Description

Chris Jericho is the first undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the WWE and WCW, and has been called one of the fifty greatest wrestlers of all time. Now retired, he is writing his memoir, telling the story of his journey from wrestling school in Canada to his time in leagues in Mexico and Japan to his big break in the WCW. He'll dish the dirt on how he worked his way through the ranks alongside major wrestling stars like Chris Benoit and Lance Storm to become a major superstar.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 06, 2007 – This funny, insightful and compulsively readable autobiography by professional wrestling superstar “Lion Heart” Jericho matches fellow wrestler Mick Foley's bestselling Have a Nice Day! Jericho reached international stardom after joining the media juggernaut World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly WWF) in 1999, but this book neglects his many accomplishments since then, such as his legendary same-night defeat of wrestling powerhouses “the Rock” and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to become the WWE's first undisputed heavyweight champion. Instead, Jericho recounts the fascinating story of his early years—in effect, a short history of world wrestling trends since 1960—from his “brutal” early training in his native Canada through finally being invited to join the WWE. Jericho ignores or glosses over controversial topics like steroid use, preferring to keep things light and cheery. His hilarious and detailed descriptions of his many bouts, especially his 1995 “calling card” match in Japan before 10,000 fans, will leave readers hoping for a sequel.

Customer Reviews

Great bio book

One of the most under-rated books out there. Great story telling how Chris started from the ground up and made his WWF dream come true. A highly recommended read for wrestling and non-wrestling fans alike.

Price?

I love the book, but I saw it at the dollar tree for one dollar.

Good and very interesting

Great job by Mr. irvine Hejaz earned my respects
