According to TMZ.com, FOZZY singer and WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho is among the celebrities who will appear on the next season of "Dancing With The Stars", a reality show which airs on ABC in the United States and CTV in Canada.
"Dancing With The Stars" is the American version of the British BBC television series "Strictly Come Dancing". Each contestant pair consists of a celebrity and a professional dancer. Each couple performs predetermined dances and competes against the others for judges' points and audience votes. Whichever couple receives the lowest combined total of judges points and audience votes is eliminated until the champion dance pair remains.
Jericho has just released a new book, "Undisputed". 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 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.
