Chris Jericho sheds light on having ‘legit heat’ with WWE star

Last updated

The former WWE star Chris Jericho is currently signed with AEW and remains to be a top star of the company. However, during his time in Vince McMahon’s company he did not have the best of relationships with former World Champion Triple H. ‘The Game’ has been with WWE since 1995, and over the years he has been entailed in several backstage tiffs with the stars and ‘Le Champion’ is one of them.

Chris Jericho opens up on Triple H

On  The Kurt Angle Show, Jericho recently spoke in detail about his backstage heat with the 14-time world champion which started from his initial days in the company.

Hunter has been an influencer backstage and it has been also noted how Jericho was removed from the WrestleMania 2000 main event. The former World Champion believes that his issues with Triple H might have caused the change in his match.

He stated that his heat with Triple H emerged from multiple reasons, and there was a time when they both legitimately despised one another. Jericho claimed that Hunter with his power might ceased the rise of Jericho back in the day.

Here’s what Jericho said on

“There was a lot of politics at that time. And when I say this, it’s not from a bitter point of view or an angry point of view. It’s just the way it was. So, to come in, there was a lot of legit heat between Hunter and myself; it involved Chyna. It involved a little bit of X-Pac as well. But Hunter and I just didn’t like each other, and I think Hunter had such pull at the time, such power, that if he didn’t like me. Of course, even if he is not going out of his way to bury me to Vince, I’m sure every time my name came up, he would go, ‘Oh, that guy? Come on!’ It just was kind of the way the business worked at the time. So, I think that might have had a lot to do with it.”

Jericho was recently defeated by Eddie Kingston at AEW Revolution and on this week’s edition of Dynamite he turned heel and brutally assaulted Kingston.
