Chris Jericho

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography: general, Autobiography: sport, Prose: non-fiction

The controversial story of Chris Jericho, the former undisputed Heavyweight Champion of WWE.

From the age of eight, Chris dreamed of becoming a wrestler. But it wasn't until he was 25 that he hit the big time. Nicknamed 'Lion Heart', Chris eventually attained his ultimate goal - joining the WWF (now WWE). He became one of their biggest stars, even defeating wrestling powerhouses The Rock and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin in the same night to be crowned the undisputed Heavyweight Champion.

Now Chris dishes the dirt on his rivalries with other wrestling legends. Whether ripped-off by promoters, robbed at gunpoint or nearly paralysed after landing on his head during a match, Chris maintained his courage, determination and sense of humour about this dangerous and enthralling sport.

Praise for A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex

  • So charming and funny is Chris Jericho's journey from body-slammingly painful naivety to worldly wrestling champ, that his memoirs will leave cynics finding time for a private read - GQ

  • Almost certainly the best wrestling autobiography I've read, and I don't give that accolade lightly. I've read this book several times and it's not any less enjoyable ... for anyone who enjoys wrestling or Jericho this is a must-read - WRESTLING101.COM

  • This is the first true epic of wrestling books and should be on the shelf of every true wrestling fan ... Hilarious, empathetic, heart warming, gross, scary and down right bleeding interesting - THEWRESTLINGTRUTH.COM
