• Chris Jericho Recalls The Time WWE Wrestlers ‘F*cking Whipped A$$’ Of Football Fans & MMA Fighters
During his Saturday Night Special, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was asked about his favourite memory in the UK. He recalled the time the WWE wrestlers got into a brawl with ‘Skinhead’ football fans and shoot fighters.
Below is how he described the incident:
“I think Triple H was supposed to sign an autograph for somebody and he didn’t. He got in the elevator and split. And this guy got really mad and started a fight with one of the guys. And we were in the middle of a long tour.
You do not mess with the boys. It was Wrestlers vs. Skinheads vs. MMA Fighters. Let me just say this. The wrestlers whipped f*cking a$$.
I remember Viscera was just sitting on a guy (hands crossed). He’s just sitting on a guy and I was going around just like, how many shirts can I rip off? I’m going to rip off your shirt, rip off your shirt and I think Benoit had one of the guys in the crossface and he was laughing. It was just this big giant brawl.”
Jericho said that it was a great fight and it ended when the cops arrived to pull everyone apart.
