Continuing, the former Y2J used his time as the inaugural WWE Undisputed Champion to highlight his point on how important timing is in wrestling. Speaking about the same, the former WWE wrestler said he wasn’t the top guy in the company. That didn’t happen until 2008. He further added that it was too early for him. But he was the best guy for the job when Triple H was hurt. But it wasn’t killer said the wrestler.

While Chris Jericho’s Undisputed Championship run was lackluster to some fans, the star would go on to become a main-eventer in WWE by 2008, as he noted.

“Timing is everything. I try to tell some of our younger guys this: you can’t have it all, it takes time. It takes time for the story to be right, and it takes time for the audience to be intrigued and hooked by it. Also, it takes time as a performer. You look back to when I was an Undisputed Champion?

‘Oh, you beat The Rock and Steve Austin?’ Was I really ready for that? It was as good a time as any but it wasn’t like if it was now!

It was the first taste of being a main event guy, a champion, but I wasn’t really the champion. I wasn’t the top guy in the company, that didn’t happen until 2008. It was too early for me, but I was the best guy for the job when Triple H was hurt. But it wasn’t killer.”
