Cheeseburger Talks Friendship With Chris Jericho, Jushin Liger

Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio recently interviewed Cheeseburger of ROH. You can see highlights below, and the full interview above. 

Being granted the Palm Strike finish from Jushin Thunder Liger:
"Liger is my favorite wrestler of all time. He's what I aspire to be as a professional wrestler. He is the guy I look to as what a professional wrestler is. Just look at his career accomplishments and all the stuff he's done. He's still doing it, he's like over 50 and still doing it at a high level. It is an honor to spend time with him and learn from him and have him pass down his Palm Strike to me."

Chris Jericho taking a shine to him:
"Oh, Jericho's awesome! (laughs) It is funny how things turn out. I started getting a ton of notifications on Twitter. Jericho was at home and Ring of Honor happened to be on. I think he saw the match with me and Bob Evans from Toronto in Ring of Honor. He didn't know who I was but he tweeted about liking this Cheeseburger guy or "This Cheeseburger guy is my new favorite wrestler." People started tagging me in the post! All of a sudden, my Twitter was blowing up. People were texting me saying, "Go to Twitter! Jericho's taking about you!" I was like, "What?" (laughs) I sent him a message thanking him for the shout out. He invited me on his podcast and we actually did a Talk is Jericho show together."


Catching up with Jericho at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom:
"That was cool. I hadn't seen him, I think, since the podcast. So, it had been like 2 years since I had seen him? We got the chance to sit down and talk. Another thing, he posted a video asking his kids who their favorite wrestler is and they said "Cheeseburger!" I think Ring of Honor even sent his kids some T shirts! (laughs)"
