Fans in Fresno and Ontario are in for quite the treat this week. When WWE rolls into town for a pair of live events, Chris Jericho will be working matches against Kevin Owens. Those should be beyond spectacular. The belief is that Jericho, who is almost done with his contract with the company, requested the matches because he wanted to work with Owens.

A lot of fans are heavily critical of Eric Bischoff, but he has once again proven his humility. During a recent interview, he revealed that one of his biggest regrets while being the top executive in WCW was that he did not listen to Chris Jericho enough. Bischoff stated that Jericho had a lot of great ideas at the time for his character, but he was too stubborn to listen to them, which led to Jericho leaving for WWE.

A hilarious claim was made on the latest episode of the Chris Jericho podcast interview show. The Great Khali stated that even though he may not be able to run nowadays, he can still work a match. In fact, he states that he could probably work an hour long match if that opportunity ever rises. The former world heavyweight champion feels that fans underrate his abilities.

During a recent interview, Chris Jericho gave his seal of approval to Billy Corgan being in the creative department. He stated that the lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins really knows and understands professional wrestling. He feels that fans should give Corgan a chance.

During her live podcast interview with Chris Jericho this week, Stephanie McMahon revealed something rather interesting.

Even though he has been out of the company for several years now, WWE fans are still clamoring for Shane McMahon. It should come as no surprise that he is leading in votes on a poll that asks who Chris Jericho should interview next on his podcast show. The odds of that happening are extremely unlikely, as McMahon has distanced himself tremendously from the company. He doesn't even bother to make time to show up for Wrestlemania.

Chris Jericho has already done it. Batista is thinking about doing it. Now, all eyes are on Dwayne Johnson to see if he would be interested in returning to WWE to work a schedule where you only do live events. The answer to that is rather disappointing if you're a big fan. Johnson simply does not have the time to do it because of all the business projects that he has going on at once. There is very little time in between shooting movies as well.

Since Steve Austin and Vince McMahon are at odds, WWE no longer has a host for the upcoming return of Tough Enough. They reportedly turned their attention to Chris Jericho, who is also doing a podcast interview show or the company. They feel that he would be a more than adequate replacement for Austin. Jericho, however, has stated that he has not had any talks with the front office about the role. He might just be working the fans, though.
