• WWF Legend Reveals How Vince McMahon Helped Him Avoid An Arrest After An Incident At WWE Event
During a recent appearance on Orlando’s 101.1 WJRR, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho revealed how Vince McMahon helped him avoid an arrest after an incident at a WWE Live Event.
Below is the story:
“About 6-7 years ago, I kicked a flag in Brazil which is a felony, which no one told us beforehand. Like, it’s really bad. Long story short, the army wanted me arrested and taken to the jungle prison. He (Vince) was really mad. Very furious.
He actually suspended me for it. But in the meantime he got me out of there within hours. He’s like ‘you’re getting out of there now.’ So we went straight to the airport, got on the plane and took off and went to some other country. We weren’t supposed to leave until the next day and he said ‘you’re leaving now.’”
Jericho then talked about Vince McMahon’s nature:
“Obviously a very intimidating guy, just by all the stuff he has accomplished, but great guy though. Really cool guy. Loves AC/DC, that’s his favorite band. Anybody that loves AC/DC is cool automatically. Just a good guy and very driven, very intense.
Intimidating, but also he’s great to work for. I really enjoy throwing ideas around with each other, butting heads in a creative way. He’s the boss. You know he’s the boss, but he doesn’t rule with an iron fist. He doesn’t have to because he has the respect of everybody that works for him.”
