Lead singer of Fozzy and WWE Superstar Chris Jericho recently appeared on The Steve Austin Show Podcast and gave some insight as to what it's like working for WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.
Jericho On Vince Keeping Tabs on Interviews & Social Media:
“You’ve got to watch what you say at all times because they’re watching you even when you don’t think they are. They’ll find out. The boss will find out. I often wonder… It’s not even wondering – I’m sure it happens. He probably gets a report every day. ‘Here’s the social media report, here’s the Twitter report, here’s the podcast report. This person said this’ or ‘that person said that.'”
Jericho Says You Have To Get Over With Vince McMahon Before getting a Chance to Get Over With The Fans:
“It doesn’t matter what you’ve done anywhere else in the world until you go through the WWE curtain and Vince can see you.” Jericho professed, “it doesn’t matter if you’re Steve Austin, Triple H, Mick Foley, Chris Benoit, AJ Styles, or Chris Jericho. I would probably say he doesn’t watch any wrestling whatsoever. He might hear some names. I don’t think he cares. Your job when you get to the WWE is to basically start from scratch and show Vince what you can do and if you get over with him, you’ll get a chance to get over. Not the pixie dust, but you need to get over with Vince first before you get the chance to really get over.”
Jericho on Being Friends With Vince McMahon:
“I consider Vince to be a friend of mine now.” Jericho admitted, “I asked him to go to AC/DC with me last year when they were at [Madison Square Garden] with Axl Rose and then he ended up tearing his quad and he never said he would go, but I invited him. What if he wants to go? What am I going to do? Do I stand in the seats with Vince and, like, air guitar with him? Like, what are we going to do if he shows up? Are these seats going to be good enough for him? Do I have to get a box now? What do I do?”
