In the final part of a 2 part conversation this week on MLW Radio, available right now at MLW.com, WWE superstar Chris Jericho joined Konnan to discuss to discuss a variety of topics, including why he‚Äôs never worked for TNA. Konnan brought up negotiations Jericho had with TNA in the past and Jericho had this to say when asked why he ultimately never signed with TNA:
‚ÄúThe main reason is that I always wanted to work for Vince McMahon ever since I was a kid. I‚Äôve never worked for anybody else since I stepped through the doors in August of 1999 and I never will work for anyone else. I don‚Äôt want to go to Japan. I don‚Äôt want to go to Mexico for shots. I don‚Äôt want to go work in TNA. I‚Äôm a WWE guy. That‚Äôs the way it‚Äôs always going to be.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm sure TNA is a great company to work for. I‚Äôm sure you can do really well there or make some great money or whatever. It doesn‚Äôt matter to me. I work for the big leagues. There‚Äôs no reason for me to go anywhere else.‚ÄĚ
Jericho also discussed changes in how concussions are treated in the industry and how it‚Äôs shaped his views on Chris Benoit.
‚ÄúI was like everybody else. Shocked. A sense of ‚Äėwhat the [expletive]‚Äė happened. Denial. Betrayal. How can he do this?
‚ÄúI look back at it now, and I was really close with him, but he got considerably stranger and stranger the last six months of his life. I was like, what‚Äôs with this guy? What‚Äôs wrong with him? And now I know the reason why. It‚Äôs because his brain got worse and worse.‚ÄĚ
