SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame: Chris Jericho memories
 Chris Jericho is by far the best wrestler in WCW. Bischoff needs to get his head on his shoulders and make Jericho a force in WCW! Benoit and Jericho would make a great team. Maybe a new Hart Foundation...... JERICHO RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 NoFunAtAII
  Chris Jericho is not only a great wrestler, but he is also a great person. He respondes to all of my e-mails and he sent me an autographed photo.
  -Chris
 I cant really say I know Jericho, but I know his wrestling career from WAR, to ECW, to WCW, and I respect him alot. He has alot of talent and I know he still cares about his fans (even though he no longer shows it) lol.... anyways I wish you luck Jericho show the wrestling world what the Lionhearts all abot! c'mon....ARE YOU READY!
 HartRocks@aol.com
  Chris Jericho has a bad wrap. He's a really nice guy and he deserves what he has plus more. Speaking from personal experience he's also fine in person. All I have to say is Leave him alone!! I LOVE YOU CHRIS
  -Suzette Pina
  Chris Jericho is the best Cruiserwieght wrestler in the world today. He is a man of 1004 holds, he's the champ (thats one of his holds by the way). The people should realize Jericho is telling the truth when he goes out there and well just leave the man alone. Oh and one other thing you are out there watching him wrestle and he asks for help, help him. Anyway I think Bret should form a new Hart Foundation featuring, Bret, Davey, Jim Neidhart, Beniot and the man of cruiserwieghts CHRIS JERICHO THANK YOU VERRY MUCH. WCW AND JERICHO RULZ.

 Well, he is a fine Winnipeg guy, and he was so nice..He probably wouldn't remember me but I met him a few times in Neil Reimer's basement (Durring a lunch hour from West Wood) Hw was nice....Well thats really all I have to say, I hope that he reads this and can e-mail me at
 drew_barry_more@yahoo.com
 From the first time I saw him in the ring, I knew he was destined for great things. I've been a fan for a long time now, and no matter what twists and turns he takes in his career, he'll always have my support. I wish I could say I knew him personally, or that there would ever be a chance to meet him in person, but odds are against that. Hopefully, he'll see this and at least know that he has touched somebody. he's a fine athlete and a real entertainer. His Christian faith only adds to my already glowing opinion of him. may God bless you, Chris, and keep you safe in all your travels!

 I believed that Jericho is a fine wrestler and human being until I saw that he was in the Canadian wrestling hall of fame. That really disappoints me- Jericho and Canada in the same sentence just ain't right.
 -Patrick Warren, Houston Texas at margo98@swbell.net
  I remember that day when you beat Dean Malenko fair and square by submission of that amazing move, " THE LION TAMER." That is the best move I have ever seen. I use it on my brother all the time when we are wresling. It's so great. He submits right away. I hope you keep the cruiser weight belt for forever!!!
  - Nick G. (Jordan2311@aol.com)
 Jericho has the "Heart of a Lion" when it comes to wrestling and he also has the coolest wrestling site on the Internet!!!
 Your Lionsault is a thing of beauty, and so is your "Lionsteiner" or (Headscissor takedown...) Keep doing what you're doing!!
 -Lionel-
  I think that Chris Jericho is a great wrestiler. He has speed, strength and endurance, ehich he has displayed in all of the matches I have seen him in. His when against Scott Hall was very impressive. The new attitude he has shown in the ring is great. Keep up the good work!!!!!
 diamondduck@mindspring.com
 When Chris Jericho won the Cruiser Weight Belt, that was by-far the best event for a Canadian in WCW.. he is one of the best wrestlers and Eric B, should get his head out of Hogan's Ass.. I know that I'm not the only person who thinks this too. Chris Jericho has great mic skills, along with wrestling skills. he is one of Stu Hart's best wrestlers.... And the Liontamer is probaly the best submissions moves I have EVER seen.
  kristopher palmer (dpalmer@compusmart.ab.ca)
 I think that Chris Jericho is truly the best cruiserweight in WCW and that Bischoff needs to realize it. Everyone though he was gonna get beat by Juvi, Rey, Dean & Prince Nakamaki but he beat them all fair-and-square; until Malenko ilegally took his belt from him at the PPV. Oh yeah, hey, Patrick Warren ! What the hell is wrong with you ?! Chris Jericho is one of the best wrestlers along with The Crippler and the Harts that Canada has ever produced ! There's nothing wrong with being in the Canadian Hall of Fame, it's a H-U-G-E honor if you ask me !
