CHRIS JERICHO has splashed out £2.45million on a stunning Florida mansion complete with its own DOCK.
The WWE legend and his wife Jessica Irvine completed the purchase earlier this month, according to Hillsborough County property records.
Sitting on almost six acres of land, the picturesque property is surrounded by greenery.
It even includes a dock which leads out onto a lake in Tampa Bay.
Jericho, his wife and three children will have plenty of space to enjoy in their new home.
The luxury house has five bedrooms, six full and three half bathrooms.
It also has an incredible open-floor plan with a gorgeous cream colour scheme running throughout.
And there are plenty of studies and lounges to relax in, with massive TVs hanging off the walls of the mansion.
Though if all that room was not enough, the Jerichos have another home just down the road in Odessa.
Jericho, 48, met Jessica in Tampa, Florida, while he was performing with WCW.
The couple married in 2000 and are parents to Ash and twin daughters SiSi and Chey.
Former WWE world champion Jericho recently revealed his contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is his most lucrative to date.
Y2J claimed he spoke to WWE chief Vince McMahon about a new deal but was blown away by AEW’s offer.
He told Wrestling Observer Radio: “In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar at this point in time to WWE as far as what I bring to the table.
“That was just the watermark I had. So, for me to go back to Vince, I was like, ‘I want that type of deal.’ Because that’s the way it should be in my mind.
“When I was starting to talk to Tony [Khan], and I was negotiating with New Japan Pro Wrestling, and even with Impact as well and Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four-match series.
“It was a really good amount of money – we’re talking mid-seven-figures. They have some cash as well.
“I think people kind of gloss over Impact at this time but when there’s something they believe in, they have the money for it. I always thought, in this day and age with the amount of money that WWE has, Vince will come through at the end and match this offer.
“And then I’m going to have to make a decision, because like I said, it wasn’t just about the money – it’s, well, now I go into Vince’s world and we know how Vince works, and that’s fine.
“If you sign a contract with WWE, you cannot complain if things change last minute, if you’re given pie-in-the-face routines on Raw.
“Whatever it may be, that’s what Vince does. That’s what Vince likes and that’s how he operates. So, you go there knowing what you’re getting in to.”
WWE superstar Roman Reigns confirmed his leukaemia is in remission in an emotional speech on last night’s Raw.
Reigns has been absent from WWE television since revealing the condition in October but returned last night and said his treatment had been a “home run” and he was in remission.
To a huge ovation from the crowd in Atlanta, he confirmed: “The Big Dog is back.”
“God’s voicemail was full,” Reigns said of the well-wishes he had received from the WWE Universe and beyond; he even went so far as to change his signature battle cry to encompass everyone who had given him strength and grace: “This is our yard.”
Reigns also said his diagnosis and battle had led to a new purpose: To use his platform as a professional wrestler to raise awareness and support for those who find themselves in a similar fight to his own.
As The Big Dog made his exit, he was joined on the ramp by Seth Rollins, who embraced his friend in an impromptu celebration of a battle well fought and a purpose renewed.
Suspended WWE Superstar Becky Lynch made a surprise appearance at Elimination Chamber in Texas and it’s one that Ronda Rousey or Charlotte Flair won’t forget in a hurry!
Lynch, suspended by Vince McMahon on Raw last week, emerged from the crowd on crutches after Flair had re-injured her knee at a weekend Live Event in Louisiana.
Moments after Raw Women’s champion Rousey had overcame Ruby Riott in a title showdown, Lynch entered the ring.
It didn’t take her long to unleash a brutal assault, using her crutches and then cutting Rousey’s head open in the process, before she was eventually led away by WWE officials.
Having chosen to wreak havoc throughout the week and effectively ignore the suspension, Lynch has antagonised the McMahon family who have a decision to make.
It’s not only Lynch who can expect drama on Monday night, The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection can expect their status as inaugural women’s tag-team champions to be tested as they begin the journey to Wrestlemania.
Elsewhere, Bobby Lashley hasn’t taken too kindly to his defeat to Finn Balor for the Intercontinental Championship – Lio Rush felt the force at Elimination Chamber while Lashley teamed up with Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre later in the night’s action.
Balor is likely to find himself the target and Lashley could well enlist one or two helping hands along the way too but, having angered The Monster Among Men, Lashley may well end up a target himself with Braun Strowman on the rampage
Both portrayed anti-establishment characters who were very popular with the fans and Austin says he feels her current act is “money”.
“She does remind me a lot of myself,” he said on Sirius XM radio. “If you line up that women’s roster and you line up that roster back in the day when I was still in the ring, and you said, ‘hey, I need you to pick out my next breakout superstar.’ I don’t think your gonna pick out Becky Lynch and I damn sure know you wouldn’t pick me out of that line-up.
“I’ve loved what she’s done, I love what she’s doing. I like her swagger. And she’s the hottest thing going right now.
“She’s not a person who’s dwelling on this being the most athletic match in the world, she’s a great worker in the ring, but it’s character driven.
“‘The Man’ – I love this gimmick. If you’re a young lady, calling yourself ‘The Man’ just like Ric Flair used to be-‘To be the man, you gotta beat the man’-but, this is a whole different entity with the way Becky presents it, and obviously, she’s a female, it’s an awesome gimmick and it’s money.”
WWE chairman Vince McMahon has admitted that the company has suffered with injuries and absences to top stars in the past year.
