CHRIS JERICHO: Chris Jericho explains the reason why he does not wrestle in the United States

Posted on 6/13/118 by Colin Vassallo

The current IWGP Intercontinental champion Chris Jericho has
revealed that he does not wrestle in the United States at
the moment because of two simple reasons: money and respect
for Vince McMahon.

In an interview with Inside the Ropes, Jericho noted that he
pretty much rejected many offers from indie promotions and
even from New Japan Pro Wrestling for shows held in the
United States.

You should see how many indy promoters contact me Jericho
said. This is a calculated big money proposition. Im not
going anywhere else unless you want to pay six fu**ing
figures. This is where Im at. This is McGregor/Mayweather
type sh*t for me.

Apart from money issues, he also said that he doesnt feel
he can wrestle in the U.S. for now because it would feel
like a slap in the face to Vince McMahon. Jericho sought
McMahons permission before agreeing to wrestle at Wrestle
Kingdom 12 this past January even though he had no
obligation to.

Im doing all of these different things and enjoying the
freedom but still rooted in the respect for Vince McMahon
and the WWEand that goes too far over that line right now,
Jericho added.

Jericho is considered to be one of the biggest company-man
for WWE and is brought back when needed. Jericho worked the
Greatest Royal Rumble show in Saudi and even appeared at the
Raw 25 broadcast. He also revealed he was the replacement
for Shane McMahon at WrestleMania if McMahon was not going
to get medically cleared in time.
