** 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

* 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.

* Although he was a heel and a thorough {{Jerkass}} at the time, it is worth mentioning 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.

* Established himself as a BadAss backstage after trapping [[ImplacableMan Goldberg]] in a front face lock. (Reports differ as to how long Jericho had Goldberg in the hold, and whether he let it go on his own, was pulled off by other wrestlers/security, or Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} broke out of it, though Jericho mentioned the fight in his second autobiography and says some of the boys had to pull him off a limp Goldberg.)

* January 9, 2017: With aid from Kevin Owens (in a 2 on 1 handicap match), Chris Jericho knocks off Roman Reigns to capture the United States Championship, the last title he had yet to win in the WWE and making him eligible for the current Grand Slam championship (winning a World, Intercontinental, Tag, and United States championship).

* Chris Jericho holds the record for most Intercontinental championship reigns, 9 separate reigns as of June 7, 2009. To put that in perspective, the next highest number of IC title reigns is 6, shared by Wrestling/JeffJarrett and Wrestling/RobVanDam, neither of whom will probably ever be in a WWE ring ever again (for various reasons), much less be IC champ again.

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

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

* An OffscreenMomentOfAwesome for Jericho: Following ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2016'''s Orton/Lesnar finish ([[spoiler:Lesnar beating Orton by TKO when he busted Orton open the hard way]]), he went to check on Orton. He then confronted Michael Hayes about the finish, asking if it was a shoot or not. Hayes says nothing and Jericho proclaims "Bullshit". Brock comes in from behind the curtain and confronts Jericho about it and Jericho ''backs Lesnar against a wall''. Chris was ready to fight ''[[Wrestling/BrockLesnar Brock Fucking Lesnar]]'' if he'd hurt Orton intentionally. Holy shit. Doubles as heartwarming with Jericho showcasing that much concern for a fellow wrestler.
