Chris Jericho sent a message to WWE, ROH, and Impact Wrestling on Twitter last night. He also took the time to take a crack at Brock Lesnar’s physical condition.
Chris Jericho Brock Lesnar Confrontation in 2016
Jericho and Lesnar were involved in an altercation backstage at SummerSlam 2016. Lesnar defeated Randy Orton that night and left him laying in a pool of his own blood. Jericho is believed to have confronted Lesnar (and possibly others) backstage regarding the Lesnar vs Orton match. He spoke to Chael Sonnen regarding the incident.
“Not to get into specifics … it was basically between me and Brock, but we did have a little bit of a brouhaha, shall we say,” Jericho said.
“I just thought the finish of that match was very brutal and very violent, and I just didn’t know if Randy was OK. I was checking on Randy, my friend. We’ve always been pretty close,” he continued.
“I said something and (Lesnar) said something and next thing you know we’re nose to nose kind of yelling at each other. And (it) diffused fairly quickly.”
“Listen, let’s make no bones about this, Brock is a trained fighter, and he’s a beast. I’m not the type of person to back down from anybody — to my detriment. Hothead fire off and we were in each other’s face and that happens sometimes. I guess I kind of have a reputation for it too, I never back down. In the case of guys his size, they think people are just going to wilt, and most people do … I’m glad he didn’t eat me. Basically, there was a face-to-face confrontation and I’ll leave the rest between the two of us.”
