Jericho nervous about title bout in 'Peg
By Winnipeg Sun Staff
  Chris Irvine grew up in St. James dreaming of becoming a professional wrestler, or a sports writer.

 Irvine, a graduate of Westwood Collegiate and Red River College, achieved both his goals having written articles for The Winnipeg Sun and becoming a superstar with the World Wrestling Federation.

 Now known as Chris (Y2J) Jericho, the 30-year-old Winnipegger returns to his home town June 3 in the biggest match of his career, headlining a 10-bout card at the Winnipeg Arena.

 As if wrestling in front of his home-town fans wasn't nerve wracking enough, Jericho, the son of former New York Ranger Ted Irvine, will battle Stone Cold Steve Austin for the heavyweight championship.

 "My stomach will be full of butterflies," said Jericho yesterday.

 In other matches: Newly-crowned intercontinental champion Kane will defend his belt against the man he beat, HHH; The Canadian Crippler Chris Benoit meets Rhyno; while Test takes on Big Show for the hardcore title.

 In a tag-team elimination tournament, The Dudley Boyz will have their table out for the teams of Edge and Christian, Xpac and Justin Credible and the Hardy Boyz.

 Grand Master Sexay and Steve (The Lethal Weapon) Blackman take on the Radicals -- Perry Saturn and Dean Malenko. Raven meets Hard Core Holly. Spike Dudley battles Crash Holly while light heavyweight champion Jerry Lynn defends his belt against Funaki.

 In the women's match, Molly Holly meets Ivory.
