During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Copeland heaped praise on Jericho for reinventing his character once again:

“Right now, I’m watching [Chris] Jericho, and man, he’s so much fun to watch. He’s recreated himself again. He’s leaned into what the naysayers have said, and he’s took it and run, and now he’s bringing Bryan Keith and Big Bill with him.

He’s the perfect person to bring those two guys along and get them the spotlight, get their character. Clearly, they can both do character work. Bryan Keith, he might be one of my favorite characters all of a sudden. I love it. Then here’s this seven-foot, 300-pound ripped dude being professor positive. I love it.”
