• Chris Jericho Reveals What Vince McMahon Thought Of Eddie Guerrero
During a recent edition of Talk Is Jericho podcast, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about what Vince McMahon thought of Eddie Guerrero, when Eddie arrived in the WWF as a part of The Radicalz.
Below is what Jericho said:
“When he came to WWF with [Chris] Benoit and Dean [Malenko] and Perry Saturn and Eddie came as The Radicalz, about two weeks in, I was talking to Brian Gewirtz, who was the head writer at the time, and he said, we were talking about Benoit.
‘We’ll work with Benoit – we’ll do this. We’re going to have you do something with Eddie.’ I said, ‘okay, that’s fine.’
And he says, ‘Vince says Eddie is The One’ because at the time, this was pre-Latino Heat. Eddie didn’t have that personality yet and Vince saw it two weeks in.
He said, ‘Eddie’s the star.’ I said, ‘Eddie over Benoit, over Perry, over Dean?’ He said, ‘Vince says he’s the star.’
And look what he turned into.”
