Be Careful Taking Advice from Chris Jericho and Bret Hart

WWE Hall of Famer, Bret "The Hitman" Hart appeared on Chris Jericho's podcast, Talk Is Jericho, recently.  Oddly enough both of these wrestling stars had similar situations play out with a co-worker.

Bret's is recounted below by
Bret told a story about Boris Zhukov being in the dressing room one day and talking to him about not being on the booking sheet. Bret told Boris to talk to Vince to see what was going on. After working up the courage to go into Vince's office, Boris came out holding back tears and said that Vince had told him he was not on the booking sheet because they had forgotten to tell him that he was fired. Bret tried to make the best out of the situation, telling Boris, "well at least you know... at least you get it off your chest.
The funny part being that Chris Jericho gave Gene Snitsky very similar advice and unfortunately for Snitsky it played out almost the exact same way. In the case of Snitsky he didn't return with tears in his eyes, but instead was released three days later.

Obviously, it's not funny that these guys lost their jobs, but the way that played out in both cases is kind of amusing and worth sharing.

Chris Jericho's podcast, Talk Is Jericho, is available through PodcastOne.  These stories were recapped on How Conversation With Chris Jericho May Have Expedited Gene Snitsky's WWE Release
