• Chris Jericho Says Vince McMahon Was A Little Disappointed In Him For Not Appearing Fully Naked In The Ring
On the latest edition of Talk Is Jericho, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho recalled the time when Vince McMahon wanted him to be fully naked in the ring.
Below is what Jericho said:
“I remember that one week [when] The Dudley Boyz stole Christian and I’s clothes from the locker room and then we go out to the ring in towels and then Spike Dudley comes up and pulls our towels off and we’re naked.
This is Michael Hayes telling me this and I’m like ‘how are we going to be naked?’ He goes, ‘you’re really going to be naked.’ I’m like, ‘what? The f*ck I am, there’s no way!’ Then Vince comes in and says, ‘hey pal, I heard you’ve got an issue’.”
Jericho said that he had an issue with it because there were children in the audience, but McMahon replied “Well, you’re gonna be naked.”
The angle was supposed to have Bubba Ray Dudley pouring out a bunch of lingerie from a bag for Jericho. McMahon was a little disappointed in him for not liking the idea.