  -Big Sexy, wolf_packer@hotmail.com
 Chris Jericho IS the best wrestler and person ever to grace the ring. He is VERY talented, and he is a nice guy in real life. I just wish that the non- Jericho fans would pull their head out and listen to this guy, he's really a great person.
  Nathan
 I remember seeing Chris Jericho first come into the scene in WCW a few years ago, and I decided then, that this guy was my favorite wrestler. He had great moves, and great skills, he was a natural. He is my favorite ever, and in my opinion he could be the greatest wrestler EVER to come out of Canada. He is a 4 time cruiserweight champion. He won atleast 50 matches in a row from January to May of 1998, before falling victim to the conspiracy. Chris Jericho is my hero, my rolemodel, my paragon of virtue, and I think all of you should appreciate him for the hero, the idol, and the fantastic wrestler that he is. Thank you very much.
  Joe Wood, Petaluma, Ca
 When i first saw Jericho I thought he was going to be an Shawn Micheals rip- off but then he started to develope his mic skills, wrestling skills, and attitute that didn't really resemble HBK's. I love the FACT the he is CHRISTIAN and I wish him all the safety he needs on the road. Jericho is in my mind in line for something great (If he hasn't already) probably U.S. champion (Of course EASY-E would let only big tought men be champion NOW) or greater.
 
 Jericho is not only the best wrestler in wrestling all together, but by far the most aaccomplished wrestler in history. Not only has he set Malenko straight, but also got Juvi to realize who he is. I love Chris Jericho as a wrestler, and I belive he is the only one who can beat goldberg. CHRIS JERICHO RULZ! IF U SEE THIS CHRIS, E MAIL ME!!
 Kitten9095@aol.com
 Good Wrestling skills, excellent mic skills, and a superior personality has made Chris Jericho one of the best all around wrestlers in WCW today. It's about time that Bishoff realizes how much of a treasure that he really is. Right now, Goldberg has the belt, but doesn't speak, Scott Hall and the Giant can't wrestle nor speak, Booker T can wrestle but has average mic skills. Jericho can wrestle, has excellent mic skills, and is extremely funny. He is one of the reasons that I continue to watch WCW. Hopefully he will go to the WWF, where Vince will definitely utilize his talents.
  Adrian
 Chris Jericho is the best wrestler ever to live. it is a shame he is from Canada though, but seeing it is him that is ok.
 THuRD905@aol.com
 I think that Chris Jericho is one of the BEST Cruiserweights in WCW AND WWF history. He has great mic skills and can definitely wrestle. He's one of the guys that just won't give up. He might be the only person to get up from a Juvy Driver, I've seen people stay down for the 1-2-3 plenty of times from that move, but no Chris. Chris resisted and eventually countered a huracanara into a Liontamer. The Liontamer is one of the best submission moves not because its a Boston Crab, but because it's used by Jericho. Rick Martel doesn't use the Boston Crab very well, in fact, he knocks you down and then tries to do it. Jericho doesn't do that. He'll COUNTER one of the cruiserweights moves if he has to, he'll do what he has to do to win. I think that he was kind of dumb to stall against Juventud Guerrera at Road Wild '98. He should've definitely won the match. Especially after that powerbomb. He should've immediately but Guerrera in that Liontamer right after the powerbomb. I guess it had to do something with money. But now it's all for the better, becaue Jericho has the TV Title which is a better title, it would give him a US shot and if he wins, a World shot which I am sorry to say he'll probably lose. Jericho is one of the best and was trained by the best. People may not like him but you have to respect him. He has FIVE Cruiserweight championships beating some of the best which includes Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio, Alex Wright, and plenty more. And name any other Cruiserweight, I guarantee you he has beaten him in a title defense. Noone can escape the Liontamer!! JERICHO 4 LIFE!!!!!

