WWF Legend Says Vince McMahon Wanted Kevin Owens To Lose Weight In 2017

Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens WrestleMania 33 Rematch at Payback 2017

• WWF Legend Says Vince McMahon Wanted Kevin Owens To Lose Weight In 2017

During a recent interview with talkSport, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho was asked to comment on Vince McMahon being upset at Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 33.

At WrestleMania 33 in 2017, Owens defeated Jericho to win the United States Championship.

Here’s what Jericho said about it:

“He told Kevin it was the worst match in WrestleMania history (laughs). I never heard anything about that.

When I came through, Vince went (thumbs up), so I think he was on Kevin’s case at the time. I think he was going through a phase where he thought maybe Kevin had some extra weight that he wanted him to lose or wasn’t happy with his work as a heel.

Kevin is a very unique performer in that he’s amazing and he’s a bigger guy. Who cares? Mick Foley was a bigger guy, Vader was a bigger guy, Bam Bam Bigelow was a bigger guy. Didn’t affect their work, they were still great performers and Kevin is one of those guys.

For whatever reason, Vince goes through phases where you just get stuck in his craw and he gets pissed off at anything you do and maybe that was one of his reasons. But yeah…the worst match in WrestleMania history?! I was like ‘have you not seen Giant Gonzalez vs The Undertaker!’

[Our match] was great. And then the next match we had at the following pay-per-view was amazing as well.

I wasn’t happy with [the WrestleMania 33] match because they had us on second at that WrestleMania which was the writing on the wall that they didn’t care about the feud.”
