Chris Jericho discussed Vince McMahon’s reaction when he found out that TNA was going to go head to head with RAW a few years back. According to Jericho, Vince believes that they never stood a chance because WWE is too big.

“[Vince] said, ‘take me out of the equation. You can’t compete with WWE at this point. It’s too much of a machine, it’s too much of a brand, it’s just the way it is.’ And he’s right. You’re not gonna [beat] the WWE. You can compete, carve out your own niche, yes. But I also believe that [WWE] has now become entrenched in Americana, pop culture, and the world. It’s not gonna go anywhere.”

TNA’s move to Monday night’s was very short lived and only lasted a nine weeks.
