Dave Meltzer was a recent guest on Chris Jericho’s Talk is Jericho podcast. Jericho asked Meltzer about his relationship with WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon,

“I didn’t really have anything with Vince for several years; but, whenever things got bad publicity wise, my relationship with Vince usually would get good. Steroid trial era, I talked with him fairly often. The company was really good with me as far as data, questions, anything: direct line to Vince. His secretary would give me answers to any questions…for years. Then it fell apart at one point and I would say that the reason was the war with WCW and when they were starting to lose in the war, they wanted their side to be sympathetic.”

Jericho asked Meltzer why there would be a falling out during the Monday Night War and Meltzer replied,

“I don’t know. When they don’t need you they don’t need you.”

Meltzer also was invited to meet Vince McMahon in Connecticut and he remembers the encounter not being that big of a deal and claims to have never been in awe of the WWE CEO. Meltzer also revealed the current state of his relationship with Vince McMahon and the WWE,

“I probably haven’t talked with him [Vince] in a couple of years. As far as with the company I email them for questions every day, every couple days, sometimes multi times a day.”

Meltzer also revealed that he has sources within the WWE and that some of the information he receives is directly authorized by Vince McMahon and/or Triple H.
