Renowned professional wrestler and rock star Chris Jericho, famed for his spectacular two-decade-long career spanning WWE and AEW, is exploring uncharted territories, expressing an openness to the world of Broadway. Jericho, also the charismatic frontman for the rock band Fozzy, engaged in a candid conversation with The Messenger, delving into the multifaceted dimensions of his illustrious career, which include stints as an actor and a game show host.
Jericho emphasized his versatility and refusal to be pigeonholed, stating, “I never ever put myself in a box for anything that I do. I’m an entertainer. If I said I wanted to play center for the L.A. Kings, it’s probably not going to happen.
But if I say I want to do Broadway, why not?" Drawing upon his extensive experience captivating audiences worldwide, Jericho showcased his readiness to take on Broadway, saying, “I can act, I can sing. I understand what it’s like to be in front of a crowd.
Anything that’s in that world for me, I’m open to it. I could get an offer to do Broadway tomorrow, and if it came my way, I would seriously consider it. I never thought I’d get an offer to play an ex-rock star father who is now a horse breeding farmer."
