Bay News 9 interviewed Chris Jericho. Here are some highlights.

If he runs into Hulk Hogan, who also lives in Tampa: “No, I actually run into the Incredible Hulk once in awhile – the big green guy. He chases me down the block sometimes, but I haven’t seen Hulk Hogan in years.”

Where he hangs out in Tampa: “Just basically at home. I do so much stuff. I’m always around the world doing all the different things that I do. Whenever I’m actually in Tampa, I basically stay at home and do whatever my kids want to do. You’ll see me at Chuck E. Cheese or Airheads or at the mall in the play area. All those cool places. The days of going down to Ybor City to get loaded pretty much don’t happen too much.  When I’m at home, I’ve got to be “dad.” It’s the only way to balance out what I do.”

If he has a dream match: “I really don’t think that way. I’ve kind of done everything that I’ve ever wanted to do in wrestling and kind of worked with everybody, from the biggest of the big to the smallest of the small. I go back to wrestling when I have time available because I still love it and it’s fun for me. I’d work with anybody. To me, I just enjoy doing a lot of different things and that’s the way it should be at this point in time, especially after 22 years of being in wrestling. You can’t just keep all of your eggs in that basket. Over the years I’ve kind of drifted away from that world.

“It gives me the chance to do other cool things, like Robot Combat League, which was an amazing project to be involved with that came across my desk and was so interesting and so unique. It’s something, like, you hear about an 8-foot-tall giant robot fighting show and it’s like, ‘how can I not want to be involved with that?’ So it blew my mind, actually, just the technology and how far advanced it was to have this show – the fact that it even existed and the fact that the robots move as fast as they do and fight as hard as they do and are as cool as they are.”
