"Armbar!"Chris Jericho (real name Chris Irvine) is a professional wrestler with a long, storied career spanning two decades and several promotions around the world, and frontman of the heavy metal band Fozzy.Jericho's rise to stardom in the industry began in WCW, where the "Lionheart" became a hit with the fans (particularly because of hilarious promo work), holding several Cruiserweight Championships and feuding with the likes of Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio Jr, and Juventud Guerrera. When Jericho tried to move into the main event, however, his attempts were blocked by the bookers; a planned feud with Goldberg was aborted, and Jericho realized he'd never make it to the main event in the company. In 1999, Jericho left WCW and jumped ship to the WWF; his debut at the end of the "Countdown to the Millennium" - interrupting a promo by The Rock, of all people! - is considered one of his Crowning Moments of Awesome.In the decade since, Jericho has accomplished a lot - in addition to holding the Intercontinental Championship a record nine times, he's also a multiple-time world champion, a multiple-time tag team champion, and he was the first man to hold the WWE's Undisputed Championship (the unification of the WWE Championship and the WCW Championship), which he accomplished by beating The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin in back-to-back matches. He hosted a short-lived game show on ABC and was multi-champ hottie Cheryl Burke's partner on Dancing with the Stars. (He did surprisingly well, lasting until week six.) He also competed in Genichiro Tenryu's WAR (Wrestle Association R) promotion, FMW, SMW, CMLL, the CWA (Catch Wrestling Association) in Austria/Germany, ECW, AAA, Stampede Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling and other promotions in Mexico and Canada. He also stars in a web series called But I'm Chris Jericho!Per usual, That Other Wiki has a great writeup of his extensive career, both in and out of the ring.
