VIDEO: Chris Jericho Involved in Verbal Altercation in New York City

According to video captured by TMZ Sports, Chris Jericho, who recently returned to WWE television this past week, was involved in a verbal altercation with a fan.

As you can see in the video below, Jericho and the gentleman exchanges expletives and continued to get in each other’s face. The report states that Jericho was in town to attend a tribute show for musician David Z. Apparently, when he was seen outside, Jericho was approached by several fans wanting autographs and photos, which Jericho denied for whatever reason.

You can watch the full video here:

Jericho did release this statement after the incident:

“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night. I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