 Chris "The Liontamer" Jericho is one of the best wrestlers around today! He has an award winning personality, and he has looks to die for! I read in one of the other memories that "It's a shame that Chris is from Canada". Well, I am DAMN PROUD that Chris is from my home country of Canada, and that is what makes him soooo special and unique ! I just wish that he would look at his email so that others may send some without it getting returned as undeliverable cause his mailbox is full. Chris has shown that his wrestling skills are unbelievably GREAT, and only get better with time. Also, pulling out those rule books helped too. Hey, do whatever you have to...know what I mean, EH? (little Canadian joke there)....hehe.....I am proud to say that I am a JERICHOHOLIC, and always will be ! Don't believe me? Come take a look at all the pics I have on my bedroom wall ! Love Ya, Chris, Keep Up the GREAT work !!
 Yvonne, eades@cybersurf.net
 Chris rules!!!!! The only reason the Giant helps him on Nitro is because he's scared to fight the greatest WCW TV champ ever!! Another great Canadian athlete kicking @#$ in the USA!!
 Joyce -Lynn Beardy
 I just want to say I loved it when Chris Jericho put Dean Malenko in the Lion Tamer at Uncensored. Quote Jericho: "I want you to want me."
 warrdunn@bellsouth.net
 I love Chris Jericho. WTG on winning the TV Title man. I love that you know not to screw up your character by letting Bischoff put you in nWo. Keep doin' what you're doing. You're hilarious, you're fun to listen to and watch, and your website is by far the best wrestler bio page on the net. I think it's commendable that you make the whole page yourself and those pictures of you as an actor or as an alternate sports star are HILARIOUS. Don't change
 galanis@bcs.ca
 He is the best champ in WCW right know. He was such a jerk that I started to like him and know he is my favorite champ in WCW. He can make me laugh so hard at the events and he has some talent. I think he should tag a little bit more and then he should get the us belt cause he is the man I wanna be a Jericholic ninja.

  PS. I am A JERICHOHOLIC.
  I am a 42 year old wrestling fan in the Vancouver BC area. Been a wrestling fan since I was about 6 years old, so I have seen lots of wrestlers... including most of the greats. Your athletic ability and being able to finally showcase them on WCW, I believe will get you the recognition you have not do far received in the TV wrestling circus.
  Your great ability coupled with the " New " attitude you've been displaying for some time now,the bad bratty boy, is extremely entertaining. The latest schtick of the body guards, parodying Goldberg, is just a laugh riot.
  I don't get many laughing hysterics, but you have provided the greater percentage. The pomp and circumstance of Goldberg may be well choreopgraphed and professionally built up, but all in all he has not got the "Bag of moves" that most pro's like you possess ( so far ).
  We will see you at the TOP of the WCW ratings, I know... I've seen the greats and you are one and will continue to get better ( rating wise that is )
  Best of luck Brother.

 Chris "Corazon de Leon / Lion Heart / Lion-do / Monday Night" Jericho is a young member of sympathizers of not only Japanese wrestling but Japan itself. He adapted himself to the Japanese environment like Dory & Terry Funk, Abdullah the Butcher, and Stan Hansen did, and could learn the style and got over. This guy has been taking advantage of every opportunity so he can be better.
  His first tour to Japan was for Atsushi Onita's FMW from 10/10 to 10/24/91. "Sudden Impact" (Jericho & Lance Storm) from Calgary scored a big upset over The Gladiator and Horace Boulder (Jericho packaged Gladiator in 9:51) in Yoshikawa, Saitama on 10/24, and he returned to the FMW's Yokohama Baseball Stadium in Kanagawa on 9/19/92 (a death match of Onita vs. Tiger Jeet Singh / a legend match of Killer Kowalski vs. John Tolos ). He and Kevin Fall beat Eiji Ezaki (Hayabusa) and Koji Nakagawa (Jericho beat Ezaki in 10:12) in a curtain raiser match. He headed for Mexico, and, as "Corazon de Leon"(Heart of Lion) beat Mano Negra to win the 77th NWA World Middleweight title (one of the oldest wrestling titles since the '30s) at Vista Revolution on 12/4/93, while Lance Storm went to Europe; then, they as "The Thrillseekers " debuted in Smoky Mountain Wrestling area in January, '94.
  After about a one year absence, he became a regular as "Lion Heart" for Genichiro Tenryu's WAR from February in '94. He had some great matches on the WAR. (6/4/95 Korakuen Hall) Lion Heart b. Gedo (19:20) to win International Junior Heavyweight title.
