Chris Jericho Appears On 'The Jim & Sam Show' On 3/28/2019

Earlier this week, Chris Jericho appeared as a guest with comedian / radio host Jim Norton and WWE pre-show regular / radio host Sam Roberts on "The Jim & Sam Show" and spoke at length about his current relationship, or lack thereof, with WWE.

According to the wrestling legend, he is completely on the outs from WWE after signing a contract to join the new pro wrestling upstart promotion, All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

During his appearance on the SiriusXM radio show earlier this week, Jericho revealed where he stands behind-the-scenes with WWE since joining AEW and appearing as a surprise at the "Double Or Nothing Rally" in Jacksonville, Florida on Tuesday, January 8th.

When asked if he has spoken with Vince McMahon since parting ways with WWE in favor of joining the AEW movement, Jericho said that he has, but made it clear that he isn't considered to be on good terms -- by any means -- with WWE.

"I've talked with him a couple of times," said Jericho during 'The Jim & Sam Show' interview this past Thursday morning. "But I'm kind of public enemy number one there now."

Jericho added, "I've been kind of removed from the annals of history [in WWE]."

As he would go on to elaborate, Jericho revealed that all WWE Superstars have apparently been banned from appearing on his weekly Talk Is Jericho podcast at WestwoodOnePodcasts.com.

"I asked the other day if I could have a couple of their guys on my podcast to promote [WrestleMania 35] and I was told, 'No, it's not appropriate because you're in AEW,'" Jericho told Norton and Roberts.

He added, "I am banned from WWE."

Regarding being removed from WWE content since the public announcement that he had signed with AEW, Jericho named some videos on Xavier Woods' official WWE video game YouTube channel, UpUpDownDown, as well as some references on the WWE Network original series, The Edge & Christian Show.

"I know that they had to take some videos down from UpUpDownDown of me playing," said Jericho. "They edited some stuff from The Edge & Christian Show that had my name on it [as well]."
