Chris Jericho has offered his reaction to surprise recent comparisons with legendary pop singer Britney Spears.
Jericho is certainly no stranger to the music world. The former AEW World Champion has been the front man and vocalist for rock band Fozzy since their inception in 1999. The group has so far released eight albums, all recorded whilst Jericho remained active in the world of pro wrestling.
Their popular song, “Judas,” is used by Jericho as his AEW entrance theme and the band recently performed the track live at Wembley Stadium in London as Jericho made his way to the ring for a bout with Will Ospreay at All In.
Jericho was, somewhat surprisingly, recently asked for his views on a comment on social media site ‘X’ that suggested a photo of Britney Spears showed the singer as having a similar body type as the former WWE Undisputed Champion.
I wish I was as jacked as her! https://t.co/5skJW8SZfC

Jericho responded to the comment in hilarious fashion, noting that he wished he was as ‘jacked’ as the 41 year-old who is probably still best known for her best-selling debut track ‘…Baby one more time’.
How Did Chris Jericho Lose Weight In 2022?
The former WWE Intercontinental Champion is no stranger to questions of the body after being admitted to hospital in the UK at the end of 2021 where he received treatment for what was described at the time as a “non COVID” related issue, which was eventually diagnosed as a pulmonary embolism.
Jericho understandably gained some weight after being forced onto the sidelines as he recovered, but later revealed on Talk Is Jericho that a chance meeting with the owner of a weight-loss clinic kick-started his latest fitness journey:
“I did every health procedure that you need to do. I did. And one of the things was I wanted this very intricate scale and the scale that measures everything. And one of the things that measured is your visceral fat. Well, what’s visceral fat? visceral fat is the fat that surrounds your organs. And he said, You need to lose some visceral fat. Well, how do you lose visceral fat? Well, you lose weight.
Go back to New Year’s Eve. I was with my wife in Tampa. We went there ourselves because there was nothing going on. We met a couple there where the guy had just opened a medical weight loss clinic in Tampa. Fate, hello. So I said well, I’m gonna go to this medical weight loss clinic because I have to lose this visceral fat.”
