then you go stand here, and then someone says you can’t stand here.

Anyways, we found out… We could see where Paul and Ringo were at the front. When everyone was standing up watching Green Day play, my cousin and I just walked through the entire crowd using the only rule that you need to have, which is just act like you’re supposed to be there. Right?”

“We ended up standing right behind Paul and Ringo. And then when the show was done, Green Day was done, Paul started walking. So, I started walking kind of almost beside him, by this row of chairs, till we finally just meet at the peak. ‘Oh, my goodness, what a coincidence! Hey Paul, Green Day was great.

They’re awesome. They’re great.’ I was like, I didn’t know what to say, but I said, ‘Listen, I see you have your security guard leading you, but you’ve got no one behind you, so if any ninjas come, I got your back.’”

“I’m like, what am I… The ninjas?”

Jericho then talked about his awkward encounter with Sir Paul McCartney continuing in an after party.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“All right. Yeah, and then I go, ‘High five, Paul.’ He gives me a high five, so I’m just jumping. Later we go to the after-party and he’s eating with Joe Walsh. We went to the Copa, me, Joe Walsh and Paul McCartney, man. So, he’s eating this spread, he’s eating some cheese, and all these people are gathered around. I’m like,

I’m going to go try and help him out.” “I go, I say, ‘Paul, listen these people are bugging you; I’ll help you out.’ He goes, “Listen?” He goes, ‘Who are you?’ He goes, ‘Who are you, man?’ He goes, ‘Are you a cameraman or are you a security guard? Who are you?’ I go, ‘I’m just trying to help you out.’”

“He goes, ‘Listen, if any ninjas come around, I’ll let you know. Until then…” Just like I’ll see you later, leave me alone type thing, and he walked away. And the only thing I could think of was like, he remembered the ninjas. He knows who I am.”

Chris Jericho then talked about who for him is the smelliest wrestler.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“I don’t know. I remember Kane’s glove always used to smell really sweaty and he used to put Febreze on it, so it smelled like putting cologne on a corpse sort of thing. But just his glove though, not the rest, just his glove.”

Chris Jericho then talked about who for him is the most underrated wrestler he ever locked up with.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“Let’s see. Who’s the most underrated wrestler? Oh man, those are hard. What pops into your head, it’s hard. There’s a guy called 2 Cold Scorpio who was really good that I don’t think gets the credit for how good he is. There are probably a million others too, but that’s the first who comes to mind.”

Chris Jericho then talked about what for him are the best signs he has ever seen in the crowd.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“The best sign that I ever saw was when I was a bad guy and it said, Chris Jericho is STU, and then they ran out of room, PID. I was like, dude, come on. Chris Jericho is… You’re too f***ing stupid, sorry, to even space it out properly to say, Chris Jericho is… Write the letter smaller.” “If you mess it up, rip it up and do it again. You’re really losing your point here; Chris Jericho is stupid.”

“The other one that I always love is when I was in about the summer of 2002, I was working with Hulk Hogan. It was his last run in the WWE and we were doing all the live events non-televised. He was the good guy, I was the bad guy, and had so much fun. People just love Hogan and people just hated me.

I remember one kid in the crowd had a sign that said Hulk Hogan is a Jedi. It was right around when the second of the new Star Wars movies came out, maybe Attack of the Clones. That just really bothered me. I remember I cut a whole promo on this kid who wrote the sign that Hulk Hogan was a Jedi, and how dare you compare the brilliance of a Jedi with the dumpster fire that’s Hulk Hogan.”

“Then, at the end of the match, we ended up fighting ringside. And the kid who wrote it, Hogan held my arms behind me, he goes, ‘Hit him, kid.’ And I’m like, okay, what’s this kid going to do? Whatever. This kid, he’s probably eight years old balls up his fist and punched me in the face as hard as he could, and it really hurt.

“I was like, ‘Hulk, come on, man.’ He’s like, ‘Sorry, brother. I thought he would just give you a slap or whatever.’ I’m like, ‘Geez, Louise. If you were such a Jedi, why don’t you use mind control and tell him not to punch me in the face, Mr. Jedi?”
