These things do happen. Wrestlers are larger than life characters who get into physical altercations every single week on television. That can make for some very compelling moments, but there are also things that happen with them behind the scenes which can be all the more interesting. That seems to have been the case with two prominent modern wrestlers.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW’s Chris Jericho and WWE’s MVP got in a verbal altercation at a hotel in Houston on May 18. Around 1am, MVP arrived at the hotel and ran into Jericho and Matt Hardy. The incident did not get physical but was said to be “tense”, with Jericho getting to an elevator and saying he “doesn’t fight jobbers” as MVP was screaming in the lobby. It is not clear what caused the issue or if the two have resolved it since. MVP has commented on the situation on Twitter, suggesting that the incident took place but that the details were wrong.

Opinion: This is something that you see happen every so often in wrestling but it always feels strange. I have no idea what happened between the two of them but it certainly seems that there is something going on with them. Hopefully it gets smoothed over as this feels like a pretty serious situation. At least it didn’t get worse, though it seemed like it almost did.

What do you think of the two of them? What should both do next on their respective shows? Let us know in the comments below.
