On the infamous Chris Jericho YouTube video of the fan incident: I have not seen it but I heard them talking about it last week at the show – Vince (McMahon) was kinda chuckling about it. Vince and I were talking and Jericho walked by and he said: “Watch out! Jericho will hit you! He’ll knock you right down!” Then he adds: “Especially if you’re a girl!” Everybody is having a joke about it and to me it’s not a big deal, because that used to be very prevalent in the past. We used to be able to get the fans so riled up that they literally wanted to physically attack you after the matches.  That hasn’t happened in a long time, so it’s almost like hats off to Chris Jericho – for doing his job. He’s being the best bad guy that he can be. And it’s working as he’s making the people so mad at him that they want to get physical with him themselves.

Unfortunately I don't think it had anything to do with getting heat as much as it had to do with a handful of really stupid attention-whores.  But I do find it hypocritical that in a business where both current wrestlers and fans alike worship the "old-timers" like Murdoch, Race, Kox, etc. for their toughness and penchant for getting into brawls with fans that this would be such a big story.  This was a Sunday stroll compared to the norm in the South in the '70s.

Not just the south. When I went to a show at Maple Leaf Gardens in 84 it was Paul Jones and the Assassins vs Jimmy Valiant, Rufus Jones and Dory Funk Jr. This old man sitting to my left got up when Paul Jones emerged and walked towards the ramp (we were about 8 seats to the right of the ramp) he then pulled out a knife and tried to lunge at Jones. Lucky for Jones that ramp was about 4 ft off the ground and the guy couldn't get close enough to hit him before the usher's tackled him.

But whether the incident was initiated by "legit heat" or not is one thing. The best thing to me was one of the dense bitches voice near the end saying "I didnt know he was really an asshole".   Whether they hated him before or not, they left believing by God.   LOL    The video just shows how truly fucking stupid most people are.

I bet if HHH had broken into a funeral parlor and started raping real corpses, he could've gotten the Katie Vick angle over.  Dick Murdoch would've done it to sell that angle but these kids today have no dedication.
