• Vince McMahon Tried To Get Chris Jericho Out Of His AEW Contract
On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, WWF Legend Chris Jericho revealed that Vince McMahon was first fine with him signing with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling promotion in 2019, but then tried to get him out of the contract before AEW even started.
Here’s what Y2J said:
“I did give WWE a chance though, I did give them a chance. I said here’s the offer that I’ve gotten from this new company and I was told, Vince says to take it.
I think he thought I was bluffing, I took it. Then about a week later, Vince was like ‘you took it?’. I said ‘yeah’, he said, ‘can you get out of it?’. ‘No! You told me to take it. Why would I try and get out of it?’
He was asking me like ‘what kind of a TV deal have they got?’, I was like ‘you can’t ask me these questions!’”
Jericho wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) from 1999 to 2005 and again from 2007 until 2010 and from 2011 till 2018.
In late 2001, he became the first ever Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, thus unifying the by far most prestigious World Titles on the planet, the WWF Championship and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 69th birthday of Old School WWF Legend “Adorable” Adrian Adonis (Real name: Keith Franke Jr.).
Adrian Adonis formed ‘The East-West Connection’ with Jesse “The Body” Ventura and ‘The North-South Connection’ with “Dirty” Dick Murdoch, before adapting the queer gimmick of “Adorable” Adrian Adonis, which led to the legendary match with fellow WWF Legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper at WrestleMania III, that resulted in Adonis getting his head shaved.
He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which might actually happen as part of the annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
September 15, 1953 – July 4, 1988
