  • In WCW when Chris had his "feud" with headliner Bill Goldberg, he felt that as a champion he should also have a group of security guards to escort him to the ring. So he hired two guys: Ralphus, a middle-aged fat, bald guy with a t-shirt that read Jericho Personal Security, and another guy with a mullet named Jericholic Ninja. They would parody Goldberg's entrance, but with results closer to Spinal Tap as Chris would get lost and end up walking into closets or out of the arena. When he did finally get to the ring, he would only get a small pop of sparkles instead of the major fireworks show. Later appearances only had Ralphus escorting Chris to the ring until Goldberg finally arrived and accepted the challenge.

  • Chris Jericho said in a recent interview that he got his new finisher, The Codebreaker, from watching Naomichi Marufuji do it on a Ring of Honor tape. He figured it would be a cool finisher and so he's using it now.
