LONDON, May 11 (UPI) -- Semi-retired WWE wrestler Chris Jericho said that if he never wrestles again, it wouldn't bother him.

Jericho, whose real name is Chris Irvine, has left the World Wrestling Entertainment a few times now, but said that he'd be OK with it if he never returned.

"You know if I never wrestle again it won't bother me, I don't want the big send-off -- I don't want the big farewell match where I'm in the ring crying in front of 70,000 fans because I'm such a hero and my career is done, I don't look at it that way. My career continues to move forward," he told Britain's Mirror.

"One day much to my fans' chagrin I won't be wrestling anymore but I'll playing rock 'n' roll in your town, or I'll be doing a podcast and you can hear me twice a week, or I'll be acting in some show or I'll be doing a spoken word performance. It's not like I'm just going to dry up and go away when I finish wrestling.

"Much of what I've been doing over the last few years is what I'm going to be doing for the next 20 years or 30 years, and less and less of that will be in-ring performing. Not that I couldn't still go out there now and kick ass and tear it up because that's what I do but when the time comes that I feel I couldn't do that anymore then I won't do it," he added
