-Daniel Bryan says there is a chance he wrestles at WrestleMania. “I don’t know and I don’t think they know.” he told The National. “I think it all depends on whether or not I get cleared. As of this moment, as of today, I am not cleared by WWE. I have done everything in my power. Everything they have asked me to and I have gone above and beyond as far as ‘Okay, what doctors do you need me to see. Send me to any doctor you want, any doctor that you want. and let’s get their feedback on what is going on with me.’ So far every doctor has cleared me that they have sent me too and so there is a chance. I used to think that the percentage of the WWE ever clearing me was low. I think with the stuff that I have done it has gone a little higher, but I don’t know how much higher. With how everything is there is one day to go if I don’t get cleared [storyline wise] and then there is another way to go if I am cleared. I am hoping to be cleared but I don’t know which way it goes.”

-Chris Jericho said fans of his band don’t chant wrestling phrases at him during his Fozzy performances. “No not really. It’s not that type of vibe. It’s just a big party of people who came to rock… The biggest thing is the non-stop Fozzy chants at every show that we play,” he said. “I think it’s crazy. When you first say or hear the name you think ‘that’s a strange name.’ But it’s by far the easiest name to chant. No matter who we’re playing with, people are chanting Fozzy in between every song. It’s very cool to hear.” He said the crowds who attend Fozzy events are also wrestling fans checking out the band for the first time, but “it’s also Fozzy fans that like wrestling as well because they’re Chris Jericho fans. What’s cool is that when they leave, everyone’s a Fozzy fan.” He said he enjoys fans not knowing his next move when it comes to his music and pro wrestling career. “I don’t do things for money anymore. I do it because I like to do it. It’s a good place, man, to do whatever I want to do and to enjoy all these different projects and make sure that fans can continue to get a lot of excitement out of what I do. It’s very important for me to make sure people can never pin down what Jericho is going to do next.” Read the full interview at Milwaukee Mag HERE. [Thanks to PWTorch reader Mike K.]
