A video has surfaced of Elias speaking with Olga and Mack at the Complex offices earlier this month where he talked about various topics including Chris Jericho and his thoughts on part-timers in the WWE. Here is what he had to say:
“To be honest with you, I’m sick of Chris Jericho,” Elias said. “I’ve had enough of Chris Jericho. I’ve seen him on my TV far too often. I’m the guy that plays guitar and sings on Monday Night RAW, and he shows up, tries to steal my act? It was OK for a quick laugh or something like that but on a personal level, the guy’s personality just rubs me the wrong way. His ego is just totally out of control, unfounded, and I can’t stand people whose egos are just not deserving. That’s all I can say.”
“They can do whatever they want,” Elias answered. “If you want to consider them part-timers or once-a-year guys, or whatever it is, they can do whatever they want as long as they understand, when they’re coming back to Monday Night RAW or pay-per-view or something like that, it’s my show now. WWE is Elias’ and as long as you accept that, you can do whatever you want but if you don’t accept it then come to me because I definitely have a problem with that.”
