Chris Jericho has worked hard to establish himself as one of the most well-respected wrestlers in the pro wrestling business. He has worked in numerous pro wrestling companies over the years and made an impact everywhere.
Le Champion’s entrance theme ‘Judas’ is one of the most beloved songs in all of pro wrestling right now. Every week, fans continue to sing along to the song as Jericho makes his way down to the ring.
Tony Khan convinced Jericho to not change ‘Judas’ into a remixed theme after turning heel. While speaking on the Official Jim Cornette YouTube channel, Jim Cornette blasted Chris Jericho for not trying hard enough to change Judas.
“My response is Chris didn’t try hard then. Because you can’t tell me that Tony Khan who listens to creative suggestions from everybody and does most of them apparently, if Chris Jericho tells Tony Khan ‘no it’s my song, they like to sing along, I want to take it away from them to be a heel’. Tony would say ‘no god d**n you Chris Jericho, if you don’t play the song that people cheer for, even though you’re a heel, just because you’re trying to make my business better, I’m gonna suspend you or fire you.’
No, he didn’t try very hard. He may have made a token attempt ‘oh no let’s keep it’ but there was no serious contemplation or request or demand made ‘no we’ve gotta do this differently if I’m gonna be a heel obviously’ or it would have been done differently. So, I don’t buy into that implausible story.”
Chris Jericho is set to square off against Bryan Danielson at AEW All Out. We’ll have to see how their match will turn out to be, as it is likely to be a banger.
