EXCLUSIVE: Major WWE Management Heat on Chris Jericho

Nick Paglino

We can EXCLUSIVELY report this evening that WWE management is very upset over Chris Jericho’s new role as host of an ABC "extreme" game show coming up in the new television season. A major topic today at the WWE Monday Night Raw production meeting with the producers was Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn’s take on the situation, which is that WWE Talent Relations was not fully informed about the nature of the show, and how much time Jericho would need to fulfill his obligations. The producers were told that at some point last week, WWE actually told Jericho they wanted him to back out of the show, but that Jericho calmed the situation down somewhat by week’s end. As it stands right now, Jericho is a "member in good standing" (told to us by a high level WWE source) of the Raw roster, but this will be a situation to watch as the next few months go by.
