Career Crumbles After Mother's Illness; Age, Height, Weight

Chris Jericho (real name: Christopher Keith Irvine), 48, made his debut in the wrestling ring at the age of 19. His parents, Ted and Loretta Irvine, have always been supportive of his career. 

Despite being the son of a former hockey player, Chris was never interested in the sport and was instead a fan of wrestling during his childhood. He even joined the Hart Brothers School of Wrestling after finishing his high school to receive formal training.

But, his career nearly ended when his mother had paralysis, and he had to return to Calgary, Canada to be close to his mother. However, he continued with the fights after Loretta asked him to follow his dreams.

Although not gigantic like his some of his fellow wrestlers, Chris' substantial height of 5 feet 10 inches and weight of 102 kgs (224 pounds), was helpful to him while defeating his competitors.
