Fandango Speaks About Chris Jericho Not Wanting To Work With Him
On Such Good Shoot, Fandango revealed that he understood why Jericho did not want to work with him during that time. “I understand Chris’s animosity, his legacy and how much pride he has and the years he’s put in,” Fandango said.
“Chris is one of the reasons why I wanted to become a professional wrestler after he debuted WWF. That was around the time I was training. We were huge Chris Jericho fans and the whole conspiracy s--t, all of you guys in wrestling school at the time loved Chris.
So he was a big reason why I wanted to be a wrestler. “So working first major program with him, you know, obviously, you’re nervous, you’re intimidated. And I didn’t want to be a fucking dancer. But I knew that you got to make the best of it.
So if I was him I probably wouldn’t be too excited about it too. Maybe he was told he was gonna work someone else which I could see him being pissed off”. Fandango then spoke about learning how to dance before debuting as the Fandango Character.
“It’s like wrestling,” Fandango said of learning to dance. “They sent me to dance school for like a month so that I can, you know, just barely be good enough to be passable. But I remember being super nervous about the routine and like f**king it up and but once that was over, I was cool.
And yeah, I remember that wrestling match. He just wanted Chris to beat the s**t out of me for like five minutes. They gave us too much time. So the way that it was supposed to be I think was like Chris just beats the s**t out of me.
And I rolled them up out of nowhere. So it was supposed to be like the biggest upset. But I think they gave us like 10 minutes. So it was way too much time for what Vince wanted, I think. And Vince didn’t want me to wrestle. That was the whole thing. Yeah, he just wanted me to be a dancer”.