  (7/7/95 Rogoku Kokugi-kan) Lion Heart b. Ultimo Dragon (19:20) for the title. This match was televised by satellite channel WOWOW; then, he could add to his reputation to American fans who watch Japanese video tapes. Cactus Jack witnessed the show, and he was impressed with Jericho's match, and, of course, his old hero Jimmy Snuka's match, Mil Mascaras / Bob Backlund / Snuka vs. Perry Saturn / John Kronus /Hector Garza.
  (12/13/95 Ryogoku Kokugi-kan) Wild Pegasus (Chris Benoit) b. Lion Heart (13:43) in "Super J-Cup/2nd Stage" at Ryogoku Kokugi-kan. Benoit was one of his ideal wrestlers.
  He had 24 tours for the WAR for 29 months from 2/24/94 to 7/21/96. He was hot on ECW at the same time, and appeared on Antonio Inoki's World Wrestling Peace Festival at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on 6/1/96. Then, he opened the door to WCW.
  Calgary, FMW, Mexico, SMW, WAR, ECW, and WCW / New Japan ... Jericho's motivation and adaptability made him a Super Star / Super Estrella all over the world. He can read and write "kana" (Japanese alphabet / general term for a number of syllabic writing system developed in Japan, all based on Chinese characters ["kanji"]). So, he can check out Japanese wrestling articles about himself, as well as his favorite rock music magazine "Burrn", and he can go everywhere in Tokyo by himself, and made a lot of friends. He was even named "Lion-do" when he was teaming with Kodo Fuyuki and Jado & Gedo; "do" means "way", "Ja-do" is "Evil-way", and "Ge-do" is "Outlaw-way".
  The telephone was ringing in the evening on Friday (1/3/97), "Hey, this is Chris, Happy New Year !" "Where are you now?" "Calgary!" The next day, at the Tokyo Dome, Koji Kanemoto's opponent " X " finally came out on the ramp .......... Silver outfit , "Super Liger" !!! It was a moment when another of a boy's dreams had just come true.
  Chris Jericho is always looking for a place where hard working will be appreciated and understood, and where he can enjoy his favorite rock. Not every gaijin-wrestler succeeds. Only limited gaijin can get over in Japan. They have to break barriers of language, life style, human relations, and wrestling style.

 Chris is a great humanitarian and a swell guy.He has shown that he deserves a title shot at Goldberg.Chris you rule ! Jerichoholic 4-life
  raventhehitman@hotmail.com
 I liked when Chris Jericho started calling Dean Malenko "stinko Malenko" Chris Jericho rules!!!!
 RSlossen@aol.com
 Jericho is very fine wrestler. His cockiness will get him somewhere in WCW.
 KiNgfLiRt5@aol.com
 Chris Jericho is the best damn wrestler from north of the border. He is the true Canadian Crippler. There is absolutely nothing you can say about that. I am Jericholic member no. 99999999999999999999999999999999999. Just kidding
 Momota B Hussain
  I've been a fan of Chris since I seen him at a Canadian indy show for the WFWA back in 1991, and I kept up with his career via the internet. He's one of the few reasons (there is not very many reasons) that I watch WCW. Bret cannot reform the Hart Foundation because I believe the name "Hart Foundation" is a WWF copyright, so how about the Canadian World Order, why not?
  Scott Breon
  Although I hate watching Monday Night Nitro I always turn it on every couple of minutes to see Jericho. He is the only one I respect in WCW besides Goldberg. He doesn't even have to step into the ring to put on a good show. I think WCW has to realize who the attention getter is. That is, Chris Jericho
  ALVIN WICHARD
  I think that Chris Jericho is the best damn piece of talent that the WCW ever had. He is one of the main reasons that I am such a huge WCW fan (bescides Big Poppa Pump of course). The only reason that WCW is getting good ratings is because of da man and Ralphus, and if the rumor is true and Jericho is really headed to the WWF then WCW can kiss their ratings goodbye.
  Chris muehleisen
  I remember watching Chris Jericho on WCW Nitro before he was a champion there and thought that he was a nice guy and a good wrestler. I still think he's a good wrestler, but I also think he needs to do something about the attitude of his current character. We know that wrestling is not what it appears, but that doesn't mean it's any less of a strenuous activity. That means he's not in control of who he is. Chris, please let whoever's in charge make a change to get you back to the guy you once were.
