WWE Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has been fired from the WWE. Jericho was reportedly involved in an argument with RAW manager Stephanie McMahon over the issue of him not being included in the upcoming Royal Rumble match for the title.
Stephanie informs him that he lost his chance to compete in the Rumble and that he’ll never compete for the World Title. Jericho says he doesn’t give a damn what she says. Stephanie tells him to give a damn about this and informs him that he’s FIRED! She walks off and Y2J is left with a blank stare.
Apparently, the argument started with Jericho telling Stephanie that she should not be calling shots around anymore as her father, Vince, will be back this week and she would lose her power.
From what I’ve heard about the whole thing, I think Jericho was not cordial with the way he talked and got the correct treatment. And this is not the first time, he’s known for an aggressive personality. Getting fired might be something that he wouldn’t have seen coming.
I guess, things would change this week only. But, for the time being… Jericho is out of WWE and his belief that ‘he’s above all’, has certainly been falsified.
