Chris Jericho Says D-Generation X Hated Him When He Joined WWE

Chris Jericho spoke with Sam Roberts about the heat he faced when he first joined the WWE back in 1999. He mentioned that DX and “all those guys” hated him for being confident. Jericho noted that he wasn’t completely comfortable with Vince McMahon until he returned in 2007.

“I left in ’05 because I was burnt out and I felt like I was treading water,” Jericho said. “I felt like the company was taking me for granted and I was starting to lose a lot of my powers. I was still friends with him – I could talk to him on the phone or in the office – but it wasn’t until [I returned in] ’08 where I could go in there with a legitimate idea and he would listen to it. From the Shawn [Michaels] thing, we went right into the [Rey] Mysterio thing, which was a massively successful angle that I wrote the whole f-cking thing. Then we went into the 7 on 7 NXT vs. the WWE thing, which I had a lot of influence in. Then we went into the whole CM Punk thing last year.”
