Chris Jericho is certainly an established veteran in the world of professional wrestling. Having worked in the industry for well over three decades now, Jericho is more than aware of his own worth. He also had a terrible time working with Chyna and believes that she was not trained properly.
On the other hand, Chyna was a force to be reckoned with during her time in WWE in the late ’90s. She found great success in the company, breaking down several barriers for female wrestlers.
Although Chris Jericho is often viewed as a “clout vampire” by some people, he has had several notable rivalries throughout his career. However, he has admitted that he is not particularly fond of his feud with Chyna from 1999, despite the fact that it resulted in him winning his first WWE Intercontinental Championship.
In a recent edition of Talk Is Jericho, Jericho explained that working with Chyna was complicated, and he had some reservations about the storyline due to the challenges of portraying a romantic relationship with her. Jericho then stated that he believes she was not given proper training.
“It was very hard. She was a very special talent obviously, but she was really hard to work with. Because she had, once again, gone so far so quickly, and wasn’t really properly trained. Plus, she was under the umbrella of Triple H at the time — they were dating. So it was really hard to work with her in the ring and outside of the ring.”
WWE Superstars were instructed not to hit Chyna in the face as well. Regardless, Chris Jericho does not have that many good things to say when it comes to working with Chyna in the end.