  Jerry Hicks
  Ahhh, my greatest memory of the greatest superstar in the wrestling history books is, the fact that Jericho has beat "The Man." C'mon people how can Greenburg be "The Man," if every ones Rolemodel beat him not 1, not 2,or 3, but 4 times! My favorite match was the very first! i can see it like it was 5 seconds ago. CJ getting rightup and feeling no damage from that vicious spear and just a matter of seconds later CJ slaped on the most painful and greatest move in wrestling history, "The Loin Tamer!" Woooooo,there are big things still to come in "Lion Hearts" career!
  Now thank you all JERICHO IS THE ONLY MAN OF WCW!!!!
  baddass_01@hotmail.com
  Chris is the best champ of all time. He is strong and fast and can last all day in a match. CHRIS ROCKS. Keep up the good work
  Mynmystkn@aol.com
  Man, what can I say about him? He's the greatest wrestler thats ever entered the ring in Wcw. I haven't been watching wrestling for very long and much to the objection of my wrestling friends... I became a Jerichoholic. The first time i had ever seen him was about 9 months ago. He slapped on the liontamer and won the match. He sat in the middle of the ring and cried. It was beyond adorable! Ever since then i've been hooked on him. i've got an entire wall dedicated to him... Ha! i guess you would call it my wall of Jericho! Not only is he a great guy in and out of the ring, but he's an excelent person all around. I've got my monday night jericho shirt and my autographed pic of him, and to me... thats all i need! Keep up the good work Chris. i'll always love ya!!!!
  jericho_holic34@hotmail.com
  I think Chris Jericho should get new entrance music. I think "My Hero" by the Foo Fighters would be an apt theme. It would fit well with the attitude and it is simply true. Jericho has the best combo of talent and mic skills of anyone in WCW. (No one has better mic skills but Benoit is slightly better in ring) Keep up the tremendous success Chris. I wish you the best of luck in the future. I appreciate the temendous entertainment you have brought me.
  TOPBBYGUN@aol.com
  Chris Jericho is, without a shadow of a doubt the reason that WCW has been so prosperous. As the millions upon millions of Jerichoholics sit and watch their paragon of virtue every week, it is a shame to hear the possibilites of Jericho's uncertain future in WCW. Losing Lionheart Chris Jericho would certainly spell the downfall of World Championship Wrestling as we know it. Jericho is the single most entertaining wrestler in professional wrestling bar none. Wherever it is that he goes, the faithful Jerichoholics will follow their role model. After all, Chris Jericho equals rock and roll. And regardless of what anyone says, Ralphus is the toughest and most intimidating force of the modern pro wrestling era. I just had to exhibit my Jerichoholism and the simple fact that Chris Jericho is my hero, he is my role model, and he is my paragon of virtue. Thank you....and good night.
  Joey
  My favorite memory of Chris Jericho would be the whole last year of 1998 because in my opinion that is when Chris Jericho became perhaps one of the biggest stars in the whole wrestling business. I never seen a more dominant competitive champion then when Chris Jericho was Cruiserweight Champion.
  He was defending that belt on every TV program beating challenger after challenger leaving no contender without a title shot and an unblemished record.
  Jericho also set a standard for some of the finest interviews in the business. His interviews with the amazing level of charisma that comes out can only be rivaled by those of Ric Flair on his best day. One day the real icon, the real showstopper, and the true main event, Chris Jericho will be the biggest star in the entire wrestling business!
  -Dave Goldberg, Clark, NJ
  In an age of "Sports Entertainment," Jericho's mic skills are exactly what are needed to keep fans interested. His "Conspiracy Theory" and "Konnan Cheated Me" segments are very funny.
  When he hits the WWF, I can see him with DX using the mic better than Road Dog.
  ...all that and he can wrestle too!
  Jon Sohn
  I had the chance to see Chris wrestle Big Poppa Pump on Nitro in Minnesota. WOW. What a match. He wrestled awesome against Steiner. WCW is crazy to let him go (if he does go). But wherever Chris ends up, he will be great. He has the ability, attitude, and charisma to lead wrestling into the next century. Good Luck Chris.
