• “I was in 12 WrestleManias and it beat 9 of them” – Chris Jericho On His Payday For The Invasion PPV
During an appearance on The Kurt Angle Show, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about the Invasion storyline from 2001.
The WWF Invasion 2001 pay-per-view had 770,000 pay-per-view buys, which is among the highest in company’s history.
Jericho thinks this storyline could’ve gone on longer and made everyone more money as the fans were interested, but Vince McMahon wasn’t interested.
Below is what Y2J said:
“There’s a million things they could have done. They could have run that Invasion pay-per-view for a year.
The Invasion pay-per-view was the highest payoff I ever got in the WWE besides two or three WrestleManias.
I was in 12 WrestleManias and it beat 9 of them. That’s how big it was. It was a giant, giant check and it was a 10 man match. Think about that.
How much money did that Pay-Per-View make to pay the 10 guys in the main event that much?
So what if that was the first one? Vince wasn’t interested.
He’d been at war with WCW for so long. He bought it. He got a big blow off from it, and he said you’re done, and that was his goal.
He wants to kill it, squash it, end it, done. That’s what he did.”
