WWE star Chris Jericho has admitted that he was not initially happy to be feuding with Fandango.
Speaking to Hooked on Wrestling (via ewrestlingnews), Jericho also explained that he has since changed his opinion, and also believes that Fandango would be a good babyface character.
“[Vince McMahon] loves it. He’s rolled with it from the start and now it’s getting over to a degree – I don’t know if he’s more over or the song is over, but at least there’s a reaction. To be honest I did a lot of that to make it happen. It’s why Vince put me with him for WrestleMania.”
“I told Vince probably about a week before WrestleMania, he’s going to be a babyface soon. ‘Why?’ he says. Because it’s such a ridiculous character and he plays it so well so far that most of the crowd will be cheering for him, too. It’s hilarious. Here we are two weeks later and he’s the most over guy on the show. Well, at least his music is.”
Jericho’s feud with Fandango continues next week on Raw with a ‘Dance-Off’, and they are expected to clash again in a match at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
