Chris Jericho shared his thoughts on the passing of Bray Wyatt recently, talking about their friendship and more. Wyatt passed away last month at the age of 36 and Jericho shared some memories of Wyatt on Talk is Jericho. You can see some highlights below, per Wrestling Inc:

On their friendship: “At one point in time we were really, really close friends, and not that anything happened. But, you know, you don’t see each other for a while, and you kind of drift apart because he’s in one company and I’m in another. But, we always had a great relationship and I always kind of complimented him and spoke to him about his ideas.”

On diving onto Wyatt during their steel cage match: “I’d do it now at 52, especially with someone like Bray, who I could trust. Bray was a creative faucet, so many ideas that he had and he would just keep pouring them out. ‘Here’s an idea, here’s an idea, stop, stop, stop, what about that idea from a couple of ideas ago?’ Just a great guy and left us way too soon. It hit me on the plane ride, I got really sad during the plane ride.”
