Four Reasons Why Chris Jericho Will Always Be Welcome at WWE

Christopher Keith Irvine, a.k.a., Chris Jericho. Y2J. The Man of the Millennium. The Man of 1,004 Holds (take that, Dean Malenko). The Ayatollah of Rock-and-Rollah. Moongoose McQueen.  The Brewer of Jericohol. The Living Legend of the ring (even though Larry Zbyszko threatened to sue the WWE over both the phrase and t-shirt; HEY, a Zbyszko reference!).  

After a two-year absence, Jericho returned to the squared-circle of the WWE this year, and wrestling fans are getting a real treat by having this man return to full-time action.  Whether he took time off for sabbatical, recording and touring with his band (Fozzy), going all Hollywood on us, or even after his most recent suspension due to a “flag incident” in Brazil, Y2J is finally back and is part of the WWE Championship Money in the Bank ladder match this weekend.  The Bleacher Report’s Giulio Romano gives four reasons in particular of why Jericho has such a high position in the company and will always be welcomed back to WWE with open arms, ranging from his steady climb up the ladders of ECW, WCW and WWE, his constantly evolving character and being a charismatic and lovable hero AND villain, his humble “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” attitude toward the business, to his ability to adapt to any other place within the company (on camera and behind-the-scenes).

I strongly recommend that everyone read this article; any story focused on Y2J is definitely worth spending a few minutes of your time.

  1. Jericho is my all time favorite. I got both his books and the guy is the most humble man in the business for the level of stardom he has acheived. He is one of the few big stars (probably with Rock and Flair) that has no problem whatsoever putting anyone over. I have never read a story about Jericho complaining when it comes time to lose a match. I have so much personal respect for the man.
