– Chris Jericho spoke with CBC News to promote the second season of But I’m Chris Jericho! and more. Highlights are below:

On the show coming back for a second season almost five years after the first: “I got this call about a year ago that CBC was interested in doing a second season. I was super, like, blown away and excited, but also, what a surprise. It was one of those things that I thought was never going to happen again, so when it did, it was a real blessing and a bonus.”

On the series being loosely inspired by his own acting career efforts: “[I] would go to these auditions, where there was you know, 15 guys who looked just like me and were saying one line for you know, National Lampoon’s Beer Fest. But I’m like, ‘But I’m Chris Jericho! I have a fan base! I have some notoriety! And this is what I’ve been reduced to?’ ‘Do you know who I am?’ is the worst thing you can say.”

On his personality helping his wrestling career: “When I started out as a wrestler, I wasn’t big enough. It was all six-foot-eight, three hundred pound guys and I knew I’d never be the biggest guy on the show, but I could be the best character, with the best charisma, the best personality. So to me, I’ve always been an entertainer.”

On the appeal of his Wrestle Kingdom 12 match: “When you’re from Winnipeg, you follow the other Winnipeggers. I knew there was this guy named Kenny Omega that was killing it in New Japan: the top guy, having the greatest matches in the world….So I love it. Here we are, two Winnipeggers headlining the Tokyo Dome … It’s like Mayweather versus McGregor in a match you’d never thought was going to happen, because it’s so outside the box.”
