A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex

A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex

by Chris Jericho (Author)

Synopsis

Chris Jericho worked his way into the big time of wrestling after training in Canada. He had his first pro fight at just 19, but it wasn't until he was 25 that he made the big time, joining the WCW. Within a year he had won his first title. Finally, in August 1999 he moved to the WWF (now WWE) where he would eventually become one of the biggest names on their books, and become the undisputed Heavyweight Champion.

In this fascinating account, he relives his early days in the sport in Mexico and Japan, and working his way up alongside Chris Benoit and Lance Storm. He also recalls his rivalries with The Rock, Steve Austin and Triple H among others. He retired from the sport in August 2005, but there have been many rumours since then of a comeback. A Lion's Tale is as honest, outspoken and direct as the man himself.
