A Lion's Tale

A Lion's Tale

Around the World in Spandex


“An action-packed, uplifting, exceed-your-dreams thrill ride.” -Associated Press

Chris Jericho has been named one of the top ten best wrestlers in the world and was crowned the first undisputed heavyweight champion in professional wrestling history. But his journey from Alberta, Canada, to Vince McMahon’s WWE is a story that may never, ever happen again.

From leaving home at nineteen and training in the infamous Hart Dungeon; to dealing with his mother’s devastating injury; to becoming a national heartthrob in Mexico, a local hero in Germany, and a hated villain in Japan; to his big break in the WCW; Chris shares both the poignant and the hilarious moments of his life. With never-before-heard insights into the highly political backstage machinations of the wrestling business during the 1990s, this is Lion Heart rising from small-town dreamer to big-time superstar, living and loving in foreign lands, and proving that dreams can come true.
