Chris Jericho’s name brings a lot of attention to any card that he’s on. It stands to reason that he would get a lot for main eventing a show, but you’d be wrong.
One fan remembered that he watched Dean Ambrose wrestle Chris Jericho at a WWE live event on this day a few years ago. Y2J tweeted back at this fan because he remembers the gig in Asheville as well. He only made $750 for the night.
I got paid 750 bucks that night!
Ambrose and Jericho worked the Asheville North Carolina show in the main event that night. Their “Asheville Street Fight” might have brought a lot of fans through the gate, but WWE wasn’t about cutting big checks for house shows.
