Chris Jericho is the son of 1970’s hockey star Ted Irvine. Aspiring to be both a rock star and a wrestler, Jericho worked Europe, Mexico and Japan throughout the early 90’s before joining WCW. He would then join WWE in 1999 and two years later became the first Undisputed WWE Champion in history, defeating The Rock and Steve Austin on the same night. After nearly two decades in WWE, Jericho stunned the world by first going to New Japan in 2018 and then joining upstar All Elite Wrestling in 2019, where he would become their inaugural world champion. Outside of the ring Jericho did become a rock star, serving as the lead singer for the band Fozzy.
