Source: WrestlingVoiceRadio.comChris Jericho was the guest on this week's Wrestling Voice Radio Show. He spoke about his band Fozzy, the progress on their next album, their upcoming European tour and much more. Here are some highlights below.
On wrestlers stealing his moves and gimmicks in WWE today and lashing out at CM Punk for doing so: "There seems to be a lack of respect for the forefathers who came in and did it first and it's not just [CM] Punk, it's a whole litany of guys from Miz to Cody Rhodes to Mason Ryan to Sin Cara to Kelly Kelly, everybody is stealing moves, looks, ideas. Brian Pillman once told me if you want to make it in wrestling you have to do something that nobody has done before and nobody is doing that and they are coming off as second rate copies of Chris Jericho and that's maybe why these guys aren't striking and I watch it and think, 'Seriously, again?'
"A couple of years ago you had 'Miz 4, John Cena 0', where did that come from? Conspiracy Theory, where did that come from? Best in the World, where did that come from? Wearing suits, talking slow, using big words, using certain moves, you know Miz used the word 'troglodyte' a few weeks ago and I'm like seriously? If there ever was a word associated with Chris Jericho that would be it.
"These guys have to start thinking of their own stuff and some times I see some of them and I'm like oh come on. It's not like it's influenced. At least give credit where credit is due.
In response to Vampiro calling him out and labeling him a liar in a recent video: "It's funny because I just recently complimenting him on the documentary they put out about him, but Vampiro joins the long list of guys like Superstar Billy Graham, Larry Zbyszko, Scott Hall who don't like it when they are called out for being dicks at certain point in time and everything I've written in each one of my books is true."
Chris also talks about his ideal wrestling match, his ultimate tour line-up, if he would wrestle in Japan again, his favorite lyrics and more. You can listen to it by clicking here.