  Stevepac13@aol.com
  Chris Jericho is one of the best wrestlers in the world He has everything from speed,endurance,and moves. With one of the most feared submissions in wrestling -- the lion tamer--this man got it all.This man does not back down from a fight no matter how tough his opponent is,Saturn,Konnan and Big Poppa Pump.
  Ryan
  I will never, EVER, forget the time Jericho entered the ring with the "Conspiracy Victim" sign above his head. That was pure hillarious. He should bring the sign back, because it looks ike EZE has a conspiracy against him getting any REAL match, or especially a title shot.
  Jason Steadham
  Chris rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  He's the best thing going in WCW (besides Kevin Nash & Scott Hall).
  He's totally funny. He cracks me up.
 - M B Paul
  I have been a huge fan of Jericho ever since he was in ECW. Why people boo him makes no sense to me. He is the best! Long live my Role Model, and paragon of virtue, The Lionheart Chris Jericho!
  anthony hinds
  Chris, if you ever see this this is your old bud Brad M. from Winnipeg. I see you now making your dream come true like I knew you would and they always say dreams do come true but only for some see you in Calgary sometime eh!
  Brad!
Chris Jericho yearbook photo.

  Stay in WCW and compete for the US title, while working you way to the world title. There are so many stars in the WCW, it keep anyone wrestler from getting burned out. WWF will olny try to use you as an example.
  dethdogs
  I think it's great how successful Chris Jericho has become. Even though I've watched him on Nitro for some time I only realized today that I knew Chris back in College. Chris Irvine (his real name) was a cool guy that everybody liked. When I realized who he was I dug through our yearbook and found a photo of Chris. Looking at the photo (at right) he really hasn't changed that much. Good luck Chris. Hope you still remember your Beer Bash buddies from Red River.
  Peter Douglas

 Hey Chris,
  I remember when I first saw you wrestle, It was you v.s Rocco Rock, those dumbasses put you on the table, but with your lion like reflexes, you got off of the table and the dork went crashing into it! Hmmmmm, I wonder who won? YOU!! As soon as those grip and flip things came out, I got the Jericho-Malenko pack, and I made you kick his ass.
  Executive Assistant to Kathleen Flaherty Winstar International
 I am the biggest WWF fan!! and when Chris Jericho came in August he had a very nice strong body. But anyways he was a great athlete and a great musician with stuck mojo. Fozzy osborne is Chris's friend Rich the grituar player and his band, with Chris Jericho as the lead singer,a very sexy singer that I may add, he really turns me on. Anyways he plays 80s music like Iron Madain, The Scorpions, and heavy metal from the 80s. Chris is the sexiest man alive, if ya know what I mean!
 Ashley Jericho 4-ever
  Some cocky blonde-haired wise-ass named Chris Jericho sparked my interest. He reminded me much of a younger, more well spoken, Shawn Michaels. Better yet, a younger version of Ric Flair.
  Taunting his opponent, using the mic to such a capacity I had yet to see, and having the in-ring talent to back it up. Chris Jericho kept me tuning into WCW programming week after week.
  I guess I had caught the Jerichoholic bandwagon while it was in park. His website was a forum for anti-Jericho fans, no one understood his humor, or why he was so great. When attending live WCW events in Boston MA, the WCW marks turned on my Jerichoholics anonymous shirt. These nWo lemmings scoffed at true talent.
  I continued to watch Chris Jericho be shuffled around in the mid-card circuit, placed behind the ego's that Eric Bischoff liked better. Then many enjoyable months of WCW programming...Chris Jericho was removed from WCW TV.
  At this point I decided to take it upon myself to find out more about his prior wrestling stints before WCW. Purchasing a Best of Chris Jericho tape on Ebay...i found out how truly great he is. His fluidity in the ring, impecable timing, speed, power, and style. Jericho became the standard I compared all other wrestlers to.
  Since his return to TV on the WWF, I've yet to be impressed. His first few weeks were very entertaining, but since then he has been put back in the middle of the deck. A truly talented wrestler, probably the best in terms of technical ability and wrestling knowledge. In my eyes it seems that he hasnt even really left the WCW, his talent is being used just the same...if not less.
