Chris Jericho Reveals Which DMX Song He Wanted for Double or Nothing

Last updated

AEW star Chris Jericho recently revealed the special entrance he had planned for the Double or Nothing PPV event. Jericho and the Inner Circle faced The Pinnacle in a Stadium Stampede match on the show.

“The original idea, I think [MJF] mentioned we should try and get DMX” Chris Jericho mentioned on his podcast Talk Is Jericho.

“To go back, when Max and I teamed, we tried to get Van Halen’s ’˜Running With The Devil’ and they came back and said it was $500,000 for a one-time use, which is a nice way of saying, ’˜Go f*ck your ass'” Jericho added.

“So, DMX was the idea. I asked [Chief Legal Officer Megha Parekh] to get ’˜X Gon’ Give It To Ya’” Chris Jericho then revealed. “They came back and it was for, not a huge a amount of money, but not Frank Sinatra money, which was 15 grand. It was affordable and I said I would pay for half.”

“I told Santana, ’˜I got a surprise for you. We got DMX!’ We were all excited. A couple of days before, one of our production managers is on the field with us during the Stampede and he goes, ’˜I heard we don’t have DMX’” Chris Jericho recalled.

“Then it’s a domino effect to where we were originally given permission, but the family had to sign off on it and they didn’t” ‘Le Champion’ noted.

“Once DMX was out, we were trying to find different things. We were offered Curtis Blow’s ’˜The Breaks.’ I listened and it was way too happy” the former AEW Champion concluded.
