Description

The eagerly awaited follow-up to the New York Times bestselling A Lion's Tale documents Chris Jericho's meteoric rise to wrestling glory in the WWE.

A Lion's Tale gave readers a portrait of Jericho as a young man. Fighting his way through Mexico, rinky-dink leagues and a battery of thieving, sleazy promoters/managers, the book ended with the author's WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) debut. Never one to leave his fans hanging, as demonstrated by his recent return to wrestling glory, Jericho now tells the story of life in the big leagues. But "making it" in the premier wrestling league in the world comes with its own set of obstacles and hard lessons. Jericho, in his witty, hilarious, and surprisingly endearing manner, lays it all out: the good, the bad, and the spandex.

    This book blended Jericho's wwe and fozzy careers seemlessly. While I had little interest about his band as I began reading, I found the stories quite interesting. I read through those chapters with the same speed and interest as the wrestling chapters. Jericho's over confidence and attitude can be off putting at times. As I read his frustration at wrestling on Sunday Night Heat for several months, not being booked on an isolated ppv, contract perks involving first class air fare, and high dollar contracts-I had trouble sympathizing with him after reading Hardcore Holly's 15 year mid-card battle without winning a major title and being relegated as a talent to put over the rising stars. Yes, Jericho is an excellent performer but his drive to be the best saw him putting 'the show must go on' mentality above certain life events that I simply had trouble relating to- despite that, I enjoyed his honesty and him being comfortable enough to tell the stories he did.

    Reading Undisputed to the part where I started watching wrestling I could see Vince had great pride in Jericho and wanted to make him the best he could. Jericho did a great job proving why he is the best in what he does. Reading about how Fozzy started and now I know why they tour Europe so much. Overall Jericho did a great job writing his memoirs and I cried when he talked about Eddie and Benoit. I can not wait for the follow up.
