It is amazing how a creative mind and a bit of whimsy can totally revolutionize someone’s character for the better. For Chris Jericho, he has made sure to have multiple incarnations of his persona throughout his time in the WWE. When he first debuted in 1999, interrupting The Rock, he announced himself as the “Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah.” This carried on until he donned more of a cocky personality during the Invasion era and surprisingly bested both The Rock and Steve Austin to become the undisputed WWE Champion in 2001.

After being stricken with numerous face and heel turns, the “Save Us Y2J” campaign videos commenced, asking viewers if they could break the code. He returned as a face again in 2007 after a two-year hiatus, feuding with both Randy Orton and JBL. Also, during this time (which involved yet another heel turn), he would become involved in one of the best and most compelling feuds of his career against Shawn Michaels.

Jericho would also have one of his best heel runs of his career during this run, playing a self-righteous character who would call the fans “parasites, troglodytes, and sycophants.” This led to both his ninth Intercontinental Championship run, as well as his sixth World Heavyweight Championship run. In 2011, Jericho commenced an “End of the World as You Know It” gimmick, feuding with CM Punk for the WWE Championship. He would make another face turn during his feud with Dolph Ziggler, before being forced to exit the company after a match with Ziggler. He would once again leave the WWE and pop up when his schedule outside the company allowed.
