AEW’s Chris Jericho comments on Vince McMahon scandal – Wrestling News

AEW star Chris Jericho appeared on the True Geordie podcast to talk about his career. The topics include Brock Lesnar, his inspirations, future plans, WWE, AEW, and more. Jericho was also asked to give his thoughts on the Wall Street Journal reporting on Vince McMahon paying out millions to women who worked for him at WWE. (Note: this podcast appears to have been recorded before the latest WSJ story that alleges that McMahon paid out a total of $12 million to multiple women).

Jericho was asked if he’s surprised that Vince McMahon allegedly paid out millions of dollars to women. He said, “Not really. I mean, is it a surprise in any industry when it happens? And really, you know, when you look at it, it’s really not illegal. He had an affair, paid the lady off to not say anything, and moved on. So it’s almost like, okay, and? People want to jump on it. But there’s still always an undertone of ‘its wrestling, it’s just wrestling.’ If you look, that story came out with a bang, and then you really haven’t heard anything about it since. getting gigs, Harvey Weinstein. [He would say] you either bang me or you don’t get the starring role. In Vince’s thing, there was a mutual acknowledgment of this affair and then he paid the lady to say nothing, and she took the money. So, you know, I really know Vince well, and it sucks that happened. It sucks that he did it. But is anything really gonna happen from it? I really don’t think so.”
