Chris Jericho: If I Never Wrestled Again, It Wouldn't Bother Me

Chris Jericho sounds content with his career.

Jericho has been everywhere in 2018, appearing on WWE television, wrestling at NJPW's biggest show, showing up at All In, and holding a Rock N Wrestling cruise this weekend. One place Jericho was not at was SmackDown 1000 last week. Jericho took to Twitter to reveal that no one had asked him to be part of the event.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, Jericho said that even if he was asked, he's not sure he would have gone.

"They didn't ask me to go, and to be honest with you, I didn't really want to do Raw 25 either. I don't like wasting a surprise appearance, I don't like wasting those appearances on one-offs," said Jericho. "I know how those shows go, there are so many guys on the show, I don't want to do it. So, nobody asked me, but if that had I probably wouldn't have done it anyway. That's why when you saw me at Raw 25 it was just a backstage bit and that's the way that Vince and I discussed it to be. I didn't want to go out in front of the crowd, because you're wasting one of those cash-in chips of a Jericho appearance, so to speak."

Jericho went on to confirm that he would not be appearing at WWE Crown Jewel on Nov. 2. Not only does Jericho have a NJPW commitment on Nov. 3 -- making it nearly impossible for him to be at both shows given the travel and time difference -- but Jericho recently shared a horror story of when he went to Saudi Arabia in April.

While Jericho won't be at Crown Jewel, it doesn't mean he won't be back on WWE television at some point in the future. It will just take the right story to bring him back into the mix.

"But yeah, of course, I would consider going back to the WWE, but once again, all of the things that we've talked about, it's a whole different Chris Jericho now than I was the last time I was there, which is a whole different Chris Jericho to the last time I was there before that," said Jericho. "So we'd have to work out some ideas and things and there's a lot of money going around now in WWE, so that's a whole different world too. So, the answer is yes. But I'm in no rush and I don't feel like I have to do it. If I never went back to WWE again it wouldn't bother me, just like if I never went back to New Japan, if I never wrestled again, period. But if it's something that's right and it feels the right thing to do then, of course, I would consider it."

Jericho also addressed the rumors that he would be appearing at IMPACT Wrestling's Bound For Glory due to his friendship with Don Callis. In typical Jericho fashion, he played coy and left things up in the air.

"I think you know me well enough to know there's always a chance, I have no restrictions on anything that I'm doing, and you know me well enough to know that if it was going to happen I damn well wouldn't tell you," he said. "I think it's just one of those things where you'll have to wait and see. I don't have any restrictions or any real plans at all. I just kind of do things as they come which is why this year has been... and I'm sure next year will be more of the same so let's see what happens."

Following the Rock N Wrestling Cruise, Jericho will wrestle EVIL at NJPW Power Struggle on Nov. 3.

It was recently reported that Jericho was in talks to start a wrestling company with Jim Ross. Jericho quickly laughed off the report.
