In the world of pro wrestling, Chris Jericho is a seven-time world champion, having won the AEW Championship, WWE Championship, WCW Championship twice and the World Heavyweight Championship three times. He is also a record nine-time Intercontinental Champion, two-time United States Champion, and the fourth WWE Grand Slam Champion.
Outside of wrestling, he is also known as the lead singer of the heavy metal band Fozzy, whose seventh album Judas was released on October 13, 2017. Judas featured the hit single of the same name, which went on to be #1 on the Sirius/XM Octane charts and spent 26 weeks on the Mainstream Rock chart, peaking at #5. Their much anticipated next album is scheduled for fall 2020.
His wildly successful podcast, ‘Talk Is Jericho’, is available for download every Wednesday and Friday from iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Westwood One.

He also wrote and created the web series comedy, ‘But I’m Chris Jericho,’ available to watch at ButImChrisJericho.com.
Jericho’s witty and engaging style of writing has to lead to him becoming a New York Times Bestselling author with 2007’s A Lion’s Tale: Around the World in Spandex, 2011’s Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps, 2014’s The Best In The World…At What I Have No Idea, and 2017’s No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life.
