Jay "Christian" Reso Talks WWE Hall Of Fame And Thoughts On AEW
"I appreciate people feeling like I should be in there."
Most people know Jay Reso for his work in WWE as Christian. Over the years, he became a tag team and world champion with the company, and now co-hosts the E&C Pod of Awesomeness with his former tag partner Edge. Additionally, he's a host and judge of the new History Channel competition series Knight Fight. Although Reso has moved away from in-ring action, he is still a valued voice in the wrestling community.
In 2012, Reso inducted his former partner Adam "Edge" Copeland into the WWE Hall of Fame, which was a fantastic moment. However, seven years later, Reso has yet to be honored with an induction of his own, which has many wondering when it will be his time. "I get asked it a lot," he told GameSpot while promoting Knight Fight. "I appreciate that people think of me and hold me in that regard. I honestly don't think about it that much. It's not going away. It's gonna be there every single year. I'm sure at some point, my time will come. I don't think about it; I don't worry about it too much. But I appreciate people feeling like I should be in there."
While Reso continues to discuss WWE's product on his podcast and create programming on the WWE Network--like The Edge And Christian Show That Totally Reeks Of Awesomeness--he's still in touch with what's happening with the sports entertainment giant, including the recently announced All Elite Wrestling. "It's pretty ambitious," Reso said. "You have guys like Cody and The Young Bucks, and they've done some pretty big things--outside the box--here in the last year or so. And yeah, I wish them all the luck. I don't ever think it's a bad thing to have a place for performers to go and perform. I wish them all the luck and I hope they do well with it."
Reso went on to say he's interested in seeing who Jericho faces. "I think, by far, he's the, internationally, probably the biggest star on the roster, as far as that goes. So it'd be interesting to see who he gets paired up with off the top."
You can see more of Reso on Knight Fight, which premieres Wednesday, January 23 at 10 PM ET / PT on the History Channel.
