• Chris Jericho Says Vince McMahon Won’t Get In Any Real Trouble, Says What Vince Did Isn’t Illegal
During an interview on the True Geordie podcast, WWF Legend & current AEW Superstar Chris Jericho talked about the ongoing investigation against Vince McMahon, who had affairs with multiple women in the company.
Jericho doesn’t think Vince is going to get into any real trouble. This interview was most likely recorded before the latest updates released by The Wall Street Journal.
Below is what Y2J said:
“Is it a surprise in any industry when it happens? When you look at it, it’s really not illegal. He had an affair, paid the lady off to not say anything, and moved on. It’s almost like, ‘Okay, and?’
People want to jump on it but there is still always an undertone of ‘it’s wrestling. Oh, it’s just wrestling,’ If you look, that story came out with a bang, and then you really haven’t heard anything about it since.
If this was Hollywood, with Harvey Weinstein, that sort of thing…the difference between that is, he was holding women back from getting gigs, Harvey Weinstein. ‘Either bang me or you don’t get the starring role.’
This has never been said in Vince’s thing. It was a mutual acknowledgement of the affair, he paid the lady to say nothing, and she took the money. I really know Vince well and it sucks that happened, it sucks that he did it, but is anything really going to happen from it? I don’t think so.”
That’s Vince McMahon. I think it’ll come and go. Is it morally right? Absolutely not. Is it illegal? No. Is it something that is going to get him into real trouble? I don’t think so.
Once again, unfortunately, ‘Oh, it’s just Vince McMahon, it’s just wrestling, of course he’s going to do that.’ Those things come and go, they happen, it’s too bad, but I really think it doesn’t matter in the long run.
6 Months from now, I’ll either be right or I’ll be wrong.”
