Current AEW Star and former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho is no doubt one of the most accomplished and popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He has competed in several promotions such as WCW, WWE, ECW, New Japan Pro Wrestling and AEW among others. Chris Jericho also previously dropped a major return bombshell.
Chris Jericho also competed in quite a few matches in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, starting from his IWGP United States Championship against Kenny Omega back in 2018 to his matches for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship with Tetsuya Naito. He also squared off against Hiroshi Tanahashi back in 2020.
WWE Hall Of Famer The ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair has been regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever laced up a pair of boots in the world of professional wrestling. He is also a man full of controversies and has had trouble with a lot of pro wrestlers and pro wrestling personalities. One of them includes WWE legend Teddy Long. Bret Hart also recently called out Ric Flair for ‘flat out lie.’
Vince McMahon has a very stringent view of what should be acceptable when it comes to WWE’s product and it seems Chris Jericho was a victim of it. WWE Hall Of Famer The ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair recently spoke on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, where he revealed Vince McMahon fined Chris Jericho $25K for making Ric Flair bleed during a match.
You remember when Jericho picked up the TV monitor and hit me in the head with it? I’ve never put my hands up in my life, except for when it was Brody with a chair, because I would just break my hands, but at least it wouldn’t break my head. So I didn’t put my hands up and Jericho hit me with the chair and I got 25 stitches. So, Vince fined Jericho $25 grand and said, ‘I should fine you for letting him do it.’ I said, ‘Letting him do what?’ He (Vince) said, ‘Why didn’t you bring your hands up?’ I said, ‘I don’t know. But you should have asked me 25 years ago (laughs).”
