Chris Jericho Comments on His Wrestling Future & NXT

Nick Paglino

ESPN.com has posted a new interview with WWE star Chris Jericho. Below are some highlights:

On WWE’s NXT Show: "I wasn’t really given a choice in performing. I was basically just told I was going to be on the show and that was it. But I think it’s a good concept. There are still some bugs that need to be worked out in the system, but I like my protégé, Wade Barrett. I think he’s got great presence and a great character. I also think Daniel Bryan, obviously, is an extraordinary performer as well. Those two guys stand out to me right off the bat."

On how long he intends to continue wrestling: "At this stage of the game, I’m doing the best work of my career and I feel physically great and mentally great, so there’s no reason to think about stopping now. We’ll see what happens, but for right now, I see no end in sight. But who knows, tomorrow I can wake up and give you a whole different story. But when I left, I said I wasn’t going to come back until I felt like I could be better than ever, and I think the work I’m doing is the best of my career and I want to continue to do just that for as long as I can."
