Chris Jericho has no shortage of fantastic stories throughout his podcast, book, and other ventures. His latest publication "Best In The World (At What I Have No Idea)" is no exception, and it hit shelves this week.


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.


Jericho spares no detail or feelings in "Best In The World (At What I Have No Idea)" and even speaks candidly about threatening to punch McMahon in the face. The book is available in hardcover, paperback and on Kindle now. You can order it at this link.
