Chris Jericho hasn’t been in the ring for a long time, so his family and daughters aren’t too thrilled about his return. A big name in AEW, Jericho is respected around the world of pro wrestling.
He has been in the wrestling business for a long time and plans to continue doing so in the near future. He has been good for the business as a whole and has always helped bring pro wrestlers who deserve more attention to the forefront.
Jericho is the only person to have ever held both the WWE and NJPW Intercontinental Championships simultaneously. He has won the Intercontinental Championship nine times.
Chris Jericho is a father of three children
Chris Jericho’s girlfriend Jessica Lockhart and he have three children.
Ash Edward Irvine was born in 2003. He is the couple’s first child. Jericho and his wife had Sierra Loretta Irvine and Cheyenne Lee Irvine in 2006. He has had all three of his children as guests on more than one occasion on his podcast titled Talk is Jericho.
Because Ash knows so much about fish, he usually talks about it when he’s on Jericho’s podcast. His child says that when he grows up he wants to be an ichthyologist, which is a scientist who studies sharks and fish. Ash has appeared at Shark Week more than once.
Chris Jericho’s twin daughters had a YouTube channel
Sisi and Chey, Jericho’s daughters, used to run a YouTube channel together. It was called Sisi & Chey Vlogs & Videos.
They have uploaded some pretty amazing videos and vlogs on it. They line up a whole bunch of fake movies, all of which deserve a lot more views than they have now. It looks like they don’t have that YouTube channel anymore.
After watching a few Minecraft videos and mod shows, Sisi and Chey decided they wanted to start their own YouTube channel to share their creations with the world. Their father spoke to them on the channel for his Talk is Jericho podcast.
Before they promoted the channel on Jericho’s podcast, only 39 people saw it. However, after the promotion, that number skyrocketed to almost 1,000, making her very happy with what happened.
None of the children have said they would like to work in any way in sports or entertainment in the future.
The kids in Jericho love Star Wars very much
Like many other families, the Irvines are closer because of their love of Star Wars.
In December 2016, after The Force Awakens came out, Ash, Sisi and Chey all went to Talk is Jericho to talk about the film as a family. Sisi, his daughter, said that the film had a lot of exciting action scenes and that it was really cool how they brought back some of the old characters.
In her article about Chey, she gave the film full marks. She said the film was almost as good as the cheese, but the cheese was better than the film.
However, Chey had a few issues with the film. One of them was that Ben Solo didn’t look like his parents, Han Solo and Leia Organa. Every member of the family thought it was odd that Kylo Ren took off his mask throughout the film.
Chris Jericho’s favorite part was chasing after Rathtar while Ash’s favorite part was when they went to the Castle of Maz. The kids don’t just watch movies because they don’t care.
Ash was able to find out how old Chewbacca was between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, showing that Jericho’s kids know what they’re talking about.
The kids in Jericho don’t like wrestling
Although Chris Jericho is one of the most famous wrestlers in the world, his children are not very interested in the sport.
Ash said in an interview that he only watches the sport when his father is playing and that he doesn’t really want to make a career out of it. Jericho also said his kids get very upset when he loses, which could be one reason they don’t care about the competition as a whole.
Jericho also said that while he’s famous around the world, he’s known as “dad” at home and his kids only see WWE as where their dad works.
Jericho didn’t quite understand what it meant that his father was famous hockey player Ted Irvine growing up, so he understood what his kids were saying.
He is married to wrestler Jessica Lockhart
Chris Jericho has been married to Jessica Lockhart since 2000 and they are very happy.
The two met in Tampa, Florida thanks to WCW wrestler Disco Inferno. Jericho was working for World Championship Wrestling at the time. In the book A Lion’s Tale, Chris Jericho talks about what happened in the days after he first saw Jessica Lockhart.
He said that Lockhart had to leave the day after they met because he had a three-week trip to northern Minnesota. Despite this, they continued to do what they always did and talked on the phone every day. On this basis, they first began to talk to each other.
After she came back from Minnesota, they decided to live together as a couple. Since then, the relationship has only grown stronger.
His wife doesn’t like being in the public eye, so she does whatever it takes to keep her kids out of the limelight.
