Maybe he should put himself on the List. Chris Jericho is one of the best wrestlers of all time and one of the most entertaining performers in the sport today. That being said, he’s also a human and someone who is going to lose his cool from time to time. That seems to have been the case recently in New York City.

According to TMZ, Jericho was recently in the city for a tribute to David Z, a musician who recently passed away. Jericho was asked for photos and autographs and while he initially agreed, he started to decline a bit later. This lead to a fan shouting at Jericho, who eventually swore at him, saying “F*ck your ass.” Jericho later told a friend of his that “These guys are f*cking pussies.” According to, Jericho later released a statement on the incident:

David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night. I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.

Opinion: This is a situation where context is very important. Jericho was at a memorial service for someone he seemed closed to. You can’t expect him to be in the right state of mind here and the issues with the fans, while not great, are somewhat understandable. The apology seemed legitimate enough and that’s all you can ask for.

Do you accept Jericho’s apology? When do you think he’ll be back on WWE TV? Let us know in the comments below.
