There is one thing you can say about Chris Jericho: The guy sure knows how to make an entrance.

His WWE debut in 1999 as the man behind the mysterious Y2J millennium countdown was one of the most memorable moments in sports-entertainment history. But Jericho outdid himself in his "second coming" as the answer to a series of code-encrypted video eight years later. The man who will "Save_US" all is back after a two-year hiatus, and our fans couldn't be happier.

Whether he's been beloved or hated by WWE fans, Jericho has never been at a loss for words. And "Y2J" has backed up every single word he said in his storied career, winning a laundry list of championships and going down in history as the first ever Undisputed WWE Champion.

The son of former National Hockey League player Ted Irvine, Jericho was born in Manhasset, N.Y. but was raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. He trained in Stu Hart's famed dungeon and made his pro wrestling debut at age 19 in 1990. Jericho wrestled around the world and infused different styles he learned in Canada, Mexico and Japan into his own repertoire. He slowly built a following what would become loyal "Jerichoholics" before appearing in ECW (where he briefly held the ECW TV Championship) and then landing in WCW in 1996. Jericho would rise to new heights of stardom when he entered World Wrestling Entertainment in the summer of 1999.

Jericho's rivalries with Chyna, The Rock, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Rob Van Dam and Christian were legendary for both their in-ring intensity and comic vignettes outside the ring. Hardly any titles were safe when he was around. Besides holding the European and Hardcore Championships, the self-proclaimed "Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla" won the Intercontinental Championship seven times and held the World Tag Team Championship three times with three different partners. But Jericho cemented his place in WWE history on December 9, 2001 at Vengeance, when he beat both The Rock for the WCW Championship and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin for the WWE Championship to unify both titles and become the first Undisputed WWE Champion. Jericho's WWE championship was brief he lost the title to Triple H three months later at WrestleMania X8 but no one could take away his accomplishment.

Y2J's WWE career appeared to end in August 2005 when he lost a You're Fired Match to then-WWE Champion John Cena on Raw. Jericho pursued an acting career, continued touring with Fozzy and appeared on VH1's Best Week Ever and I Love The '80s. He has also hosted his own show on XM Satellite Radio called The Rock of Jericho and released his biography, A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex.

Despite his numerous projects, the multitalented Jericho cannot get enough of the squared circle. Behold the second coming of Jericho. Who knows what the rebirth of his in-ring career will bring. One thing is certain, as Y2J would say, WWE fans are not likely to see anyone like him ever evvvveerrrr again!

NOTES: OK, that's one awesome Jericho if u ask me. I'm lovin' the angles on the entrance. Unfortunately, I had to mute the volume on my computer 'cause that music was all shit if u ask me. Damn, I'm just glad there's a feature to import music for this year's game.

I read somewhere that he has an alternate attire,I wonder if it's the short tights.
But yeah I'll probably be Chris Jericho 75% of the time, Shelton,John Morrison or Cena 25% of the time.

I think the music is from the last WWE The Music CD, it sounds like the King Of My World track. They've probably just added extra tracks in to choose from, like the original Hardyz music and the No More Words track.

Btw, what's with the ref's delay before counting? :2

yeah i checked its from the last wwe album. i hope they have his real music because as of yesterday's raw he still has the same one since he returned in august. i'm thinking his alternate attire will still be long tights, most likely the black & red ones with the logo that was on one of his shirts.

I would like for him not to have the short tights attire. He should also have his music.
