9. Chris Jericho Comments On His Verbal Altercation Incident

TMZ Sports reported the following earlier this week about WWF Legend Chris Jericho being involved in a verbal altercation:

It all went down outside Irving Plaza, where Jericho had just appeared at a tribute show for musician David Z, who was killed in a recent bus accident. Witnesses tell us multiple people approached Jericho outside the venue asking for pics and autographs — and while he obliged at first, Y2J started to get frustrated and began to turn people down. That’s when our video begins — you can see Jericho and a guy who said he was a fan yelling at each other. The fan said he was just trying to congratulate Jericho on a recent WWE match — but Chris wasn’t having it and told the guy, “F*** your a**.” More cussing ensued — and as the fan walks away, you can hear Jericho tell his friend, “These guys are f***ing pu**ies.”

You can watch the video of the altercation below:

Jericho comment on his incident and issued the following statement to TMZ Sports:

“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night. I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
