Can't get enough of home crookin'

By TY PILSON -- Calgary Sun

 For anybody who's ever seen Jericho on the tube or spoke with him in person, it's easy to see that the charismatic superstar was born to portray a bad guy.

 Just ask him if he likes playing the heel better than the babyface?

 "Much better, much better," he said.

 "There are less rules.

 "It was nice to have them connect with me in a good way but more fun to have them connect with me in a bad way. And to be quite honest, I really don't like our fans anyway, so it's a natural progression for me."

 It's often hard to tell when Jericho is in character or out but when he takes potshots at the fans, you know it's part of the act. Y2J loves wrestling and the fans have played a big part in getting him to where he is today -- at the top.

 "I felt like I had made it in this business back when I was living in Calgary and working in Japan every four months back in 1995," said Jericho. "The whole time I've been in the business, working full time, I've felt like I made it. I've been at the top in every country I've worked in -- Mexico, Japan. But, of course, being at the top, so called, of the WWE is huge, it doesn't get any bigger than that."
