Chris Jericho On Why There Won't Be "Stupid Idiot" WWE Merchandise, Being Pushed By Younger Talent

Ted Gruber has a new interview on FanSided with Chris Jericho, who was promoting his new podcast network, "The Jericho Network." Below are a couple of highlights:

His current WWE run:

"It's always a blast coming back. I think the work I'm doing this year has been the best of my career. At least since 2008-2009. It's fun being heel and being locked into something I haven't been doing for years. I think it's really grown on people.

"Let me tell you the guys I'm working with that are 10-15 years younger than me are pushing me to that next level. It's so much fun because my desire level continues to rise and work that much harder. As long as I still can move and feel like I'm at my peak, I will continue to do this. If I ever start feeling like I'm going down the totem pole, ability wise. People say age is just a number and it really is. Psychologically, I feel like I'm at the top of my game."

When WWE will release some "Stupid Idiot" merch:

"I have a real rule that when I'm heel I don't want the WWE selling my merchandise. I don't want someone in the crowd wearing a shirt with that phrase and thinking it's funny when it's supposed to be an insult. I still have enough old school in me that I don't want people wearing my slogans or phrases that are supposed to be booing me. Does it really matter? Probably not. But it's one of those things to me that it does matter. Maybe it will piss you off that there are no shirts out there so it will make you boo or hate me more."

Jericho also discussed his new podcast network, his band Fozzy, whether social media has hurt wrestling and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
