Chris Jericho Planning To Snub His Own WWE Hall of Fame Induction

'Y2J' says he doesn't do "pomp and circumstance"

Chris Jericho has suggested that he may skip his WWE Hall of Fame induction.

The Fozzy front-man, who is currently on a wrestling hiatus, is quoted as saying in Aesthetic Magazine: "If it happens, I probably wouldn’t show up."

He went on: "I don’t like these big pomp and circumstance things like retirement matches, and everybody kissing your ass telling you how great you are, because I know how great I am, so I don’t need people telling me that."

We can probably go ahead and take out the if it happens qualifier, since Jericho - as the first-ever Undisputed Champion and a WWE employee for close to two decades - is more or less there already.

But it would be a shame if we didn't get a Y2J acceptance speech, particularly after seeing Kurt Angle wow this year's crowd by necking a pair of milk bottles.

Luckily, Kevin Owens' former best friend didn't close the door on an appearance completely, adding: "I’ll show up, maybe, depends how I feel."

Given how much Jericho loves a surprise return, you can probably expect him to come out at the very last second (and then stand at the podium and say absolutely nothing).
