• Chris Jericho Reveals Vince McMahon’s Strange Rule From Mid-2000s

During a recent appearance on Rich Eisen Show, Old School WWF Legend and AEW Superstar Chris Jericho revealed a strange rule that Vince McMahon had in WWE back in the mid-2000s.

Below is what Y2J revealed:

“In the mid-2000s, Vince McMahon decided that you couldn’t be from Canada and be a babyface in the WWE, for whatever reason. ‘No one would cheer a Canadian’ was his mindset. I’m not kidding.

I was told that ‘You can’t be from Winnipeg anymore, you’re from Tampa.’ I only live in Tampa. I’m not from there. ‘Where were you born?’ Manhasset (New York). ‘Ah, sounds too country. You’re now from Manhattan, New York.’

There was a whole bunch of us that were Canadian. Edge, Christian, Val Venis, a bunch of other guys. He just decided one time, you can’t be a babyface and be from Canada. For people to really cheer you, you have to be from the United States.

It probably lasted about 6 months.”