McMahon made the comments as part of the company’s presentation of their financial figures for 2018, a year in which they took the most revenue in their history.
WWE added revenue from their pay-per-view events in Saudi Arabia and Australia but attendances for house shows – non-televised live events – was down, especially in their North American market.
Raw and SmackDown have also seen a decline in television ratings in the United States and McMahon feels the loss of some of WWE’s top performers has played a part.
“The unfortunate aspect of sometimes in our business, is that our performers are not cartoons. They get hurt. This year, leading up to where we are now, we’ve had an inordinate number of injuries,” said McMahon.
“And when you have injuries, there’s a whole bunch of them. Roman Reigns being the principle among them.
“In addition to that, we’ve had injuries to Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, who is one of our top female performers, was injured. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Bray Wyatt, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Braun Strowman, Dean Ambrose, Ember Moon, Samoa Joe, Akam (from AOP), Jason Jordan, Fandango, Big Show, Seth Rollins. It’s like we had all these injuries, which is really unusual for us, and they’re characters.
Don’t miss out on all of the action from WWE Elimination Chamber on February 17!
“It’s no different if you’re writing a soap opera and all of a sudden your main character wasn’t there. You’re in the middle of production, what do you do? You very nimbly change the storyline, but it’s not as good as the original one.
“Sometimes it is better because we’re pretty good at it, but those are things that we’re faced with, and one of the reasons why television ratings have dropped. And one of the reasons, obviously, from a live event standpoint, that’s dropped too. Because if you don’t have your favourites on television, obviously you can’t see them at a live event either.”
WWE champion Daniel Bryan will face Jeff Hardy on tonight’s SmackDown, live on Sky Sports Arena at 1am.
Bryan will defend his championship inside the Elimination Chamber against five of SmackDown’s top superstars at the Sky Sports Box Office event on February 17, but one of those opponents, Hardy, will look to get a jump on building some momentum when he faces the champ tonight.
After the chaotic scene last week on SmackDown that saw Bryan debut a new eco-friendly WWE title belt and WWE chief Triple H announce the Elimination Chamber match (but not before Bryan disrespected all of his now-opponents in the bout), Hardy will surely be aiming to silence Bryan in this non-title singles match on the blue brand.
Can The Charismatic Enigma separate from the pack as the major title match inside the dreaded structure approaches?
Orton to face Ali
Two more Chamber rivals will also go head to head tonight when experience meets youthful enthusiasm as Randy Orton and Mustafa Ali clash in singles action.
Ali has quickly become a big deal on Tuesday nights but faces one of his toughest challenges yet when he squares off against the Viper tonight.
With both Ali and Orton entering the Chamber, each superstar will look to take the other down a peg in hopes of putting themselves in prime position to leave with the WWE title in just over two weeks’ time.
Can Ali pick up another major victory or will The Viper strike him down prior to the monumental championship showdown?
Nakamura and Rusev to join forces
After weeks of intense rivalry, Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev found themselves on the same page last week after both fell short in United States title matches against R-Truth – and The Good Brothers were not good with it.
Nakamura & Rusev laid R-Truth out with a brutal assault after being incredibly frustrated they both suffered roll-up losses with the title on the line.
After the fact, both men were confronted by Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, who were not happy with their treatment of Truth and challenged them to a match, which will go down tonight.
WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry believes Ronda Rousey is getting hate from fans because of her “greatness”, which he feels is on a par with legends from other sports.
Rousey was heavily booed on Raw this week, to the point where she had to stop her promo, leading to the early arrival of her opponent Bayley for their match.
Part of that was because she is on course to face Becky Lynch – who is adored by WWE fans – at WrestleMania, but Henry feels it was also because there is a “greatness hate” in all sports.
“Ronda falls under the same category as Michael Jordan, she falls in the same category as Larry Bird, and LeBron (James), and guys that are Kevin Durant, like, she is great,” he said on the Busted Open radio podcast.
“She suffers from the greatness hate. (Tom) Brady has been to the Superbowl nine times, he’s won five of nine. There’s a lot of quarterbacks that never get to go to a Superbowl. Why would you ever hate somebody that was better than Joe Montana? Yeah, I said it, Brady was better than Joe Montana.
“And Ronda is getting the great hate, and we’ll talk about that later, but I’m just saying, of course there’s gonna be people that has animosity against her. Because she earned a level of respect that most of us will never see.”
Henry also feels most fans dislike great sportsmen and women – Rousey included – because they have no understanding of what makes them great.
The dates have been confirmed for WWE’s annual superstar shake-up, when Raw and SmackDown trade talent.
This year, the reshuffle will take place on April 15 and 16, on the episodes of Raw and SmackDown broadcast from Montreal the week after those following WrestleMania.
The Raw and SmackDown after Mania are traditionally reserved for debuting new competitors, primarily ones called up from WWE’s developmental group NXT.
The staging of the Superstar Shake-up means there will be a great deal of change in WWE in the fortnight following the biggest event of the year, with traditionally around 15 competitors moving between the brands.
Last year’s saw some significant moves, with former SmackDown champion Jinder Mahal going to Raw alongside other main-event players such as Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler.
SmackDown took Samoa Joe, Asuka and The Bar in a major injection of talent to Tuesday nights – a theme which could again be followed this year with the blue brand due to move to a new television channel in the United States on October 19.
