Chris Jericho Reveals Why Stephanie McMahon Tried To Fine Him
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Jericho shared a story about a time when he got hit in the face by a DX glow stick that was thrown from the crowd at a WWE event.
Jericho responded by encouraging the fans to throw glow sticks at him, and he got exactly what he wanted.
“I’m doing my promo, typical heel stuff, everyone’s booing. Some dude hits me in the eyeball – it hit me hard. It pissed me off. And I was like ‘Alright, alright, you want to throw stuff at me? Everyone go ahead. Everyone start throwing stuff at me – come on. What do you got?’…There is a snowstorm of these glow sticks. There must have been one hundred. I remember being like a ninja, like Sugar Ray Leonard boxing them out of the way.”
The first ever Undisputed Champion went on to say that Stephanie McMahon wanted to fine Jericho for his actions, so Jericho took his grievances directly to Vince McMahon’s answering machine.
“After the show, I was told that Stephanie [McMahon] wants me fined and she wants me suspended. Well Stephanie’s not my boss. I don’t give a s–t what Stephanie wants – you can tell her that. I called Vince and cut a promo on his answering machine. [I said], ‘I got heat out there. This is my job. This is what I’m here to do. At the end of the night, the babyface beat me. What’s the problem? You’re going to fine and suspend me for getting heat? Bring it on m-erf-er.’”
It seems that the situation cooled down pretty quickly, as Vince didn’t even mention it the next day.
“Vince just texted me back with a little smiley face saying ‘calm down junior’. So the next day, at the Garden, he didn’t even mention it… He said ‘There’s no problem.’”
