-- Chris Jericho was a guest on The LAW: Live Audio Wrestling this past Sunday promoting the upcoming Fozzy show in Toronto on September 15th at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. The show is available at http://fightnetwork.com/news/41066:sept.-1-edition-of-the-law-w-chris-jericho-part-1/ and includes Jericho sharing a great story about the night before this year's Royal Rumble where he made a surprise return and worked for 48-minutes in the Rumble.
"I was in Anaheim at the North American Music Merchants Convention, which is where all the bands go and do signing for whoever it is that you’re endorsed by, and it’s a really giant convention thing. Afterwards, it’s just like a huge party. I was with M. Shadows from Avenged (Sevenfold), a really good friend of mine, and with a couple other guys from Avenged as well. We got completely plastered and loaded, and it ended up with me demanding that Matt’s friend let me kiss him on the lips. I wouldn't leave the car, and finally when I did leave the car I chased him around the car and then jumped on the hood of the car and wouldn't let him leave. Then the cops were called, and they were gonna arrest me. I was like “If I get arrested and thrown in the drunk bank tonight and miss the Royal Rumble, I’m probably gonna be in pretty big trouble.” So I stopped what I was doing, got in the car, and as we were driving away I punched him in the face as hard as I could. It was just like the worst feeling; everyone was so mad at me, and Shadows was like “You can’t punch guys in the face!” I felt awful. I woke up about an hour later and I had to go catch a flight, but I felt bad because I punched Shadows’ friend in the face, so I called that guy and apologized. Then my flight was delayed. I finally landed in Phoenix, got ready in one of the crew buses, and went out and wrestled for 48 minutes. So yes, that is how Jericho rolls. I remember Vince McMahon asked me the next day, “You haven’t wrestled in such a long time. I mean, obviously you’re in good shape, but how did you go out there and do 48 minutes and do all the stuff that you did?” I was like, “I don’t know.” I don’t know how I did it; I didn't even realize it was 48 minutes until afterwards. Someone told me, “You were out there for 48 minutes,” and I was like, “Oh, wow! That’s awesome.” It’s one of those things. It’s just part of the job, I guess."

-- Quinton Hocker sent this one in: Hey, I was at RAW last night and I saw what happened. It really started before anyone was let into the arena. They were dressed up as Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Jake The Snake Roberts, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and Rowdy Roddy Piper. They were taking pictures with people all night and mimicking the characters as the night went on and during the show. At one point during the first hour, one of the security guards walked up to them and said something but it had to be a joke or something cause they were all laughing and having a good time after it.
As for the incident that happened. During Orton/Rhodes, fans were chanting for each one and they would acknowledge the crowd doing some signature move or taunt. This is when everyone from security to a guy that sits by the announce team JUMPED the railing to calm those guys down and basically quite them. After that moment, they were a little more quite but still got into the show.
However, at the end of the show during the after the Dark Main Event, CM Punk defeated Axel and Heyman. After that, he ran around ringside to celebrate with fans and thank them for coming out. When he got to the corner where those guys were, he stood there for a while, talked to them, cracked jokes and even kissed Ric Flair's ring saying "this is the greatest moment of my career!"
