According to wrestling-radio.com, in an interview, Chris Jericho went on to really rip into TNA. Jericho who is known for being very vocal and honest in interviews didn't hold anything back. He went on to take shots at the creative team and the Hardcore Justice PPV.
Here are the recent comments from Chris Jericho:
"They got nothing else going on, their booking is horrendous, and I say that with the utmost respect for those guys and I most desire to see them succeed, but it's crap. You know it's crap, they throw stuff up against the wall, and it's so hard to watch when it doesn't have to be."
"They're doing 10,000 buys on Pay-Per-View, so let's bring back The Sandman and Sabu, and maybe they could do 30,000 buys. Go for it. Maybe they can do something out of it. Having a guy like Tommy Dreamer involved behind the scenes might be what they need. Get rid of the same old stuff that they have been doing over and over, and bring in someone with a new perspective, and maybe that will help them get their heads out of there asses and just making some money instead of doing this as sort of a vanity project that's been treading water for the last four years."
To be fair, Impact has been solid the last month or so. They have done a better job building up their homegrown talent and kept the older guys on the lower to midcard level. It should also be noted that Jericho has had issues with TNA for some time now. A while back, Bischoff made a comment in regards to Jericho.
Bischoff basically said that he isn't all that great and he doesn't deserve to be at the main event level. This triggered a very angry response from Jericho, and it seems to me that he is still angry over the situation. He does make some very valid points in his statement though.
