Vince McMahon has not fought in the WWE in a while, but Chris Jericho says Kofi Kingston once got into a real fight with the boss while on a plane. Unfortunately, no one whipped out their smartphone to record this scuffle on video, but he is telling the world about the incident through his new book Best in the World (At What I Have No Idea).
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Alberto del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, is claiming that Vince McMahon’s reign is over, and that only Triple H’s “toys” matter in the grand scheme of things. Chris Jericho also recently defended the WWE management decisions, claiming that the WWE is not dropping the ball in regards to Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family split story line. Of course, Bray is already teasing the WWE Universe, so who knows what will happen next.
Chris Jericho was probably wondering the same thing when Vince McMahon reportedly made a snide remark to Kofi Kingston, saying, “Maybe one day you’ll get over.” They happened to be on a plane at the time, and as Kingston and Jericho departed the airplane the, latter wrestler noticed Kofi was noticeably disturbed by the comment. So Jericho decided to be an instigator and told Kington to challenge McMahon to a fight. Kofi thought it was just a rib at first, but then he realized he better be serious about the situation, and returned to confront the WWE boss man.
According to Wrestling Inc., this is how the fight between and Vince McMahon and Kofi Kingston went down.
“Kingston took Jericho’s advice and got back on the plane and asked Vince McMahon if he had a problem with him. The two traded verbal barbs back and forth until Vince McMahon shot in for a double leg takedown out of nowhere and he and Kingston subsequently wrestled around. McMahon has been known to test his amateur wrestling against the likes of Kurt Angle, also repeatedly attempting to take him down on a flight. McMahon finally got up and laughed the situation off, with McMahon liking that Kingston stood up for himself.”
Well, that’s certainly a different style of corporate management. I’m certain Vince McMahon would love to handle the situation in the same manner with certain WWE stock holders right about now.