  But enough of the negative. Chris Jericho is one of the Top Ten wrestlers based on talent alone in the sport today. He has been an inspiration for me to begin training as a wrestler. Although he will probably never read this and I will probably never meet him, I still feel that I should share my memory with the throngs of Jerichoholics out there. CJ, if you ever...E-E-EVER...get to read this, You are truly the most complete wrestler in the business today. Hopefully Vinny Mac will let you out of your WWF contract and you will get to comeback to WCW and put on some great technical marathons with Bret Hart and Chris Benoit.
 Ian
 You know ever since Jericho left WCW I was all mad on that. He was a good comedian and extremely cool and funny. But on August 10 when he showed up to RAW IS WAR, Better know as RAW IS JERICHO, he was better than ever. It was funny when he had the Phink with him. He certainly get screwed when Phink is with him. Jericho will be in great matches that are similar like his matches in ECW when he face guys like Lance Storm or like Taz. I will and forever be a JERICHOHLIC.
 BIG Juan Ton
 I remember seeing Chris Jericho in a diner on Long Island, I doubt that he would even remember. This was right when you disappeared from WCW and were heading over to WWF. Good choice. You gave me a autograph after I screamed to you come on baby and you started to laugh. What a nice guy. Jericho you are the best wrestler I have ever seen and your swagger to the ring is great. Keep it up and thank you for great matches. You kick ass.
 Fmfmcm@cs.com
 Hi, my name is Sean and I'm 12 years old and I live on Long Island. You're the best! I liked you since August 26 when you debuted on Smackdown and you PowerBombed RoadDogg through the table! You won like every belt including the WORLD WRESTLING FEDERATION BELT! and you should get it back! I also liked when you played tricks on Ken Shamrock in the begining of your career in the WWF,that was funny.I'm the BIGGEST Jerichoholic in town! You're pretty much my HERO!!
 -Sean
 Jericho should defently be the WWF champ he is a hard worker and a great wrestler give him the belt

 Chris Jericho iz a hottie!!

 I remember when Chris Jericho went up to Steven Ray and said 'you're not the only one from the streets, brother. I come from the mean streets of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.'
 rontogiannis@home.com
 Jericho is the best wrestler I have ever eeeeeever seen and he should be WWF champion. He never replies to my emails but I'm sure he is a great guy.
 mamma_ei
  I remember when Chris was in Toronto, for an autograph signing. He is by far one of the nicest guys i've ever met. He's an awesome performer and athlete. I love his promos and I think is headed down a path of legendary success. I think it's great to have some real home-grown Canadians in show-biz and entertainment. One of them being Chris Jericho.
 Keep it cool Chris.....
  Christine-Toronto. (vuelve@gotomy.com)
 I am a huge fan of the WWF Wrestler that calls himself Chris Jericho. I applaude you guys for putting Jericho into your Hall of fame and congratulate him on winning all the titles and championships over his 11 year career. If thier was one thing I could ask for in the entire world it would be to meet Chris "Y2J" Jericho. Now I being from the land down under, (Australia), know that thier is a fair chance that I will NEVER EVER meet Jericho, but I thought that seen as though all you Americans and Canadians see the wrestlers when the come into town with thier respective shows, you'se don't truly appreciate thier gifts that they show you every time they perform for you live. Every time I watch RAW or Smackdown or one of the many pay-per-views, I am completly and utterly amazed with some of the things those guys and gals do. It's just amazing! So next time you guys and gals see a wrestling show in your home town take the time to realise how lucky you'se are to be able to do that.

 and remember.....that "RAW is JERICHO"
 What can i say about Chris Jericho that hasn't already been said by previous Jerichoholics? I loved the "wars" he has had with Chris "The Crippler" Benoit, and I especially loved the promo where Jericho said that "he'd fight Benoit as a bird and on a goat" I think all the Jerichoholics know what promo I'm talking about their and his memorable regularly wars with the "trash bagging hoe" Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley. I have been a fan of Jericho since his start in ECW but became a fully feldged Jerichoholic when Jericho jumped to WCW. I liked his feuds with Dean Malenko & Rey Mysterio Jr but the one thing I like about Jericho is that no matter if his character is a heel or a face, he's still the same old handsome blond haired guy from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The one thing that I can't figure out about some wrestling fans, is that, how can they ALL not like Chris Jericho. He's charming, has excellent mic skills and is extremely nice to all of his fans..So to all those people who don't like Chris.."would you PLEASE SHUT THE HELL UP!" and bow down to the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla.
