Undisputed Champion of Literature
I walked into catering and saw Vince talking talking to The Undertaker. He still hadn't said word one to me about the championship and I assumed he wasn't going to. When I went over to say hello, Vince said sarcastically, "You can tell that the business is going down the toilet when we're going to make Jericho the champion." That was the extent of Vince's big talk with me. Not exactly the vote of confidence I was hoping for, but at least I knew for sure that I was really going to be winning the title. Vince wandered away, and Undertaker said, "Do it, man. It's your time. Go out there and kick some ass." It was nice to have someone's blessing, even if it was a dead man's.
Chris Jericho's newest memoir, Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps, takes the reader through Jericho's adventures in the WWE and his band, Fozzy.
He takes the reader on a journey, starting from his first step out of the WWE curtain through his mistakes, friendships and triumphs. You feel like you are in the same room as him, and he is an old buddy catching you up on his life with great detail.
It's not just a wrestling book... as I said before, it's a journey, relatable to anyone in any business, complete with mentors, buddies, enemies and lessons we all could learn.
And, along way, he never forgets to rib fellow bestselling author Mick Foley, who has never beaten Jericho.
His first book, A Lion's Tale, was a New York Times Bestseller, and I have no doubt Undisputed will be one, too.
Undisputed is available tomorrow, and I highly recommend you get your hands on it in your favorite means. After reading my advance copy, I am hungrily waiting for Jericho to give us a trilogy.
He has a book signing scheduled for tonight at Bookends in Ridgewood, if you are reading this in time. For a complete list stops on his book tour, visit www.chrisjericho.com.
