Christopher "Chris" Keith Irvine (November 9, 1970), best known by his ring name, Chris Jericho, a American-born Canadian professional wrestler, musician, media personality, actor, author, and businessman. who performed in WWE (who he has worked for on and off since 1999), and his time in Extreme Championship Wrestling and World Championship Wrestling, and internationally in Canadian, Mexican, German and Japanese promotions. Jericho is known for his over-the-top, rock star persona – and for a contrasting run as an aloof villain from the late 2000s to the early 2010s.

Jericho has won 30 championships between WWF/E, WCW, and ECW - the three most prominent American promotions in the 1990s and early 2000s. He is credited as being the first Undisputed WWF Champion, having unified the WWF Championship and the WCW Championship.

In WWE, Jericho is a six-time world champion, having won the WWF Championship once, the WCW Championship twice and the World Heavyweight Championship three times. He is also a record nine-time Intercontinental Champion, and the fourth WWE Grand Slam Champion.

Outside of wrestling, Jericho formed the band Fozzy, in 1999, as their lead vocalist. Their eponymous debut album (2000) and Happenstance (2002) consist of cover songs and original music; All That Remains (2005), Chasing the Grail (2010) and Sin and Bones (2012) feature all-original music. He also competed in the 2011 series of Dancing With the Stars, lasting until the sixth week. Prior to this, he hosted the ABC game show, Downfall.
