• Chris Jericho Comments On His Real-Life Confrontation With Brock Lesnar
In the main event of SummerSlam 2016, Brock Lesnar defeated Randy Orton via TKO, after delivering brutal elbow shots to Orton’s head and busting him open.
After the show ended, Chris Jericho came to the Gorilla Position and asked WWE producer Michael “PS” Hayes if that was the planned finish.
Hayes didn’t say anything regarding the finish and this led to Jericho calling it “bullsh*t”.
Lesnar heard what Jericho said and he told him to shut up and mind his own business. But Jericho still kept asking him questions which led to Lesnar pushing him away. Jericho got in Lesnar’s face due to this and Lesnar kissed him on the forehead and said “kiss me back, pu$$y.”
Jericho was ready to fight and Lesnar put his hands behind his back and said “hit me or kiss me, b*tch”.
Triple H had to break them up but they went at it again. This led to Vince McMahon breaking them up and telling Jericho that the finish was planned and told him to be professional.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Jericho was asked about this confrontation with The Beast, and here’s what he said:
“When you get into that moment, it is what it is. You either go for it, or you put your tail between your legs and hide, and I’ve never been that type of guy.
I’m more of the type to die with boots on. So I’ve had my issues and shoots with MMA guys before, like that one with Brock Lesnar, and I survived by the skin of my teeth.”
