Chris Jericho is currently a member of the All Elite Wrestling roster, but he spent a big portion of his career working for Vince McMahon in WWE. During a recent interview with Josh Martinez, Jericho talked about the most embarrassing moment of his career, and he noted that it happened at a WWE live event while he was facing Cesaro.
“One time I was working with Cesaro in Las Vegas on a non-televised live event, a House Show if you will. I was wearing braces. As I climbed the top rope to do my comeback, my brace got caught in the top rope. I literally fell into the ring.”
According to Chris Jericho, Vince McMahon somehow got a clip of him falling into the ring and McMahon continued to show the clip for several weeks after the fall took place.
“Well, that’s embarrassing enough as it is, but for some reason, Vince McMahon got a clip of it. [He] proceeded to show it for the next like four weeks every time everyone’s in the arena going over their stuff before the show. He just thought it’d be great to just show it over and over and over again.
I’m like ‘I’m gonna slap that stupid face of yours for showing this over and over again.’ [He’s like] ‘Ahaha, it’s so funny.’ Maybe funny for you, not funny for me, and only 3000 people saw it until you kept playing it over and over and over again.”
Chris Jericho will be in action tonight at AEW All Out when he faces off against Bryan Danielson. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
