WWE.com BIO

Chris Jericho was born to be a star -- more importantly, a WWE Superstar. In
1990, Jericho began training at the legendary Stu Hart’s notorious “Dungeon,”
and later that year, made his debut on the independent circuit in Canada,
teaming with Lance Storm. From there, he competed and won numerous
championships in Japan and Mexico, such as the International Junior Heavyweight
Championship and the NWA Middleweight Championship.

Jericho's career began to escalate in 1996, when he debuted in ECW and later
became that organization’s Television Champion. Later that year, he made his
debut in WCW as “Lionheart” Chris Jericho. In 1997, he captured his first
Cruiserweight Championship. During that time, he flourished in legendary title
battles with Dean Malenko and current WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio.

On August 9, 1999, Chris Jericho arrived in WWE on a mission: to be a one-man,
human-highlight reel. Within months of his arrival, he won the WWE
Intercontinental Championship. Just a few months later, at WrestleMania 2000,
he defeated Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle in a Triple-Threat Match for the
European Championship. Despite all of his success, Jericho had one final goal,
and on December 9, 2001, he achieved it. On that night, Jericho defeated The
Rock and Stone Cold to become the first-ever Undisputed World Champion. Since
then, Jericho has continued to excel, maintaining his status as one of the
sport’s greatest talents. If he is not in action, he is probably hosting his
interview segment, “Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel, ” instigating
confrontations and controversy. In addition to his full-time schedule of
competition, Jericho travels worldwide as lead vocalist with his rock group,
Fozzy.



My comments on Jericho:

Y2J is one of the best technicians today. An ideal wrestler, he can fnish off
opponents using a high-flying maneuver and high speed throughout his technical
moves. Y2J has got it all : Charisma, Technique, Holds. The Boston Crab
maneuver has barely made anyone tap out until he came to WCW, introducing his
new Elevated Boston Crab, which he calls "Walls of Jericho". He is an all-round
opponent and can beat anyone in anytime, anyhere. I bet it won't be long before
the Highlight of the Night capture the gold.

4.0 Strategy
___________________________

Use 'Suplex 13' and/or 'German Suplex 06' lots. You'll find this useful.
Quickly lock in 'Walls of Jericho 03' (Ground type). Opponent shouldn't be able
to escape very quick. Keep applying pressure. Also, hit 'Punch to Groin' few
times.Then lock in Walls again. If opponent counters, just do 'Suplex 13'
again, and lock in Walls again. At quite some time, the Sub B will increase
your Adrenaline and you can perform finisher. I suggest to not use 'Walls of
Jericho' (Standing type) if facing a wrestler with high sub stat (e.g. Chris
Benoit, Kurt Angle). Do it only to wrestlers under your sub level. Until then,
just use the ground type of Walls. Unless the match features more than 2
wrestlers (e.g. tag team, handicap), limit your submission move to "Walls of
Jericho'. You might end the match without even using a finisher icon!
