• Vince McMahon Still “Haunted” Over Losing Chris Jericho To AEW
During a recent interview on High Spots podcast, former WWE commentator Hugo Savinovich talked about Vince McMahon’s reaction to losing Chris Jericho to All Elite Wrestling.
Below is what Hugo said:
“Chris Jericho has become one of the things that’s still affecting Vince and I think that’s why he signed that contract with Randy Orton right away, because Randy Orton was pushing the envelope of saying to WWE if you don’t sign me I’m going to be a free agent and guess what Tony Khan is going to give me that money.
Vince is still haunted with not giving Jericho a better offer and he’s not going to make that same mistake again.
I know Vince, he is a visionary and he is not going to make that same mistake again of not giving the right talent that he wants to keep the money they need before somebody else like Tony Khan and Cody signs them up.”
