Chris Jericho Reveals the Time He Almost Got Suspended by Stephanie McMahon in WWE

Chris Jericho, known as Y2J during his WWE days, has had an illustrious career that’s spanned multiple wrestling franchises. However, he recently opened up about a close call with suspension due to his in-ring antics that didn’t sit well with Stephanie McMahon.

The incident dates back to Jericho’s feud with DX in 2009 when he was famously hit in the eye by one of DX’s glowsticks, all while riling up the audience with his trash talk.

Although the scene seemed thrilling, it posed real safety concerns, and it was none other than Stephanie McMahon, who was just another wrestler in WWE at the time, wanting to suspend him for the incident.


Jericho handled the situation in his characteristic style. He sent a taped message to his boss, Vince McMahon, Stephanie’s father, and revealed his stance on the matter. Jericho recalled, “I got heat out there. This is my job. This is what I’m here to do. At the end of the night, the babyface beat me. What’s the problem? You’re going to fine and suspend me for getting heat? Bring it on.”

Stephanie McMahon, on her part, has gone on to hold various positions within Corporate WWE and has been involved in numerous storylines, both alongside and against her father, Vince McMahon, and her husband, Triple H, among other WWE superstars.


Where is former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho now?

In the wrestling world, Chris Jericho has continued to make waves, particularly in All Elite Wrestling (AEW). However, his world recently took an unexpected turn with the breakup of his Jericho Appreciation Society, a moment that unfolded painfully in the middle of the ring.

During this emotional breakup, Don Callis, Jericho’s colleague from their WWE days in the ‘nasty nineties,’ called him out on stage and proposed the idea of Jericho joining his new faction. Jericho’s response? “maybe.”

As Jericho’s journey in the world of wrestling continues, fans are left to wonder what’s next for the wrestling icon in this ever-evolving storyline.
