Does Chris Jericho miss WWE?
During his recent Q&A Session on Saturday Night Special, Chris Jericho was asked whether he misses Vince McMahon's WWE. To that, Jericho said that he did and delved on what he missed about the Vince McMahon run company.
Honestly, my interactions with Vince. I really, really enjoyed working for Vince McMahon because he challenged me, he challenged me as a professional. He challenged me on my ideas. It wasn't easy and at the end of the day is Vince's ice cream shop, as Pat [Patterson] would say, and you're living in it."
Chris Jericho on his relationship with Vince McMahon
Chris Jericho further noted his relationship with Vince McMahon and how the WWE Chairman trusted him.
“I never had a problem with Vince. I mean, obviously, you have problems with your boss when he's twenty-five years older and, you know, whatever it is... I was always a little bit intimidated by Vince, but he always challenged me. I got to a certain point after the Shawn Michaels feud in 2008-2009, he trusted my judgment. Nine times out of ten, he would go with what I wanted to do. One time out of ten, he wouldn't [and] that would piss me off! Like, 'give me the courtesy, at least trying this.'” (h/t Fightful)
