'Y2J' is living the life.
Back in January, former 9-time WWE Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho appeared in both NJPW and WWE. Now, Jericho is touring the world with his band 'Fozzy' and he's enjoying having the freedom of doing as he pleases. Ahead of a performance later this month, Jericho spoke with the Milwaukee Magazine and elaborated on the feeling of being free from a fully-contracted gig.
"I don’t do things for money anymore. I do it because I like to do it, it’s a good place man; to do whatever I want to do and to enjoy all these different projects and make sure that fans can continue to get a lot of excitement out of what I do. It’s very important for me to make sure people can never pin down what Jericho is going to do next." Jericho says.
Over the past few months, Chris Jericho has been heavily promoting his "Rock N'Wrestling Rager at Sea" cruise which will take place in October of this year. Jericho has put together quite the talent roster for the cruise with names like Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Jim Ross and many others who will be a part of the festivities on the cruise. It may have seemed impossible to pull off, but Jericho's master plan is nearing its commencement.
"Fozzy played the KISS Kruise a couple years ago and the moment I got off the boat I knew I wanted to do my own rock and wrestling cruise. It took me two years to get it up and running, but it’s really exciting." Jericho stated. "It’s a big gamble and there’s a lot at stake, but we’re on a solid pace and if all goes well we’ll get ready for number two next year. I want it to be an annual destination vacation for anyone that appreciates and enjoys what I enjoy, which is wrestling and podcasts, paranormal, comedy, great rock shows and everything in between."
