Chris Jericho – Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About
8. Why He Started
Jericho, like many wrestlers, had wanted to be in the ring for most of his life. In an interview, he stated:
“[I was a] big fan of it as a kid. I used to watch it with my grandmother. And I kind of decided when I was 14 this was what I wanted to do. So, I went to train with the Hart Brothers Pro Wrestling Camp in Calgary, which was about 12 hours away from Winnipeg.”
There is no doubt that this was a risky move, but thankfully it paid off for him! When you have other legends like Bret Hart and Chris Benoit who had similar training, it is easy to see why Y2J was as polished a wrestler as he was.
