* Although he was a heel and a thorough {{Jerkass}} at the time, it is worth mentioning [[Wrestling/{{Unforgiven}} Unforgiven 2008]]. After a violent feud with Wrestling/ShawnMichaels that included Jericho socking Michaels's wife in the face, it all came to a head at Unforgiven 2008, where Jericho withstood an enraged Shawn's NoHoldsBarredBeatdown in an "Unsanctioned Street Fight". It was so bad that the ref simply called for the bell while Jericho was locked in a submission, completely out cold. But this isn't the awesome part: later in the night Wrestling/CMPunk was assaulted backstage during an interview, which took him out of the Championship Scramble main event. The match itself proceeded as planned until what was supposed to be Punk's entrance...and instead of Punk, out stumbles Chris Jericho, who inserted himself into the match. Despite all the punishment he suffered earlier, ''he '''won''' the match'', which marked the beginning of his first World Heavyweight Championship reign.

** Considering the Goldberg entry above, one may not find it so incredulous that Jericho could legitimately beat Lesnar.

* Much has to be said of Jericho's character reinventions over the course of his career, especially since his 2007 return. His transition the following year into a emotionless {{Heel}} to a cocky veteran on both sides of the spectrum to put over younger talent and his more recent stuff with Kevin Owens and the List of Jericho, it cannot be emphasized how much he can adapt to the times, avoid being stale and fill almost any role near flawlessly.

* Another CMOA for Chris Jericho is the sheer number of championships he's won over the course of his career. Between ECW, WCW, and WWE Jericho has won a staggering 32 championships. ECW: 1 TV Championship. WCW: 1 TV Championship and 4 Cruiserweight Championships. WWE: 9 IC Championships, 5 World Tag Team Championships, 2 WWE Tag Team Championships, 1 European Championship, 1 Hardcore Championship, 1 WWE Championship, 2 WCW World Heavyweight Championships, 3 World Heavyweight Championships, and most recently 2 United States Championships. No one in WWE has that many championships. Between full-timers, part-timers, and semi-retired wrestlers the only ones that comes close are John Cena with 25 and Jeff Hardy with 26 and that's still a good sized gap.

** Jericho would also beat both men at the next two PPV's: [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson Rock]] at the ''Royal Rumble'' and Austin at ''No Way Out''. It took GodModeSue TripleH to beat him at Wrestlemania

* In 2000, a weekly occurrence on Raw & [=SmackDown=] was Jericho insulting StephanieMcMahon for no other reason than [[ItAmusedMe he found it funny]]. Eventually, TripleH got sick of Jericho insulting his wife, so Jericho goaded him into a WWE championship match. ''And won''. Granted, TripleH forced the referee to reverse the decision before the end of the show, but the moment the referee counted three? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMFyeoVmqcg Just watch the crowd reaction]].

* When winning the Undisputed Championship in 2001, Jericho became one of eleven "Grand Slam Champions", meaning he was at different points in his career a WWE Champion, a World Tag Team Champion, an Intercontinental champion, and a European Champion. As time went on, the WWE started to recognize World Heavyweight Championship, Hardcore Championship and WWE Tag Team Championship reigns as part of the Grand Slam (ex. the Hardcore Title substitutes for the European, WHC for WWE Title, etc.), titles that Jericho has held or came to hold since their inclusion. In 2009 (by winning the WWE Tag Team title with Edge), Jericho became one of only two people in the company's history to hold every single title in the Grand Slam (the other is Wrestling/JeffHardy, who only completed this circuit in ''2017''), and because the Hardcore, European, and World Tag Team titles are inactive, '''no one''' else will '''ever''' have that distinction.

** This makes Jericho one of two people to actually hold ''both'' Grand Slam championships. The other is Wrestling/KurtAngle. And unless they resurrect the Hardcore or European titles, it's impossible to accomplish that feat. This pretty much cements Y2J as, like the back of his trunks say, the G.O.A.T
