WWE star Chris Jericho comments on how much longer he intends to wrestle

Chris Jericho told ESPN that he wasn't given a choice when it came to taking part in the WWE NXT television show. "I wasn't really given a choice in performing," Jericho said. "I was basically just told I was going to be on the show and that was it. But I think it's a good concept. There are still some bugs that need to be worked out in the system, but I like my protégé, Wade Barrett. I think he's got great presence and a great character. I also think Daniel Bryan, obviously, is an extraordinary performer as well. Those two guys stand out to me right off the bat."

Jericho was also asked how much longer he intends to wrestle. "At this stage of the game, I'm doing the best work of my career and I feel physically great and mentally great, so there's no reason to think about stopping now," he said. We'll see what happens, but for right now, I see no end in sight. But who knows, tomorrow I can wake up and give you a whole different story. But when I left, I said I wasn't going to come back until I felt like I could be better than ever, and I think the work I'm doing is the best of my career and I want to continue to do just that for as long as I can."

Powell's POV: Jericho also discussed the big bump Bryan took during their NXT match, compared Bret Hart to GNR's "Chinese Democracy" album (love it), and discussed some of the stronger storylines he's been involved in. Highly recommended interview.
