During an interview with ESPN.com, Chris Jericho discussed Vince McMahon being in control of the creative process in WWE and Moxley’s (Dean Ambrose) departure.
“It’s something that if you work in the WWE system, you know it’s true,” Jericho said. “It’s part of the genius of Vince McMahon. It’s what he thinks. Sometimes you agree, sometimes you don’t. You heard all about it on Moxley’s podcast. When you work for Vince, you have to do things his way. That’s just the way it goes. I think that it’s very eye-opening for people to hear just exactly how intricate those ideas and thoughts Vince has are. A lot of them are genius, a lot of them are weird, a lot of them are strange. But it’s up to you to do your best and make the best of what you got, as Moxley did.”
“You finish up your work, you finish out, you do what they want to do, you put over who needs to be put over and you move on to the next territory,” Jericho said. “That’s the best way to do business. You don’t walk out, you don’t ask for your release. You don’t quit. You finish out the job that you were contracted and expected to do as a professional. Once that’s done, then it’s up to you. You go where you want to go and do what you want to do. And that’s exactly what Moxley did, and he seems quite happy right now. So hopefully that’s inspirational to other talent in the business.”
