Y2J on his prior talks with TNA and his loyalty to Vince McMahon



filed to GERWECK.NET:

In the final part of a 2 part conversation this week on MLW Radio, available right now at: www.MLW.com , WWE
superstar Chris Jericho joined Konnan to discuss to discuss a variety of topics, including why he’s never worked for
TNA. Konnan brought up negotiations Jericho had with TNA in the past and Jericho had this to say when asked why
he ultimately never signed with TNA:

“The main reason is that I always wanted to work for Vince McMahon ever since I was a kid. I’ve never worked for
anybody else since I stepped through the doors in August of 1999 and I never will work for anyone else. I don’t
want to go to Japan. I don’t want to go to Mexico for shots. I don’t want to go work in TNA. I’m a WWE guy.
That’s the way it’s always going to be.”

“I’m sure TNA is a great company to work for. I’m sure you can do really well there or make some great money or
whatever. It doesn’t matter to me. I work for the big leagues. There’s no reason for me to go anywhere else.”

Jericho also discussed changes in how concussions are treated in the industry and how it’s shaped his views on Chris
Benoit.

“I was like everybody else. Shocked. A sense of ‘what the [expletive]‘ happened. Denial. Betrayal. How can he do
this?”

“I look back at it now, and I was really close with him, but he got considerably stranger and stranger the last six
months of his life. I was like, what’s with this guy? What’s wrong with him? And now I know the reason why. It’s
because his brain got worse and worse.”

MLW Radio is available for free at www.MLW.com and on iTunes (search: MLW Radio), along with episodes featuring

    ahmen on the brain issues for benoit. Now if only these internet rejects would accept it and get off the whole mudering child killer crap. He didn’t know what he was doing. Good for you jericho. If benoit had played football he would have ended up the same way. Concussions kill. Just ask seau. Oh wait, you can’t…
