Chris Jericho: I Nearly Replaced Shane McMahon At WrestleMania 34

Chris Jericho: I Nearly Replaced Shane McMahon At WrestleMania 34

Chris Jericho has said he almost replaced Shane McMahon as Daniel Bryan's partner, during their WrestleMania 34 match against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

Speaking on his 'Talk Is Jericho' podcast, the Fozzy frontman said he was called by Vince McMahon a month before the show, after Shane was diagnosed with diverticulitis. 

He said: "He [Vince] goes, ‘Listen, we don’t know if he can do ‘Mania.’ And he had somehow looked, or got someone to look at my schedule, and we had a Fozzy show that day.

"So he was like ‘I know you’re doing a Fozzy show, and you’re gonna watch WrestleMania with your fans,’ he goes, ‘what would you think about coming to New Orleans if Shane can’t do it?"

Jericho also said Vince offered a full police escort to get him to the arena, but was concerned about how Zayn and Owens would feel calling the match on the fly. 

"I said 'Kevin and Sami – especially Sami – are gonna have heart attacks calling a WrestleMania match in the ring.’ I mean, obviously we would think of some stuff beforehand, but like, I can do it," he said. 

"I don’t have a problem, so can you. We could do it now. But like, Sami is going to die of a frickin’ aneurysm is we do that!”

Despite these concerns, Shane McMahon was able to compete, with the team beating Zayn and Owens to prevent them from getting contracts with SmackDown Live.
