Chris Jericho was recently interviewed on the Other Guys Podcast in which he discussed Kevin Owen’s attack on him during the Festival of Friendship as being the crowning jewel of his WWE career. Below are the highlights:
On Owens attacking him during the Festival of Friendship: “I had that idea months earlier, to do a big spectacle with dancing girls and the whole thing, and then it was constantly being changed. Even the day of the show it was changed and I didn’t like it and I knew my way was better. I stood up for it, even to the point of calling Vince when he was on a plane in the middle of the air and pitching my case, not taking no for an answer, not allowing my vision to be changed.”
On his inspiration for the segment: “The Red Wedding from Game Of Thrones was something that was really resonating, where you have this brilliant, beautiful and fun moment and then it just goes south in such a quick fashion where you can’t believe it. That, to me, was the brilliance of it.”
On the moment being one of his favorites: “It was definitely one of my favorite things that I’ve done, maybe even the crowning jewel of what I’ve done in all these years being in the WWE,” he said.
