Chris Jericho Doesn't See The Fairness In Not Getting Paid For WWE Network Matches

Chris Jericho isn't seeing any money from the WWE Network.

On the latest episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Jericho was joined by former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang to discuss Yang's ongoing battle against WWE and how they treat talent. During the conversation, Yang once again brought up the Screen Actors Guild and how actors and actresses are treated as part of the group.

This led to Jericho wondering why he's not seeing any money from WWE Network airing his old matches.

"This has to change and it's no ill will towards WWE. The fact that they can show all of my matches on their Network that people pay for and I don't get a dime of royalty, it makes no sense. That's not how normal business, normal entertainment, and the normal world works," said Jericho. "I did 'MacGruber' ten years ago and was in it for two minutes. I still get residual checks. It's not a lot, $20, $15, $50, but I'm still getting residuals from being on that movie. Here I am with probably 100 matches on the Network and getting nothing. I don't see the fairness in that."

Jericho said he and Yang would have to talk off-air about correcting something like that.

Yang has been very outspoken in recent months regarding WWE's treatment of talent. In an interview with Chris Van Vliet, he called WWE "fucking greedy" for their practices. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
