WWE creative in 2017 y’all

Chris Jericho was on Live Audio Wrestling and revealed that creative (including Triple H) tried to change the way Owens turned on Jericho.

Jericho: The day that we had the show, Vince wasn’t there and they tried to change it to where Kevin would just attack me. And my thing was the whole drama of revealing the list of KO and “hey how come my name’s on this” and the looking up and the feeling of oh (expletive) don’t do it, don’t do it and then he attacks me.

Jericho: I had to fight for that all day long and there was some real heated debates going on between me and Triple H and a couple of other people. I said this is the way we’re doing it. It’s the way I explained it to Vince and Paul was like “I’ll call Vince right now, he’s in a plane, I don’t care I’ll find him. I’ll send a carrier pigeon to get him”. And finally I think it was just exasperation, just do whatever you want.

​Jericho has a similar story of exasperation dealing with creative in his book as well, where Vince basically wouldn't tell him anything about what he was doing at Wrestlemania and then finally he was just like "Well, you're losing to Fandango" and then Jericho had to fight and fight and fight just to get any kind of storyline. ​I can see how the entire process would be incredibly frustrating for someone like him who takes pride in his work to the degree that he does.
