Chris Jericho Talks About Bray Wyatt’s Character, Unique Theme Song & More

The Miami Herald has published part two of their two-part interview with Chris Jericho. During the interview, Jericho offered the following comments about his Battleground opponent, Bray Wyatt:

“It’s different. It’s something nobody’s ever seen before. It’s a character that he’s really dropped into. People believe it’s real, and when people believe it’s real, they get into it. Same thing as heel Jericho from 2008 and 2009. People wanted to fight me on the streets for real. I was getting in fights with fans. People believed this character was the biggest %$#^& on earth, because that’s the way I played it.”

“It’s like an Academy Award winning actor. When he wins an award, there’s a reason for that, because you believed the character. That’s what Bray’s doing. He dropped into it. He’s embraced it. He created it. It’s real. So it’s something the people haven’t seen before, and that’s why it’s getting over as good as it is.”

“[The music] really fits the character. It’s a swampy type, groovy, New Orleans Cajun type vibe. It’s a little bit creepy, and that’s basically what the Wyatts are as well. It’s very important to have a good ring song that really matches your character to help you get into that character, before you go on stage. That’s very, very important.”

    Jericho imma let you finish but you and Bray better have saved all the good storytelling for the Road to SS. If you did not, boy we’re in for a rough ride…

    Have fun with Cena’s leftovers, now no-one cares about Bray since Cena completely killed his momentum, Bray’s promos now are getting boring chants, yay WWE.

    • Gotstodobetter

      He just proved that he was the flavor month and you people have no loyalty once so ever.

  • Progressed_Now

    lol Bray would fit nicely in Left 4 Dead 2

    • Sigma ?

      If he replaced Ellis of course.

  • insomniacreviewer

    At Least Jericho is going to man up and put people over because he actually cares about the business unlike super ego Cena.

    • Gotstodobetter

      Jericho is a jobber he has no other choice to “put people over” lol

      • Jose Mourinho

        He is a legend*

      • JamieEvsxx

        I really don’t understand why people are calling Jericho a jobber…he’s just putting younger guys over…it’s not like he’s booked completely weak in these feuds (like most jobbers are, not that they’re usually in feuds anyway) and besides…the guy’s done so much in WWE and it’s great to see him come back to help the younger guys get over and ok it doesn’t work all of the time (i.e. Fandango), but I’d much rather see him try to help out the younger guys than see him get given a load of titles and everything which won’t really benefit him as much because the guy’s already considered a top star and he’s already done so much in the WWE…=/
