WWE star Chris Jericho joined Sirius/XM satellite radio host Sam Roberts in studio. Jericho spoke about his surprise appearance in the Royal Rumble and noted that he had to take part in a meeting with the other 29 entrants. He said he checked online repeatedly and was pleased to discover that no on spoiled the surprise.

Jericho also said he wanted to put his initials onto C.M. Punk in tattoo form. He noted that Punk was down with the idea, but Vince McMahon nixed it. "It's too bad because it would have been a great angle," Jericho said. He added that they instead played up the alcohol issues. You can view the full interview at

Powell's POV: Jericho was in studio for 25 minutes and discussed his feud with Shawn Michaels and accidentally punching his wife in the face, when he feels he gained respect from Vince McMahon and the office and became a top guy, whether he was afraid of getting too much heat, refusing to sign autographs or to have merchandise when he was a heel, and much more.
