Christopher Keith Irvine is a Canadian-American professional wrestler, rock musician, actor, podcaster, entrepreneur, and author. He is more popularly known by his ring name Chris Jericho. The son of an ice-hockey player, Jericho has always implemented his inherent confrontational attitude in every facet of his life. His interest in professional wrestling was kindled rather early as he grew up attending the local AWA shows and watching wrestler Owen Hart on TV. Over the course of his 27-year career, he has wrestled for some of the top promotions in the world, including WWF/E, ECW, WCW, and NJPW, winning the WWF Championship once, the WCW/World Championship twice, and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship three times. In 1999, he formed the heavy metal band Fozzy with his friend, guitarist Rich Ward. A multi-faceted personality, he has also appeared in numerous films, theatre productions, and television shows, written multiple books, and is the owner of the cruise Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea. Regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, both on mic and in ring, he is currently wrestling for NJPW.
