Chris Jericho on what Pat Patterson could tell Vince McMahon

WWE owner Vince McMahon is known for having very strict opinions and anything he decides he doesn't want to be questioned. It is really hard for anyone to tell the Chairman that he is wrong and there are many who say that Vince McMahon manages the Raw and SmackDown rosters making various changes and without wanting to hear any criticism.

However, there is a WWE employee who could freely express his opinion and question the words of Vince McMahon. During a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho, former WWE and now All Elite Wrestling wrestler Chris Jericho revealed that the late Hall of Famer Pat Patterson was the character in question.

"Some days it's true it's almost impossible to talk to him but the reality is that the only one who could get away with it was Chris Jericho and he was the only one who could tell Vince McMahon 'This show sucks', surely I think no one else could ever do that," said Jericho

Jericho continued, "When Vince held meetings he would ask if everyone agreed and the various Yes Man would say yes, this is fantastic.

The only one who objected was Pat Patterson who said: 'This is terrible, this is really terrible! Where are the young people, but what are we doing? ' Then everybody would look at Pat perplexed and think 'Oh my God, he's criticizing Vince McMahon' The truth is that he could do it, he had a great relationship that had been going on for many years and so Vince was fine with it."

Chris Jericho then went on to add that Pat Patterson was a guy who always had his say but at the same time it must be said that all decisions were up to Vince McMahon, he is the owner and absolute commander and practically does what he likes inside the federation since WWE is his.

Vince McMahon is the column of WWE but there are people who are very trustworthy and among them the main WWE executives like Bruce Prichard and Kevin Dunn who Vince trusts and listens to most of the things they say. Jericho recalled how Patterson used to say that Vince McMahon could do whatever he wanted as it was his show.

In the same show, Jericho revealed how McMahon "buried" Dolph Ziggler as a rib on Patterson. Patterson was reportedly a big fan of Ziggler and would push for him in meetings, but McMahon would make Ziggler lose as a joke on Patterson.
