Chris - What's your opinion on Dolph Ziggler? Dude is an unreal worker but hasn't been able to break through yet. What does he need to do to get to that next level?

Chris_Jericho425 karma


TryNstopME024268 karma

Any advice for a guy in his mid twenties?

Chris_Jericho1333 karma

Work hard and wear a rubber

BM_FUN258 karma

Hey Chris Jericho you beat Stone Cold and The Rock in the same night to become the world champion.

You know what The Rock and Stone Cold did to the wrestling community on this website? They ignored them.

My question to you Mr. Jericho is... Will you beat The Rock and Stone Cold to not ignore the wrestling community of Reddit?

I'm a fan of yours Jericho, and it would be cool if you come visit us at least to say goodbye at /r/SquaredCircle

Chris_Jericho1141 karma

Sorry I'm ignoring you

DoctorDetroit8251 karma

Are there any plans on releasing a compilation CD of Y2J's best insults? "Trash Bag Ho" and deliberately mispronouncing opponent's names are my favorites, lol.

Chris_Jericho326 karma

Yes!! It's coming out on K-Tel via mail order soon!

AfroMH217 karma

You are well known as the Man of 1004 Holds. Have you learned any more, and how exactly do you use the Moss Covered Three Handed Family Credenza?

Chris_Jericho348 karma

It's all in the wrist

LutzExpertTera212 karma


Chris, thanks for doing this AMA from a huge fan!

  • Wrestling question: How have you been able to compete at such a high level for so long? It’s amazing looking at your WCW matches from the mid 90’s compared to present day, and to see the excellent shape you’re still in. I think you said it best yourself at the 2013 Royal Rumble “I never lost it baby!”
  • Semi wrestling question: With Fozzy’s USA Fall Tour kicking off this week and your involvement in the buildup to SummerSlam later this month, how are you able to balance touring for both Fozzy and WWE?
  • Non wrestling question: What is your creative process like for coming up with new songs? How has your songwriting style changed or matured over the years?

Chris_Jericho249 karma

I cant balance both, which I why I only come back to the WWE when Fozzy is taking a break. My WWE stints will be more like rock tours now. And this tour ends Sept in Nashville. Thanks!

LicenseToILL-INI205 karma

One of my favorite aspects of your promos is when you would purposely bungle your opponent's name (Kirk Angel, Raisin, etc.)

How'd you come up with that, and how would you bungle your own name?

Chris_Jericho400 karma

I was announced as Chris Herrichico once in Pomona, CA

BenjaminTalam188 karma

Was the silent gimmick a creation of your own, and if so his did you convince the higher ups to let you roll with it? It was hilarious sitting on the edge of my seat each week waiting for you to say something besides a maniacle laugh.

Chris_Jericho262 karma

Me and Vince's idea

Marcanadian188 karma

I grew up watching you and you're still my favourite wrestler of all time. You've made many big returns, most notably in 2007 and 2012, but also at the Royal Rumble in 2013 and just a few weeks ago. Which one of your returns did you enjoy the most?

Chris_Jericho401 karma

Royal Rumble 2013 was awesome cause it was a Total surprise!! I fooled you!

MaxPayneistheName161 karma


Chris_Jericho682 karma

Doesn't matter...none of them have ever beaten me in an officially sanctioned match

Throwing_Elbows158 karma


Chris_Jericho576 karma

Yes as the new Sin Cara

ilikeminieggs139 karma

Mr. Jericho, what was the deal with your 2012 Raw return where you cried and left the ring without saying a word? Was there some motive or satire I completely missed or was it done to get this kind of a response?

Also, will we ever see Y2J in long pants again?

Chris_Jericho315 karma

I was overwhelmed over how much the fans loved me

CLint_FLicker135 karma

Do you ever consider regrowing the early 2000's beard?

Also, shout out to /r/squaredcircle!

Chris_Jericho252 karma

Nope I'll leave the beards to Zakk Wylde and Daniel Bryan! Too itchy

Leakee113 karma

When you first debuted in WWE, who's idea was it to do the whole millenium entrance-countdown thing?

Chris_Jericho231 karma


droopy_4skyn112 karma

Hello, Chris. What was your most memorable moment of Eddie Guerrero?

Chris_Jericho319 karma

His friendship

MichaelJahrling110 karma

Hey Chris! Love all of the stuff you do in the ring. Sorry if you've mentioned this in one of your books before (I've never had the chance to read them) but what was your reaction when Mankind was thrown off the Cell at the 1998 King of the Ring?

Chris_Jericho241 karma

Same as yours...HOLY SHIT!!

the_dead_icarus91 karma

Hey Y2J, it's 5:30am here in Australia and I stayed up just for this AMA. Will we ever see a return of that glorious fountain hairstyle you used to rock? Granted you'd have to grow your hair out a bit for it to work.

Chris_Jericho151 karma

That was a once in a lifetime thing haha

scrotie_boogerballs87 karma

Chris huge fan of your books! My question is, what time period does your new book cover? Keep doing what you do babaaaayyyyy!

EatUpAndWellTellYa77 karma

Hi Chris. Welcome to Reddit is Jericho!

I've always wanted to know, I remember watching your episode of The Dating Game and you were the selected bachelor with that blonde broad. Did you actually go on the three day vacation with her? Did you guys actually ever date? How much of that was all for show?

