Chris Jericho: You couldn’t say ‘fans’ because it’s the WWE Universe

Earlier this year, former WWE superstar Chris Jericho officially announced his decision to sign with AEW for the next three years. The new company founded by the Khan family has also convinced Kenny Omega to move with a four-year offer.

During the latest edition of his Talk Is Jericho, the Canadian superstar revealed some anecdotes about his relationship with Vince McMahon: “You couldn’t say ‘fans’ because it’s the ‘WWE Universe.’ And never say ‘marks’ because [imitating McMahon] ‘they’re not marks – they’re our fans!’.

And the other one is the ‘job.’ [Imitating McMahon] ‘Uh uh. We do favors, not jobs.’ The Vince verbiage!” He also added: "Hey Vince, I don’t know if I should lose the belt.’ [Imitating McMahon] ‘The what?’ ‘Sorry, the title.’ You couldn’t say ‘belt’ because a belt is what you use to hold up your pants”.

Jericho is the ninth Triple Crown Champion, as well as the fourth Grand Slam Champion in history. In addition, he was the 2008 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award winner and (along with Big Showas Jeri-Show) won the 2009 Tag Team of the Year Slammy Award—making him the only winner of both Superstar and Tag Team of the Year.
