Chris Jericho has reacted to WWE failing to mention his name and disrespect him on Smackdown last night. Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, and Kevin Owens had a backstage segment where they were clearly talking about a ‘big name’ in Jericho, and even mentioned. a ‘list.’
Jericho tweeted, “Hey, wait a minute…” Jericho recently discussed pitching a title match with Chris Benoit in WWE on Talk is Jericho with Eugene. Jericho booking a storyline an AEW star hated was just revealed.
“I’ll never forget that week. I’m from Winnipeg. I think [Chris] Benoit was the champion at the time. I’m like, we should do something like Jericho vs. Benoit for the world title in Winnipeg. What a story, and [Brian] Gewirtz calls, ‘I got some ideas.’ What is it going to be?’ You’re going to play musical chairs.’ I was like, ‘What the f**k are you talking about?’ And I was super pissed because I was expecting some kind of classic angle in my hometown.
First time ever on TV in Winnipeg, but I’ll tell you what, that segment ended up being great because we’re just having some fun with it, and it was actually really cool, but when I was first pitched that, I was like, ‘This sucks! I hate Eugene,’ as if you wrote it.”
Eugene then discussed appearing on The Highlight Reel with Jericho, “It was a refreshing character at the time, and I remember it was you that told me this after I was The Highlight Reel. You said that the next week the ratings have gone up by X points that it hadn’t been that high in two years.” Wrestling Inc transcribed their remarks.
