FOZZY frontman and wrestling superstar Chris Jericho joined HELLOWEEN onstage during the German metallers’ concert last night (Friday, June 2) at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, California to perform the HELLOWEEN song “Best Time”. Fan-filmed video of his appearance can be seen below.

HELLOWEEN‘s 1985 album “Walls Of Jericho” was the inspiration behind Chris‘s wrestling moniker.

Born Christopher Keith Irvine in Manhasset, New York, Chris grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada where he recently had a street named after him.

A few years ago, in an interview with Larry KingJericho explained how he got his stage name. He said: “They wanted me to be a cowboy when I first started [wrestling]. And I hated cowboys and stuff. So they wanted me to be, like, ‘Cowboy Chris Casper‘ or something like that. I needed a name quickly, and there was a cassette tape of this German heavy metal band; the album was called ‘Walls Of Jericho’. And I was, like, ‘I don’t wanna be ‘Cowboy Chris Casper‘; I’ll be ‘Chris Jericho‘.’ ‘All right, Chris Jericho it is.'”

FOZZY started off nearly two and a half decades ago as a cover band called FOZZY OSBOURNE, with Chris initially taking on the persona of “Moongoose McQueen.”
