Former WWE Famous person Chris Jericho not too long ago revealed that Vince McMahon had some very harsh phrases for Kevin Owens in 2017.
Owens and Jericho confronted off at WrestleMania in 2017 for the WWE United States Title in a match many felt had the most effective storyline heading into the present.
Nevertheless, throughout a current dwell tour of the UK, Jericho said on his podcast Discuss Is Jericho that the previous WWE Chairman wasn’t pleased with the bout:
“Vince stated to Kevin Owens, ‘that was the worst match in WrestleMania historical past,’ that is what he stated and he didn’t like that match and I used to be, like, ‘Actually? Did you not see a Large Gonzalez versus The Undertaker?’ For no matter he was actually on, Kevin’s case, for being form of like he stated, ‘you are fats, you are out of practice, and also you do too many strikes, and also you’re simply not heel.’ He was actually, actually on Kevin at that cut-off date, and our match was simply collateral injury.” (from 1:16:23 to 1:17:00)
Chris Jericho left WWE shortly after his feud with Owens earlier than making a shock return to New Japan Professional Wrestling that very same yr.
In contrast to Vince McMahon, Chris Jericho is a fan of his match with Kevin Owens
After working as a tag staff for nearly a yr, the 2 Canadian superstars grew to become probably the most fashionable acts on RAW.
Throughout an interview with TalkSport, Jericho stated that regardless of Vince McMahon’s want to decrease the worth of the match, he thought the competition was nice:
“It was nice. After which the following match we had on the following pay-per-view was wonderful as effectively. I wasn’t pleased with that match as a result of that they had us on second at that WrestleMania which was the writing on the wall that they didn’t care in regards to the feud. That was probably the greatest feuds that was initially meant to result in the primary occasion of WrestleMania after which it finally ends up on second.” (H/T: Talksport)
