Chris Jericho says Kofi Kingston and Vince McMahon had a legit physical confrontation

Chris Jericho will be on Wrestling Observer radio this week (Wednesday, I believe). He will be discussing his new book, lots of cool WWE stories, and more. There’s the story in the book about Mickey Rourke brining Frank Shamrock to WrestleMania because he thought Jericho would shoot on him. There’s also a story about Kofi Kingston and Vince McMahon getting into a physical confrontation on the WWE corporate jet.

For those wondering, here’s what happened between Kingston and McMahon:

In the book, Jericho claims that while on a plane Vince McMahon made a snide remark to Kofi Kingston saying, “Maybe one day you’ll get over,” a comment which visibly disturbed Kingston.

As Jericho and Kingston exited the plane, Jericho told Kofi that he had to go back and challenge him to a fight. At first Kingston seemed to think it was a rib, but Jericho knowing McMahon’s personality was totally serious about the situation.

Kingston took Jericho’s advice and got back on the plane and asked Vince McMahon if he had a problem with him. The two traded verbal barbs back and forth until Vince McMahon shot in for a double leg takedown out of nowhere and he and Kingston subsequently wrestled around. McMahon has been known to test his amateur wrestling against the likes of Kurt Angle, also repeatedly attempting to take him down on a flight. McMahon finally got up and laughed the situation off, with McMahon liking that Kingston stood up for himself.

The interview will be up on You can get Jericho’s book in bookstores or on Amazon by clicking here.
