AEW wrestler and former WWE star Chris Jericho has recently spoken on Keepin it 100 with Konnan. On the show, Jericho talked about a variety of topics, including his thoughts on his former rival Roman Reigns’ current run as the Universal Champion.
Speaking on the show Chris Jericho had this to say:
“I haven’t [kept up] but I’ve been reading about it and it’s no surprise,” Jericho said. “When I was there in 2016 I worked with Roman basically all around the world. I was a heel, he was a babyface. It’s a no brainer there. You know what Roman is? I always said this and he’s doing it now, if you just drop the f**king script and just let him be him, he’s Cool Hand Luke man. He’s like the coolest cat. He’s a great guy. Just let him be him, and that’s what he’s doing now, obviously with a heelish slant, which is great. When he eventually turns babyface he’ll be even bigger than he is now, because he’s just a cool, cool guy. And now they’re letting him do all this stuff and it doesn’t surprise me that he’s killing it, because he’s that type of performer.”
Chris Jericho and Roman Reigns would have a brief feud over the United States Championship in 2017.
