Chris Jericho Names Two WWE Hall Of Famers He Regrets Not Wrestling
Chris Jericho has wrestled many of the biggest names in the history of the business, but there are two guys he worked with in WCW that he missed out on.
During his 30+ years in pro wrestling, Chris Jericho has been fortunate enough to be one of the most durable wrestlers ever that has wrestled some of the biggest names ever.
In his WWE career, Chris Jericho beat The Rock & Steve Austin on the same night to become the Undisputed WWE Champion while also getting to work with other legends like Triple H, Kurt Angle, John Cena, Batista, Hulk Hogan, Edge and many others.
Since leaving WWE to wrestle more in Japan as well as AEW, Jericho has gotten to work with the likes of Kenny Omega, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Bryan Danielson, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tetsuya Naito and many others as well.
On a recent episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast while watching a 1987 Saturday Night’s Main Event show, Jericho named the legendary WWE Hall of Famer “Macho Man” Randy Savage as one of the two biggest regrets that he didn’t get to wrestle. The other was Bret Hart.
“Savage is on fire right here, man. What a f—ing talent. That’s one of my biggest regrets — I never got to work with Bret or Savage, even though I was in WCW with both of them!”
Chris Jericho was in WCW from 1996 to 1999 when Macho Man was there, but the company never booked them in a match together. Bret Hart arrived in WCW in late 1997, but Jericho didn’t get to work with him either.
“I was never allowed to get booked with those guys. It was so stupid.”
When Jericho saw Savage at a promotional event, he talked to Savage about not working together in WCW.
“He was like, ‘Yeah, I wish I had a chance to work with you.’ I’m like, ‘Then why didn’t you request it?'”
As for what’s next in his legendary career, Chris Jericho is scheduled to wrestle Roderick Strong next Wednesday on AEW Dynamite in a Falls Count Anywhere match.
