Chris Jericho Becomes Chris Irvine, Update On Candice Michelle
— Former WWE Women’s Champion Candice Michelle said today on Twitter that she is working an idea for a reality show involving herself and ‘a bunch of (her) fav ex divas’.
Speaking of Candice, she and fellow former WWE Diva Lilian Garcia are hosting a Tough Enough aftershow immediately following the USA Network broadcast on ustream.tv/afterbuzztv.
— The theme for Monday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars was personal stories, with the dancers choosing a song that is important to them. Chris Jericho chose The Beatles’ “Let It Be”.
In a pre-taped segment, Jericho recalled the story of his mother suffering an accident when he was training to be a wrestler, which confined her to a wheelchair until her passing in 2005. He prepared to give up wrestling but she insisted he continue pursuing his dreams.
Jericho said his real name is Chris Irvine and that for the first time in his professional life he would be performing as himself and not a character.
Introduced as Chris Irvine, he danced the rumba with partner Cheryl Burke to receive a score of 21. The judges felt he lacked technical skill but complimented him on the emotional connection.
