Chris Jericho On Hulk Hogan Vs The Rock Leaving Him Disappointed In His Wrestlemania Main Event
Chris Jericho shocked the world when he became the first-ever WWE Undisputed Champion. This lead to a main event match at Wrestlemania 18 but it didn’t go the way he wanted it to.
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, Y2J discussed how The Rock vs Hulk Hogan overshadowed his own main event.
“Let’s be honest, the main event and the fact that it was on last, but the main event of the show was Hogan and Rock and I knew it. Most people would be pitching for their match to go on last, I was pitching for it not to go on last.”
“I was like, ‘How do you follow Hogan and Rock?’ and Triple H — rightfully so he was fighting for the title match to be last, but we couldn’t follow it, we just couldn’t and you could see the air go out of the room — that’s a match I’ve never watched it back. Because I remember being kinda disappointed in it, you know?”
Y2J spoke to CM Punk many years later about why he left WWE and one of the reasons was due to him never main eventing Wrestlemania.
“I said dude, you worked with the Undertaker at WrestleMania — that’s the main event, any Taker match’ — he says ‘Well you can say that because you were on last.’ I said, ‘Okay I was on last, but I wasn’t the main event.”
