• Vince McMahon Wanted Chris Jericho To Get Out Of His AEW Contract

During a recent edition of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho revealed that Vince McMahon asked him if he could get out of his AEW contract after he had signed it.

Below is what Jericho said:

“I’m not in AEW because I was a rebel. I’m with AEW because Vince went, ‘go.’ And then, when I went, he went, ‘did you sign the contract?’ I said, ‘well, yeah.’ He said, ‘can you get out of it?’ ‘No! You told me to sign it!’

But [McMahon] had the opportunity to stop it like he did with [Scott Hall], which is very interesting to me because 23 years later, he made the same [mistake].

I love Vince.”
