Chris Jericho says his storyline with Kevin Owens ‘is just beginning’

This is the best news I’ve read all day.

Rumors have long said Chris Jericho would be taking another break from WWE beginning after Hell in a Cell later this month. And the Fozzy frontman is a worker, so him telling us he’s not leaving doesn’t really mean anything - heck, he teased an exit months ago just for fun.

But as a huge fan of his heel work over the last few months, and especially his oddball partnership with Universal champion Kevin Owens, I’m gonna hold on to this quote from a recent interview Nick Hausman conducted with Y2J for Sports Illustrated’s 120 Sports:

I think the storyline with Kevin Owens and Jericho is just beginning. I think there’s a lot of legs to this storyline and it’s one of the rarest of things. It’s a storyline that basically built organically that was never supposed to be a storyline. I had that with Shawn Michaels in 2008 and Rey Mysterio in 2009. We just end up with this present, this great chemistry between KO and I. A lot of intrigue and mystery. A lot of interest from the people watching from the WWE Universe. I am really looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen at Survivor Series, Hell in a Cell and continuing forward. I think there’s a lot in the tank for Jericho and Owens. Especially from what’s transpired so far.

JeriKO forever.
