Chris Jericho is a true legend in the pro wrestling world, being part of the industry for over three decades now. He has helped out every company he has been a part of as well. Jericho also accused Brock Lesnar of using homophobic slurs during a backstage confrontation.
Le Champion and Brock Lesnar had an argument backstage at WWE SummerSlam in 2016 after Lesnar’s match against Randy Orton. Lesnar busted open Orton the hard way, leaving him in a pool of blood.
While speaking on the True Geordie podcast, Chris Jericho recalled his backstage confrontation with Lesnar. Jericho then claimed that Lesnar used homophobic slurs that would have gotten him canceled in this day and age.
“I was in Gorilla [Position] and I was f*cking angry about it and Brock [Lesnar] came through, and he saw me angry about it and decided he wanted to challenge me. And we got into a little bit of an issue, but I was like, ‘F*ck this guy, I don’t give a sh*t how big he is. I don’t f*cking care. It’s wrong.’ I will fight to the death, I will stand up to what I believe in till death.
I remember being literally nose-to-nose with the guy [Lesnar], and he was laughing – and he was actually saying things that would probably get him canceled if I said them, like homophobic terms you shouldn’t be saying.”
Triple H and Vince McMahon came between the two and pulled them apart. Currently, Chris Jericho is feuding with Eddie Kingston and the Blackpool Combat Club in AEW. We’ll have to see how their feud will continue in the coming weeks.
