Chris Jericho Says Vince McMahon Thought He Was Bluffing About Taking The Deal With AEW

Professional wrestling legend and top AEW Star Chris Jericho recently took to an episode of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, where he spoke about a number of topics such as how former WWE CEO Vince McMahon thought he was bluffing when he told Vince about the deal AEW was offering him.

Chris Jericho said:

“I did give WWE a chance though, I did give them a chance. I said, here’s the offer that I’ve gotten from this new company, and I was told to, Vince said, ‘Take it.’ I think he thought I was bluffing. And when I took it, then about a week later he’s like, ‘You took it?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘Can you get out of it?’ I said, ‘No! You told me to take it, why would I try to get out of it?”

Chris Jericho also spoke about how Vince McMahon was asking him stuff that couldn’t be discussed such as TV deals and the person bringing guys into AEW.

Chris Jericho said:

“And then he’s like, who is kind of bringing in guys, who is the broker to get guys to come in, that’s what Vince is asking me, and it’s like, I’m thinking, well, it’s me, but I don’t want to tell him that. And he’s asking me all these, what kind of TV deal, you can’t ask me these questions!”
