Former WWE Champion Chris Jericho recently spoke with Monster to talk about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about his relationship with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. Here is what he had to say:
“The relationship I have with Vince now—and I think of us as friends—took years to develop. When you’re working with someone who’s at the top of their game, they are really complex, and it’s not possible to gain their trust and respect overnight. You can’t rush it.
“It helps to put yourself in the shoes of someone who’s been a boss for a long time. How many people have worked for him in the past, and how many have not worked out? He, or she, is looking for someone who will stand the test of time. So try to be that person.”
