Harvest House has a long and storied history with the WWE.
As we learned from WWE Hall of Famer Chris Jericho, the company was known for putting its foot in its mouth and taking risks in its own right.
Today, the imprint is still a powerhouse, with titles like the Undertaker vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin match on Raw and one of the greatest WrestleMania moments in history, the Undertakes coronation, in its archives.
It’s a roster that has also made it’s way into WWE Hall Of Fame.
Now, we’re learning that some of those classic Harvest House matches are still being seen in the WWE ring.
It was recently revealed that The Undertaker and Stone Cold are the only two wrestlers to win their WrestleMania matches in the current year.
We got a chance to sit down with Jericho, who has been involved with the company since it was founded, and discuss how the WWE has kept these legends on the roster.
Jericho talks about how he’s been involved in the company and how he got the chance to interview Undertaker.
Jericho, you started your career in the wrestling industry at the age of 12, and you’re currently in your 30s.
Why did you want to make it in the entertainment industry?
Jericho: I’ve been in a lot of different jobs.
I worked as a manager for a while, and then I worked for a couple of different companies, and I had a couple different things going on, and it was one of those things where I just thought, you know what, I’ve got to try and do something else.
I’m not the biggest wrestler in the world, but I’m going to give it a shot, because I think I could have been a big star if I had stuck around wrestling.
So I just decided to give wrestling a shot and just give it my all and just keep going, and that’s what I’ve done since.
What’s your experience like with the Raw brand?
Jericho (Laughs): I’ve seen Raw a lot.
It has been the best.
It hasn’t really changed since I started working for it.
I think there’s been a few years where things have changed, but they’ve never changed for the better.
That’s just the nature of what wrestling is, it’s a business, and everybody’s in it for their own reasons.
You see the guys on TV get paid, but you also see the people that work the show get paid.
So it’s always the same, and Raw is always going to be the best place to be.
I love the Raw product, I love what it represents, and the fans love the product, too.
WWE has always tried to keep their guys in the ring, and there are guys who have gone through different times in their careers.
I know people are wondering why Raw is still on, but that’s because it’s where you’re gonna be getting paid.
That being said, I think if you can get a paycheck from WWE and make it, it is a good place to go.
Jericho: Yes, I do think there are people who can make it there.
If they can make the money, I’m there, and if they can’t, I’d love to get back.
But I think you have to give the fans what they want, and what they deserve.
If you give the guys what they need, it’ll be okay, because they will continue to support you.
WWE’s most recent pay-per-view event, WrestleMania 31, saw the return of two of the biggest stars in the business: Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
What can we expect from the two of them at WrestleMania?
Jericho(Smiles): It’s gonna be exciting, man.
It’ll be great.
Ambrose(Laughs): The way I look at it, I always look at Wrestlemania as the most important one of them all, and WrestleMania is where I want to go with it.
It is the most exciting time of my career.
Rollins is known for his unique style of heel work.
How did he come to be a heel in WWE?
I was in the Royal Rumble, and my character, the Deadshot, I was doing the gimmick of the Underdog, and everyone was looking at me, and they were like, “This guy is the Deadshots best friend, he has this thing that he’s going to kill the Underdogs.”
And I was like, I have to put this on, this is the thing that I want.
So when I put that on, I knew that the audience was going to love it.
When I put it on, they were going to go crazy, and this is where it was gonna take off.
The way that Seth Rollins came into the company, you see him on Raw, and on Raw he’s always a good heel, and he’s really good at it.
But also, it was just me.
Seth was just
