Chris Jericho on Clearing the Match with Vince McMahon
Triple H also confirmed Jericho’s comments earlier this week regarding having cleared the match with Vince McMahon.
Jericho had this to say on the “Busted Open” radio program:
“I know [McMahon] wasn’t upset because I called him six weeks before and told him as soon as the deal was done,” Jericho said. “I would never surprise him like that. I didn’t ask him for his permission, but I didn’t have to. I told him what was going on — and to be quite frank for you guys, he was super excited about it.”
“If you know Vince, he loves wrestling. It’s what he knows, and it’s what he knows best. I think, obviously, his mission is to seek and destroy and kill every other company, but I think he secretly likes it when other companies do good, because it just makes it better for his company.”
