Chris Jericho recently spoke with Still Real to Us and below are some interview highlights:

On when he learned of his match against The Undertaker at Greatest Royal Rumble:

“3 days ago” as he laughed and continued, “I mean that’s kinda how it is when you work in WWE and the wrestling business. The entertainment is all — you learn to roll with the punches and sometimes things that are planned for six-months fall apart. Sometimes things that you never expect to happen with a week’s notice.”

“So I’m excited about it, I think it’s going to be fun,” Jericho continued regarding his upcoming Casket Match with The Undertaker. “I’m the King Of The Casket Match, I’m undefeated in a Casket Match and to go to Saudi Arabia for it, it’s a pretty interesting setting […] and I think and we’re going to have a great time and there’s an opportunity of a big financial commitment on both ends from the WWE and the Saudi Arabian government. So hopefully it’s a long and fruitful relationship for years to come.”

On possibly working a match at SummerSlam this year:

“No man, I don’t work that way as you can see just dropping in. If I’m going to work something it needs to be something special.” He said appearing on the Greatest Royal Rumble wasn’t considered a pay-per-view match to him and more like a “giant live event or a giant house show as we used to call them. So yeah, I think that there’s a lot of options for things that I could do but [Fozzy] is going back on tour at the end of August anyway so you’ll see that there’s really not much time to do that.”

On his current NJPW status:

“Yeah you know it was a good idea. It was good when it happened — we had a blast but sometimes things just don’t work out. You know, so New Japan was a lot of fun… not to say that I wouldn’t go back there again but as of right now our relationship is pretty much finished at this point.”
