Chris Jericho Wasn’t Happy About His “Masked Singer” Elimination

Recently, current Ring Of Honor (ROH) World Champion and AEW star Chris Jericho took part in an interview with Entertainment Weekly and talked about how he was “pissed” to be eliminated from the program.

“Honestly, I was pissed. I was not happy. And it was the studio audience votes that got it. And I was like, “This is why you never let the fans be in charge.” [Laughs] Because I thought my performance was killer. And it was one of those things where there were other songs that had been rehearsed, and all that sort of thing. So it was something that I was kind of angry about, but that’s just because I’m a professional and I don’t like to lose.

It was a lot of fun, to be honest with you. I thought we had a lot that we could do with the Bride costume and character. Because it’s so hard to maneuver, and I was just really figuring it out, because it really is a full-on bodysuit, and it’s very heavy. It’s very hot inside, too. So we kind of had to figure out how to make that work. And then once I was able to make that work, I was like, “Wow, I could really do some more with this, maybe some choreography,” and that sort of thing.

Chris Jericho continued:

You would have to be a bigger guy to be able to maneuver this because it was very, very restrictive, if you didn’t have a lot of strength in your legs and in your upper body to be able to move it. So yeah, it was disappointing, but like I said, I really enjoyed being in that costume, which I didn’t at first because it was so hot, it was almost like, I’m gonna pass out in this thing. I’m gonna be stuck in this costume.

How are you gonna get me out? But you figure it out. It was a work in progress because the costumes are so well-made and sculpted and designed. But once a human being is inside of it, sometimes you have to make some different adjustments to that.”
