On being moved to WWE’s alumni section:
“Once I left, I was gone. There was a big brouhaha with people saying, ‘Oh, as soon as Jericho appeared at the rally he was moved from the active roster to the alumni on the WWE website.’ Why wouldn’t I be? I’m not in the WWE anymore,” stated Jericho. “I am WWE alumni and proud WWE alumni but why would I still be on the active roster? I’m not there anymore”
On being taken out of the “Then, Now, and Forever” opening video package:
“People were saying I was taken out of the Then, Now, and Forever video. Again, why wouldn’t I be? Why would you promote somebody on your show that’s working for another show? That’s business. I would be surprised if I was still in the video. Same reason Vince took me out of the casket match against Undertaker at Greatest Royal Rumble. Why would you put me in a spotlight match when two weeks later I’m going to be on AXS TV in the main event against Naito? I get that. It doesn’t bother me.”
