Chris Jericho spoke to Bay News 9 in his hometown of Tampa about his SyFy series, Robot Combat League. Here are some highlights from the interview:
If he runs into Hulk Hogan, who also lives in Tampa: "No, I actually run into the Incredible Hulk once in awhile - the big green guy. He chases me down the block sometimes, but I haven't seen Hulk Hogan in years."
If he has a dream match: "I really don't think that way. I've kind of done everything that I've ever wanted to do in wrestling and kind of worked with everybody, from the biggest of the big to the smallest of the small. I go back to wrestling when I have time available because I still love it and it's fun for me. I'd work with anybody. To me, I just enjoy doing a lot of different things and that's the way it should be at this point in time, especially after 22 years of being in wrestling. You can't just keep all of your eggs in that basket. Over the years I've kind of drifted away from that world.
"It gives me the chance to do other cool things, like Robot Combat League, which was an amazing project to be involved with that came across my desk and was so interesting and so unique. It's something, like, you hear about an 8-foot-tall giant robot fighting show and it's like, 'how can I not want to be involved with that?' So it blew my mind, actually, just the technology and how far advanced it was to have this show - the fact that it even existed and the fact that the robots move as fast as they do and fight as hard as they do and are as cool as they are."
Jericho also discussed Robot Combat League, if he could take on of the robots, where he hangs out in Tampa and more. You can check out the full interview here.
