Check out the highlights or listen to the full podcast below.

Jim Ross on pitching Chris Jericho to Vince McMahon:

“He [Vince] asked ‘how tall is he?’ And you said ‘somewhere between 5’7 and 5’10” Jericho would begin. “I’m 5’10 and a half! And you knew that I was 5’10 or 5’11! Why did you give him the low end of saying 5’7 to 5’10? What was the strategy on that?”

Jim Ross wanting to surprise Vince McMahon:

“I wanted to give him a pleasant surprise when he found out you’re taller” Ross would reveal. “I knew how tall you where of course. And I had studied your matches. Japanese matches, Mexican matches. I studied you and I knew that you would fit [in WWF]. Your age was perfect, you know? And another thing about you Chris? Your durability was astounding.  You always wrestled physically. And that’s what I told Vince, ‘he’s a tough little bastard.’”

Jim Ross on incident between Chris Jericho and Goldberg:

“And then of course, when you face front facelocked Goldberg back in the locker room? That I witnessed. He [Vince] looked at as a source of pride. ‘My 5’10 star, he stood up for himself!’ Then I would say to Vince ‘there you don’t have to worry about Chris, he won’t be pushed around.”
