Wrestling DVD News previously reported there might be a new Chris Jericho DVD in the works, and Jericho himself seemed to confirm it on his latest Talk Is Jericho podcast.
Jericho had previously talked about shooting footage for a match compilation project, and more recently talked about the new project with a reference to it during a conversation about Chris Benoit. Jericho said Chris Benoit matches would probably not make the release, and Jericho himself would actually have some issues with including them anyway.
Jericho said the following about the project:
“Putting together a couple of my DVDs, and we’re working on the second one right now, that’s probably a combined total of about fifty matches that are on there between those two DVDs but I could never include a Benoit match. One, I don’t think I’m allowed to. Two, I don’t know if I’d want to, and that was one of the greatest moments of my career. Absolutely one of my favorite opponents and probably a dozen classic matches that I’d want to put on there, including the ladder match we had at the Royal Rumble in 2001, which I think is one of the best ladder matches of all time, totally forgotten because of Chris and the fact they don’t show any of his matches anymore.
Also too what was voted the best match in Raw history by a lot of people, Jericho and Benoit vs. Triple H and Austin, so famous for being the night H tore his quad during the match, the crowd going bananas and the first time anybody had vanquished the evil Steve Austin and Triple H. It was a huge night in WWE history, a huge moment in the history of the Tag Team Championships and a huge moment in the history of my career, and I can’t ever see that match really. I can’t watch that match. I think I’ve watched it once and it’s good, it’s a great classic five star match, but it’s always tainted when I see Chris Benoit…”
The new Chris Jericho DVD/Blu-ray is scheduled for a 2015 release as of right now. For the latest on the Chris Jericho DVD, visit Wrestling DVD News!