PS. Love Talk is Jericho, and thanks for being the best in the world at what you do. The stuff you're doing again with Stephanie right now is great.


Chris_Jericho148 karma

I did not go on a date with her, but got an email that she popped out of a cake at a batchelor party a few months later...

Thesolly18075 karma

Hi Chris you've been my favourite wrestler since I started watching, how many holds do you know? Armbar?

Any chance we see Jim Norton, Anthony or Opie being on your podcast? And what do you think about Anthony getting fired?

Chris_Jericho49 karma

Yes! Love all three of those guys

MrZissman50 karma

A lot of KISS fans do not like the fact that Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer are wearing the Cat and Spaceman outfits of Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. (Myself included.) So I know you're a KISS fan, but I was curious if you had an opinion on this?

Chris_Jericho71 karma

Doesn't bother me. I dig the Bruce Kulick/Eri Carr era the most

Leakee49 karma

How does your typical Monday go, when you are scheduled to be on Monday Night Raw?

Chris_Jericho216 karma

Hang out. Do AMAs on reddit

bonerjohnson49 karma

If you had to do it all over again .... would you avoid spilling that coffee on Kane?

Would you recommend the newest Fozzy album as a good start to a potential new listener?

Chris_Jericho65 karma

Absolutely. Do You Wanna Start A War is the most diverse and eclectic album of our career and the perfect example of what our band sounds like

MrBigBadBean44 karma

We all know of your many talents on-screen or in music, but do you have any hidden talents that would surprise us?

If you could give me one piece of advice about life, what would it be?

Chris_Jericho116 karma

Don't listen to negative people

SmashedBrotato35 karma

Hi Chris! I'm a huge fan, you're actually the reason I got into wrestling! Plus, you're the funniest guy on facebook.

Out of all the matches you've had, which stands out as your most memorable?

How do you juggle Family Life, Fozzy Life, and Wrestling Life without going completely insane?

Any chance you'll regrow your magnificent, lionlike mane?

Can I have a hug?

Hi Chris - big thanks for doing this. I have a tonne of respect for everything you've done over at WWE.

Can I ask, what does your average gym session consist of? And what is your diet like?

I rarely go to the gym. Mostly DDP yoga nowadays

Bullitbob_21 karma

Hey Chris, I'm a big fan going back to your early days of WCW. I know WCW wasn't always the best place to work but how fun was it doing all the comedy stuff you got to do there? As a fan, I never had more fun watching you on TV than in those days.

Chris_Jericho45 karma

In retrospect WCW was a great experience

danram20721 karma

Hey Chris! You've been quoted as saying you don't want a huge production for your retirement from pro wrestling and that you kind of just want to ride off into the sunset. Do you still feel this way?

You've been written off WWE programing a couple of times now, either with a beatdown (Orton in 2010, Ryback in 2013) or by having your contract terminated (Ziggler in 2012). Would you be ok with something similar to this happening for your final in-ring appearance?

Chris_Jericho41 karma

Doesn't matter to me. I don't put too much thought into that sort of stuff

ryanrobson10120 karma

What would you consider your breakthrough moment in your career which took you to the main event level?

Chris Jericho!!! Flashback from my childhood! Thanks for stopping by and doing this. Just a couple of questions:
-Who was your favorite wrestler to work with?
-Who's idea was it for the pony tail on top your head?

Chris_Jericho53 karma

I stole it from Gene Simmons

outlaw6128816 karma

The Ayatollah of Rock-and-Rolla! My question: If you could recruit a metal supergroup with you and lead vocals, who would you choose?

Chris_Jericho83 karma

James Hetfield-guitar Dimebag-guitar Steve Harris-Bass The Rev-Drums

Bentley8216 karma

Hi Chris, first let me say that I've been a fan of yours since the early 90s. I even had your Jerichoholic's shirt which I wore until it fell apart, literally!

  • You've had some pretty crazy ideas for segments and gimmicks, what drives you to think of these? I like to assume you're trying to get other wrestlers to break character by being as silly as possible.

  • I once did the Walls of Jericho on my brother about 15 years ago, the old-WCW style where you really cranked it on the other person's neck. He squealed, I laughed. If you could, would you return to the older style for aesthetic reasons?

  • If you're ever in Phoenix, AZ (cheap pop), want to grab a beer?

Thank you for the memories, truly.

Chris_Jericho19 karma

Gotta think outside of the box man!

Chris Jericho, I must say you are awesome as you combine 2 of my favorite things, rock and roll and wrestling. I have been a fan of yours since your WWE debut. That said, when are you going to do a duet with Ozzy Osbourne as I think it would be massive?

Chris_Jericho27 karma

Whenever he calls me I'm ready

xayoz30613 karma

Chris: huge fan of the music and the work in the ring.

I know you are good friends with Jeff Waters from Annihilator. Any plans of a tour together in Canada? Would love to see both bands here in the prairies. And bring along A Darker Day out of Ottawa.

Chris_Jericho23 karma

Would love that. jeff is one of the best guitar players in the world today!

Hi Mr Jericho,

Long time fan. I'd like to think your sassiness made me into the woman that I am today.

Do you really hate Windsor, Ontario as much as I think you do?

What was your favourite cartoon growing up?

Also, I was the girl who tweeted you the Jericho valentine :) I like to think that made you my secret makeshift valentine....
