Talk Is Jericho: Ohno… It’s Chris Hero!

Chris Hero recently made his return to the wrestling ring after a 3-year absence and explains why West Coast Pro Wrestling was the perfect place to do it. He talks about the timing and his opponent, old rival Timothy Thatcher. He also talks about his gig as a coach and producer at AEW and the role that Sonjay Dutt played in it. Chris shares a bunch of great stories about his own mentors, Dory Funk Jr., and Tracy Smothers, and the lessons he learned from them that he passes on to his own students now. He also details his time at WWE & NXT, including his original tryout, his first run as Kassius Ohno, his relationship with Dusty Rhodes, and his original firing. He explains how and why he was brought back as a producer and coach and what led to his departure during the pandemic. And of course, he talks all about his longtime friendship with Claudio Castagnoli and their run as the Kings Of Wrestling on the indies and at ROH, and their incredible matches with The Briscoe Brothers.
