One of the many legendary wrestlers who have trodden the rings around the pro-wrestling world a bit before arriving on the avenue of the sunset of his career, responds to the name of Chris Jericho, multiple world champion of the WWE, who before landing at the end of the 90s in the rings of the Vince McMahon's company, he had already passed even for a short stint from the rival company of the then WWF: the WCW.
After staying several years on the McMahon family square, as one of the best and most multifaceted fighters in WWE history, Chris Jericho preferred a change of scenery, going to fight in that emerging company that was AEW a few years ago, making it born from nothing, along with the help of Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes.
Y2J was in fact the very first world champion of the All Elite, with the reign of him that has raised the value of a company that was still quite unknown on a planetary level.
Chris Jericho on Vince McMahon
In the last episode of his Talk is Jericho, his personal podcast that has been on the air for years and that scores huge ratings, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho wanted to invite former WWE Euguene, aka Nick Dinsmore and with him, talked about the short stint he had in WWE of the current wrestling coach, with Chris Jericho who at one point also let slip: "Vince McMahon, the worst wrestler ever.
That schoolboy would probably have made a mistake too. "Speaking of Vince McMahon, Eugene spoke of the time he had managed to beat the WWE Chairman in a match, thanks to a" schoolboy", or a lightning-fast roll-up that takes the opponent by surprise and backs him from behind.
In the match that saw Eugene as protagonist against the Chairman and his son Shane, Shawn Michaels was instrumental in the victory of Eugene, with the former WWE who in fact recalled: "I think it was something like Vince and Shane versus Eugene.
They had to beat me in every way and in the end, they had to win. It was Shawn Michaels who finally came out just before the match saying 'Eugene should win after all those things you do to him' 'Okay, okay,' was their reply.
So at the end of the fair, I won, with a roll-up on Vince, one, two, three." Shawn Michaels and Triple H were the ones who interfered in the match, distracting the McMahons and allowing the boy with obvious mental problems to win his dream match against the evil boss, who had beaten and mistreated him until then.
We’re not sure how much time Vince McMahon ever really had to learn the ropes. He owns the ring, but that doesn’t mean he knows how to wrestle in it. At Mr. McMahon’s current age, we’ve likely seen his last actual match in the ring.
You can also never count Vince McMahon out from doing anything he wants in his own company, even if he’s not really trained to do it.
