Chris Jericho holds the record for the most number of reigns with the WWE Intercontinental Title and always took the championship seriously. However, the same cannot be said for Vince McMahon.
During that conversation with Vince McMahon, Jericho was trying to convince his way out of the match. He said he would go after the Intercontinental Championship and win the title for an unprecedented 10th time. Then McMahon said something that shocked Jericho – he said: “nobody cares about the f*cking Intercontinental Championship.”
‘’What about Wade Barrett? I’m a nine-time Intercontinental Champion. I could go for my tenth victory, the record-breaking tenth Intercontinental Championship.’ [Jericho asked McMahon]. [Vince McMahon] goes, ‘Oh nobody cares about the f*cking Intercontinental Championship,’ and I said, ‘Well they don’t care about Fandango either,’ and he goes, ‘That’s your job is to make them care’ and I said, ‘So I can’t change your mind?’ He goes, ‘No’ so I hung up on him. I hung up on my billionaire boss because I wasn’t happy with what he wanted me to do, prima donna Jericho in the hiz.”