Chris Jericho has a tattoo on his ring finger that is a tribute to and a dedication to his wife. During an interview, he said that he constantly ripped his wedding ring, which made it very difficult for him to put it on and take it off.
The winner of AEW was the son of a hockey player
Chris Jericho was born to Canadian Ted Irvine and American Loretta Vivian Irvine.
He was born in the New York City of Manhasset. Ted Irvine, his father, was a hockey player for the New York Rangers. Rangers had a player named Ted Irvine. When his father stopped working, the family moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
As a child, Jericho often went to the American Wrestling Association (AWA) to watch wrestling matches. By this time he was already interested in the business, but decided that he would rather work in professional wrestling.
Especially when Owen Hart came up with Stampede Wrestling and did some high-flying moves, he realized that professional wrestling was something that interested him.
Vanessa Gerads, who works in music education, is the AEW star’s sister.
Christopher Keith Irvine was born on November 9, 1970 in Manhasset, New York. He is the son of a Canadian father and an American mother. He is from Scotland on his father’s side and from Ukraine on his mother’s side. When Jericho was born, his father, hockey player Ted Irvine, was playing for the New York Rangers. His family moved back to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where Irvine grew up when his father retired. He is a citizen of both the United States and Canada. Irvine became interested in professional wrestling when he and his family began going to American Wrestling Association (AWA) games at Winnipeg Arena. He wanted to be a professional wrestler after seeing a video of Owen Hart wrestling for Stampede Wrestling at the time and doing some high-flying moves. Irvine also said that Owen’s older brother Bret, Ricky Steamboat and Shawn Michaels were some of the reasons he wanted to be a professional wrestler. His first association with a professional wrestling promotion was when he was part of the ring crew for the inaugural tour of the newly inaugurated Keystone Wrestling Alliance. There he met independent wrestlers Catfish Charlie and Caveman Broda, who taught him a great deal about the business. He attended Red River College in Winnipeg and received a degree in Creative Communications in 1990.
Career in professional wrestling
At 19 he attended the Hart Brothers School of Wrestling. On his first day he met Lance Storm. Ed Langley and a Calgary wrestler named Brad Young helped him get ready.
Two months after he finished training, he was ready to start wrestling on independent shows. On October 2, 1990, he made his debut as “Cowboy” Chris Jericho at Moose Hall in Ponoka, Alberta, in a ten-minute tie against Storm. The two then began working together as a tag team called Sudden Impact. In a February 2019 interview with Rich Eisen on The Rich Eisen Show, Jericho said his first name would be “Jack Action.” However, someone told him that the name was silly, and when they asked him what his real name was, he got nervous and said “Chris Jericho”. He got the name Jericho from an album by the German power metal band Helloween called Walls of Jericho. Tony Condello sent Jericho and Storm on tours with Adam Copeland (Edge), Jason Reso (Christian) and Terry Gerin (Rhino) to northern Manitoba. They have also wrestled in Calgary’s Canadian National Wrestling Alliance (CNWA) and Canadian Rocky Mountain Wrestling (CRMW).
Wrestling in the Frontier Martial Arts (1991)
In 1991, Jericho and Storm toured Japan as Sudden Impact for Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling. There he met Ricky Fuji, who was also training under Stu Hart, and they became friends.
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and other Mexican events (1992–1995)
In the winter of 1992, he went to Mexico and wrestled under the moniker Leon D’Oro (“Golden Lion,” a name fans chose for him between “He-Man,” “Chris Power,” and his own choice of “Leon D ‘Oro”) and later Corazón de León (“Lionheart”) for several small wrestling companies.
From 1993 to 1995 he participated in the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre, the oldest wrestling event in Mexico (CMLL). In the CMLL, Jericho fought Silver King, Negro Casas and ltimo Dragón on his way to becoming the NWA Middleweight Champion, which he did in December 1993 and held for 11 months.
Wrestling in the Smoky Mountains (1994)
In 1994, Jericho and Storm teamed again as The Thrillseekers in Jim Cornette’s Appalachian Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) promotion. There they had fights with the likes of Well Dunn, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and The Heavenly Bodies.
