WWE Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho is in the news today as the wrestler was arrested yesterday and taken into custody for allegedly being drunk in public, along with another wrestler, Greg “Hurricane” Helms. Reports suggest that the two were fighting in a cab at a gas station in Crescent Springs, Kentucky, and that led to someone calling the police to complain.

But this is not Chris’ first encounter with the law. Last year, in February to be exact, he punched a woman, after fans surrounded him and yelled at him due to his loss the night before, but no charges were made.

Our dear hottie Wrestler was born on November 9, 1970 in Ontario, Canada and raised in NY, and his real name is Christopher Keith Irving. He chose Jericho from the album ‘Wall of Jericho’ from the metal band from Germany “Helloween”. His father is the famous former hockey player for the Bruins, Rangers and Los Angeles Kings, Ted Irvine.

He started wrestling before he reached 20, his training began at the Half Brothers School, his first fight was in 1990, against his pal Lance Storm. These two later became “Sudden Impact”. He began his wrestling tours in Canada, Japan and Mexico and won the NWA World Middleweight Championship titles during 1991-1994.

Chris made his debut with the World Wrestling Federation in 1999, against “Road Dogg” who defeated Chris due to disqualification.

In 2000 Chris defeated Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit at Wrestlemania in a triple threat match, Jericho ended up winning the WWF International Championship, but lost it at Raw against Eddie Guerrero.

In 2005, after having been defeated by John Cena several times, he announced he was leaving the WWE for the moment, but certainly was going back. He made his official comeback in November 2007.

Chris also has an out of the ring career – he was in the music band Fuzzy and collaborated with Iron Maiden, had a reality show called ‘Redemption Song’, wrote a book named ‘A Lion’s Tale, and guest starred in Xero Control.

He has three kids, Sierra and Cheyenne (twins) and son Ash with his wife Jessica Lee Lockhart.
