News on Chris Jericho, Jerry Springer

– From Jim Alvino: I recently interviewed Chris Jericho about the Fozzy album.

– The Ottawa Sun has a story on Monday’s Raw host Jerry Springer. He talks about watching wrestling with Antonino Rocca and Haystacks Calhoun as a kid: “It’s all a circus and it’s all entertainment. If you’re prepared to take it in the spirit in which it’s given, then you can really enjoy it and have a great time. If you’re going to sit back and just be in judgment of all this, then you’re not going to have a good time. The fact is, particularly young people enjoy it, love it [and] they don’t grow up to be dysfunctional because they see it. A whole nation has watched wrestling for the last 50 years on television. One thing that is very clear when you watch professional wrestlers is what phenomenal athletes they are.” (credit: The Wrestling Globe Newsletter)
