Yeah, absolutely. Like I said, Vince McMahon saw something in me right away, but Chris really push for me. He got me on Talk is Jericho. He told me a few times that he called the writers and Dave Kapoor, great writer there, and said man, you guys want to hire this guy, he's got something and at the end of the day was Vince’s call, but Jericho definitely helped me up a bunch and you know, I'm still friends with Chris to this day. Every now and then I'll text him and I owe him a lot. He really pushed for me and helped me and I'm just so grateful for him. Absolutely.
