With his WWE contract up in a month or two, the multifaceted legend is switching his attention to music once again with feisty rock merchants Fozzy for the biggest UK swing of his career in October.
FT caught up with Jericho for an exclusive chat this week, and heâ€™s not sweating over his wrestling career â€“ he has no need, he tells me.
â€œIâ€™m not one of those people who worries about my position. Iâ€™m never going to lose my spot. I could work the opening match every night and still be a star.â€
The influx of youth via the Nexus angle seems to have turned heads, and Jericho is philosophical about the young blood.
