ROH World Champion Chris Jericho took to an episode of his "Talk Is Jericho" podcast, where he talked about topics such as the heat he had with Triple H when he first joined the WWE and it was all due to him having the audacity to come to WWE from WCW as well as how the heat was real and if just a single thing was done wrong you would be in trouble and they will bury you to Vince.
Chris Jericho said:
“There was a lot of animosity for real, because I had the audacity to come to WWE.” “People didn’t like it. They didn’t want WCW guys coming to WWE, because they felt we were inferior. So you could do ten things right, but if you did one thing wrong, you were under a microscope and you were in trouble. And those guys had pull, so they’d bury you to Vince.”
“I remember Triple H, when I first got there, he said ‘If you ever need anything, give me a call.'” “We were in San Jose, and I was trying to find directions to Stockton or somewhere like that. I went ‘I’ll call Triple H.He seems like a nice guy. This will be the start of our friendship.’”
“So I call him, and he’s like ‘Hello, who’s this?’ ‘It’s Chris Jericho. Do you know how to get to Stockton?’ ‘You want to know how to get to Stockton? By a f*****g map.’ And I hear this laughter in the background of X-Pac and Road Dogg. He hangs up, and I’m like ‘Well there goes that friendship down the toilet.'”
“I almost got fired about a month in.” “I got called into a meeting with Vince, JR, and Blackjack Lanza and Vince said ‘The problem with you is the drizzling s***s. You’re not worth the paper your contract is printed on. You’re green as grass.’ I was like ‘Lighten up dude.’ There was a lot of heat, shall we say.”
