“When I went back and actually Googled the feud and found a couple timelines of it that some guys had put together and to read through that was like wow, I had really forgotten some of the intricacies of that storyline,” Jericho said. “And I was reliving it myself to go back and re-remember all of that stuff so I could write it down… But I’m sure a lot of details in the Michaels-Jericho feud would have been left out had I not had the option and the luxury to go back and relive it myself.”
