“What he did to Jericho was exactly what you and I talked about last week, and is exactly what Jericho has documented. Jericho says he was considered” our boy “when we left. Used to go and he took big steps backwards, and you see that right here. We’re just left in September, it’s January. The person the woman (Chyna) finishes is Jericho and then, hurt. To add insult to, he ends up right after that. It was all about the woman finishing Jericho. They are so young with stuff like that, they never change. They always like this Are. “
Vince Russo says that Chyna should have eliminated more stars from the Royal Rumble
