It seems that Vince McMahon just can't help himself, even now at the grand old age of 69.
We all knew already that the Owner of the WWE loved to be in complete control of absolutely everything and will make changes on a whim just minutes before a show, and now we have another example of it.
On the newest edition of the Talk is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho revealed that he wasn't originally supposed to be working with Randy Orton at the recent Night of Champions Pay-Per-View.
Rollins to Randy
Instead, he was supposed to work with Seth Rollins until Vince McMahon, of course, changed his mind:
"Night of Champions, had a great match with Randy Orton. I really feel like the last couple weeks, between the cage match with Bray Wyatt and the match with Randy Orton at Night of Champions, were two of my best matches that I had on this run coming back," Jericho said.
"Originally, I was supposed to work with Seth Rollins at Night of Champions. Vince changed it to Randy Orton and we had a really, really cool great chemistry. I love how he works. He's such a careful worker. His timing is immaculate, his selling is great. He's very over, he's got a lot of moves that are over so it really makes it a big difference to be in the ring with a pro like that. And we had a great finish, I really enjoyed it...I think that was a great finish, a great surprise, and a great way for me to end my WWE run."
As Jericho says, it actually did work out well in the end. Jericho vs. Orton was a strong match on a solid show and reminded us that wrestlers don't need feuds and backstories to put on a performance that fans invest in.
Jericho went on to say that he'll almost surely be back in the WWE sometime soon, giving plenty of credence to the WrestleMania rumors currently going around.
