Chris Jericho Reveals He Dislikes "Y2J" Chants

Chris Jericho isn't a fan of "Y2J" chants

Chris Jericho has reinvented himself throughout his pro-wrestling career, from The Painmaker to Le Champion to the List of Jericho to The Ocho. One chant that has followed the former AEW World Champion for the past 20+ years, though, and even from WWE to AEW is "Y2J", the moniker he adopted at the beginning of his WWE career in 1999. 

Speaking on the Basic! podcast, Jericho admitted the "Y2J" chants "bug" him because he has had so many gimmicks since his Y2J days.

"It kind of bugs me when people chant 'Y2J'. There's so many other things I've done since then. It doesn't bug me in a bad way, but it's kind of like, 'No, no, no. We're the Demo God.'...I really believe, and I think it's one of the reasons why I've still been able to stay on top for so long, it's always different. It's never the same thing. I'll always tweak it and change it and try different things...It's very important to stay fresh and stay current. Respect your past but always think of the future," Jericho stated.

Jericho established himself as a top star in WWE under his "Y2J" gimmick, holding the WWE Title and World Heavyweight Championship on multiple occasions. The 52-year-old is currently the leader of the Jericho Appreciation Society and the faction have begun a programme with House of Black over the AEW World Trios Titles since the Revolution pay-per-view.
