On a recent episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho interviewed wrestling historian / journalist and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer.
During the show, Jericho revealed the reaction Vince McMahon had to TNA (Impact Wrestling) going head-to-head against WWE, live on Monday nights, several years ago.
"Vince] said, 'take me out of the equation. You can't compete with WWE at this point,'" said Jericho. "'It's too much of a machine, it's too much of a brand, it's just the way it is.'"
Jericho added, "And he's right. You're not gonna [beat] the WWE. You can compete, carve out your own niche, yes. But I also believe that [WWE] has now become entrenched in Americana, pop culture, and the world. It's not gonna go anywhere."
