Jericho Explains His Nerves Before His First DWTS Performance

Former WWE superstar Chris Jericho is doing some blogging for TVSquad.com to give some behind-the-scenes insight into his current involvement on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars show.

“I’ve performed in front of crowds of up to 70,000 people for more than two decades, but last week I experienced a whole different animal,” said Jericho.

“Something so foreign, so terrifying, so intimidating that, beforehand, I was as nervous as a 12-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time. Yes, kiddies, I was about to make my ballroom debut on ‘Dancing With the Stars’! After rehearsing incessantly for more than three weeks with my partner Cheryl Burke, it was finally time to do the first show.

“My dress rehearsals had been a bit shaky — performing my routine in the actual ‘DWTS’ studio was scary. Suddenly the guy who had a so-called advantage because of years of performing live was behind the eight ball.
