Chris Jericho is undoubtedly one of the best Superstars to have held the Intercontinental Championship.
He holds the record for the most number of reigns with the WWE Intercontinental Title and the title was a big deal to him. However, it seems Vince McMahon did not see it that way.
While speaking with Inside The Ropes, Chris Jericho told a story of him not wanting to work with Fandango at WrestleMania 29.
During that conversation with Vince McMahon, Jericho was trying to get out of the match by offering to do something else. He said he would go after the Intercontinental Championship and win the title for the 10th time. Then McMahon said something: “nobody cares about the f*cking Intercontinental Championship.”
‘’What about Wade Barrett? I’m a nine-time Intercontinental Champion. I could go for my tenth victory, the record-breaking tenth Intercontinental Championship.’ [Jericho asked McMahon]. [Vince McMahon] goes, ‘Oh nobody cares about the f*cking Intercontinental Championship,’ and I said, ‘Well they don’t care about Fandango either,’ and he goes, ‘That’s your job is to make them care’ and I said, ‘So I can’t change your mind?’ He goes, ‘No’ so I hung up on him. I hung up on my billionaire boss because I wasn’t happy with what he wanted me to do, prima donna Jericho in the hiz.”
