Justin Norton of Decibel has interviewed Chris Jericho about Blood Division, Fozzy and his wrestling career.
Chris Jericho is one of the most decorated professional wrestlers ever: a six-time world champion and the first-ever undisputed WWE champion. He was ranked the promotion’s greatest ever Intercontinental Champion. Jericho is also one of the most vocal celebrity metal fans on the planet as well as a metal musician who has toured the world repeatedly with his band Fozzy.
Jericho’s latest project, however, might be the only one that could earn the extreme moniker; a digital EP from the group Blood Divisions that features Dave Austin (Nasty Savage), Ralph Santolla (Deicide and Iced Earth), Terry Butler and Greg Gall (Six Feet Under) and other guest musicians. The EP — which will benefit an animal charity — includes a cover of Nasty Savage’s “The Morgue” and a cover of the Scorpions classic “Top of the Bill.” The wrestling legend known as “Y2J” talked to Decibel about this unlikely collaboration and the ties between metal and wrestling.
